Is Technology Good for Learning?

I believe that technology is actually fantastic for learning. I believe this because it can enhance what students are learning, making it more memorable and more interesting. If a teacher is using technology in the right context, students should be learning more from their lessons than they would have without it. Students also need to be taught how to learn from technology and how to use it since that’s the type information needed for upcoming jobs.

Some people might say technology is making school too easy. I think that, again, if a teacher is using it in the right way, it should enhance learning, not make it easier. Yes, a student can look up something much quicker and easier than before, but that’s the kind of world we live in now, which we created. A students needs to know more about how to look something up on a computer rather than in the dictionary because that is the type of thing they will be immersed into when they graduate from school. If a teacher is using technology in the right way, it will always be good for learning.
