Using Technology for Education is a good idea because it has no limitation when you want to learn and search about something all the information you need is already in the gadgets we have such as computer, tablets, phones and etc. The students prefer to use technology as part of education because they can learn and find a lot of things easily and can save their time instead of going on the libraries. Libraries can consume your whole time on searching and reading books hence the information you’ll get is just limited unlike searching on the internet. Computers have replaced chalkboards as the go-to tool in classrooms today. Millennial and other professionals are now in high number of using of technology. Technology is a massive helpful for our lives and education. Nelson Laird and Kuh (2005) report that through the evaluation of student perceptions of technology use, “there appears to be a strong positive relationship between using technology for educational purposes and involvement in effective educational practices such as active and collaborative learning and student-faculty interaction.”.
The students with higher levels of education used the internet more frequently; only 61% of individuals without a high-school diploma used the internet while 94% of individuals with some college and 97% with a college degree or higher were internet users (Pew Research Center, 2012). Millennial are early adopters. College students utilized technology more frequently than other age and adapt their usage more rapidly, with one-fifth of college students beginning to use computers before when they’re in 8 years old. According to a research study by Common Sense Media published in October 2011, “computer use is pervasive among very young children, with half (53%) of all 2 to 4 year olds having ever used a computer, and nine out of 10 (90%) 5 to 8 year olds having done so.” (Jones, 2002; McHaney, 2011 and Newnam, 2012). Most relevant to the current study, this work reports benefit gains of “greater levels of student engagement, opportunities to create new kinds of learning environments and activities, and the ability to extend learning opportunities outside of the classroom” (Morrone et al., 2012 ). The students prefer to use technology because they can learn and find lot of things what they needed than going to libraries.
