Literature Review On The Use Of Technology In Education

Technology : does technology help or hinder the student.

Throughout this course, a new perspective has provided us with the opportunity to take a look at many of the different ways in which the digital world has become one of the most dominant viewpoints of today’s generation, and how technology has taken over and welcomed itself into many aspects of our lives. This course paper will take a look at one topic of interest in particular, which in hopes will shed some light on a heavily discussed topic in the education world: does technology help or hinder the student. This paper will look to prove the point and discover more about the way in which technology has been incorporated into the classroom, both in an elementary context as well as a post-secondary context, and the effects that it has had on the student, the teacher, and the overall academic development that accompanies it.

The Effects of Technology in Education

Modern technology has penetrated every aspect of our lives and made great impacts on our daily activities, especially in the area of education. The continuous infusion of technology in education has become an unchangeable tendency. Given the increased use of technology in education, much research has been done on the value of technology in education. However, none of the studies have answered all of the questions that are essential to determining whether continuous infusion of new technologies in education can improve the quality of education. Since a clear answer to this question is vital to help educational organizations to make decisions on how much

Role Of Technology In Education

Education plays a vital role in shaping tomorrow’s leaders. Education is the process of giving or receiving systematic instruction, especially at a school or university. There are many reasons why one would need an education. For example, having an education can help someone obtain an exceptional job, increase their knowledge, and even increase their earnings potential. Obtaining an education is not only learning math, science, or history, but it also teaches people about the world around them. Having knowledge about the world can teach people about other cultures and different types of lifestyles. People can also learn about different and higher paying jobs. Another way to gain knowledge is through technology. Technology plays a significant role in education. The role of technology in education is to enhance learning.

Mentorship Program

There are so many avenues to experience by using technology from research to presentation. For example, the use of classroom-to-classroom video chatting, such as a debate between two classes on a particular subject, can help students learn in a quicker manner and help them understand the topic at a higher degree. The use of iPads early on in elementary school and the introduction to computers that many children don’t receive would be beneficial later on in life. In today’s society, technology is used extensively in the workforce. Having the proper up-to-date technology can help the student better succeed and stay on top of the growing world. Utilization of technology will now prepare students for a better future. Schools should provide more ways to use technology in order to prepare students for a better

Technology's Impact On Productivity In The United States Over The Last Ten Years

In education: technology has change the way teacher teaches and how students learn. Technology has been proven to put teachers in a better position in monitoring and tracking their student’s progress and achievements. For example, the use of technology has made it possible for University of People to be in existence. Without technology we will not be here today discussing about its impact on

Analysis Of Article Unplugged: The Myth Of Computer In The Classroom

With the advancement of the technology, it immerses more and more in our everyday life. It surrounds us, helps us to overcome the problems that arise and assists in our everyday life. At the same time, it also surrounds our children who have to learn how to deal with the emerging technological environment. The ever growing importance of the computer technologies has also evolved to be used in the classroom for educating children. It is no doubt that such inclusion is necessary, considering the developments of our society.

Childhood Education Classroom: An Analysis

The most basic principle of technology is a piece of paper and pen. Due to the abundant usage of applying technology like: tablets, computer desktops and laptops, programs, and websites, they are individually affecting the traditional forms of learning in negative ways (Black, 617). Although, technology can have some forms of promoting positive learning abilities, there are very mixed concerns with everyday usage versus it only being applied when needed for the curriculum. For example, computer literacy is accepted as an integral and crucial part of learning class materials, especially for childhood class projects. Most information is obtainable online via children scholarly websites and school databases. Without an essential school district website, many parents would not be able to view certain important dates, upcoming events for their children to attend; whereas children whom learn to use computer databases for school projects will have the ability to find sources and an abundance of information. Nowadays, it has been proven that children who are much more literate with navigating the Internet, all of its properties, and how computers work in general will be expected to know how to use computers in their near future (Black, 617). Studies also have shown that amongst many educators, using technological tools for educational purposes may be considered a hindrance in regards to adapting and learning the new ways of technology compared to the traditional ways of educating. But, since children are now brought into a society that is extremely literate in operating and navigating these technological devices inside and outside of the classroom, teachers ensure that they are using these devices and programs inside the classrooms for educational purposes throughout the entire curriculum (Black, 617).

Thesis On Technology In Schools

Technology has turned into a paramount piece of our lives these days. Amid the recent years, technology has advanced from various perspectives and is likely in actuality better than anyone might have expected sometime recently. Individuals are continually attempting to discover something new that will enhance our lives significantly. In this paper; I will discuss the facts about the advantages of usage of technology in schools; how our education system is getting benefits from use of advance technologies and what possible future aspects are in this regard.

Technology In Education

Technology has revolutionized the human experience by changing the way one learns. Technology can best be defined as a tool that supports and promotes human learning. This can be seen through the usage of calculators, tablets (example: iPad), Smart Boards, video cameras, and, of course, the computer. These are all innovations that can have a profound impact on classroom learning. Although there are some schools that have a strict policy that technology should be removed from the modern day classroom, other schools believe that integrating technology into the classroom helps prepare our students for the elaborate world they will face going forward. Throughout this essay, I will be focusing on the technology policy and how it has a positive

The education system around the world has progressed and changed in a plentiful amount of ways, and the concept of knowledge and learning has changed in modern day. For example, certain schools around the globe are moving on to implementing technology in classrooms because it provides many benefits and statistical research that states how students are improving their academic readiness because of the instant access to information, a greater engagement and interactive process in learning, and the personalization that instructors can do towards the educational experience that students receive. The benefits of technology in class can be rather debatable, for there are people who think it's a distraction, but it certainly seems to be beneficial according to the increase of passing percentages in schools.

Technology and Education Essay

Technology can help students in all areas of study. Students need to be able to use this technology since, “Currently and in the near future, it is understood that students need to acquire more autonomous skills of ‘information gathering, analysis, and display’” (Todnem, 2004, p. 1). Furthermore, the use of technology, mainly the internet, provides for variation since “Students find themselves bored and burnt-out of the lecture format to classes, so changing the curriculum and instruction to include things like online assignments and educational videogames can be one clear remedy” (Todnem, 2004, p. 1). Teachers who have implemented technology into their classrooms have noticed changes in their students. The most common of these effects being an increase in motivation. In “Effects of Technology on Classrooms and Students” another positive effect is given “technology effect stressed by many teachers was enhancement of student self esteem” (“Effects,” 2004, p. 2).

The Role Of Educational Technology And The Philosophy Of Education

Furthermore, technology in the classroom is not only necessary to engage students, but it is a basic tool for the future. Every day our lives become more deeply rooted in technology. Hardly anything is done on paper anymore. Most of people’s resume, applications, homework's, assignments, test, even letters are all done with technology. Technology has changed the status of

The Importance Of Technology In Education

In the last several years, college, administrators, faculty, and staff have observed the growing number of adult students enrolling in classes. Since these nontraditional students have recently come back, they are struggling more with technology-dominant classrooms compared to their traditional counterparts. These institutions have initiated methods to work with this problem, such as implementing beginner computer courses and encouraging them to be proactive in practicing their new found skills. Contemporary education research has observed numerous obstacles that adult student encounter returning to school. There is a learning gap that educators must close between traditional and adult students. While adult students bring valuable life experience and practical skills, they lack a background in modern programs and navigating access to technology tools. Working together hand-in-hand adult students and instructions through training in technology and time management, adult students will have a better outlook on achieving their goals and dreams.

Education is important for people’s lives especially in future work, environment, and studies. Without any education it would not be possible for a human to make a computer or to make any toys. However in the past few years, because of technology, education got more advanced, which made people get smarter easily. According to the journalist, Sarah Kessler, she said, “Technology is helping teachers to expand beyond linear, text-based learning and to engage students who learn best in other ways. Its role in schools has evolved from a contained “computer class” into a versatile learning tool that could change how we demonstrate concepts, assign projects and assess progress”. This statement is really true because I myself have been noticing and I am sure a lot of people had. Technology can help education also by new ways in

John Dewey, a leader for the progressive movement in education in the United States once said, “If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow.”

The concept known as smart school represents an expected advance in the age of information; it alters the very foundation of the teaching-learning process, teacher-student tasks and roles, and the integration of information technology and curriculum. This work intends to estimate the preparedness of transformation secondary schools of the General Directorate of Education (GDE) in Babylon-Iraq to the smart schools. The work is not regarded as an experimental work; it is instead defined as being descriptive-analytical. Data was gathered via questionnaires supplied by the Database of (GDE) in Babylon. The population being studied in the preliminary questionnaire is made up of principals, technology experts, and teachers who are currently teaching at secondary schools of Babylon province. The questionnaire's validity and reliability are gauged via content validity and Cronbach alpha formula. The results from this study can minimize the time and associated costs to utilize of modern technologies to teach; where teachers and stakeholders are expected to learn more and enjoy it compared to the traditional approach to teaching. It was also proven that public secondary schools in Babylon are quite ready to utilize this approach from the perspective of both teachers and staff. This is evident despite the presence of obvious challenges, such as the lack of the infrastructure and the ability of teachers and staff to use technological tools as well as the schools are required a strong, successful, and an inclusive plan which serves as a roadmap to standardize the different eLearning projects in the education sector to transform Iraqi schools to smart schools.

The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effectiveness of Lebanon’s Education Reform Strategy and Action Plan (LERSAP) set in 2011 as a form of the educational reform the curriculum underwent through focusing on promoting and employing the information communication technology (ICT) tools. The LERSAP was launched to equip teachers with the expertise and competencies adopted to bridge the disparity between the 1997 curriculum guidelines, general and instructional objectives on the one hand and the curriculum implementation, textbooks, and pedagogical practices on the other hand. The general objectives, introductions, instructional objectives, and activities for grades 3, 6, and 9 of the Lebanese English language curriculum were analyzed using the qualitative design implemented to serve the purposes of the study and to build on the approaches that inform about the theoretical/conceptual and empirical literature on education in Lebanon. The findings of the study indicated that the synthesis of the extant literature underscored the positive effect of the ICT tools in general and that of the WebQuest, Wiki, Google Drive, and Window Live Movie Maker models in particular on improving the pedagogical practices of the teachers and on enhancing the learners’ skills as well as increasing the motivation of the learners.

In this paper we study factors influencing faculty's decision to use educational technologies to support their pedagogical strategies. We briefly describe educational technologies commonly used by faculty to support teaching such as emails, video conferences, chat rooms, video lectures, blackboard discussions and Power Point Presentations for example. We explain in detail faculty factors (i.e., gender, age and cultural background), student factors (i.e., academic performance and gender) and contextual factors (i.e., classroom size, institutional support, course subject, and time constraints) as influential factors in using educational technologies by the faculty to support teaching. The paper findings suggest that the factors under study do influence the faculty decision to use educational technologies to support teaching, however, there are certain strategies education institutions can rely upon in order to overcome the barriers that discourage the faculty to fully integrate technology into their pedagogical strategies.

The aim of this study was to explore ELT (English Language Teaching) student teachers' perspectives on the use of web 2.0 technologies in language learning contexts. In order to do so, 139 student teachers from a state university in Turkey were given training on web technologies along with their practical usages. Three months after this training, a questionnaire adapted from previous instruments was administered to participating student teachers. Moreover, the follow up interviews were carried out with only 20 student teachers in five groups, the aim of which was to take a deeper insight about the items in the questionnaire. Both the questionnaire and the interview results revealed that student teachers seemed to have positive feelings about the use of web technologies despite some challenges such as lack of technological devices encountered.

ABSTRACT ICT projects and their relevance in education are spreading rapidly in schools not just in wealthy countries, but increasingly in developing ones as well. However, although schools have had computers for almost two decades and some with ICT projects underway, ways to use and implement them effectively have evolved slowly and patchily. Technological revolution in schools has been beset by theoretical inadequacies that have kept educational technology at the margins of the established educational system. Research findings across the country have revealed that there are ICT facilities in the secondary schools such as computers, computer laboratories, internet connections, alongside the traditional methods of telecommunication. Further research has revealed that projects involving ICT use and integration in the Kenyan secondary schools have both internal and external challenging factors leading to weak implementation of these ICT projects. The study was done in secondary schools in Kwale County, Kenya. The purpose of the study was to establish the factors influencing the implementation of Information and Communication Technology projects in public secondary Schools in Kwale County. The objectives of the study were to establish how infrastructural facilities influence the implementation of ICT projects in public secondary schools in Kwale County, Kenya, to examine the role of stakeholders in ICT projects implementation in public secondary schools in Kwale County, Kenya, to determine how financial resource influence the implementation of ICT projects implementation in public secondary schools in Kwale County, Kenya, to establish the school administrative practices that supports the implementation of ICT projects implementation in public secondary schools in Kwale County, Kenya. Non-experimental descriptive survey design was used to establish the factors that influence the implementation of ICT projects in secondary schools Kwale County. There are 60 secondary schools that made up the target population. A sample of twenty schools which equated to 48% of the total population was used in the study. Stratified random was used to allow full participation of the schools. There are 650 teachers in secondary schools that made up the target population. Four teachers were randomly sampled in each sample school to fill the questionnaire, also six students. Eight principals were interviewed to represent each category of schools. Questionnaires, observation schedule and interview enabled the researcher collect data. Piloting was done in two schools to test the reliability and validity of the research instruments. The data collected was analyzed using statistical package for social sciences (SPSS). Descriptive statistics was used to present the results of the study and the general trends; this involved tabulating and describing data.


Keywords Technology integration into educational settings is a multi-dimensional and complex process affected by many factors. Previous modeling studies focused on mostly factors germane to technological infrastructure and teacher competencies. Only a few studies investigated some school-level factors and suggested further research for others especially those related to socio-cultural characteristics of schools. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to propose and test a structural model explaining teachers' technology integration through school culture, technology leadership and support services. The model was tested using structural equation modeling on a convenience sample of high school teachers (n=396). The results demonstrate that school culture indirectly influences technology integration through the mediation of technology leadership and support services. Also, support services have direct and largest total effect on technology integration. Positive school climate can result in effective leadership behaviors and adequate support and encouragement for the increased use of technology. Implications were discussed within the context of teachers' technology integration into learning and teaching in the schools.
