No matter what level of education you are involved in, you will find that technology can be quite a blessing. Whether you are the educator, or the student, you will find that there are many benefits to getting more technology into the classroom. This is because you will be able to provide a much broader spectrum of tools that will work in educating as well as give the students another platform from which to learn. Many students today have been doing things on the computer for a good part of their life already, so there is no reason not to use them in school to allow them to be able to learn.
The computer in essence is just another tool for teaching. Consider how chalkboards have been replaced by interactive smart boards and text books are replaced by online tutorials. In many cases homework can even be turned in online and not only allows the students to be able to enjoy doing it, but it also cuts down on the need for paper. This makes the schools more efficient and ecologically friendly. So there are many benefits to the use of technology and computers in school.
The only drawback is the lack of interaction between student and teacher. Think about the fact the teacher can now simply tell the students to look it up online or even post lectures and notes for the students right online. There will be no need to actually attend class at some point. The only problem is that there may not be a lot of actual learning going on in this case as many times the student will take advantage of the situation and not really do as they should for the class. That makes it up to the teacher to set requirements and incorporate multiple teaching methods into the class as opposed to going to straight web based learning.
