Importance of Samsung galaxy grand 2
As a very proud owner of Samsung galaxy grand 2 you could rave all day about the importance of your Samsung galaxy grand 2. Because Samsung galaxy grand 2 keeps you in contact wherever you go, which gives you peace of mind.
The ability to download ‘apps’ to Samsung galaxy grand 2 can also make it not only personalized, but useful for people in most situations. From word processing software to a program that keeps an eye on the stock market, the range of potential uses can just not be argued with. For example, instead of waking up tired and grumpy, you can use an advanced alarm clock to measure your sleeping patterns which also wakes you up when you are sleeping at your lightest. Not entirely necessary, but this could still be beneficial to anybody!
So if this level of technology can benefit from city workers to journalists, why can it not be taken advantage of at school? I have numerously thought to myself that if it happens that I travel out of Nigeria to a French or Spanish speaking countries and I’m to attend the language school to be able to learn those languages and it is accepted for students to use phone such as Samsung galaxy grand 2 which offers translator , My learning could be improved. Instead of taking out a dictionary, I Can simply use the translator, and instead of trawling through books for a piece of literature, i can find the books online and be directed to a specific word, and so on. The fact is that these phones are really just computers, yet I am unaware of a school that is reluctant to allow the use of these.
I’m not naïve; firstly not everybody can afford Samsung galaxy grand 2 and secondly, there are bound to be people who will take advantage. But as technology becomes cheaper, more people will invest in this equipment, and surely the people who take advantage of the leniency would use their Samsung galaxy grand 2 regardless of new measures?
Schools themselves are modernizing greatly. Osun state in Nigeria , for instance, is in the process of becoming an academy. And I was impressed with the new technology being considered. Ideas such as giving each student a tablet (Opon Imo) and registering attendance online are being planned already. I think it is fantastic that schools are finally ‘getting with the times’ and are understanding the importance of ICT in education! Eventually I hope Android phones will be looked upon in a much more reasonable way and take a more important role in education.
