Technology is a curveball that educators have yet to square up. Promises of “interactive learning” often give way to reality. A pupil is more likely to use an iPad for Minecraft than the latest educational app. This is just as they learned how to spell “BOOBS” on their calculator back in the day.
But with proper deployment, technology could be a boon for learning. Tech isn’t going anywhere, after all, its impact on the classroom has been largely detrimental to this point.
There is no single aspect in our daily life that could be separated from a form of education, whether is formal or not. Pretty much, all technological improvements, health science discoveries, transformations in the energy sector, manufacturing chain steps and many other core activities of our lifestyle have emerged from a learning process.
Creative minds and thought leaders acknowledge education as a key factor to reach higher states of self and business development. At the same time, innovation and progress have an influence on it and reshape the path to where it’s headed.
