Why use ILT? 15 March 2005 Why do we need e-learning?22. At any stage of learning, ICT could re-engage the unmotivated learner, and bring anauthentic and challenging task within their grasp.Or ICT could make the difference between the boredom of the learner who’s always leftbehind, and the discovery that they can find their own way to progress.When you get stuck you can get onto the website and get on with it without waiting for the next lessonto come along. You don’t get left behind. You can keep up with everybody. [Student at The CornwallisSchool]25. Of course, the critics of ICT could reasonably argue that the teacher who makes hisor her subject come alive for their class is more effective than a computer programmethat is merely an electronic page-turner. And the technology is still not perfect: acomputer crash doesn’t help any lesson.26. But we do not argue for a complete switch to new technology. Traditional teachingmethods and e-learning can and should complement each other. The new technologies arecapable of creating real energy and excitement for all age groups. Used well, they shouldmotivate, personalise, and stretch.
Why use ILT?Handbook for inspecting collegesPost-compulsory June 2005 HMI 2441E-learning192. E-learning is learning facilitated and supported through the use of ICT. Itmay involve the use of computers, interactive whiteboards, digital cameras, theinternet, the college intranet, virtual learning environments and electroniccommunication tools such as email, discussion boards, chat facilities and videoconferencing. E-learning should form part of the overall teaching and learningstrategy for each course. There should be appropriate references to e-learningin schemes of work, lesson plans, assignments, course reviews and staffdevelopment plans. An overall strategy for e-learning should be supported bysenior managers. Effective e-learning should:• improve learners’ understanding of topics or activities that are part oftheir academic or vocational programme• improve their skills and their knowledge of the technology being used• help to maintain their interest in their programme. 193. In particular, inspectors will evaluate whether: • staff and learners have the relevant IT skills to make good use of elearning facilities • there are adequate resources for e-learning • the quality and effectiveness of e-learning is well monitored • there are appropriate opportunities for learners to use e-learning facilities outside scheduled lessons.
Why use ILT? The reasons•Because the future is hereICT is the learning and teaching tool of the 21st century. By teaching pupils using ICT, yourenot only helping them learn better; youre preparing them for a workplace – a world – alreadydominated by the computer. This is todays technology, not tomorrows.•Because pupils love it!Incorporating ICT and multimedia resources into your lessons is a great way to reach your pupils– using technologies, devices and applications that they already love to use in the rest of theirlives.•Because it helps develop teaching professionals tooTeaching using ICT offers you the chance to inject new passion into your subject, to adopt freshapproaches to familiar material, and to develop new skills to expand your own career potential.•Because it saves time and energyAccording to the 2003 ICT in School survey, the majority of Government-funded schools reportthat ICT helps reduce teacher workload in terms of lesson preparation, planning andassessment.Oh! And because its fun…
Why use ILT? The researchA major DfES study of the impact of ICT on educational attainment in England hasfound that ICT has been found to be positively associated with improvement insubject-based learning in several areas.High ICT use – in or out of school – is credited with several statistically significantimprovements. For instance:in English at KS2, high ICT users outperform low ICT users in National Tests by anaverage of 3.12 marksin Science at KS4, high ICT users outperform low ICT users by an average of 0.56 ofa GCSE gradein Design & Technology at KS4, high ICT users outperform low ICT users by anaverage of 0.41 of a GCSE gradeSource:These figures come from ImpaCT2 study, DfES, 2002.Download a summary of the Impact 2 report here
But first, let’s look at some…TERMINOLOGY ILTInformation Learning Technology What’s that then???
Information Learning TechnologyPuts the Learning into IT ILTIT = Word-processing IT Spreadsheets ICT DatabasesICT = All above + Internet (E-mail; World Wide Web)Clear? = ‘Communication’
ILT E-Learning ICT IT4 IT: refers to the hardware, software and skills that surround a single stand alone computer.4 ICT: refers to connecting together IT equipment to communicate via networks.4 E-learning: Refers to those aspects of ILT, which directly support effective learning and teaching. This can take many forms. 4 From the introduction of ILT elements into traditional teaching (PowerPoint presentations replacing OHP slides for example) through to fully online programmes delivered to remote locations with minimal levels of tutor intervention.4 ILT: is defined as the application of IT/ICT to deliver and manage learning within education.
