Education And Technology. Adopting a 21st century model in the educational system.

Questioning the degree of importance of technology to education is not only chaffy, but can be described as trying to herd a group of cats. I would love to discuss how 21st century discoveries, innovations and breakthroughs in technology has influenced the educational sector in a few ways. Firstly, revision and reevaluation of syllabus. Many new inventions and discoveries have impacted and made changes to laws and hypothesis that were once taught in schools. Advance in technology has put many of our known theories and facts to the test, provided opportunity for updates to those that can be updated and totally cancelling out obsolete and incorrect ‘facts’. A very good example of this is our solar system. It was popularly believed and accepter that we had nine planets in orbit around the Sun, until American astrophysicist, Niel deGrasse Tyson, made a notable and controversial discovery that Pluto(the 9th planet) is a dwarf planet in the Kuiper belt, a ring of bodies beyond the orbit of Neptune and cannot be counted as a planet. This discovery changed the whole narrative, the Pluto killer, as he was referred to enlightened the world that Pluto, our once beloved planet, was one of many several objects of similar size in the Kuiper belt and the scattered disc, including the dwarf planet Eris, and so isn’t a planet. This was a revolution in astronomy, as it became quite controversial. Secondly, is the most obvious good a 21st century model has done in education. Electronics, including children tablet for teaching even small kids from the comfort of their homes, laptops and smartphones for bigger ones to make research. This was actually quite invaluable during the pandemic.
