The age of modern learning has dawned. It is no longer a question of whether we want to integrate technology and education; it is a necessity. Reality poses an immense problem and threat to long-standing educational institutions, most of which have remained unchanged for almost a century. Who would have thought that the letter “E” of the alphabet would forever turn the face of education into education?
Technology in education has evolved from basic tools such as the abacus, pencil, ruler, paper and calculator to computers, laptops, iPads, tablets, software, and apps. Technological advances alone are forcing the way teachers teach, how students learn, how schools are structured and breaking the boundaries between home and school life. At its core, technology influences the essence of humanity’s future.
