24. How can modern technology be used to aid learning in schools?

Technology as boon (aid) to students

Information is made more accessible

Uses of websites such as Twitter to aid learning

Creation of messenger and online bots to help students answer questions should the teacher not be available.

The internet has revolutionized learning such that learning is not purely confined to the classroom

Uses of the digital books to replace the conventional textbooks

Technology as bane to students (how technology has not aided learning in school)

Students' learning will depend on the stability of digital technology. Current technology is still relatively unstable with unpredictable glitches and system crashes for no apparent reasons. Furthermore, computers are regularly infected with viruses nowadays.

The emergence of social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter have led to decreased productivity of students.

The validity of the information and facts offered on the internet could result in students learning the incorrect information and facts on a subject.

Many still prefer the tangibility of a textbook and the physical interaction with the text -- bookmarks, highlights, page-tearing and sticky notes. Thus e-readers may not have aided learning in school.

Disclaimer: I'm not sure about the counter-argument to this question.
