Task; Essay

Some people think that using modern technology for educational purposes helps students learn more and faster. What do you think are some of the benefits of using technology in the classroom? Give specific examples to support your view.

Nowadays, the invasion of technology in our daily life and more specifically in education is considered a wide spread phenomenon. The possibilities and the innovative ways of teaching, technology offers us are countless and immensely essential in order to succeed an alternative lesson which combines both modern technology tactics and traditional methods of teaching.

As far af I am concerned, one of the most important advantages of digital learning is that helps us go paperless since today, it is incredibly necessary to minimize paper use in order to gain additional energy. Furthermore, one of the most obvious perks of technology use is that students are able to enjoy a wide variety of interactive activities which makes the lesson more interesting and motivating for them and as a result leads to the creation of flipped classrooms to wit, the ideal classrooms in which students and teachers interact and influence each other.

What is more, the online communication through video chats with other foreign students and teachers and also, the online lessons among the class are some of the most entertaining and openminded technology's use results. However, last but not least, through digital education,  both students and teachers have easier and quicker access to information and in addition, new activities for all the learning styles (visual, auditory and kinesthetic) could be created with the contribution of technology.

To sum up, technology is blessing if we utilise it and use it wisely. However, such as in everything, its overuse could lead in undesirable results. So, to conclude, we should reap technology's benefits and follow it in magic, unexplored paths...!
