    Modern technology has made it possible for the discovery of many functional and utility devices like the smartwatch and the smartphone. With all of these revolutions, technology has also made our lives easier, faster, better, and more fun.

    When it comes to the way we communicate, modern technology has had an impressive influence on communication in the 21st century and daily life in general. Very few students and teachers would disagree with this notion. The advancement in technology has made it possible for teachers to impart knowledge to students from any location.

    In the past, there had to be a physical contact for any class to hold. Now, there is no specific need for that as both the tutor and the learner can communicate via different media and platforms such as Skype.

    Digital technology has also changed what people term as ‘media.’ A media company isn’t necessarily a news platform anymore. A media company is now known as a company that helps pass information across the globe. According to Aging in Place, the global active web users now near 3.2 billion people.

    That’s almost half of the world’s population. Around the world, two million smartphones are sold every day. The amount of information being shared on social media networks is phenomenal.

    Social media isn’t the only big statement digital technology has made. Neither is social media the only way technology has had an impact in everyone’s life. There is also the mobile app store which is an online store for various apps of various functions.

    The future of technology is even more interesting than what is happening right now. In few years, we will be talking about driverless cars and robots working in factories. However, let’s focus on highlighting the ways technology has changed our lives.
