Essay:
 
3Today is the era of technology. Every field of the life has undergone acomplete change under technology. Technology is dominant and prevalent everywhere andin every object. Technology surpassed boundaries and given us new ways to go throughand new scenes to look at. Not only it has changed our living style, that isa great change, and behavior but also our way of thinking. Technologyhas made world fast by making it purpose oriented, that is, provided us prerequisites for actions and activities. Now we do not think how to go tothe America but why to go because journey is not a problem today, in the past rather it was an important consideration. Same is the case witheducation and learning.The most affected area by technology is the
Education
. It has changed the needsand demands of students as well as their environment in class and in home. A revolutionhas occurred in this field. Some people take into account its negative impacts but, infect thewhole change in this world today is due to the nonstop progress in education because of technology.In the following paragraphs we will be looking at a little history of advent of technology in education that how technology enrolled in this field and what are the changes brought about by technology in our learning environment today. We will cover its impacton students
education life and that how in turn it has affected the society and culture of nations. We will also try to speculate the future of the society and learning environmentregarding technology in our lives.History of the technology enrollment in learning environment is more evolutionarythan revolutionary. These changes occurred over a period of years, as teachers and students become more experienced with technology. The first significant technological change thatwas reflected in education was the invention of typography, though it took severalcenturies before books were available for every student'sindividual education. Of course, in education, it is not the steamengine, with which the beginning of technological progress isassociated, but for example, the famous inventor Thomas AlvaEdison had the idea of replacing the textbooks with motion pictures. Similar ideas appeared with the emergence of  phonograph, radio broadcasting, tape players, TV as well asvideo. These attempts were rather unsuccessful. None of theseaids replaced standard textbooks nor changed classical instruction methods. The form of one-way information transfer, such as in public broadcasting, prevents individual learning, because it does not reflect individual needs. The sequential presentations such as tapes andvideos, etc. do not allow for working with the information needed. Therefore these meansonly played a role of supplementary material.Similar attempts were noticed in the 70's and 80's, when first personal computersreached the markets. There were suggestions that computers would soon replace not onlytextbooks, but also even teachers. These hopes turned out vain again. Instead of the subjectmatter the students were keener on gaining the best results, which was often possiblewithout relevant knowledge.Today we find ourselves in similar situation, but on a different level and withdifferent consequences. Interconnected computers are able to play the role of all the above-mentioned technical aids including textbooks. There is no need to wait for the exact timethe desired information is broadcasted or to walk to the library or video stores
