The benefits of technology and education is undeniable, it will help your children learn to read and further understand topics which we were limited to in the past. That being said I think it is very important to be aware of the qualities in the education that we had. We do not want to be completely isolated by technology, socializing and inter student/teacher relations are apart of becoming well rounded people. We as a society should not be totally focused on results, we should be concerned with creating well rounded and social people for the future.
