Technology and Its Impact on Teaching

Digitalization of different spheres and professions of the modern world brings significant changes to everyday activities. One of the fields in which technology is emerging the most rapidly during the last decades in education. Therefore, technological tools and digital methods have become more widespread in educational spheres. Our institution has incorporated technology into teaching. All new technology devices are available to students and teachers in the classroom. Due to the impact that technology has on the opportunities for learners and teachers, the use of the specified tools should be seen as absolutely necessary in the academic setting.

There are several reasons why it is worthwhile to use technology in teaching. Currently, the classroom has diverse students with different needs and learning styles. Using technology in education will help us to meet that. While technology should not be seen as the ultimate solution to the issues associated with the learning process, it does provide vast options for a teacher to build a learner-centered approach. For instance, with the application of interactive IT tools, an educator can offer learners more agency in their academic progress, thus allowing them to build self-directed learning skills (Mirzajani, Mahmud, Ayub, & Wong, 2016). As a result, the process of skills acquisition can be tailored to suit the needs of any learner.

In addition, the overall efficacy of learning can be enhanced due to a rise in the quality of teaching. They identified two outcomes that are inseparable from each other from a causative perspective and, thus, they need to be explored in tandem. Due to the integration of innovative IT and ICT tools into the learning setting, teachers are provided with more significant opportunities for establishing a rapport with every learner individually. Moreover, options for including new teaching techniques and offering the required material to learners in new and engaging ways are provided. As a result, the amount of information and the range of perspectives from which students can perceive and learn it will be expanded. In teaching, technology provides the means for arranging and representing critical data, as well as creating unique learning experiences during which students will apply the newly acquired knowledge. At the same time, with the inclusion of technology into the educational process, students become invested in learning, developing a substantial amount of agency with the involvement of interactive IT and ICT tools (Ghareb & Mohammed, 2017). Consequently, their performance increases as they set goals for themselves and coordinate their learning process along with educators.

Finally, It and ICT tools introduce numerous options for increasing the quality of student-teacher communication and collaboration between educators. Both aspects of change are critical to the efficacy of the learning process since receiving feedback informs teachers’ strategies and students’ learning directions, whereas communication between educators leads to a greater extent of interdisciplinary cooperation. The latter is crucial for creating improved teaching methods and building a coherent system of information management. As a result, learners can discover continuity in a range of disciplines and the connection between them, thus developing a solid plan of knowledge (Garganté, Naranjo, & Tamarit, 2015). Thus, the quality of communication enhanced by technology leads to improvements in education. Given the described advantage, it would be logical to assume that technology offers vast opportunities for enhanced integration of learning processes. With the inclusion of additional perspectives into learning, students can gain new views on the subjects that they study.

This enhancement of the teaching offered by this change will have a positive outcome for you and the institution. It will benefit both educational organizations and students. The incorporation of technological advantages into the educational process opens a plethora of chances for enriching students’ experiences. Providing them with opportunities to acquire new skills and train them effectively, technological advances will empower students and contribute to their progress. Thus, the platform doe self-directed learning and further academic success will be created. Meanwhile, teachers will be able to incorporate a vast array of tools for increasing the quality of lessons and building rapport with learners to define their different teaching strategy based on feedback from learners.
