Technology resources are any equipment, systems and software used to help facilitate learning. They can be a wide variety of digital tools that are useful for teachers and students in virtual, hybrid and traditional classrooms. They are also commonly known as eLearning tools.
In many schools, students are using different kinds of electronic and digital resources that are transforming the educational system. Some of these include:
There are many advantages to integrating technology in the curriculum. For one, it encourages students to become independent learners. It helps them prepare assignments without having to rely on others for assistance. It also enables them to access unlimited information and data on their laptops or mobile devices. It also teaches them to work collaboratively and effectively with peers and teachers.
Students can use technology to make presentations or create spreadsheets that help them organize and communicate their ideas. They can even access a huge variety of online resources including informational websites, academic journals, and tutorials/guidebooks. In addition, the availability of technology in school helps save money on paper books, notebooks, and boards. It can also reduce costs on school supplies like pens, pencils, crayons, and educational outings.
While technology provides a wealth of benefits in the classroom, there are some restrictions that must be observed. For example, technology resources should not be used for lobbying or political campaigns. They also should not be used for private business or commercial activities, and users must abide by the terms of the University’s Technology Resources Policy.
