It’s an interesting thing to ponder – technology is such a huge part of life today that we’ve almost ceased to consider how much it has affected education.
But it has – and in many different ways.
The introduction of computers and other technology into our places of education has not only allowed teachers more time to focus on actually teaching, but also allowed students access to more information, faster than ever before. By embracing technology in the classroom, this prep school in Surrey is actively preparing children for a successful life in the world of work.
Children love technology
They naturally veer towards screens and to the learning opportunities which they present. Consider how geography used to be taught – lots of talking and reading. Which is fine of course, but thanks to technology, children can now experience interactive videos of the places and landscapes which they’re learning about.
They can see the land they’re learning about and this makes things much more enjoyable for them.
Technology prepares students for the future
It’s vital that children learn how to use technology in all of it’s various forms. Careers which once may not have needed any computer experience, now include that in required qualifications.
Technology opens doors
With some knowledge of coding and web design, even teenagers can set up and run their own businesses. Today’s teens are more entrepreneurial than perhaps any previous generation thanks to the opportunities presented by technology.
Whether your child dives deeply into technology or just learns as much as they need, there’s no question that learning is much easier and more enjoyable thanks to the strides we’ve made in recent years.
