THE ROLES AND FUNCTIONS OF
EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY IN THE 21st CENTURY
Our world is changing, and in order to prepare our children for this
new world we need to change the way we educate them. In the 21st
century educators must create a curriculum that will help students
connect with the world and understand the issues that our world
Schools in the 21st century will become nerve centers, a place for
teachers and students to connect with those around them and their
community. Teachers in this new environment will become less
instructors and more orchestrators of information, giving children the
ability to turn knowledge into wisdom.
The role of technology in the classroom is ever changing.
Those who utilize and embrace the use of technology in
the classroom are better prepared to serve the next
generation of learners.
The role of technology is helping educators promote and
teach the 4 C's (Critical thinking, collaboration,
communication, and creativity) of 21st Century Learning.

they are out of their educational career and serve our

they will need to connect the new information with the
knowledge they already have and apply it to solving the
problem at hand.
They engage in many different types of hands-on
activities, as well as demonstrate learning in many
different ways. Learning is about discovery, not the
memorization of facts.
EDUCATION SHOULD BE COLLABORATIVE
Students must learn how to collaborate with others.
Students should be encouraged to work together to
discover information, piece it together, and construct
Students should learn how to recognize the different
strengths and talents each person can bring to a project,
and change roles depending on those attributes.
Collaboration should also be dynamic.
LEARNING SHOULD HAVE CONTEXT
Students are encouraged to learn in different ways, the
teacher still provides guidance as to the skills that need
to be acquired.
The teacher can make a point of helping students to
understand how the skills they are building can be
applied in their lives.

A filmstrip is a series of pictures on one continuous piece of
film. Although filmstrips lose the flexibility of slide sets (which
can easily be rearranged for different purposes), they do have
some real advantages. Filmstrips can be carefully sequenced
and the sequence will remain unchanged no matter who uses
the strip. Once a filmstrip has been threaded properly, all the
frames will appear in proper position. Filmstrips are compact,
and one small can will hold the equivalent of several dozen
slides. The cans are convenient for storage and mailing.
Filmstrips on nearly every subject are available from
commercial suppliers; and, in many countries, are available
through central agencies such as the ministries of agriculture,
education or health.
Most commercial filmstrips are made with a
single-frame camera. However, double-frame
filmstrips can be made by using a double-frame
camera. The diagrams show examples of both
kinds. Which is used depends on the kind of
camera and projection equipment available.
