Benefits of technology education in high school

Technology education, aka “tech ed” or “ed tech” helps interested high school students prepare for a career in any number of technology-related fields.

In a traditional brick-and-mortar school, technology in the classroom is often seen as an unwelcome distraction. With online learning, tech-driven students are encouraged to explore and develop their interests in computer science and information technology.

The benefits of technology education starting in grades 9-12 are many:

Digital literacy is an absolute must for an ever-increasing segment of the job market. Knowing how to program, design websites and use professional computer-based tools gives high school students an advantage in practically any field they feel drawn to after graduation.

Students are more engaged in studies when they’re interested. If your child loves technology, encouraging them to learn more about it while earning high school credit at the same time just makes sense.

Technology education is active learning. Students taking information technology and computer classes solve problems, develop valuable skills and complete creative projects.
