Technology has revolutionized our world and daily lives, over the years. Technology has created marvelous tools and resources, putting useful information at our fingertips. Modern technology has paved its way for multi-functional devices like smartphones and smartwatches. Computers are being produced more faster, portable and highly powered than before. With all of these revolutions, technology has made our lives easier, faster, better and more fun.
It has affected the education and social life of society. In the previous article, I talked about ‘Technology and Teachers’, here this will be a perfect example of where technology has changed the style of education for teachers. Back in time teachers used to teach on a blackboard; which then, as time passed was changed to a whiteboard. A decade back the teachers adapted to smartboards as well for interactive sessions with the students and now due to the pandemic teachers have reshaped the teaching style by giving online lectures.
Technology in the 21st century has given both Positive and Negative sides to the world. It has saved us time and resources by giving us more privilege than we’ve ever had. Technological advancement is one of the trademarks for determining the development of a country. Technologies have made things faster and more efficient as there are many new technologies which can seem overwhelming to adapt.
