    Through the year 2020 we have learned so many ways in which technology can effect schools and learning in general. Learning is something that is quite often more hands on such as papers, pencils, pens, books, homework, ect. Now there’s many places that don’t have as advanced technology, but the use of technology in learning has changed the way that everything in a school is run.  With technology we are seeing how it is affecting student learning,  the way teachers are having to teach, and how schools have changed due to advancing technology.
    There are many ways in which technology has changed the learning environment for those of any age going to school. It gives people access to better resources and sources from other places all around the world with varying views and opinions on certain topics. “We can find almost anything online, in its most up-to-date version. For students, this means access to everything from research materials and educational apps to interactive edutainment and open resources from prestigious universities around the world.” (how technology impacts student learning) Technology can also make it so that if someone was sick or having a hard time understanding something and the way the teacher was explaining it didn’t make sense they have access to people who have different ways of explaining stuff that may make more sense to them. There are many such sights such as Schoology, PowerSchool, Google Classroom, as well as a few others. Technology can also help by keeping students engaged, and make them get to know their piers better. “Technology can help students by making learning more engaging and collaborative. Rather than memorizing facts, students learn by doing and through critical thinking.” (how technology impacts student learning) Learning and communication is not the only thing that has changed due to technology, the way teachers have to teach has also changed due to the ever evolving thing that is technology.
    The changes has lead to teachers having to change the way they have had to teach. Due to online learning and remote learning many teachers had to go from teaching with pencil and paper to posting questions online and having the kids interact with the page as told by the instructions of the homework. “Teachers can leverage technology to achieve new levels of productivity, implement useful digital tools to expand learning opportunities for students…” (How important is technology in education) It has also lead to teachers being able to get the students more into the topics that are being taught about. “ It can also connect teachers from around the globe and change the way teachers share their information. “This model links teachers to their students and to professional content, resources, and systems to help them improve their own instruction and personalize learning” (Uses of technology in teaching and learning) It also makes it easier for teachers who have to teach kids that are in different districts, and live incertain arias, by doing a hybrid program. “These strategies can be particularly useful in rural areas where blended or online learning can help teachers and students in remote areas overcome distance.” (Uses of technology and learning) The changes also can affect the way the school systems have to go along with the changes.
    The advancements have reshaped the way schools administer electronics. School systems started getting electronic devices to those from the grades of kindergarten until those in their senior year in high school. This is so that the students can work on work while in quarantine, or it’s a way for them to learn in different ways.”. Students no longer have to meet in the same place at the same time to learn together from an instructor.” (Technologies in education- higher education) The use of technology can be quite expensive, especially for schools that had to get a surplus for their students during the tract of COVID-19. “With just that remaining 10–20%, administrators have to buy everything else. Books, buildings, and buses are only some of the expenses — schools also have to find a way to provide technology.” (What is the real cost of technology in education?) Technology has many advantages, it may have a few disadvantages, but they are outweighed by the benefits.
    Technology will never replace human teachers because not everyone learns the same way, so a teacher may be able to teach in a way that more people may be able to explain. Technology helps the students learn, and the teachers can teach in different ways, and the school system has to worry about the cost of paying for the technology that everyone relies on. There are more benefits to technology than things that may cause issues.

    Very dry and I'm guessing for high school? I would further speculate public because if its private your parents deserve a refund.

    The year of 2020 has been a defining year. We all know it and only all but the most dimwitted or self delusional has come to understand that things will never go back to the way they were. And now the real question becomes;will things get better or worse?

    Technology in the classroom is great and all but we are talking about industrialized learning to produce industrial workers. An outdated teaching model that is focused on producing outdated worker/citizens to effectively run assembly lines, is not really gonna be greatly improved by allowing remote learning.

    More over , technology has brought In the creepo factor. Schools have been sued for voyerstically watching kids at home on school laptops. Kids are tagged and montired going into and out of school like they're convicts or property. Adults still dont give enough respect to children and other adults ain't protecting the kids enough and sometimes it just because we trusted the schools that took our deposits when they gave our kids school issued laptops, are creepy pervos nobody knew about previously.

    Our technology can be a great tool for improving learning but as long as we continue the tradition of shitty teachers and shitty systems were just gonna get different flavors of shitty results.

    To teach others the love of learning for it's own sake is something that should start at the beginning, not at uni.

    Man, have you seen all the latest creepiness and all the shit being withheld?  Direct brain interfaces, solid state portable batteries  that last decades and come in a variety  of styles, pneumatic cars, hydrogen cars, other kinds of elf driving trucks and cars, legit invisablity, CRISPR ...... sheeeeeeiiit

    We live in an age of high technology

    Unfortunately us common folks dont get regular access to it cause rich folks love their money and new innovations that threaten their money can be bought and shelved so they can continue making more money with out any regard to the harm done to humanity.

    Meh , I got a love hate relationship with it all... their is a problem with the love of learning... once you learn who works at controling industries and nations for their own benefit and how the common man is suppressed and that honestly , nations can be seen as population farms, doctors that have sworn oaths save will let you die for money... you learn enough to see the bigger picture and it gets really depressing.


    Anyways, my apologies for being such a debbie downer.

    Good luck with your essay.

    No problem, it was actually really interesting to read your opinion, and most of what you said was true, that's why for my essay I went with topics that I use and things that public schools in my aria use.

    Please suggest that the top 100 teachers in each country do Zoom lessons for the entire nation and the rest of us are furloughed indefinitely just in case one of them realises they've been duped and someone else has got to do it for a bit.

    I think whenever you're discussing things like this, you really need to define terms and agree on a goal up front.

    Is the goal to improve a child's education? If so, what does that even mean?

    If all children are doing online learning, then why isn't it being rolled out via pre-recorded videos and due date, like adult online learning is? It's a lot cheaper to make high budget high quality courses than it it to pay teachers every week. Because that would hurt the economy as thousands of teachers lose their jobs is why. So clearly there are other factors that need to be taken in to account.

    These factors will change for each country and organisation, but without knowing what exactly is being discussed, it's running around in circles.

    Through the year 2020 we have learned so many ways in which technology can effect schools and learning in general. Learning is something that is quite often more hands on such as papers, pencils, pens, books, homework, ect. Now there’s many places that don’t have as advanced technology, but the use of technology in learning has changed the way that everything in a school is run. With technology we are seeing how it is affecting student learning, the way teachers are having to teach, and how schools have changed due to advancing technology.
    There are many ways in which technology has changed the learning environment for those of any age going to school. It gives people access to better resources and sources from other places all around the world with varying views and opinions on certain topics. “We can find almost anything online, in its most up-to-date version. For students, this means access to everything from research materials and educational apps to interactive edutainment and open resources from prestigious universities around the world.” (how technology impacts student learning) Technology can also make it so that if someone was sick or having a hard time understanding something and the way the teacher was explaining it didn’t make sense they have access to people who have different ways of explaining stuff that may make more sense to them. There are many such sights such as Schoology, PowerSchool, Google Classroom, as well as a few others. Technology can also help by keeping students engaged, and make them get to know their piers better. “Technology can help students by making learning more engaging and collaborative. Rather than memorizing facts, students learn by doing and through critical thinking.” (how technology impacts student learning) Learning and communication is not the only thing that has changed due to technology, the way teachers have to teach has also changed due to the ever evolving thing that is technology.
    The changes has lead to teachers having to change the way they have had to teach. Due to online learning and remote learning many teachers had to go from teaching with pencil and paper to posting questions online and having the kids interact with the page as told by the instructions of the homework. “Teachers can leverage technology to achieve new levels of productivity, implement useful digital tools to expand learning opportunities for students…” (How important is technology in education) It has also lead to teachers being able to get the students more into the topics that are being taught about. “ It can also connect teachers from around the globe and change the way teachers share their information. “This model links teachers to their students and to professional content, resources, and systems to help them improve their own instruction and personalize learning” (Uses of technology in teaching and learning) It also makes it easier for teachers who have to teach kids that are in different districts, and live incertain arias, by doing a hybrid program. “These strategies can be particularly useful in rural areas where blended or online learning can help teachers and students in remote areas overcome distance.” (Uses of technology and learning) The changes also can affect the way the school systems have to go along with the changes.
    The advancements have reshaped the way schools administer electronics. School systems started getting electronic devices to those from the grades of kindergarten until those in their senior year in high school. This is so that the students can work on work while in quarantine, or it’s a way for them to learn in different ways.”. Students no longer have to meet in the same place at the same time to learn together from an instructor.” (Technologies in education- higher education) The use of technology can be quite expensive, especially for schools that had to get a surplus for their students during the tract of COVID-19. “With just that remaining 10–20%, administrators have to buy everything else.

    I did a once through and made some changes based on what I would have written. Couple comments:

    From a narrative perspective, the intro of the paper could use some tightening up. Which technologies in particular are affecting classroom learning the most? Is it the ability for students to conduct "face to face" classes via Zoom? Lessons being uploaded to blackboard? It also might be worthwhile mentioning what some of the challenges are to remote learning. Have grades improved or dropped since transitioning to remote learning? Are different socioeconomic groups affected differently (e.g. do poorer school districts have it worse than richer ones?) Finally, what would you speculate the future role technology will have when it comes to learning?

    From a technical perspective, there's a couple things you need to watch out.

    -1. Inconsistent verb tense. You have a couple of spots were you go between past and present tense so try and watch out for that.
    -2. Run on sentences and weasel words. Feel free to try and simplify your sentence structure. A couple spots were hard to read because there were excess words and/or transition into another thought without a period.
    -3. Citations. I noticed you copied verbatim quotes from your sources. While this is fine, I would encourage you to paraphrase some spots as this could give you better transitions and overall flow.

    Here's my chop btw:

    During 2020, we learned many ways in which technology can affect schools and learning. Born out of necessity, cutting edge technologies have allowed for the physical classroom to make the transition to the digital space. With technology we are seeing how it is affecting student learning, the way teachers are having to teach, and how schools have changed.

    There are many ways in which technology has changed the learning environment. It gives people access to sources from all around the world with varying views and opinions on certain topics. “We can find almost anything online, in its most up-to-date version. For students, this means access to everything from research materials and educational apps to interactive edutainment and open resources from prestigious universities around the world.” (How Technology Impacts Student Learning). In the event that a student was sick or having a difficult time understanding a particular topic, technology can bridge the learning gap by providing access to materials the student would have otherwise missed out on or to resources which could better help explain the material. Websites such as Schoology, PowerSchool, and Google Classroom help keep students engaged and facilitate them getting to know their peers better. “Technology can help students by making learning more engaging and collaborative. Rather than memorizing facts, students learn by doing and through critical thinking.” (How Technology Impacts Student Learning ).Learning and communication is not the only thing that has changed. The medium by which teachers teach has also changed due to evolving technological advancements.

    Online learning has accelerated the transition for teachers from teaching with pencil and paper in a traditional classroom setting to posting questions online and having the kids interact virtually. “Teachers can leverage technology to achieve new levels of productivity, implement useful digital tools to expand learning opportunities for students…” (How important is technology in education). This has lead to teachers being able to connect more with students more into the topics that are being taught about. “It can also connect teachers from around the globe and change the way teachers share their information. “This model links teachers to their students and to professional content, resources, and systems to help them improve their own instruction and personalize learning” (Uses of technology in teaching and learning) It also makes it easier for teachers to work with kids that live in different districts by doing a hybrid program. “These strategies can be particularly useful in rural areas where blended or online learning can help teachers and students in remote areas overcome distance.” (Uses of technology and learning) The changes also can affect the way the school systems have to go along with the changes. (What does this sentence mean?)

    The advancements have reshaped the way schools administer electronic devices. Starting in kindergarten, students have increasingly been issued personal laptops. These have allowed students to work on homework and participate in classroom activities during remote study. “Students no longer have to meet in the same place at the same time to learn together from an instructor.” (Technologies in education- higher education) The use of technology can be quite expensive, especially for schools that had to get a surplus for their students during the tract of COVID-19. “With just that remaining 10–20%, administrators have to buy everything else. Books, buildings, and buses are only some of the expenses —schools also have to find a way to provide technology.” (What is the real cost of technology in education?) Technology has many advantages, it may have a few disadvantages, but they are outweighed by the benefits.

Due to online learning and remote learning many teachers had to go from teaching with pencil and paper to posting questions online and having the kids interact with the page as told by the instructions of the homework. “Teachers can leverage technology to achieve new levels of productivity, implement useful digital tools to expand learning opportunities for students…” (How important is technology in education) It has also lead to teachers being able to get the students more into the topics that are being taught about. “ It can also connect teachers from around the globe and change the way teachers share their information. “This model links teachers to their students and to professional content, resources, and systems to help them improve their own instruction and personalize learning” (Uses of technology in teaching and learning) It also makes it easier for teachers who have to teach kids that are in different districts, and live incertain arias, by doing a hybrid program. “These strategies can be particularly useful in rural areas where blended or online learning can help teachers and students in remote areas overcome distance.” (Uses of technology and learning) The changes also can affect the way the school systems have to go along with the changes.
    The advancements have reshaped the way schools administer electronics. School systems started getting electronic devices to those from the grades of kindergarten until those in their senior year in high school.

Technology has many advantages, it may have a few disadvantages, but they are outweighed by the benefits.
    Technology will never replace human teachers because not everyone learns the same way, so a teacher may be able to teach in a way that more people may be able to explain.

    I did a once through and made some changes based on what I would have written. Couple comments:

    From a narrative perspective, the intro of the paper could use some tightening up. Which technologies in particular are affecting classroom learning the most? Is it the ability for students to conduct "face to face" classes via Zoom? Lessons being uploaded to blackboard? It also might be worthwhile mentioning what some of the challenges are to remote learning. Have grades improved or dropped since transitioning to remote learning? Are different socioeconomic groups affected differently (e.g. do poorer school districts have it worse than richer ones?) Finally, what would you speculate the future role technology will have when it comes to learning?

    From a technical perspective, there's a couple things you need to watch out.

    -1. Inconsistent verb tense. You have a couple of spots were you go between past and present tense so try and watch out for that.
    -2. Run on sentences and weasel words. Feel free to try and simplify your sentence structure. A couple spots were hard to read because there were excess words and/or transition into another thought without a period.
    -3. Citations. I noticed you copied verbatim quotes from your sources. While this is fine, I would encourage you to paraphrase some spots as this could give you better transitions and overall flow.

    Here's my chop btw:

    During 2020, we learned many ways in which technology can affect schools and learning. Born out of necessity, cutting edge technologies have allowed for the physical classroom to make the transition to the digital space. With technology we are seeing how it is affecting student learning, the way teachers are having to teach, and how schools have changed.

    There are many ways in which technology has changed the learning environment. It gives people access to sources from all around the world with varying views and opinions on certain topics. “We can find almost anything online, in its most up-to-date version. For students, this means access to everything from research materials and educational apps to interactive edutainment and open resources from prestigious universities around the world.” (How Technology Impacts Student Learning). In the event that a student was sick or having a difficult time understanding a particular topic, technology can bridge the learning gap by providing access to materials the student would have otherwise missed out on or to resources which could better help explain the material. Websites such as Schoology, PowerSchool, and Google Classroom help keep students engaged and facilitate them getting to know their peers better. “Technology can help students by making learning more engaging and collaborative. Rather than memorizing facts, students learn by doing and through critical thinking.” (How Technology Impacts Student Learning ).Learning and communication is not the only thing that has changed. The medium by which teachers teach has also changed due to evolving technological advancements.

    Online learning has accelerated the transition for teachers from teaching with pencil and paper in a traditional classroom setting to posting questions online and having the kids interact virtually. “Teachers can leverage technology to achieve new levels of productivity, implement useful digital tools to expand learning opportunities for students…” (How important is technology in education). This has lead to teachers being able to connect more with students more into the topics that are being taught about. “It can also connect teachers from around the globe and change the way teachers share their information. “This model links teachers to their students and to professional content, resources, and systems to help them improve their own instruction and personalize learning” (Uses of technology in teaching and learning) It also makes it easier for teachers to work with kids that live in different districts by doing a hybrid program. “These strategies can be particularly useful in rural areas where blended or online learning can help teachers and students in remote areas overcome distance.” (Uses of technology and learning) The changes also can affect the way the school systems have to go along with the changes. (What does this sentence mean?)

    The advancements have reshaped the way schools administer electronic devices. Starting in kindergarten, students have increasingly been issued personal laptops. These have allowed students to work on homework and participate in classroom activities during remote study. “Students no longer have to meet in the same place at the same time to learn together from an instructor.” (Technologies in education- higher education) The use of technology can be quite expensive, especially for schools that had to get a surplus for their students during the tract of COVID-19. “With just that remaining 10–20%, administrators have to buy everything else. Books, buildings, and buses are only some of the expenses —schools also have to find a way to provide technology.” (What is the real cost of technology in education?) Technology has many advantages, it may have a few disadvantages, but they are outweighed by the benefits.

    Technology will never replace human teachers because not everyone learns the same way, so a teacher may be able to teach in a way that more people may be able to explain. Technology helps the students learn, and the teachers can teach in different ways, and the school system has to worry about the cost of paying for the technology that everyone relies on. There are more benefits to technology than things that may cause issues.
