Introduction of technology has enabled students to take part actively in the learning process, which therefore has given teachers an easier time to manage their student's Technology also provided students with more information online which has made their studies easier. Technology has the following effects on the classroom and students at large. Effects of Technology Technology has led to a change of role for both students and teachers in schools today. In the case of teachers, they are no longer the main source of information rather they facilitate, guide and direct students, by giving them guideline and suggestions from one student to and other or from one group to another and supporting student’s activities too. Teachers walk around in the classroom, supervising students as they work on their technology-supported work. Hence teachers find it easier to teach than before ( Goldie, 2016) . For the case of students, technology allows students to take part actively compared to a passive way that involved teachers, textbooks, among other sources of information. Technology enables them to think, make choices, and employ skills which make them actively participate, and it allows many users at the same time. Hence this attributed to the change in the role of students from passive learners to active learners in the classroom.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
