The invasion of technologies in the 21st century has brought massive changes and multitude of opportunities to get our lives even better. We can no longer deny the significance of technology in our lives – let’s be honest that the huge number of people can’t survive a day without holding a phone. This phenomenon has comprehensively affected our lives in a positive way. In fact, technologies also invaded classrooms and they continue helping teachers to reach student in a comfortable for them manner.

Today, instead of the teacher being the sole source of knowledge, teacher works with technologies to provide quality education, strong retention rate and a positive class interaction. How does technology help student learn more? Well, here are some amazing things about technology in relation to student’s performance.

  1. Independent Learning

Through technologies, students can learn more on their own. At school, teacher is the fountain of knowledge, but there is so much information outside of class that students couldn’t so easily access before the Internet. There are many things that students can learn without the supervision of teacher. They can now learn at their own pace and in their own fulfilling way.

In class, a teacher explains a topic, sometimes not quite thoroughly. The majority of students usually don’t ask questions if they don’t understand something in fear of being laughed at. And as a result, there is a low academic performance. But because of the technologies, students get to learn more by profound searching and reading. With this, students have the opportunity to be better in their studies.

  1. Retention Rate

Academic resources are available anywhere nowadays and not limited to our traditional way of learning. Due to the emergence of technological advancement, students’ retention rate is becoming more adhered to the long-term memory. Students are using a wide range of tools and gadgets such as notepad, easily accessed materials, tablets which are all useful for academic endeavor.

  1. Opportunity to Learn Things Online

Most learners now are fully dependent on the online resources. Before, if you wanted to learn how to play a guitar, how to dance, how to cook or even how to write an essay, you had to attend a class which few people are fond of doing. However, now there are online classes, workshops and services. For example, you say I want to learn to make a cheesecake. You type it to your browser and you either find recipes and try to do it on your own, or follow video lessons, or even get consultations from professional cooks. Or you say I want someone to write my essay for me cheap. Just Google it and you’ll see so many useful services to answer your request. Because of technology, you can simply ask someone to help you with your academic requirements. This opportunity to learn things online is limitless and powerful – you can use its usefulness for your advantage.

  1. Engaging Classroom Management

If the class is engaging well and is full of interaction, students have the tendency to participate and the knowledge they gain is more powerful in comparison to boring classes where teachers speak and speak. In today’s generation, teachers are working well with the technologies. They are incorporating various teaching aids, games and fun activities to maintain students’ focus, attention and learning abilities. Imagine, if you are in the class with helpful technologies, no student will be left behind. Everyone will be savvy enough to learn in a conducive environment.

  1. Educational Tools help students

Paper and pen, listening to teachers and going to the library are usually the scenes we get to experience in school. Notwithstanding, due to the existence of various hardware and software tools such as laptop, computer, educational apps, projectors, games and activities, the classes became a venue for holistic development of students. The tools mentioned are thoroughly constructive to help students to learn more – not just the subject matter but the lesson in all aspects.

Those are just simple ways how technologies affect students’ performance in class. Technology is a blessing and how to use it to make our lives more convenient is in our hands.
