Is Technology the Right Mode of Education
‘Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic’ is a famous quote by Arthur C. Clarke, a British science fiction author, inventor, thinker and futurist. Technology has overtaken the world with a sweep and is making everyone not just fascinate but slaves to it as well. Modernization is good as long as it doesn’t make an individual an addict. In today’s date education is itself having too many changes and the mode of teaching i.e. through touch screen boards and projectors is gaining more weight age. Schools are a place where children should learn the basic important facts and values of a good life, rather than learning how to use technology. More than 90% of the world now does its work on computers but that doesn’t justify the point of making children study through computers. A teacher’s need cannot be erased with a technological device.
Teachers are the ones who make the future generations of any country better citizens who after their schooling are mature enough to understand what is important and the need of the hour. Investment in technology at this level is not required because children need a mentor consistently at different points of time. Many schools have adopted this system of education which will harm rather than making them proficient in their studies. Besides investing in technology, there are various other factors which need to be considered before plunging ahead. Every country’s mode of education is different; America has technology in abundance right from kinder garden to high school. India is one such country where education through technology cannot really flourish.
Education is a process of teaching and imparting skills and knowledge to children on a teacher-student basis. Firms who make such technologies tell about bringing dynamism in education, but it isn’t that easy. As it has already been mentioned, every country system of functioning and thinking is different, similarly, education in every country is different and none can leave the practice which has been made hundreds of decades ago. Even parents and others believe that no one can replace teachers in a society. Technology is a human’s creation and removing teachers by placing technology will be like a class without a teacher. More than 45% of the world favors teaching through technology, but that doesn’t solve the issue of credibility and accountability. Technologies cannot stop students from creating mischief and a ruckus in class.
It is a common believed that the sacredness of the relationship between education, teacher and a child can never be severed but modernity is trying to do the same by bringing in lots of distractions and making it problematic for others. Colleges can be considered an ideal place to have technological dashboards, projectors and laptops for education but schools can never be turned into a diversion. With the presence of technology all around any child will tend to get distracted at one time or the other. We need good teachers who can control students and make them realize the importance of moral values and education which technology can’t impart. Providing logical explanations and understanding children is not everyone’s cup of tea, the same case is with technology. Therefore, technology must be refrained from changing the pattern of school education.
