Helps the society catch up with the need of students

Students are always exploring what technology has to offer. Ultimately, they develop needs that can only be met by the use of technology. For instance, the use of laptops in class. It is becoming a widespread practice and thus, a need for students.

Helps with a visual aid

Long gone are the times when visual aid came as drawings on papers and such. With technology, you can use a computer and a projector, a smartboard, and so on to show the students the images that relate to what they are studying.
