Combining education and technology can sometimes make things so much easier for the learning process. It’s something that many of us take for granted. We usually see technology as a source of improving our entertainment experience, without paying much attention to the edification of the human mind.
The importance of education in general is taken for granted so often by so many. So many of us forget that learning never stops. In fact, the notion of being 'educated' ought to be removed from our lexicon. ‘Educated’ should never be a concept that's spoken of in the past tense. It's a continuous process, and the best of it is in the future, never in the past.
