ICT Enabled Teaching


Published on

This is intended to enable all teachers to utilise the newest technological developments in the field of Information and Computer Technology. This can help them derive the maximum out of their teaching endeavours. Students are thus benefitted by better knowledge, with great pleasure and ease. The skill to use the thus gained knowledge also can be developed.

ICT Enabled Teaching

  1. 1. Babu AppatInstitute of Engineering and Technology, University of Calicut http://www.thepleasuresofteaching.webs.com/
  2. 2. If I cant Learn the way YouTeach Can you Teach me the way I Can Learn? I Can Learn?
  3. 3.  To identify the learning styles of the students. To design ICT enabled strategies for teaching the subjects catering to the learning styles of students You have not Taught anything If the students have not learned anything. To study the attitude of students towards LEARNING after the implementation of designed strategies.
  4. 4.  The studies of Know and Jones (1995), Pamela Sims (1997), Alkesh Patel (2000), Schroder et al. (2002) revealed that students have different learning styles. A teacher has to identify these different learning styles. Thus, Teachers must use variety of techniques to satisfy the needs of all learners. According to Keefe (1979), Reid (1987), Riding & Smith (1992), S. Montgomery et al. (1996), Pat Wayman (2003) learning styles could be used to predict what kind of instructional strategies or methods would be most effective for a given task. They further concluded that if students’ styles of learning are accommodated, it can result in improved achievement and positive attitude towards the subject.
  5. 5.  Susan Montgomery (1994), Graff (1999), N. Bagraktarevic et al. (2002), S.J. Rathod (2004) emphasized use of computer software, multimedia , hypermedia and other technology (ICT) to match teaching and learning styles in multi faceted settings of the classroom The studies of Okebukola (1986), Felder. R. et al. (1990), Foriska (1992), Felder.R. (1993), Tobias (1993) revealed that the use of varied instructional strategies according to students learning styles in science classroom results in higher achievement and positive attitude towards the science.
  6. 6. The present study was developmental cumexperimental in nature. Different strategies weredecided for broad spectrum of students learningstyles. Based on these strategies an interventionprogram in the form of designed lesson plan wasused for the treatment of experimental group. Pre-Test Treatment Post-test Group 1 ……………. X O Group 2 ……………. …………… O
  7. 7. Phases of the Study1. The investigator used Index of learning Styles prepared by the investigator identified learning styles profiles of the students.2. The investigator keeping in mind learning styles profiles of the class designed ICT enabled teaching strategies.3. From the two sections of the Engineering (B Tech), and School of Health Science (PG) and Teachers of these institutions4. Various ICT Enabled tools were implemented; Responses of Teachers and students were noted, data collected and analysed.5. After the treatment, post-test was administered on the experimental and control groups. The attitude scale was administered on experimental group alone. Collected data were analyzed to study the effectiveness of the strategies.
  8. 8. The population of the present study was the students and teachers of various departments and affiliated colleges University of Calicut. The students Institute of Engineering Technology,School of Health Sciences, Centre for Health Sciences,Computer Centre, University of Calicut, Department ofComputer Science, University of Calicut etc also been selected and used for the purpose. A-View, wiziq, figs, wiki educator, blogger,co sribbed.com, youtube.com, dailymotion.com,piratebay.co, moodle, webs, weebly etc also has been used.
  9. 9. Hypotheses
  10. 10. For the present study, the following tools wereused for different purposes during the study. • Index of Learning Styles (ILS) • Science Attitude Scale (SAS) • Achievement Test Data CollectionThe data were collected in three phases. • Pre-intervention phase • Intervention phase • Post intervention phase
  11. 11. Standardised Statistical tools has been resorted as and when needed.
  12. 12. A. Learning Styles of the Students The learning style of the Engineering (B-Tech) and Health Sciences students has been changed for the better. Quality of technical information they possess has been improved Their listening span has been bettered Retention capacity has been bettered Content quantity has also been improved Overall approach to learning has also been bettered. The same result can be expected from other students too.
  13. 13.  61% of students process new information in an active manner. More than half of the class finds it hard to learn through the lecture method, as they need to actively process new material. The majority of the students (80%) demonstrated a global preference in understanding new material . 13% of them have strong or very strong preference for global understanding.
  14. 14. Effectiveness of Designed ICT Enabled Teaching Strategies on Scholastic Achievement. Effectiveness of Designed Teaching Strategies in Terms of Attitude towards Learning.
  15. 15.  The present study has many implications in the field of Education. Due to the dominance of lecture based traditional instruction in teaching, many students are loosing their interest in studies. The present study will be helpful to all those students whose learning styles do not match with their instructors teaching styles. Moreover, it will help to increase students’ Scholastic Achievement. The results of the study will inspire all the teachers to use these types of Strategies in their routine teaching. It is proved that project based learning using ICT has the potential to cater diverse needs of learners. Therefore, Science and Technology teachers especially will use more and more projects for instruction. It is proved that integration of technology, particularly multimedia-based technology in the classroom teaching helped to cater different learners. Thus, teachers will inspire to use technology for their subject teaching. The role of the teacher will shift from instructor to facilitator. Students will be active partners in the whole teaching-learning process.
  16. 16. These types of strategies can be used for all subjects and for all levels ofeducation. Thereby improved achievement and positive attitude towardsthe subject. The concept of learning styles should be included in thesyllabus of teacher education. The knowledge of learning styles will helptrainee teachers to understand the learners in a better way. The learningstyles profile of the students should be kept in the mind while designingsessions plan during practice teaching.Various learning styles inventories are used to determine the learningstyles of an individual or group of students. Most of the tools are in Englishlanguage. The investigator prepared the learning styles inventory (ILS) inlocal language Gujarati. It will be very useful to local school teacher toidentify the learning styles profile of their students. Moreover, ScienceAttitude Scale (SAS) prepared by the investigator can be utilized tomeasure students’ attitude towards the Science subject.The study will be helpful to state government during their in-service trainingprograms to realize their quality education goal. Ultimately, it can be helpfulto achieve the target of universalization of quality education.
