Application of technology in teaching and learning at the University - Opportunities and challenges for lecturers and students in Vietnam today
Keywords:technology, lecturer, student
Vietnam is just one of several countries that have embraced the use of technological innovations in its classroom practices. From the start of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 until the present day, lecturers at all levels have increasingly made use of technology in the classroom. The best way to apply the policy of isolation during the Covid-19 pandemic while maintaining communication and university operations is through the use of technology in education, most notably online learning. The university's output standards, program structure, and knowledge base have all been guaranteed by the growth of online education. Important university events can also be coordinated online, ensuring that they go off without a hitch. For lecturers, incorporating technological tools into the classroom is a radical departure from the approaches they have relied on in the past. Students now have access to more resources, more recent information, and more efficient ways to utilize lecture content, thanks to the widespread adoption of technology in the classroom. The article employs a document-analysis methodology to examine the advantages and disadvantages of employing technology in the classroom from the perspectives of both instructors and their students.
