Todays students are not the same as previous generations. Technology dominates this age like nothing before. Communication, social interaction, entertainment, business, there is very little, if anything, that has not been affected by technology. This includes education and how students learn. Research is not done online. Notes are taken on a computer. Instant messaging has replaced face to face conversation. Students do not learn or interact like we use to. Changes must be made to accommodate this advancement in technology. Student must be presented challenges in a way which they will grow and understand. Technology must take a more important role in education. That being said I feel that is a lot of value to other methods of learning. Face to Face social interaction helps students learn to deal with difficult situations. They cannot just turn the problem off or reboot the systems. Certain skills also seem to be diminishing with the advance of technology. Students are not able to do basic math without a calculator. Although I feel the advancement of technology has been a great benefit to society I also feel is has hinder individual development as people.
