From the day it was created, technology has been taking over our lives. Today, its reign is stronger than we could have ever imagined. Developing faster than ever, technology is pulling the world in a certain direction. Everything is now accessible online. Eventually, we will be entering a society completely based on technology and the sooner we prepare ourselves the better.
All around the world, some schools have seen that this change is inevitable. They started promoting the use of technology within the school. In some schools, students are now allowed to use laptops or tablets for their classwork. This changed the entire concept of education as we know it. Instead of notebooks, textbooks, pens and pencils, all these tools are now combined in an iPad. Physically, the weight that the students have to carry has lessened, but the use of iPads in class gives students the opportunity to play games and not pay attention. However, this should not be a problem for a vigilant teacher with a well-planned lesson.
Though some students have a hard time adapting to the change, in order to be ready to face the kind of society the future holds, it is extremely important to be able to effectively use these gadgets in every area of our lives.
