Education is no more based on the rote method of learning. The education space has slowly but surely seen a change. The future of education is all about personalizing learning, allowing children to learn at their own pace and learning style.
Personalized learning can be done without the use of technology too; however, the use of technology amplifies and makes the learning process faster.Even though technology has been perceived to be a hindrance to a child’s learning we need to understand there is no escaping it. Hence we should just accept this and strike a balance on how we use it.
We know that technology is addictive, however, when this very fact is used to our advantage and we make sure the child is using technology to learn new things to enhance his knowledge it can become a boon.
Millennials have been born with some device in and around them. To them, technology is the most natural thing. They just understand how to use their tools. It is we who think that technology is addictive and is consuming them. Millennials do not know life without their devices, so the best approach is to let them use it to their benefit rather than resist it.
