Does tech improve education?

The mix of technology in education is a hotly discussed topic of conversion with arguments being made for both sides. Some say tech is a bad thing for education and some believe that it is a good thing.

The team at Absorb believe that technology is a good thing in education if used in the right way and not just replacing a traditional method of teaching or learning just because it is easier. Not everything in life is meant to be easy and we need to work at achieving goals, breaking new boundaries and learning new skills. That is why we use a blended learning approach with our courses. A mix of course material and tutor support to make the most out of every learning opportunity.
