    This is a popular opinion nowadays as many schools around the world try to use the newest technology in their education systems. While many agree to this decision, some disagree thinking that technology can be harmful to their children. Examples of harmful effects of technology can be health issues, age issued ads, and the distraction from the classes. What do you think? Should we use iPads, Phones in our classes? Does your child use it in school?

    I think technology makes it easy to learn. And you have access to more things. Lot of things can be improved in education with technology so one should definitely use it.

    Yeah, infact, most institutions of higher learning are embracing this.

    Technology solved alot of things so am sure the use of technology can be monitored. It does help to make the kids learn better than before so I'd prefer the use of technology.

    Using technology in learning is a very useful idea. We live in a modern world now. Where all thing, mostly all things are run or built by technology. So for me, it's okay as long as there are limitations and guidelines to avoid the harmful effects.

    Definitely technology comes in handy for school children. In my case I teach world histroy to grade 8 kids and we use data in locating/drawing the maps of the different countries that we are studying. Instead of bring the big maps, the can just access these maps, of various types and colors, from their smartphones. Technology indeed help even in the field of education.

    JUst this morning in one of my history classes I asked the students to use their data to find some places in ancient Egypt like Thebes and Memphis. Fortunately many were able to find it without even reading a texbook and our lesson discussion went on smoothly covering so many topics within an hour. In this way I think technology really helps especially in education.
