  • 1. HISTORY OF EDUCATION TECHNOLOGYICT Applied to EnglishTeachingAssingment N° 1Student: Daniela MorroneTeacher: Paula LedesmaYear: 2013
  • 2. What is EducationTechnology? Refers to the instructional use of computers, television, and other kinds of electronic hardware and software in educational settings. Technology is neutral; there is nothing inherent about the media that assures learning: a poorly designed computer program is unlikely to advance learning. Integration of technology as a tool to advance learning in the content areas adds to the effectiveness of other resources and teacher created activities.
  • 3. History of ICT - Impact on education technology Mechanical age (1450- 1840) The Pascaline – Charles Babbage. First mechanical adding machine. 1822 - The difference engine. It calculated logarithms automatically. 1830 – The analytic engine. It could carry out different types of calculations. Ada Lovelace: First computer programmer.Impact on education technology1780 – Early public schools adopt the teacher/ manager model.Transfer of learning theories.Instructional media used for presentation of content.
  • 4. History of ICT - Impact on education technology Electromechanical age (1840 – 1940) Knowledge and information converted into electrical impulses. 1905 – School museums managed instructional media. 1910 – Silent films. George Kleine – produced for instructional use.Disadvantages:Teachers used them sparingly: lack of skill in using equipment, inaccessibility, high cost, time consuming.Impact on education technologyVisual education: three- dimensional objects, photographs, silent films.
  • 5. History of ICT - Impact on education technology Electromechanical age: 1894 – first radio developed. Gugliermo Malconi. 1920 – commercial and educational stations. Peak activity between 1925 and 1935.Disadvantages: poor audio reception and cost of equipment; method abandoned when TV became available. 1950s – Instrutional Television. MPATI – employed airplanes to transmit televised lessons.Impact on education technologyAudiovisual Education

  • 9. The Internet 1970 – ARPANET, the forerunner of the Internet goes online. Engelbart invents the mouse, hypertext, groupware, hypermedia, multiple window screens and electronic mail systems. 1990 – Multimedia PCs. Schools are using videodiscs, object-oriented authoring tools, simulations, educational databases and CAI programs delivered on CD-ROM disks. 1995 – The Internet catches on. 1997 – 2007 – The Internet grows and becomes the world’s largest database of information, graphics and streaming video making it an invaluable resource for educators.Impact on education technologyConstructivism: computer-based programs that promote higher-level thinking and encourage collaborative learning.
