According to the United Nations, every child is entitled to quality and accessible education equipped with skills useful for their future development. For a child to enjoy quality education regarding the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, technology is necessary. Technology in education has helped solve many problems, making life-learning processes enjoyable and exciting for every child to learn. The adoption of technology in education comes with many advantages embedded in improving communication and research.
