A Pro of technology in education:
Technology gives us access to the whole internet so this encourages students to investigate subjects they are interested in. So if a student wants to learn about a subject they have the possibility to learn it spontaneously with youtube for example. If we compare this to older generations, the information was much harder to access. Therefore, technology adds a positive effect on the learning of students.
A Con of technology in education:
Even though technology helps the spontaneous learning of students, it can also be very distracting. If a student is very easily distracted, technology may not be the best way to learn for them because as I previously said, technology gives access to the whole internet. While researching a subject students can easily fall into something that entertains them.
My opinion about technology in education:
Based on the pros and cons that I cited, I think that technology is very beneficial for the learning of students but it has to be monitored by someone with authority because the risk of distraction is just too great without supervision.
