I was surprised the difference between education of this university and education of my high school after entering this university. Also, I realized an advantage and a disadvantage of ICT after using ICT for study.
When I study and do assignments, I must use ICT. However, I often have trouble with my computer such as communication failure and lack of understanding of how to use. It is difficult to use ICT well, because when I was a high school student, I usually used notebooks and textbooks, and I used ICT just a little. So, I was surprised the difference between education of this university and education of my high school.
After I use ICT in class, I realized an advantage of ICT. By using ICT, asynchronous learning can be done in online classes, so ICT enable learners who cannot attend classes at particular time to learn consistently. I think it is essential for learners to match individual needs.
However, I realized a disadvantage of ICT. It is that the difference of digital divide got bigger through online class. For example, some people can use computers well, but others cannot. People who are good at using computers can lead in them, and people who are not can be at a disadvantage.
Therefore, I think it is important to use ICT for study with understanding some advantages and disadvantages of ICT. I want to try to use ICT well in order to teach with using advantages of ICT for students in the future.
