It’s pretty clear that education has changed leaps and bonds due to the computer age. How are the schools around the country affected by this change? Are schools up to speed with the ever changing times?
When it comes to the internet generation, schools are indeed lagging behind. It is obvious that the school systems are going to have to change to keep up with the technology and the way students are learning these days. Students are no longer learning the way they did 15-20 years ago by going to libraries and doing things manually like writing. This method worked over hundred years ago, but now with our fast pace world education must be upgrade like computer systems! Students are living in the computer age where it’s all about data entry and online research.
Thus, teachers are in need of getting an upgrade as well. Many instructors are in the dark about teaching methods when it comes to technical education. This means that many schools are going to have to take a part in coming up with ways to bring the net-generation style of teaching into the classrooms. Most schools have already taken this approach; such as requiring students to have laptops, but it’s still a long way from where schools ought to be. Schools are really no different then businesses, as upgrades come to past, they must be implemented to stay competitive. This in turn brings up how schools that do keep up with the net-generation, the students are more competitive in work studies and in life overall. They score better on test, exams, and are most likely to get into top schools in the country.
School administrations around the country are learning themselves that it is no longer about lecturing the students to learn, but about studying how kids are learning these days and adapting to it.
