Technological advancement spreads like fire in today’s generation...

From cell phones to computers and televisions to laptops, all of them are very useful to our day-to-day living. To be globally competitive, one must get acquainted with these gadgets.

One way of using this so-called technological advancement is the “spreading of news and information.” The age of newspapers is already done, now a new era has come with the internet and television.

Two of the most famous and widely spread devices are the internet and television. If one wants to impose information on gadgets to the public, these two are what you need. However, which of the two are more effective?

Television is somewhat a source of entertainment. It is now a part of the daily lives of Filipinos. Now, there are three major stations vying for the people’s attention. However, the problem with television is that…it is not connected worldwide. You have to connect first to a cable company, and not all can view your video or information you have posted all the time because it is scheduled.

Internet is also the ace in this field. From music uploads, picture downloads, online chatting and video posting. Name it and you all have it. When you post a video on the net, then it can be accessed worldwide all the time.

Technology nowadays is continuously improving!

Gadgets such as PSP, MP3, computers, and many more are commonly used. All of them are invented to make one’s life easier.

Technology affects human beings, most especially to students. In fact, students utilize computers for making their projects and assignments. They can surf over the internet for more information. Communication is also a factor, that’s the reason why computers are made. Through computers, communication is easily conducted from one place to another place. But, are all gadgets used for good?

Technology is also used for having fun like for instance, computer games. These are indispensable to everyone, especially children in order for them to play different sorts of games and to have fun. Unfortunately, children and adults are abusing the so-called technology. Because of their games' addiction, their grades are affected.

Computers and other gadgets are useful and, at the same time, harmful in our daily living. But remember, too much usage of gadgets can lead to games’ addiction and failure. Never forget that regret comes in the end. What about the integration of technology in education, particularly in curriculum?

As far as education is concerned, the integration of technology in education is no longer a "novel" notion. Because technology has become such an integral part of society, it is essential to integrate its use in education in a variety of ways. The use of computer technology has moved beyond computer assisted instruction in the form of tutorials or drill and practice.

Today's technology can provide teachers and students with opportunities for teaching and learning that were impossible in the past. Computers can be used as devices for communicating with people literally a world apart. They can be used as tools to create instructional materials or as presentation devices to provide information in ways never before possible.
