Technology has impacted almost every aspect of life today

Technology has impacted almost every aspect of life today, including education. In some ways, education seems the same as it has been in past years. For example, imagine the scene of a classroom. While the teacher stands in a podium and gives the lecture, the students sit at desks and listen. Many of the students have their textbooks out and appear to be following along. Some of the students are whispering and snickering to their friends. Students in classrooms today might be found reading books on their phones, or taking notes on a laptop. Someone who views themselves as a pessimist might say that technology has no impact on education.

However, technology has greatly changed education. In the past, teachers relied on meeting students face-to-face to interact with them. It was during these meetings when the teacher would comment on the students work or the student would ask for help.
