We are liv­ing in the mod­ern days be­cause tech­nol­ogy is ev­ery­where. It is a part of our ev­ery­day lives. School chil­dren eas­ily get bored with dif­fer­ent stuff es­pe­cially ac­tiv­i­ties done in­side the class­room. Teach­ers must think of sev­eral ways to arouse the in­ter­est of our learn­ers to pro­mote learn­ing. Since our school chil­dren nowa­days are in­ter­ested in the use of tech­nol­ogy, teach­ers must in­cor­po­rate ICT with their lessons. We all know that our learn­ers are ex­cited to go to school if they see some­thing new ev­ery day. We should take ad­van­tage of the mod­ern­iza­tion. Let us not think that tech­nol­ogy is a hin­drance in the teach­ing and learn­ing process but a help­ful tool in achiev­ing our goals. Learn­ers are en­joy­ing while they are learn­ing . The use of tech­nol­ogy in in­struc­tion pro­vides learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and gives pupils a chance to en­gage in learn­ing. We are hit­ting two birds in one stone here. Also, we can use tech­nol­ogy in giv­ing re­in­force­ments to pupils at home.

As teach­ers, we should learn to dance to the tune of our school chil­dren without sac­ri­fic­ing the stan­dards of the teach­ing and learn­ing process. We should find ways to dance with them and tak­ing ad­van­tage of the tech­nol­ogy is one of the so­lu­tions.
