LEARNING WITH TECHNOLOGY


In this digital age, technology is becoming a fixed part of the classroom and changing how teachers structure their classes. Read about why it is important students are using technology in the classrooms, even from a very young age.

The New Digital Syllabus

Computer literacy is being recognized as a must-have skill for today's students. According to Benjamin Herold- Education Weekly, in 2015-16, more state standardized tests for elementary and middle grades were administered via technology than by paper and pencil. Learning with technology opens a world of discovery and information for children, while it also helps them prepare for the interconnected, global world.

Digital Trends

For many parents, shopping lists for back-to-school included a tablet or laptop. Endless types of software and apps are available to empower students to learn using programs that are designed to fit their interests and learning approach.

Education Weekly goes on to say that many schools use a variety of digital resources for benefits such as being able to personalize, high levels of engagement and better interactivity, as well as the ability to keep subject matter updated and current.

Preparing for the Future

An analysis by Carl Frey and Michael Osbourne, predicts that 47 percent of U.S. jobs are at risk to automation and artificial intelligence in the future. Although automation is starting to replace manual labor and repetitive jobs, the need for workers with science, technology, engineering, math, creative and social skills will continue to grow.

Technology will not replace the importance of face-to-face interaction with a teacher, but by helping students learn technology skills at an early age they will gain the skills they need to help them prepare for their futures.
