Technology is evolving at an unprecedented rate. Our daily lives are being transformed in every aspect: communication is constant, cars can steer themselves, and even grocery shopping can be done online.
However, integrating technology in the classroom has been relatively slow. Despite evidence that digital learning tools can benefit every student, regardless of their learning style, many teachers are hesitant to incorporate educational technology into their teaching.
Impact and role of technology in education
Let's take a look at the ways using technology in education could increase student engagement, prepare students for their futures, and streamline the learning process for everyone.
All students learn differently, which is why there is no single right or wrong way to teach. Rather, it's important that education be tailored to each individual in order to play to their strengths and strengthen their weaknesses.
A lot of educational technologies, like learning management systems, provide students who have different learning styles with the proper learning materials and digital resources so they can succeed in school.
QuillBot writes with students, not for them. Our Paraphraser provides suggestions on how to strengthen writing while maintaining each individual's voice, ensuring that students get to be themselves while polishing their academic writing.
Our cowriting assistant gives the best personalized learning experience by allowing students to customize their writing process for every essay and report they work on. Need help writing an introduction? There's a button for that. You're not great at coming up with ideas or showing counter points? QuillBot’s cowriting assistant will help with that, too.

Collaboration and communication
The ease of project collaboration makes it so students are more willing to work together and engage with the course material. All they need is internet connectivity; they don't even need to be in the same room to work on the same project.
Interactive and engaging learning
Personalized learning will always be engaging learning because its very nature is customization to the student. When students can learn at their own pace, work on group projects from the comfort of their homes, and learn the necessary skills they specifically need to excel in class, there will be an increase in student engagement.
The interactive software used to power QuillBot gives students live suggestions and quick lessons on grammar and sentence structure. It prepares students to recognize and correct mistakes as they happen, improving their writing in real-time.
Educational technology doesn't just benefit students. Teachers can automate tasks, such as organizing records and lesson plans if they incorporate technology into their workflows. In addition, when students learn alongside these educational software programs, their grades improve and teachers have less to correct, saving them time and brain power.
There are a number of digital tools that teachers can harness that will improve their lives, lead to accelerated learning for their students, and make class time more enjoyable. In fact, QuillBot has a few that instructors might like to integrate into their teaching practices.
Our Plagiarism Checker is a lifesaver when it comes to checking for duplicate content and correct citations. Just upload an assignment, and QuillBot does the rest. The same goes for our Summarizer, which will create a bulleted list of important points from any document you upload.
Not to mention, when teachers champion the use of educational technology like QuillBot, they also empower students to improve themselves as individual learners. When students use Grammar Checker and Paraphraser on their assignments, they submit work that has fewer errors and better quality overall.
When we integrate technology in education, we're enabling students and teachers to work at their own pace, improve test scores, and embrace change moving into the digital future. There are so many advantages to leveraging technology in the education system, and slowly but surely, more school districts and education programs are catching on.
