Technology In Education Can Transform Lives

SHAILA on January 22, 2013

Technology has made learning ubiquitous today. Plenty of content and free educational programs are available online and learning has left the confines of a traditional classroom. This is a robust move, and its implications will be felt far and wide.

In this context, let’s explore the gender inequality issues prevalent in some regions which hinder girl students from going to school. Denying a girl her education is tantamount to depriving a family, society, economy and nation of its prosperity.  These girls can arm themselves with knowledge through virtual teaching programs. Will it then be farfetched to say that technology in education is powerful enough to transform nations?

Another innovative use of technology, speech synthesis, touches lives of students who struggle with learning difficulties, attention disorder, low visibility or mobility, according to O'Neill. Also known as text-to-speech (TTS), these built-in capabilities in mobile devices produce an audio output for text input and allow applications to use this technology easily. Differently-abled students can now study with others instead of going to segregated schools.     

Mobile learning gadgets have turned miniature and portable, veritably fitting knowledge in every young hand. The touch screen allows high level of user interactivity. Plenty of apps create a uniform platform of education and make it interactive and interesting.

Gaming is one such tool which turns a subject interesting and leads to a deeper understanding of its matter, says Mallory Smith in her article dealing with technology and education. Students can now learn at different speeds and teachers will modify pedagogy accordingly.

The impact of technology in education is immense, and its magnitude limited only by two factors.

  • The teacher in whose hands technology is placed, and how he or she embraces it, and
  • Support for teachers and innovative teaching methods at the school or district leadership level.

Nancy Kassebaum, U.S.Senator, succinctly voiced this concern, when she said, "There can be infinite uses of the computer and of new age technology, but if the teachers themselves are not able to bring it into the classroom and make it work, then it fails.” At Mobicip, we are proud to play our part in this transformation by helping create a safe internet for young users.
