Abstract

Technology continues to change the way we live, work, and play. Technology has a striking impact on learners and learning. Learning technologies can adapt to the needs, requirements and preferences of each individual user, therefore they can provide equal access to all. Learning technologies present the opportunity to augment or replace the role which was traditionally played by the teacher. Technology is also changing education in two ways: first, by offering new resources to engage students in learning, and second, by giving them an opportunity to learn about new technological fields. We would not dispute that a blackboard is a learning technology, but it is not the kind of artifact to focus. The fundamental interest is in how technologies expand human capabilities for knowledge creation, sharing, and learning, so the interest is in the technologies for learning. Today, we have an extraordinary technologies that range from Internet games to various types of handheld devices, and some of them are well-suited for immerse learning environments. This paper provides an overview of recent trends in industry and media that have made technology-based learning such a rapidly growing phenomenon. This paper gives the benefits and challenges that are associated with providing learning via technology. This paper also presents two emerging technologies - The Next Generation Internet and Natural Language Interfaces and discusses their potential for Learning in Rural India.
