IV. READING

Read the passage and then decide whether the sentences are True (T) or False (F).

The impact that technology has had on today’s schools has been quite significant. This widespread adoption of technology has completely changed how teachers teach and students learn. Teachers are learning how to teach with emerging technologies (tablets, iPads, Smart Boards, digital cameras, computers), while students are using advanced technology to shape the way they learn.

According to a study by IT Trade Association CompTIA, students prefer technology because they believe that it makes learning more interesting and fun. They especially like laptops and tablets. Subjects that students find challenging or boring can become more interesting with virtual lessons, through a video, or when using a tablet. Results from another study even shows that technology indeed helps students remember what they learn. In this study, eighteen 2nd grade students were challenged to complete a Power Point project about an animal. Sixteen out of the eighteen students remembered more facts about the animal after completing the presentation.

Read the following passage and choose the option (A, B, C or D) that best answers each of the questions below.

As the name implies green technology is the one that has a "green" purpose. Green inventions are environmentally friendly inventions that often involve: energy efficiency, recycling, safety and health concerns, renewable resources, and more.

One of the best known examples of green technology would be the solar cell. A solar cell directly converts the energy in light into electrical energy. Generating electricity from solar energy means less consumption of fossil fuels, reducing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Another simple invention that can be considered green is the reusable water bottle. Drinking lots of water is healthy. Reducing plastic waste is great for the environment. Hence, trendy reusable water bottles that you can refill yourself are health-promoting, eco-friendly, and green.

Inventors should know that green inventions and clean technologies are good business. These are fast growing markets with growing profits. Consumers should know that buying green inventions can reduce your energy bill and that green inventions are often safer and healthier products.
