      Presentation outline
    • “ The quality of education is not to be measured by its length and breadth but only by its depth” -Vinoba Bhave
      • For many years, teachers taught and students were responsible for learning the material.
      • It was the student’s responsibility to acquire the knowledge for success.
      • The primary concern of the teacher was to impart the knowledge.
      Teacher Centered Philosophy
      • Student learning is the primary goal of the teacher as opposed to teaching.
      • The teacher must motivate the students to learn, participate, critically think and successfully perform in tests.
      Learner centered philosophy
    • Student- centered Flexible Learning
      • Learning is a process in which four components interact :
      • (1) the teacher,
      • (2) the student,
      • (3) curriculum content and goals, (4) instructional materials and infrastructure
      Process of Learning
    • Materials Teachers Learners Teaching / Learning Materials
      • Learning by Objectives
      • Learning through Experience
      • Learning by Example
      • Learning by Discovery
      • Learning to learn
      Learning Modes
      • ICT in education is a much needed vehicle of achieving the modern philosophy of education whereby a student can decide on: 
        • WHAT he learns 
        • WHEN he learns 
        • WHERE he learns, and 
        • HOW he learns 
      The modern philosophy of education
      • “ Technology will not have a significant impact on student learning until teachers change the way they teach.” Larry Cuban, 1986
      • Technology is continuously changing . It is an ongoing process. It demands continual learning.
      • Change is not always easy.
      • The initial human reaction to change is resistance. Resistance makes for slow change.
      • Change is inevitable .
      • Change led to progress .
      • The acceptance of change is a major requirement for technology integration.
      Technology integration
      • Technology is revolutionizing the way we think, work, and play.
      • Technology enables teachers to provide multiple representations of content (images, graphs, diagrams, tables) and multiple options for expression ( multimedia, power point).
      • Computer technology changes traditional classroom instructional techniques.
      • Computers enable students to process the information via multiple intelligences .
      Why do we need technology integration?
      • Technology integration helps to achieve 21st Century Skills in students . They are:
      • Personal and social responsibility.
      • Planning, critical thinking , reasoning, and creativity .
      • Strong communication skills , both for interpersonal and presentation needs.
      • Visualizing and decision-making.
      • Knowing how and when to use technology and choosing the most appropriate tool for the task.
      Technology integration: Reasons
      • Technology helps change the student/teacher roles and relationships .
      • Technology cannot teach; only teachers can teach.
      • Technology can enhance the teaching- learning process.
      Technology can do..
    • What is Technology integration?
      • Technology integration is the use of technology resources -- computers, Internet, e-mail, digital cameras, CD-ROMs, software applications, electronic publications, etc. -- in daily classroom practices, and in the management of a College.
    • How to use Information technologies effectively ?
      • Using computer-based services to search for and find relevant information in a range of contexts.
      • using a variety of media to retrieve information.
      • Decoding information in variety of forms- written, statistical and graphic.
    • Information literacy
      • Using computer based services to write, analyze, present and communicate information;
      • Using information technologies to create, to share and to store knowledge .
      • The literature generally describes 3 major instructional use of computer based technologies:
      • Learning from the Technology
      • Learning about the Technology
      • Learning with the Technology.
      Instructional use of Computer based Technology
      • According to Mr. Kofi Annan , Secretary-General of the United Nations, Information and Communication Technology has transformed education.
      • ICTs provide an array of powerful tools that may help in transforming the present isolated teacher-centered and text - bound classrooms into rich, student – focused, interactive knowledge environment.
    • Food for thought
      • “ Any technology which increase the rate of learning would enable the teacher to teach less and the learner to learn more ”
    • Information and Communication technology
      • Information technology (IT) is defined as the study or use of electronic equipments, especially computers for storing, analysing and sending out information.
      • Communication technology is the process of sending, receiving and exchanging information.
      • ICT is a generic term referring to technologies, which are being used for collecting, storing, editing and passing on information in various forms (SER,1997)

      • motivation – graphics serve to arouse curiosity
      • attention-gaining – graphics serve to focus the learner’s attention on the instruction
      • presentation – graphics serve to "demonstrate or elaborate a lesson concept" (p.50)
      • practice – graphics serve to provide visual feedback
    • A dual coding theory of learning from visual and verbal materials. (Mayer, 1993)   
    • Framework of Mayer (1993)
      • This framework postulates the formation of three types of mental "connections":   
      • 1) visual material is used to mentally form a internal visual representation; 
      • 2) verbal material is used to form a verbal representation, thus forming a verbal representational connection;
      • 3) the learner builds referential connections between the visual representation and verbal representation.
