Taking Ctrl: The Use of Technology in Education

Taking Ctrl: The Use of Technology in Education

Technology, when used correctly can advance us not only in our general lives, but also in work and education. The key is moderation. 

The use of technology in everything we do is at its most pinnacle and is ever growing. We use technology in all aspects of life from dropping our children to school to reading books! Some see this as a good thing, some as bad. 

Our children spend countless hours, staring at screens, playing on mobile phones, iPads and computers. Whilst this can have a negative impact on them not only socially, but also physically and mentally, it is not the technology itself that is bad. 
 
Moderation should be applied to almost every, single, thing we do in our lives. A healthy balance of most things can be good for our lives and our long-term health. However, too much of a good thing is never good and too much of a bad thing is certainly even worse. 
 
It also matters about the way in which we use technology. For example, sitting and staring at a computer screen all day can have an impact on eyesight and posture, causing back problems but at the same time, when you take precautions such as regular breaks walking around, doing stretches etc. computers can allow you to do an online, distance learning course giving you a degree at the end of it.

Online educational games encourage learning using technology and usually encompass skills such as reading, vocabulary, strategy skills, Maths, Science and English skills. They allow children to play a game and enjoy learning. 
 
When it comes to using technology, it is important to have a healthy balance. Next time you spend family time together, why not incorporate some technology into it, this could be through watching an educational movie or playing a game online. Technology does not have to be a negative thing if it’s used in the correct ways.
