Technology today has become an essential part of our daily lives. Individuals across all the age groups i.e. young professionals, elders, school children or are toddlers of today’s generation, are hooked and engaged via different technological platforms to complete their aspirations. It’s being used for networking, educational purposes and to buy and sell stuff online, etc.

Gradually, technology’s use can also be seen for educational purposes these days, especially in the international boarding schools near Pune in India.  Even though we all know as of how best technology improves the knowledge quotient, but still there are many groups and individuals who desist from using technology due to their age old customary beliefs.

Below is the list of things that makes it so appealing for all age groups to use technology:

  • There are so many things we are not aware off as what’s happening around the world. It is that one visual medium that is likely to attract your attention towards the wider world. Technology has enabled us to access information and helped in expanding our horizons.


  • A technology facilitated classroom is better equipped to hook the students of any class. This even improves their grasping power and allows them to logically learn the concept rather than promoting rote-learning.


  • It enhances the collaborative environment and engages the student and gives them the chance to work together with their classmates.


  • Children who are familiar with technology enabled learning tools and devices, learn the fundamentals of technology and become more sovereign. They become hands-on to use technology at a later stage to turn into a tech-savvy future citizen.


  • Each day, students tend to learn something new from technology. Sometimes their lessons become so dull that they want to learn something beyond their concepts.


  • Internet provides them enormous information on various topics and serves as a think tank for all age groups. Students tend to take more responsibility to individually complete their task work.


Mobile technology also enhances access to parents, teachers to ensure clear communication and transparency. There can be no element of inconsistency as the data is recorded for a lifetime.
