2.1. The three disadvantages of using technology in teaching and learning can be: (i) Increased Distractions: With the availability of numerous games, sites, and social media platforms, technology often becomes more of a distraction than a learning tool. (ii) Over-reliance on Technology: Students may become over-dependent on technology, losing their critical thinking and problem-solving skills. (iii) Equity Issues: Not all students have equal access to technology, which can deepen the socioeconomic divide in education. 2.2. Addressing these disadvantages: (i) To tackle increased distractions, educators can employ multiple classroom management strategies. This may include implementing strict regulations on the use of distracting apps or websites during class hours and focusing on engaging teaching methods that keep students absorbed. (ii) With regards to over-reliance on technology, one solution could be to maintain a balanced mix of traditional and technological teaching. Furthermore, one can design tasks and assignments that require critical thinking and creativity, not just technologically-driven tasks. (iii) Addressing equity issues may be challenging, but schools can work towards providing digital resources for all students. This could involve creating policies that enable low-income students to have access to necessary technology for learning. Government agencies and NGOs could also be involved in initiatives that aim to reduce the digital divide.
