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.

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 student. 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 


Trang 6/8 - Mã đề thi 803 

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.
