The tool that would be most beneficial based on this research, for both this author’s professional and personal practice is the use of tablets. Tablets are beneficial in nearly every professional practice and for vast personal use. A tablet’s diversity offers access to work, educational, and personal documents, e-books, and applications (Fabian & Maclean, 2014). The ability to be online and connected at all times ensures that nothing is missed. One can really have everything they need in one place. You can take notes for class, write your grocery list, deposit a check, complete employment training, and read your favorite book whenever you need to (Katzan, 2015). Tablets can be customized to meet your own needs and the flow of your life. Tablets that are used for learning provide the ability to get to e-books, chat rooms, online classrooms, create documents, watch videos, and gain access to libraries all in a small and portable device (Young, Klemz, & Murphy, 2003).
This technology guide provides several examples of technology and their benefits in education and learning. I plan on using this guide in the future should an opportunity arise for me to share the vast benefits of technology. If I am given the chance to provide my findings and research to my professional career, I would jump at such a great opportunity. This guide would be very beneficial for individuals who need to incorporate learning into their professional careers. Additionally, this guide would be beneficial to parents and educators who are looking to add technology into their lives and curriculum. The goal is to make learning more accessible, beneficial, and adaptable for all learning styles, which this guide offers.
