Technology and Education:
Almost every teacher understands the impact of technology on education. Additionally, while some followers thrive in online education settings, others lag for numerous factors, including support resources. For instance, a student who already struggled in face-to-face situations may struggle even more in the current condition. These students may have relied on resources that they no longer have in their homes.
Still, most learners typically show confidence in using online education when they have the resources, as studies have suggested. However, online education may pose difficulties for teachers, particularly in places where it has not been the norm.
