Abstract

Abstract: It is important for education to adapt if it is going to meet the needs of today’s learners. Technology should not be seen as a threat by educators, but rather a tool to help them change and reform how they do things in the educational ecosystem. This paper looks at how technology can impact the fields of language learning, soft skills, and the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) subjects. It provides a brief outline of how technology can improve the educational experience of students. This paper looks at possible issues that may arise with the use of technology in education to date and aims to show that technology can make the educational experience for educators and learners more comprehensive, flexible, beneficial and perhaps more enjoyable. Although integrating technology in education can be challenging, it is worth the effort.
