Do you know many people in their twenties who don’t own smartphones? I can’t say that I do. In this day and age, many young adults are becoming linked with one another through the use of modern technologies; namely smartphones, internet access, and computers.
The dependence upon these technologies can take away from so many “real-life” social experiences. However, Eucatex President Flavio Maluf says that these technologies can help tremendously with educational opportunities for college-aged people. He says this idea is more feasible if their technological focus is steered towards learning. By turning students’ focus away from using these devices solely for leisure, young people will be more motivated to take education seriously.
Studies show, in fact, that a significantly larger percentage of student use the internet at home than at their schools. Almost half of all of the educators in Brazil use the internet in their classrooms and engage their students in materials such as videos, slideshows, PowerPoint presentations, and even games. Maluf says on Twitter that the satisfactory academic results of students support his claim.
