Running head: SOCIAL ISSUE SOURCES 1 Effects of Technology in Education I never took the time to fully understand the negative effects of technology in education. For me technology in my classrooms felt more beneficial than not. After further research I have learned that technology does more harm than good in classrooms. Technology can be a distraction if not properly used. I personally have had professors ban the use of technology in classes, which to me was insulting. I felt like I pay to be here I should be allowed to use whatever resources are beneficial to me. I now have a new-found outlook on technology in education it can be a crutch. The use of technology in education can make cheating a lot easier for students. Technology can be crippling to students who depend on it. Some of the most common forms of cheating are copying and pasting someone else’s work as your own. Without technology it would be a lot harder to use someone else’s work without them giving it to you. On the other hand, if someone wants to cheat they will find a way to cheat. Technology is also used to hire people who are skilled in certain areas of education to do your work for you. Not all students have access to technology or cannot afford a computer. For these student’s technology required class work can be a lot harder to complete. It also limits what those without technology can have access to and when they can complete the course work. I personally struggled when my computer crashed, due to the fact that I live far away from the library. Transportation was also a problem at the time, technology has pros and cons.

Effects of Technology in Education
When discussing the impact of technology on education, the immediate assumption that
comes to mind would imply relating the Internet with education. Technology has nurtured the
Internet as its significant aspect which has contributed significantly to its effect in education,
mostly in classrooms. The Internet has become a real partnership strength with education which
can contribute significantly to the change in the current teaching methods. The current generation
depends more on technology as a tool for learning as compared to the other traditional tools,
which may lead to them needing their teachers even less soon. However, it is not always a
guarantee that technology will provide considerable effects on the quality of education. It can
result in producing a decline in a student's critical thinking ability which can then lead to poor
handling and analysis of class work. Therefore, technology has brought multiple adverse effects
in the education systems which may be difficult to prevent or reduce unless handled in a good
way, can be solved. Thus, both teachers and students see its full benefits in the classrooms.
A challenge to combating the adverse effect of technology in education involves
changing in the learning priorities. Salomon (2016) suggests that it is difficult to implement
different rules in schools where students are already familiar with technology in a certain way.
Nowadays, students focus more on where to find information that what the information is
making it difficult for them to fully concentrate on their studies which makes it possible that they
rely mostly on Google to get the answers they need. As a result, many students have changed
their perspectives regarding their learning experience and education as a whole (Chu 2014).
Through the Internet, technology has deprived the students of the ability to entirely focus in
classrooms making it difficult to fully take action to reduce the amount of technology they can
access. It makes it even more difficult to find better ways of using technology in classrooms

when students already have control of how they want to use it. Nagel06/04/13, D.(n.d)suggests
that the situation has also grown to result to a short attention span for students since the Internet
acts as a great distraction making it difficult to focus on their class work with the idea that the
Internet has everything including the answers to any question they have. In the current
generation, it is difficult for students to manage their time wisely with the existence of
technology, thus, making it even more challenging to resist impulse and irrational behavior that
may come with technology. Therefore, most students will depend on technology so much that it
will change their attitude of education from interactive to inactive(Christensen 2002).
Furthermore, inappropriate and overuse of technology is an excellent challenge to
combating the adverse effects of technology in education. According to Collins & Halverson
(2018), technology is easily overused by teachers and students in classrooms. Therefore, it is
bound to be misused, most of the time. Its overuse increases the adverse effects of technology
rather than reduce it, thus, making the whole learning experience tiresome and not enjoyable. For
example, it might be challenging to immediately stop a student from texting or using the Internet
during class, which might then be challenging to reduce such behavior as an adverse effect of
technology in education. The increasing rate of students' copy-pasting their assignments from the
Internet and not considering the correct language they use in their essays may also be as a result
to this challenge (Schmid, Bernard, Borokhovski, Tamim, Abrami, Surkes & Woods 2014).
Such actions may compromise the students' thinking abilities as they will depend more on
technology rather than their skills to fulfill their class work. In this scenario, it is difficult to take
action that can prevent or reduce the negative effects of technology in education as the students
already rely on technology for anything they do with regards to class work.

Also, teachers spend less time with their students making it difficult to reduce the
negative effects of technology in education. The less the amount of time teachers spend with
their students, the more the quality of education the students receive decreases. Everyone
understands whatever they see or understand differently. According to Christensen (2002), many
teachers feel useless with the rate of technology taking over the education sectors. That idea can
greatly affect class work since, without the help of a teacher, it is possible that many students
might misunderstand whatever they see on the Internet making it difficult for them to
comprehend their final information. However, Chu (2014) argues that most students prefer using
the Internet that being taught by a teacher in class making it a challenge to change this effect.
Additionally, this affects the students' overall performance and how they analyze
different subjects on their self. The Internet cannot deal with the students individually depending
on their level of understandi...
