THE STUDENTI am Antonio Delgado, a 3rd Year student taking up Bachelor in Secondary Education (Major in English) at General de Jesus College.
THE STUDENTEducational Technology or Ed Tech is part of our curriculum.
THE STUDENTThis portfolio summarizes my track of development through the subject.
ED TECH IN A NUT SHELLEducational technology as a subject made me aware of the use of technology tools in instruction ranging from the traditional to the modern.In essence, Ed Tech infused technology in our training as student-teachers to allow us to cope with today’s technology.
Dale’s Cone of Experiences One of the first things that I learned in Educational Technology is that lecture copying is not the only learning experience available.
Dale’s Cone of Experiences The cone of experience is a visual model meant to summarize dale’s classification system for varied types of learning experience.
Dale’s Cone of Experiences The first level of experience are direct experiences which facilitates learning by doing. Beginners usually need this type of learning experience.
Dale’s Cone of ExperiencesContrived experiences, meanwhile, are edited copies of reality such as the globe in the picture.Okay, maybe we can’t use that one inside the room.
Dale’s Cone of Experiences Dramatized experiences are simulated experiences such as tableau, role playing, and using puppets.
Dale’s Cone of Experiences Earthquake drills may be said to fall under dramatized experiences. Through these, students are able to do simulations of actual experiences which are otherwise hard to bring inside the classroom.
Dale’s Cone of ExperiencesDemonstration is the next level of experience. It is usually utilized in science classes.
Dale’s Cone of Experiences Field trips allow the students to see first hand the places and objects that are discussed in the classroom.
Dale’s Cone of ExperiencesExhibits such as those we saw at the National Museum allow us a glimpse of actual artifacts.
Dale’s Cone of Experiences The television and motion pictures has aided educational technology by allowing long- distance education.
Dale’s Cone of Experiences And of course, we shouldn’t forget about still pictures, visual symbols and verbal symbols.
What’s wrong with using the chalkboard?Why do we need varied learning experiences in the first place, when there is always the good old blackboard that is readily available in the classroom?Nothing, it’s just that…
The Learning PyramidWhile still readily available, the chalkboard involves mainly verbal symbols, of which according to research, only 10% is retained by students.
Utilizing the SensesAnd that is why we have to involve as many of the five senses (as possible) to facilitate more retention of concepts learned.
LEARNING THROUGH ED TECH 1 AND 2I definitely learned a lot in our Educational Technology subjects.But Ed Tech is not all about the technological gadgets and their use as instructional aids.In the duration of the course, we also had to go through both traditional and modern avenues of learning.
Reporting As students aiming to become future teachers, we of course had to go through reporting in our Ed Tech subjects.
Reporting We were able to use not only traditional visual aids in our reports, but also modern ways of presentation such as the PowerPoint and the DLP.
Of course, one cannot simply do away with written assignments and reflection papers.
Research Papers In Ed Tech, we also had to submit research papers as requirements. It was stressed that we not only use web sources but published books as well.
Research Papers Some of the research papers were submitted individually, while some were done by group to facilitate collaborative learning.
DemonstrationsAnd of course, demonstrations.
ActivitiesIn our reports and demonstrations, we were able to have activities that utilized both traditional and modern methods and materials.
A game that utilizes traditional materials.
A game that utilizes modern technology.
Learning by FeedbackSometimes we have to learn by feedback, such as the instance when our group used a music video in our demo.
Learning by FeedbackOur teacher reminded us that instructional materials are utilized for a purpose. The teacher suggested that we first prepare our students for our materials beforehand.
Learning by Feedback Or that time when our slideshow presentation lacked an outline or flow of presentation. Sometimes, we do have to learn by our mistakes.
THE STUDENT AFTER ED TECHAlready, we are applying what we have learned in Ed Tech to our activities in the other subjects.
The use of computer software makes presentations such as storytelling more interesting.
THE STUDENT AFTER ED TECHLearning about the varied learning experiences at the disposal of the teacher and being aware of the technological innovations available for instruction definitely left its mark on me.Most of all, I learned that we use instructional aids to help in attaining our teaching objectives and not just for the sake of having them.
