IMPORTANCE OF TECHNOLOGICAL EDUCATION IN TODAY’S LIFE AS FELT BY ANTONY GORDON
When you look around you, you will not see a thing which is done entirely manually and there is not a bit of technology used in it. Technology is meant for mankind and humans have been striving since the early stages of life to make it more and more useful and beneficial. Right from the simple tool like a hammer or an axe used in the primitive ages to the more advanced and latest computers of today, technology has always played a major role in the daily life of people. It has made decision taking easy and you know how to deal with a situation with the help of technology.
It seems though that the newer generation is better than the older ones but it is not entirely true, as is felt by Antony Gordon, who suggests that technology is indispensible in today’s life. The argument can be raised if it is said that with the available technological methods and advancement with regards to the time, all the generations are equally good and effective. It may be so that you find it strange that your grandfather cannot operate specific software of now, but it is also true that you do not know the software in which he was an expert in his times.
The reason for this is the development and spread of IT education. You will find a number of colleges and universities offering IT education now due to the widespread use of it and therefore, you are properly trained and kept updated with the latest developments in the filed which was not available before. Therefore, IT education plays an important role in your expertise. You now not only know how to use it for your beneficial purpose but also know how precisely you can use different tools and techniques to find solutions to any problem fast.
IT education is delivered to students to enable them to learn more and make the most use of it through various devices, technologies and teaching modules. It provides proper training to them for the use of it and also keeps on their interest in the subject ever growing. You will seldom find a blackboard, chalk and duster in such classrooms which have been replaced by smart boards and tablets where teaching is done in proper cloud computing environment. It is simple, affordable and above all creates the maximum impact on the student’s mind which can be retained for a longer time.
Through IT education students can not only learn easily but also get ample time for conducting independent research. This research increases the curiosity and interest of the students and creates an urge to know more and as a result the level of education goes up and the student comes out with greater knowledge. Motivation for teachers and staff along with the students increases, proper lesson preparation schedules can be made, better coordination between teachers and students are established, efficiency of staff also increases with better preparation of attendance and reports with the use of technology in the field of education.
