Role Of Technology In Education.




The future of India will be fashioned in the classroom. While India has made great strides in improving the education system but much still remains to be done. If you see the current scenario then you will find that there is a flood of advanced technology all over the globe but our education system is not benefiting due to the lack of information and knowledge of teachers, students and the administration. The students have their own restrictions, teachers have there own and the administration is also admitting the fact that the education system is really in a poor shape today.
The goal of this paper is to outline how information technology can help to create an education system that is based on the principles of helping teachers, students and administration to be effective in what they do, improving the quality and relevance of teaching learning process.
I. INTRODUCTION
We will first compare two technological advancement, which is vital for implementing information technology. Way back in 1995 the computers looked very old fashioned. These big giant were merely used for doing processing work and nothing more. But in the present scenario the computers are equipped with latest technology with very high processing speed. There has been a massive improvement in terms of technology if you examine and compare the computers of 1995 with the present computers.
The same holds good for the mobile phone. Way back in 1995 mobiles were expensive, bulky, high running cost, and with very few features. Now if you see the present day mobile they are as good as small computers. Again a dramatic and drastic change of technology but for the betterment. Well so far so good. Now let us see how schools use to operate during the 90’s. Teachers use to explain a topic via black boards. Students on the other hand could hardly find any extra reference or material on that very topic easily. Teachers and text books were considered to be the source of knowledge. Even the teachers used to stick to the contents of text books which was infrequently updated and contains many errors. Many other problems also need to be addressed. We will discuss them in the coming slides. Now if we see the present scenario of school then we are sorry to say that not much has changed since the 90ies. We still are using black board; we are still using the contents of text books which are too old to needs updating. Teachers are referring to the same text books are the only source of information and knowledge available to most of the students as well as teachers. So we see that almost nothing has changed ever since.
So when a computer technology can change and when a mobile technology can change why can not the educational technology? From the convincing point of view let us share some benefits of using information technology in education:

a) It induces scientific, economic, technological, information and multicultural literacy and global awareness.
b) It promotes inventive thinking.
c) It develops effective communication which leads to teaming, collaboration and interpersonal skills. Moreover, it induces personal, social and civic responsibility.
d) It leads to high productivity which given the ability to plan and manage results. It also gives you a sense of using real-world tools with effective, relevant, and high quality results. Now suppose a decision is taken to use technology in the field of education shifting the focus from traditional teaching to educational technology then a question still needs to be answered? How and where do we fit in? For this to answer, we 1need to explore the various ways of clubbing and implementing information technology in education.

a) To examine the education scenario in the present context.
b) To explore various possibilities of implementing technology in education for the betterment of the students, teachers and in turn the society.
c) There do not appear to be any established principle on the timely revision of textbooks. These above problems were identified when they have no idea of technology and its use in the field of education.
