INTRODUCTION
The era of 21st century is often regarded as an era of

technology. Technology, today, plays a very important role


in our life. It is seen as a basis of growth of an economy.
An economy which is poor in technology can never grow

in todays scenario. This is because technology makes


our work much easier and less time consuming.
The impact of technology can be felt in every possible

field one such field is Education.

What Is Technology ?
Technology is a term that refers
to a body of knowledge that is employed to generate
tools, create skills, and choose materials for human use.

Technology includes the use of

materials, tools,

techniques, and sources of power to make life easier or


more pleasant and work more productive.

What is Education?
Education in its general sense is a form of
learning in which the knowledge, skills,
and habits of a group of people are
transferred from one generation to the
next through teaching, training, or
research.

board that allows the
teacher to project an
image from a laptop to
the front of the room and
the teacher can then
digitally draw on that
image.

They give them the option of


recording their notes for long
period of time .
Most classes require student to
do a lot of reports and
presentations. You want a
computer that will get this job
done better than the rest.
This allows for students to be
more in tune with their learning
by allowing them to have their
own personal computer.

states Teacher training is one of the most
important elements in a successful technology
effort. If teachers do not have the understanding
or the skills to use technology, then technology
integration will have little impact.

IMPACT

POSITIVE

ENHANCED TEACHING AND LEARNING

Technological developments like digital cameras,


projectors, mind training software, computers,
PowerPoint presentations, 3D visualization tools; all
these have become great sources for teachers to help
students grasp a concept easily.

It has to be understood that visual explanation of


concepts makes learning fun and enjoyable for students.
They're able to participate more in the classroom and
even teachers get a chance to make their classes more
interactive and interesting.

GLOBALIZATION
When schools in different
parts of the state , students
can meet" their counterparts
through video conferencing
without
leaving
the
classroom.
Some
sites,
such
as
www.glovico.com are used to
help students learn foreign
languages online by pairing a
group of students with a
teacher from another country.

NO GEOGRAPHICAL
LIMITATIONS
With the introduction of online degree programs there is
hardly any need of being present physically in the
classroom. Even several foreign universities have
started online degree courses that student can join.
Distance learning and online education have become
very important part of the education system nowadays.

IMPACT

NEGATIVE

DECLINING WRITING SKILLS


Due to the excessive usage of online chatting and
shortcuts, the writing skills of todays young generation
have declined quite tremendously.
These days, children are relying more and more on
digital communication that they have totally forgot about
improving their writing skills.
They dont know the spelling of different words, how to
use grammar properly or how to do cursive writing

INCREASING INCIDENTS OF
CHEATING
Technological developments like graphing calculators,
high tech watches, mini cameras and similar equipment
have become great sources to cheat in exams.
It is easier for students to write formulas and notes on
graphing calculators, with least chances of being caught.

LACK OF FOCUS
SMS or text messaging has become a favourite pastime
of many students. Students are seen playing with their
cell phone, iPhones day and night or driving and very
often even between lectures.
Being ever-connected to the online world has resulted in
lack of focus and concentration in academics and to
some extent, even in sports and extra curricular
activities.

It makes students more excited to learn


Help students with busy schedules, freedom to work at
home on their own time
Train students to learn new technology skills they can
use later in the work place
Decrease paper and photocopying costs, promoting
concept of "green revolution"

Many experts and experienced people say that, due


to such technology in education, students
imagination is affected, their thinking ability is
reduced.
Also its sometime time-consuming from teachers
point of view.
It is costly to install such technology.
There can be health issues too when used over limit.
some students can't afford modern computer
technologies

CONCLUSION
In the conclusion
Technology has a very positive impact on education and
at the same time may also pose negative effects.
Teachers, and students should take advantage of this in
the good light and eliminate the drawbacks which are
pulling back many of students as well as schools from
achieving excellence
it is thus time for every country to introduce a
more technologically equipped education sector in the
future.
