Technology in schools : Then v/s Now

Since the past few years technology has transformed our lives in many different ways, especially how people learn. Education has come a long way, with the introduction of technology in schools, from learning under the trees to learning in highly equipped classes. There are whiteboards instead of the traditional blackboard, and the children using laptops or tablets instead of textbooks. Not just this, to support and enhance the teaching, there are various apps, websites, videos.

Communication and collaboration have enabled on a new level by tools like “G-Suite” and “Microsoft Office 365”.It truly distributed the traditional classroom to a point where learning can take place anytime and anywhere. Collaborative workspaces and communications with teaching staff have become as easy as opening Google Classroom in your browser. Learning is becoming more collaborative.

With the boom in range of technology in schools, the rise of smartboards, digital textbooks and, most notably, the tools offered on the Internet, many people are concerned about the replacement of teachers with technology. However, this is not true, teaching and technology are mutually inclusive.

As bill gates, principal founder of Microsoft Corporation, once said “Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is the most important. ” The use of technology in school does not lessen the importance of teachers in schools. Though there has been a dramatic increase in online courses and use of technology in school, this in no respect reduces the importance of teachers.

Like the invention of calculators, did not replace written mathematics. Same is the case with technology and teachers.
