Have you imagined how schooling would have been today on the part of learners and tutors without technology? I guess it would have been a bit difficult. With the use of smartphones, computers, and other gadgets, learning has been easier. Technology has indeed made schooling very efficient. These devices have helped a lot of learners including me. Imagine running to the internet to source for more clarifications during those lecture boring days in the university. Some lecturers do not create sufficient time for learners, they just do some periphery kind of teaching and expect the students to know it all. My course requires practical learning, and I can't count a lot of times the YouTube video came to my rescue. A lot of students have many testimonies about the impact of technology in their lives, indeed, it can never be underestimated.

How did technological devices help me during my schooling?

Technology was a great help to me in terms of research. Several times, I was presented with topics for seminar presentations. These were presentations that involved outside Dental practitioners as the audience. All thanks to technology, I made my smartphone my best friend. I could research the topic, read my textbooks as well, combine the information and deliver. No student will pass the four walls of the university without carrying out a carrying, it's a must, so aside from my regular academic activities, my smartphone helped me greatly during my project. It also saved me money, when I didn't have money to buy all the needed textbooks, I download such in pdf files, then make my note through them, just with data alone. It was the affordable means of learning and is still affordable even now because whatever you can think of, you could virtually get on the net. Even while in transit, I didn't need to overload myself with books 📚, I had what I needed to read on my phone until I return to school. The assignment is being done online and students could see their grades as well online, Learning was made easier indeed.

Did they constitute distractions or they were of great help

Distraction is inevitable. I wouldn't lie, sometimes I was distracted while using these gadgets. At times I will be focused on reading a particular content and before I know it, some info will pop up and I will check, from there I may receive a WhatsApp message from a friend, and at the end of the day, my expected result for the day would be limited. Although this didn't happen all the time, most times I tried to discipline myself and sometimes I succumbed to the distractions. I should blame learners on the part of the distraction because it's in our hands to control it and remain focused while learning.

What I think about the future of education concerning technology

With the level of transformations now in education due to technology, I think the future will be brighter. Scientists do not stop with their innovations, of course, so it's going to just be a more digitalized world!

This post was inspired by the #hivelearners community contest on the topic titled, TECHNOLOGY ON EDUCATION



Yes, you're right @nkemakonam89. Technology helps a lot to everyone. It makes our life much easier and better.

With the technology around us, we cannot deny that it helps us connect with our friends around the world and be updated on what is happening.

Exactly...there are lots of advantages of tech in human lives
Thanks for checking my blog

I don’t even want to imagine how Education would be like without technology. Lol, okay let’s imagine the lecturer asks his students to buy and read 30 books. Thanks to technology they can just download those books on their phone instead of carrying books up and down.

The future of education is indeed bright.

Thanks for sharing.

You guys in school are really enjoying tech. You know what, in the future, the kids of today will enjoy it better because things will keep changing for good 😊

Totally agree with this.
Nowadays it's really hard to cope up with school works, especially when tasked with project's, PowerPoint presentation's or reporting's.

I too got distracted for a while using gadgets.Lol

Yea, power points presentation..I just remembered this part as well...all thanks to tech. Distractions are there but try 😂👍

The distraction is practically inevitable. I'm sure if God were to use phone to study, he'd be distracted too because the temptation is high. Lol😁

Nice write up👏

Hahaha 😂😂😂
Fear God oo 😂
Why calling God here 🤣

God abeg, no mind me.
Forgive your son🙌

I think WhatApp message distractions can't just stop academians from ascertaining the impact of technology on learning. Good to hear you browse the dividends of the internet using just your smartphone.

Really? My dear it can. My sister staying with me once failed her jamb because of too much WhatsApp chat. Each time she carry her book to learn, next thing, you will see her thing, she will doze off 😂😊👍

That was too bad of her. Honestly, I don't fancy much chatting but instead, convert it to what I can do to make a living.

Imagine studying on your phone and an headline like “how to make a guy succumb to your order ”, tell me, won't you click to read more? 😂😂😂😅 That's a distraction!

they just do some periphery kind of teaching and expect the students to know it all

Don't mind them. Some lecturers are daft as they don't know anything but it is left for students to explore more online to better understand what is being taught.

The future of Education is bright through technology because scientists do not stop bringing more innovations.

Hahaha 😂😂😂
This ur heading eehh...if na me, I go read am oo 😂

Exactly my dear, things will keep changing with the new innovations

Who wouldn't open to click it? 😂😂😂 I trust my gender.

Hahaha 😂😂👍

Truly technology has been a great help in schools. Immediately I completed my secondary school many year ago I was privileged to learn how to use a computer, little did I know it was going to take over the world and help to deliver a lot of academic projects. It was and still is a great help to me.
I must commend the smiles on your picture, it's contagious🥰

My dear , that early time computer training helped me as well. Nowadays, kids in primary school are already using computer for academics...I wonder how the future will be..nice 👍🙂 of course.

Thanks for commending my smile 😊

There is not a need to discipline but discipline extremely..... oh! It is really difficult to avoid looking at the pop up notifications on a smart phone al the time. At least, that's me facing this 😳

There is no doubt that technology has positive impacts on education. Cost effectiveness is one thing. The other include quick access to information, time saving, fast

Extreme discipline 😂😂😂👍
Not only facing distractions oo , many people my dear

Yea, quick access to information 👌👌


I thought I was the only that depended more on YouTube videos, I trusted YouTube videos more than I trusted my lecturers.

Hahaha 😂😂😂
Digital child you are 😊👍
