Technology is a broad term that encompasses the devices and systems we use to help us achieve our goals. It can be as complex as the Antikythera mechanism, a mechanical analog computer dating back to the first century BCE, or as simple as your smartphone or tablet.
In business, technology helps companies stand out from the competition and compete more effectively in their markets. It increases productivity, enhances information transfer, and helps streamline team performance.
It can also improve customer sales and employee efficiency, resulting in higher profit margins for your company. The newest technology also allows you to create and implement new products or services that your customers want and need.
As a teacher, you can use educational apps like Kahoot to have students review key concepts after class. This is a great way to get everyone engaged and provides an opportunity for all students to participate, even those who may be reluctant. The app can also be used to translate classwork for non-native speakers and post it on a backchannel device or the class Twitter account for further review.
Educators are constantly on the lookout for ways to integrate technology into their lessons and classrooms. Using tools that provide instant feedback, like online grading and student progress reports, gives all stakeholders access to the data they need to make informed decisions about a student’s learning needs. It also makes it easier to identify areas where a student might need extra support and provide personalized instruction.
