There is one EXTRA heading you wil NOT need. Tools, such as computers, mobile devices and the internet, are now integrated into the educational system. While they are beneficial in certain academic aspects, they also have negative implications. Technology in Education … 1 F Promotes independent learning in students The internet is a treasure trove* of information. Practically anything you need to know can be found online. Although there is a question of the credibility of the source and the data provided, it can still serve as an educational resource for students. Even without assistance from parents and teachers, students can just look up their lessons online. 2 G Prepares students for their future careers From the way technological advancements are going, it is obvious that the future will be digital and technology-focused. If students are well-versed** on using technology to collaborate and communicate as early as now, they will not have trouble fitting in, competing and finding jobs in the future. 3 D Allows teachers to provide students with new and interesting study resources Gone are the days when the only tools for teaching are limited to books, a blackboard or whiteboard, and a chalk or markers. With technology integrated to education, teachers can now incorporate images, videos and other graphics when delivering lessons. Specific websites, apps and programs will also enable teachers to vary how they provide instructions. This creates an exciting learning environment and promotes interest in education in general. 4 A Helps teachers to implement modern communication technologies in teaching Rather than spend an hour or so talking while the students listen, or have them read an entire chapter in silence, teachers and professors now have the option to use advanced teaching methods, such as podcasts, blogs and social media. When working with a particular group or one-on-one, teachers can take advantage of web conferencing technologies and other online communication tools. 5 B Results in a lack of interest in studying Because everything is now accessible online or through data saved in a computer or mobile devices, students are likely to develop poor studying habits and a lazy attitude towards education. Some of them may even think they can skip school because they can find answers and lessons online. Who needs teachers when you have internet and Google, right?

Textbooks, on the other hand, are seen as tools for learning. So, between a tablet and a textbook, students are likely to gravitate towards learning when reading a book, while they are likely to use a tablet to play games or spend time on social media. * treasure trove = a place that is ful of something good **wel -versed = knowing a lot about something A Helps teachers to implement modern communication technologies in teaching E Distracts students from studying B Results in a lack of interest in studying F Promotes independent learning in students C Reduces the role of teachers in educational process G Prepares students for their future careers D Al ows teachers to provide students with new and interesting study resources 2 Identify this vocabulary in the text and get the meaning from the context.
