7 Ways in Which Technology-Supported Science Impacts the Process of Students’ Development.

Modern technology has infiltrated our lives in an uncountable number of ways. We use it every day when we turn off an electronic alarm or put a laptop into the sleep mode. At the same time, we are becoming increasingly dependent on it. If you think you are not, try living a week without using your smartphone. Seems challenging, doesn’t it?

The technological revolution and the emergence of the Internet have had a dramatic effect on education. According to Petersons.com, a new era was ushered in 1960s when the first online education program was launched at the University of Illinois.

Today, one can totally agree that the technology boom has positively affected the education industry. Here, you will find the top-7 benefits of technology in education.

e Internet has provided people with a possibility to not only learn but also teach others without having to pay a penny.

 #1 Possibilities for self-education

Students can get information from various sources, including YouTube, Vimeo, and search engines like Google and Yahoo. For example, it takes only a matter of seconds to find information on preparing yourself for a foreign language exam or finding out the main steps to making concrete. The Internet has provided people with a possibility to not only learn but also teach others without having to pay a penny.

 #2 Preparation for exams

Preparing for tough international exams can be a tall order for the majority of students. For example, it takes about two or three months to prepare yourself for TOEFL or GMAT. Students also require specialized books with exam materials and explanations.

Nowadays, it has become much easier to prepare for the said exams using only your PC. There are also a lot of test simulators and online courses that can help students refine and upgrade their skills.

 #3 Staying up-to-date

Time flies so fast that sometimes you have no time to buy a newspaper or watch TV in order to know what is happening in the world. We give up before even trying to distill valuable data from an infinite flow of information. But modern technology can help you optimize this process.

Smartphone applications have dramatically simplified the process of information filtering. For example, you can use the Flipboard App to filter out the news feed. No more tabloids — enjoy only qualitative information every day!

#4 Homework help

One more positive impact of technology on education is specialized companies that help students complete their home assignments. They can write an essay or solve a math equation for you. You can also ask such companies to explain you some difficult topics you experience obstacles with.

Thus, if you lack the time or have no clue about how to complete a home task, you can always rely on said agencies (for example, bestcustomwriting.com/). Save your time and money!

Technology has made the process of learning easier and it would further simplify the process in the coming years.

#5 Distance learning

Online education has become one of the most powerful innovations in the recent century. It has provided students with an opportunity to study in leading worldwide universities. And the best thing is that students do not have to pay any transportation, visa, and accommodation costs. According to Statista.com, the online education market is expected to grow from 165 to 243 million USD in the next 4 years.

The technological boom has improved lifelong learning accessibility, too. Nowadays, you can pick up useful skills through the Internet. Simply put, modern technology helps people become smarter.

 #6 Useful tools

Technological development has engendered new working environments that help students to create, edit, write, and present their knowledge. All of us are familiar with such programs — MS Word, Excel, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Eclipse, etc.

The usability of the said programs is recognized by a number of leading universities worldwide. Some colleges provide courses geared toward acquiring skills connected to the latter programs. For example, students frequently use PowerPoint to prepare a presentation of their main ideas and defend their Master’s thesis.

 #7 Interactive lectures

One of the benefits of technology in the classroom is interactive classes where students can simulate a parliament. They are divided into special committees and fulfill the same responsibilities as politicians. They can propose, reject, and amend laws with the use of special computers installed in such classrooms.

Also, students can participate in parliamentary debates organized by the university campus. An interactive board is a useful tool that helps referees maintain regalement enforcement and distinct evaluation of speakers.

I was Depressed After Failing in 3 Subjects. Here’s how I Finally Overcame Code-o-Phobia and Topped My Exams

Ankush Sharma shares how a training at Internshala was beneficial for him

About the Author: Ankush Sharma is pursuing B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Petroleum and Energy Studies, Dehradun. He joined Internshala Trainings for learning Android and shares how this decision transformed his life.

Demolition, desperation, and depression. These three words became synonymous with my life after the first year of college. Being a computer science student with absolutely no coding background meant that I needed to put in double the efforts. However, when it came to coding, I failed thrice in exams and got backlogs in subjects like Programming, Data Structures, and Advanced Programming. I had virtually given up on coding and wanted to quit the stream for some other option. Amidst such depression, I stumbled upon Android. It fascinated me, but I knew I could not do anything as my programming basics were not clear. When all seemed lost, I came to know about Internshala Trainings through a friend. At first, I didn’t bother about any training, but there was something eerily soothing about the UI of the website which compelled me to try it once. I had some money saved and invested it in the Android winter training.

” I failed thrice in exams and got backlogs in subjects like Programming, Data Structures, and Advanced Programming,” says Ankush Sharma.

The training was divided into 4 modules, each having a test of its own. Projects like making an Android calculator app were also included for a rigorous training regime. I started off quite slow, learning and practicing the basics of Java first and later moving to Android. I was also attending summer classes at the college, studying to clear my backlogs. I had always thought that I could do any free course online or watch videos on YouTube – after all, everywhere on the internet, the content would be same. Boy, could I BE any more wrong! Internshala had a tailored content for learning. It started with focusing on all the basics and then gradually escalated, covering everything that any beginner needed. It answered many questions and doubts that I had for a long time. Slowly but steadily, the training helped me improve my coding and also helped in understanding the concepts being taught in the summer classes.

Exams, internshala

The flexibility offered by an online training was another advantage. I could study for as long as I wanted according to my own schedule which helped me in managing the college work. Moreover, the free Placement Preparation Training gave many handy interview tips and also taught me the intricacies of writing impressive cover letters. The provided support was also great. Whenever I faced any problems, I used to shoot messages or emails to them and the response was always quick. I was glad that this was not another money-hogging website which doesn’t care about you once the fee is paid. The support team genuinely cared and helped me at every step.

In short, this training changed my life. The same coding which was leading me into dark became my lightsaber (laser sword)! (Yeah, okay. Even Jedi knows I’m a geek!). I topped all my backlog exams of coding and within 2 months of completing the training, I developed two apps which are available on Play Store. After successfully developing the first app, my interest in coding increased significantly.

I started devoting a lot of hours on this regularly and topped the subsequent exams in the next semester! I started getting noticed for my coding skills and even got offers to work with a couple of startups. Now, I have also done Internshala’s IoT training and added yet another skill in my arsenal.

Thank you, Internshala, for being my guiding light. I owe my success to the boost that you gave.
