Computers themselves, and software yet to be developed, will revolutionize the way we learn. But, the spread of computers and the Internet will put jobs in two categories – People who tell computers what to do, and people who are told by computers what to do. The real danger is not that computers will begin to think like men, but that men will begin to think like computers.
Be always aware dear LLET friend that computers are finite machines – when given the same input, they always produce the same output. They have lots of memory but no imagination.
Computers are magnificent tools for the realization of our dreams, but no machine can replace the human spark of spirit, compassion, love, and understanding !
LEARN ABOUT TECHNOLOGIES – EARN AN INSIGHT INTO THE FUTURE
Technology makes the world a new place –
Use it, but don’t let it use you !

While more technology goes home with sick people, more can correspond with health suppliers remotely. Distant access also enables more patients to get the required care where and when it is convenient for them. Computer and smartphone applications for video calling allow patients to have practical doctor’s visits from their home.
Patients who qualify for a medical program can take home a computer monitor and a camera, in addition to equipment to observe vital symptoms remotely.

Science and Technology
Imagine a world without a cell phone. Nowadays, the mere thought of losing battery on our cell phones in the middle of the day can send some into experiencing panic attacks.
Forget communication, where we are as a society, it is literally impossible to go a day without using science and technology in our daily lives. The vital importance of science and technology is demonstrated by how it is always, constantly surrounding us. More often than not, we have no idea how much we are truly effected every single day. The power to illuminate a dark room, the vehicle that transports us wherever we wish to go – All thanks to the world of science and technology.
Exploratory examination involves a wide mixture of fields running from the investigation of diverse extensions of science to generally exceptional fields like space investigation, human hereditary qualities and cloning. Logical study endeavors to investigate and comprehend the working of the physical world. It tries to break down the events in nature and increase learning about nature through experimentation. As exploratory exploration goes for picking up learning of the complexities of nature, it is essential for the advancement of humankind. The apparently unimaginable accomplishments have been made conceivable, because of the experimental examination.
There are numerous benefits from science and technology. It is remarkable how a society can easily adapt and never cease to ask questions. Our collective consciousness, with its curiosity, has brought the human life to a place where we can refrigerate our food instead of hunting like our ancestors did. Prior to technological advancement, there were no established societies. The positive effects of technology on society has brought progress and allowed us to reach new heights that were never conceived of before. Without science and technology we are left stagnant.
Any sufficiently advanced technology is equivalent to magic … Technology is a word that describes something that doesn’t work yet …
but remember dear LLET friend, one machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men – no machine can do the work of one extraordinary man …
Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the people working together and motivating them – the teacher is the most important !
LEARN ABOUT EDUCATION – EARN A TREASURE THAT WILL FOLLOW YOU EVERYWHERE
A smart man makes a mistake, learns from it, and never makes that mistake again. But a wise man finds a smart man and learns from him how to avoid the mistake altogether !
Education gives us a knowledge of the world around us and changes it into something better. It develops in us a perspective of looking at life. It helps us build opinions and have points of view on things in life.
People debate over the subject of whether education is the only thing that gives knowledge. Some say education is the process of gaining information about the surrounding world while knowledge is something very different. They are right. But then again, information cannot be converted into knowledge without education. Education makes us capable of interpreting things, among other things. It is not just about lessons in textbooks. It is about the lessons of life.
Education helps to make better people
Although humans are the most advanced and developed species on Earth, they are in actuality nothing more than animals who think and behave in a rational way. But without education, that rationalism cannot be brought about within an individual. It is only by being educated in rules, regulation and manners of life that a person can achieve the ability to think rationally and become a well-mannered person.
It brings confidence and ensures a successful future
Nothing can be achieved in life if we don’t have faith in ourselves. Education plays a very important role in cultivating self-confidence within us, so that we can become independent, communicate efficiently with others and overcome various difficulties that impede us from reaching our goals.
Education is the means by which a person can have a happy and successful life. It helps us to recognize our hidden skills and talents, using which we can build up our career, gain employment and have a secured future. Thus, it helps us to achieve new heights in life.
Helps To Think Logically and helps progress of a nation
An educated individual makes attempts to understand everything that is unknown to them, instead of following others blindly. They question the integrity of misconceptions and try to find logical alternatives for explaining the truth behind them. Thus, education helps a person to think logically and reject false facts.
Educated people are the building blocks of a nation. They know how to differentiate right from wrong, and do not need the advice of a third person for doing so. They are pretty aware of the resources available on their own land as well as the correct methods to utilize them. However, world today lacks in an efficient system for educating the rural masses and that is what’s hindering the social and economic progress of the many countries to a great extent. So, it is very important to give equal importance to urban as well as rural education in world and to help that more people understand such things as fundamental rights, duties towards the country, existing laws and rules and moral and ethical values of life. Not only that this will aid all the citizens to judge things more analytically, but also allow them to contribute effectively towards development of the nation as a whole.
Education is one of the most essential virtues in the life of an individual. Apart from being a necessity of the society, it is an important symbol of freedom and helps in leading a good life.
One thing we can do dear LLET friend, is to provide education for all: no child left behind and change the world for good!!!
