ED­U­CA­TION IN THE NEW MIL­LEN­NIUM

Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! -

MA. LUZ C. FER­NAN­DEZ

All of this takes tech­nol­ogy, along with will­ing ed­u­ca­tors, school dis­tricts, cur­ricu­lum di­rec­tors, and even par­ents, ready to em­brace it and adopt it. Adopt­ing re­quires change. Some change is man­dated. More evo­lu­tion in tech­nol­ogy more chances of learn­ers to be­come glob­ally com­pet­i­tive.

Tech­nol­ogy has the power to free us from those lim­i­ta­tions, to make ed­u­ca­tion far more por­ta­ble, flex­i­ble, and per­sonal; to foster ini­tia­tive and in­di­vid­ual re­spon­si­bil­ity; to re­store the trea­sure-hunt ex­cite­ment to the process of learn­ing.

Tech­nol­ogy re­ally have an im­pact on ed­u­ca­tion in the fu­ture. It is im­pos­si­ble to imag­ine ed­u­ca­tion years from now with­out tech­nol­ogy. Tech­nol­ogy in ed­u­ca­tion al­low learn­ers to take notes and print them. Ed­u­ca­tion has cer­tainly taken cen­ter stage as a modern is­sue.

Tech­nol­ogy is rapidly evolv­ing to help teach­ers ed­u­cate in a di­verse class­room of learn­ing dif­fer­ences, tran­scend­ing learn­ing dis­abil­ity and ed­u­ca­tional de­vice at once (Google, Mi­crosoft Of­fice, mo­bile, tablet, e.g.).

As­sess­ment is com­ing fur­ther to the fore, as teach­ers want to assess chil­dren in­di­vid­u­ally, in ad­di­tion to eval­u­at­ing class­room per­for­mance gen­er­ally.The tech-based ed­u­ca­tional model is not a dis­tant pos­si­bil­ity any longer, and what was once sci­ence fic­tion is be­com­ing daily re­al­ity.
