But they think that old methods that were applied in the classrooms have more benefits than that high tech ones.
And some people also consider that these new technology may change the role of both student and teacher to be unlike as usual. One of its disadvantages according to the author’s opinion is that it may also distract students and fragment their attention…. “Why am I against using technology in the classroom?
