ACCESSING INFORMATION: previously, students had to venture to libraries and sort through books to search for information. Now, through technology, they can gather all needed knowledge instantly; with the internet, students can accumulate more information quickly and efficiently while teachers can incorporate more into their lesson plans.
EDITING OF WRITTEN WORKS: In the past when students had to use type-writers or hand write their papers, they would have to re-copy their whole essay if they made a mistake. Now, writers can digitally modify their papers quickly (proofreading, adding sections, etc.) while reducing their frustration by decreasing the amount of time spent with this task.
PROVING SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Instead of teachers relying on textbooks for the majority of there lesson plans, they can use technology to enhance learning through movies and audio recordings, articles, and/or slide show presentations. Considering the internet allows for easier attainment of supplementary information, teachers can provide much more materials to their students other than whats in their midst.
COMMUNICATING: technology tools allows students to communicate with each other through email, chat rooms, discussion boards, etc., to share information efficiently. This allows for an extensive community of learners all working towards a specific goal.
MOTIVATING STUDENTS: Many students find school tedious and technology gains the attention of youth leading to a higher degree of motivation. When students daily activities are so repetitive, technology recaptures their interest and pulls them back into learning in a more interesting manner.
