IT and its impact on Education

The combination of education and technology has been considered the main key to human progress. Education feeds technology which in turn forms the basis of education. It is therefore evident that information technology has affected changes to the methods, purpose and perceived potential of education.
Information Technology and the purpose of education

While education in the past has been centered on teaching and learning, information technology has affected changes to the aims of education, therefore now education is increasingly perceived as the process of creating, preserving, integrating, transmitting and applying knowledge. The perceptions of knowledge itself have also changed whereas knowledge could once have been perceived as unchanging, it should now be perceived as “revisionary, creative, personal and pluralistic”.  The future of education is not predetermined by modern information technology, but rather that this “future will hinge prominently on how we construct (and construe) the place of technology” in the education process. We are moving from “just-in-case” education to “just-for-you” education” where education is targeted to meet the needs of individual students.
