Living in a digital era

Technology today has a great impact on our life making it either easy and simple or complex and troublesome. This impact is in every aspect of our everyday activities, where technology helps us in simple ways, such as set up a digital alarm to wake up, find a recipe to cook something new or in more complex ways such as helping us schedule activities or plan for the future.

This impact  is clearly seen in education too where students are expected to know how to use it in order to do their exercises or homework. Advanced digital tools today provide the opportunity to present, write, share and visualise ideas and solutions in a more innovative way. Collaboration and cooperation with others demand a more “digital” way. Meeting and talking in person is not enough. Being “digital” is a must.

The students of today are born within technology. Using social media and digital means is more common to them than the students of the past. The following social networks are an inseparable part of their life. Do you know all of them? If the students use them for their everyday interactions with others why not use them as part of their studies too if they enable a better interaction, collaboration, information communication?
