Ed. Tech 1 (Technology: boon or Bane?)

  2. 2. Objective: 1. To define technology 2. To explore technology may it be a boon or bane
  3. 3. What is Technology?
  4. 4. Technology (from Greek τέχνη, techne, "art, skill, cunning of hand"; and -λογία, -logia[1]) is the making, modification, usage, and knowledge of tools,machines, techniques, crafts, systems, and methods of organization, in order to solve a problem, improve a pre-existing solution to a problem, achieve a goal, handle an applied input/output relation or perform a specific function. It can also refer to the collection of such tools, including machinery, modifications, arrangements and procedures. Technologies significantly affect human as well as other animal species' ability to control and adapt to their natural environments. The term can either be applied generally or to specific areas: examples include construction technology, medical technology, and information technology. (
  5. 5. Technology is a blessing for man. With technology, there is a lot that we can do which we could not do then. With cell phones, webcam, you will be closer to someone miles and miles away. So far yet so close! That is your feeling when you talk through a cell phone to a beloved one who is far away from home. Just think of the many human lives saved because of the speedy notifications via cell phones. Just think of how your teaching and learning have become more novel, stimulating, exciting and engaging with the use of multimedia in the classroom. With your tv, you can watch events as they happen all over the globe.
  6. 6. However, when not used properly, technology becomes a detriment to learning and development. It can destroy relationships. Think of the husband who is glued to tv unmindful of his wife seeking his attention. This may eventually erode marital relationship. Think of the student who surfs the internet for pornographic scenes. He will have trouble with his development. The abuse and misuse of the internet will have far reaching unfavorable effects on his moral life. The teacher who schedules class tv viewing for the whole hour to free herself from a one – hour teaching and so can engage in “tsismis” , likewise will not benefit from technology. Neither will her class truly benefit from the whole period of tv viewing
  7. 7. Technology contributes much to the improvement of the teaching – learning process and to the humanization of life. It is indeed a blessing. But when not used properly, it becomes a detriment to instruction and human progress and development
