Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer in each of the questions.

There has always been a problem with teachers being from a different generation to their pupils, particularly older educators. But the dominance of digital technology has spread that generation gap even wider, as young people become conversant with mobile digital devices, games and social media that didn’t exist when their teachers were growing up. Teachers now face pupils using devices and online systems that they don’t use themselves, and don’t really understand either. The generation gap is more prevalent than ever, but teachers can bridge that gap if they receive the right guidance with appropriate technology. 

Some schools and teachers have particular trouble grasping the role of social media and mobile devices in teenage life. They consider Facebook a threat and warn parents against it at parent-teacher evenings, without realizing that preventing teenagers from using social media like this, or messaging apps such as Snapchat and Instagram, is nearly impossible. Online social media and network gaming are now such an integral part of teenage behavior that any attempt to prize the mobile devices out of the hands of young people is likely to widen the generation gap rather than narrow it. The generation gap in education isn’t just between pupils and teachers - it exists within the staffroom, too. A teaching career can span more than 40 years, and those towards the end of their working life will not have grown up with digital technology, whereas teaching staff in their 20s and 30s could well be “digital natives”. 

Keeping up with the latest online trend is like a dog chasing its tail; every time you think you’ve caught up, kids move on. However, It’s not beneficial to get fixated on how young people are using social networks that are, in the case of Snapchat, hard for the older generation to understand. The key factor to consider is that today’s school students now take for granted that a lot of their communication with their peers will be online, and predominantly using smartphones and other mobile devices. Young people expect their educational experience to be similarly interactive, and partially delivered via these kinds of devices.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer in each of the questions.

Technology continually disrupts almost every area of our lives, resulting in constant shifts across all segments of our society. The education sector is no exception. In fact, the nature of its target audience - mostly young and highly connected - means that the sector must adapt to accommodate their expectations. Most students have grown up online and will expect the same levels of technology in their learning environments as in their day to day lives. 

Creating an effective digital learning environment is not just about offering convenience and familiarity to students, however. The consequences for their futures if we don’t keep pace are manifold and damaging. Lack of opportunity is one major threat, because limited or no access to technology will result in a greater divide between certain categories of students. Crucially, students’ potential success could be severely compromised by lack of technical proficiency. As a minimum, employers want graduates who are adept at using technology to connect, communicate, and collaborate with workplace technology.

Yet with the right technology platform, solutions and industry partners, universities are starting to create next generation learning environments that effectively prepare students for the future by offering access to the tools they need while also providing a fulfilling learning experience. Digital technology can supply the framework to support new learning approaches that engage students, bolster new revenue streams, cut operational costs and preserve highly valued school and university brands and reputations. For example, the ability to connect with outside experts or even lecturers with other schools and universities could increase the number of courses offered and attract more students. 

For both students and teachers, ubiquitous connectivity facilitates greater collaboration, enabling people to develop increasingly connected communities in their chosen fields. Being more available to students can also empower teachers to deliver more innovative, exciting lectures, whether face-to-face or online, while offering more personalised feedback and mentoring. It’s now easier for students to engage on their own terms and no longer having to travel across campus for every single meeting makes it easier for leaders and faculty members to work together, too. 

Effective digital transformation isn’t just about technology, though. It requires a willingness to adopt technology in new ways, beyond administrative process. It must be continual and evolutionary in order to enhance teaching and learning and improve efficiency. It also necessitates collaborative working; vision and leadership; culture; process and methodology - and the technology itself.

63. Which of the following could be the best title of the passage?

A. Digital Evolution Creates a New Approach to Learning.

B. How do you Define Digital Learning?

C. Web-based Learning can Nurture Star Employees.

D. Worrying over an E-learning Pigeonhole.

64. According to paragraph 1, why must education segments adapt to technology-oriented changes?

A. to ensure the connectivity between the students and online classes.

B. to live up to the parents’ expectations of the online class standard.

C. to meet the requirements of the students having grown up online.

D. to stimulate high-tech learning among the tech-savvy generation.

65. The word “compromised” in paragraph 2 is CLOSEST in meaning to __________.

A. demotivated B. reinforced C. transferred D. declined

66. What does the word “they” in paragraph 3 refer to?

A. universities B. environments C. graduates D. students

67. According to paragraph 3, which of the following is NOT MENTIONED as one of the advantages of electronic learning?

A. Digital learning showcases the innovative and receptive image of the schools.

B. Adaptive learning enables students to cut down on travel time and cost.

C. High-tech learning allows easier control on the information from industry partners.

D. E-learning creates new approaches to market lectures and learning experiences.

B. Recruiters seek for alumni who are competent at using technology in their work.

C. Learning is still restricted within the walls of a classroom.
