My Portfolio in EdTech 2

  1. 1. My Portfolio in Educational Technology 2 By: Florence April L. Fernandez And Elbie U. Urdelas
  2. 2. A Third year student of Bachelor of Elementary Education at Palawan State University, Brookyue’s Point Campus, Pangobilian Brooke’s Point, Palawan. I am 27 years old, a married woman. Live happily with my loving husband and sweet only son. Some of my friends call me.. Flo or BB.. Florence April L. Fernandez
  3. 3. Elbie U. Urdelas I was born thirty tree years ago in Rio tuba, Bataraza, Palawan. I have a very large family I am single mommy I have two daughter for now I'm studying at Palawan State University Brooke’s point Palawan taking up Batchelor Education third year student.
  4. 4.  Educational technology, sometimes shortened to EduTech or EdTech, is a wide field. Therefore, one can find many definitions, some of which are conflicting. Educational technology as an academic field can be considered either as a design science or as a collection of different research interests addressing fundamental issues of learning, teaching and social organization. Educational technology as practice refers to any form of teaching and learning that makes use of technology.
  5. 5.  1. Use of technology is principled: Technology means the systematic application of scientific knowledge to practical tasks. Therefore, educational technology is based on theoretical knowledge drawn from different disciplines (communication, education, psychology, sociology, philosophy, artificial intelligence, computer science, etc.) plus experiential knowledge drawn from educational practice.  2. Educational technology aims to
  7. 7. Educational Technology, for me is very much appreciated. Though, we knew that everything in this world have an advantages and disadvantages. But we as a human we have to follow or go to the flow of civilizations. Even farmers or carpenters needs to be educated to use modern facilities and changes to make more products, to make the
  8. 8.  How can we imagine a career women who don't even know how to use a semi auto washing machine? At my stage, as a Mommy and a student, its very important for me using a new households technology like washing machine, stoves, refrigerator, etc. Very important to me to manage my time to my kids responsibilities while studying and helping to my husband for the sake of our family future. So, for me, Educational Technology, is very important and helpful, it is like a gadgets or computers that needs to
  9. 9. We knew that Filipino workers are highly in demand globally, (whatever skills, aspect or whatever degree they've finished), having a knowledge or being educated technologically is an advantage and are very competitive, so learning and education about technologies give us a big help not only to ourselves but also to country. We need to be frank that as a citizen we have to moving on about the old one, but we don't need to just keep it away to our mind, what I mean is we took ideas from old times practiced, we just need to enhance, develop and improve the new style, new technology
  10. 10. Systematic approach to teaching
  11. 11. As depicted in the chart, the focus of systematic instructional planning is the student. Instruction begins with the definition of instructional objectives that consider the students’ needs, interest, and readiness. On the basis of this objective, the teacher selects the appropriate teaching methods to be used and, in turn, based on the teaching method selected, the appropriate learning experiences and appropriate materials, equipment and facilities will also be selected.
  12. 12.  The use of learning materials, equipment and facilities necessitates assigning the personnel to assist the teacher and defining the role of any personnel involved in the preparation, setting and returning of this learning resources. (in some school settings , there is a custodian/ librarian who takes care of the learning resources and / or technician who operates the equipment while teacher facilitates.) the effective use of learning resources is dependent in the expertise of the teacher, motivation of level or responsiveness, and the involvement of the students in the learning process. With the instructional objectives in mind, the teacher implements planned instructions with the use of the selective teaching method, learning activities, and learning materials with the help of other personnel whose role has been defined by the teacher.
  13. 13. Will the teacher use direct instruction or indirect instruction? Will he /she teach using the deductive or inductive approach? It depends on his / her instructional objectives, nature of the subject matter, and readiness of student and the expertise of the teacher himself or herself.
  14. 14. Examples of learning activities that the teacher can choose from, depending on his/her instructional objectives, nature of the lesson content, readiness of the student are :
  15. 15. Reading Writing Interviewing reporting or doing presentation Discussing
  16. 16. Thinking Reflecting Dramatizing Visualizing creating judging and evaluating.
  17. 17. Some examples of learning resources for instructional use are :
  18. 18. Textbooks Workbooks programmed materials Computer television programs  flat pictures  slides and transparencies  maps
  19. 19. Charts Cartoons Posters Models mock ups Flannel board materials chalk boards real objects and the like.
  20. 20. After instructions, teacher evaluates the outcome of instruction. From the evaluation results, teacher comes to know if the instructional objective was attained. If the instructional objective was attained, teacher proceeds to the next lesson going through the same cycle once more. If instructional objectives was not attained ,
  21. 21. then teacher diagnoses was not learned and finds out why it was not learned in order to introduced a remedial measure for improved student performance and attainment of instructional
  22. 22.  Educational Technology has absolutely revolutionized the entire education system. Until recently, the teachers used to be the sole interpreter of knowledge to the learners and the textbooks the sole resource. Educational technology has affected the conventional roles and it has opened up the new areas of teacher functions such as management of resources and management of learning. Today, teachers have a range of media to assist and supplement the instructional work.
  23. 23.  Teachers can even specify the learning intentions, select the topic, identify the stimulus situation, determine media, manage teaching and finally conduct evaluation and modify the instructions in the light of evaluation results.  Educational process can’t proceed systematically without the help of educational technology. Every aspect of educational system is fully enlightened with educational technology.
  24. 24. 1. Educational technology has provided a scientific base to the educational theory and practice. It has transformed a passive classroom to an active and interactive classroom, with audio- visuals, charts and models, smart classrooms and e-learning room which has drastically motivated and increased the attention level of the students.
  25. 25. 2. The introduction of educational technology has modernised the teaching-learning climate of the educational institutions. The learners to be exposed to professionally designed programmes on video or computers.
  26. 26. 3. Educational technology has helped and supplemented the teachers in their instructional programmes through the structured lessons for remedial, enrichment or drill purposes. The learners get training for self instruction and teachers are relieved of the burden of routine repetition for exercise and revision purposes.
  27. 27. 4. Through a systematic organisation of content and instructional materials, educational technology has provided well-integrated structured materials for teachers thus saving a lot of their time which in turn may be utilized for creative work and quality improvement.
  28. 28. 5. The training and use of educational technology contributes towards the professional growth of teachers. It equips them in the use of scientific methods for solving educational and administrative problems. It adds to the teaching competence of teachers and inculcates a scientific outlook and scientific temper in teachers and students.
  29. 29. 6. Educational technology has improved the teaching-learning process and made it more effective and process oriented. Television, Radio, V.C.R, Computers and LCD projectors etc. have enriched and facilitated effective transmission of knowledge.
  30. 30. 7. Educational technology has not only maintained the standards of education but also improved the ways of teaching by giving it Teaching Aids and Programmed Instructional Material.
  31. 31. 8. Mechanism of feedback devices for modification of teaching-learning behaviour have produced effective teachers in the teacher-training institutes.
  32. 32. 9. Students who appear for higher or competitive examinations have been benefitted by educational programmes on T.V, Radio and Internet.
  33. 33. 10. Educational technology has opened up new fields of educational researches in the field of examination process, evaluation and classroom-teaching.
  34. 34. 11. Educational technology has provided practices and strategies that help teachers to teach according to individual differences of learners.
  35. 35. 12. Educational technology has provided scientific foundation to education through the theories of learning and intelligence.
  36. 36. Thus educational technology is required in each and every aspect of teaching learning process. Educational technology serves all the purposes for modern education. Education today can’t go far without the help of educational technology. The innovations of technology in the field of education have done wonders to educational process. It has not only maintained the structure but also improved the nature of the educational process.
  37. 37. Roles of technology in education
  38. 38. Methods used within the classroom not only need to keep evolving, but also harness the effects of the digital revolution in a positive and constructive manner. Creating a curriculum that appreciates the power of technology in the learning process can serve to increase engagement in the classroom and make learning easier and more efficient.
  39. 39.  A common misperception surrounding the impact of technology on learning is that the Internet, with all its factual data, has served to render our long-term memory as useless. Why commit to learning something if a simple press of a button will give you the answers you are looking for? Proponents of this argument therefore believe that the need to remember facts is no longer essential to our education. However, these arguments often ignore the dynamic between long- term memory and working memory.
  40. 40. A person’s long-term memory has much more capacity than their working memory that can only remember between 4-7 items before it becomes overloaded. Therefore, working memory space is premium, in order for it to be free on a regular basis we have to commit certain facts to our long-term memory. This is perhaps why researchers label long-term memory as ‘the seat of human intellectual skill.’
  41. 41.  Laptops, tabletsaddictive nature of technology, such as video games, can be harnessed in positive ways. An innovation in education is underway. Is it possible to design educational video games and software tools that hold children’s attention in the same way that computer games do? An example of such efforts comes in the form of the Essa Academy in Bolton, the United Kingdom. , and smartphones are facing sharp criticism for their ability to distract the student in the classroom and lecture theatre. This is not surprising, with studies showing that university students who frequently engage with laptops during lectures understand less than those who do not. However, the
  42. 42.  The story of the Essa Academy encapsulates the transformative impact of technology on the learning process. In 2009, the school was ‘failing’ according to OFSTED inspectors, but now the school has drastically improved pupils’ results and satisfaction. The school gave every pupil a new iPod with software configured to teachers’ computers. Additional iPads are found in every classroom, and pupils in Biology class use these to create stop-start movies reflecting the dynamic aspect of Nature.
  43. 43. Much criticism was levelled at the plan to give a ‘failing’ school, where 80% of pupils come from ‘deprived areas’, so much funding. The local media implied that, due to the economic status of the pupils, most of the new iPods would be sold on eBay, but this has not happened. Students seem to treasure them, with only 1-2% of the gadgets reported lost, stolen, or damaged.
  44. 44. “There’s something like a sense of belonging in having your own device. You have access to everything at the touch of your hand, literally” – Aadil Pariejwala.
  45. 45. The mastermind behind the plan, which has now been mirrored by the neighbouring private school, is director Abdul Chohan. Chohan took a risk that seems to be paying off, he was actually told he would be fired if the plan did not work! Before the scheme, only 25% of Essa’s students attained 5 good GCSEs, but now that number has more than doubled, reaching higher than the national average.
  46. 46.  Further innovative steps to complement the plan can be seen throughout the School campus with no designated ‘staff room’ (pupils can enter when they like to ask for advice), and an internal Email system. These examples foster a sense of cooperation between teachers and pupils, relieving the School of the ‘them versus us’ attitude that can come to undermine the learning process. By incorporating a collegiate atmosphere, a tailor-made curriculum, and engaging technology, pupils are adequately prepared for any future job.
  47. 47. Cone of Experience
  48. 48. Conceptual Model of learning
  49. 49.  1 - Adaptive Learning This is an educational method which uses computers as interactive teaching devices. Computers adapt the presentation of educational material according to students' learning needs, as indicated by their responses to questions and tasks. The motivation is to allow electronic education to incorporate the value of the interactivity afforded to a student by an actual human teacher or tutor. The technology encompasses aspects derived from various fields of study including computer science, education, and psychology (1)
  50. 50.  2 - Virtual Classroom "A virtual classroom is an online learning environment. The environment can be web-based and accessed through a portal or software-based and require a downloadable executable file. Just like in a real-world classroom, a student in a virtual classroom participates in synchronous instruction, which means that the teacher and students are logged into the virtual learning environment at the same time."(2)
  51. 51.  3 - MOOCS "Mooc is an acronym for “massive open online course”. It refers to a web-based class designed to support a large number of participants.Typically, students enrolled in a mooc watch video lectures – often sliced into digestible 10 or 15- minute segments – and interact with instructors and fellow participants in online forums. Some moocs require students to take online tests or quizzes with multiple choice answers that can be graded automatically, while others require students to complete peer-reviewed assignments. Some moocs use a combination of these assessments."(3)
  52. 52.  4 - Synchronous Vs Asynchronous Learning "Synchronous online classes are those that require students and instructors to be online at the same time. Lectures, discussions, and presentations occur at a specific hour. All students must be online at that specific hour in order to participate. Asynchronous classes are just the opposite. Instructors provide materials, lectures, tests, and assignments that can be accessed at any time. Students may be given a timeframe – usually a one week window – during which they need to connect at least once or twice. But overall, students are free to contribute whenever they choose.
  53. 53.  5 - Blended Learning " A blended learning approach combines face to face classroom methods with computer-mediated activities to form an integrated instructional approach. In the past, digital materials have served in a supplementary role, helping to support face to face instruction. For example, a blended approach to a traditional, face to face course might mean that the class meets once per week instead of the usual three- session format. Learning activities that otherwise would have taken place during classroom time can be moved online...."
  54. 54. 6 - Flipped Classroom Flipped Classroom is an inverted method of instruction where teaching and learning take place outside of the class while homework is done in the classroom.
  55. 55.  7 - Self-directed Learning ’self-directed learning’ describes a process by which individuals take the initiative, with our without the assistance of others, in diagnosing their learning needs, formulating learning goals, identify human and material resources for learning, choosing and implement appropriate learning strategies, and evaluating learning outcomes.” (Knowels 1975 cited in 6).
  56. 56.  8 - Learning Management Systems "A learning management system (LMS) is a software application or Web-based technology used to plan, implement, and assess a specific learning process. Typically, a learning management system provides an instructor with a way to create and deliver content, monitor student participation, and assess student performance. A learning management system may also provide students with the ability to use interactive features such as threaded discussions, video conferencing, and discussion forums.'(7)
  57. 57.  9 - Cloud Based Learning "Essentially, the Cloud is a notion of a group of computers acting as one – and all connected to a network (and usually, the World Wide Web). Further, the Cloud is a model of computing that allows for scaling of resources based upon real-time needs. So, if there are many users utilizing the system, a larger number of resources will be called upon to help distribute the load. Cloud based learning takes the notion of a perpetual, universally accessible, scalable network of computers and applies it to electronic learning – everything from online classrooms at accredited universities, to smaller training modules to be used within companies or other private enterprises."(8)
  58. 58.  10 - Mobile Learning "Mobile learning is the ability to obtain or provide educational content on personal pocket devices such as PDAs, smartphones and mobile phones. Educational content refers to digital learning assets which includes any form of content or media made available on a personal device."(9)
  59. 59.  11 - Course Management System ( CMS ) "A course management system is a set of tools that enables the instructor to create online course content and post it on the Web without having to handle HTML or other programming languages."(10)
  60. 60.  12 - E-learning E-Learning means "electronic learning" — it refers to a wide range of applications and processes designed to deliver instruction through electronic means. Usually this means over the Web, however it also can include CD-ROM or video-conferencing through satellite transmission. The definition of E-learning is broader than, but includes, "online learning," "Web-based training," and "computer-based training."(11)
  61. 61.  13 - 1:1 Technology "Providing every student with a laptop or tablet to make learning more individualized, increase independence, and extend academics beyond the classroom"(12)
  62. 62.  14- Gamification "Gamification typically involves applying game design thinking to non-game applications to make them more fun and engaging."(13)
  63. 63. Learning through Ed Tech 2
  64. 64. “Integrating Technology into Teaching and Learning”  The meaning of which is putting together technology into teaching and learning so that these will become one in learner’s education. To specify- focused on introducing, reinforcing, supplementing, and extending the knowledge and skills to learners so that they can become exemplary users of educational technology.
  65. 65.  ET-2 will involve a deeper understanding of the computer as well as hands-on- application of computer skills. To infuse technology in the student-teacher training, helping learners to adapt and meet rapid and continuing technology changes in information and communication technology (ICT) environment.
  66. 66. The course objectives are:  To provide education in the use of technology in instruction;  To impart learning experiences in instructional technology supported instructional planning;  To acquaint students on information technology;  To learn to use and evaluate computer-based educational resources;  To engage learners on practical technology; and  To inculcate higher-level thinking and creativity among students.
  67. 67. “IT ENTERS A NEW LEARNING ENVIRONMENT”  The four conceptual models namely Meaning Learning, Discovery Learning, Generative Learning and Constructivism are useful in achieving instructional goals through preferred application of educational technology. With these conceptual models, we shall see how effective teachers best interact with their students in innovative learning activities while integrating technology to the teaching-learning process.
  68. 68. Meaningful Learning  This gives focus to new experience that is related to what the learner already knows. A new experience departs from the learning of a sequence of words or memorization through rote memory but gives attention to meaning. It assumes that:  Students already have some knowledge that is relevant to new learning
  69. 69.  Students are willing to perform class work to find connections between what they already know and what they can learn.  In the learning process, the learner is encouraged to recognize relevant personal experiences. A reward structure is set so that the learner will have both interest and confidence, and this incentive system gives positive reinforcement to learning.
  70. 70. Discovery Learning  This kind of learning is differentiated from reception learning in which ideas are presented directly to students in a well-organized way, such as through a detailed set of instructions to complete an experiment or task. To make a contrast, in discovery learning students perform tasks to uncover what is to be learned. New ideas and new decisions are generated in the learning process, regardless of the need to move on and depart from organized set-off activities. In discovery learning, it is important that the student become personally involved and not subjected by the teacher to procedures he/she is not allowed to depart from.
  71. 71.  In applying technology, the computer can present a tutorial process by which the learner is given key concepts and the rules learning are directly presented for receptive type of learning. But aside from that, the computer has other uses. In a computer simulation process, for example, the learner himself is made to identify key concepts by interacting with a responsive virtual environment. The learner thus discovers the concepts from the experience the virtual environment provides.
  72. 72. Generative Learning  In generative learning we have active learners who attend to learning events and generate drawing from this experience and draw inferences thereby creating a personal model or explanation to the new experience in the context of existing knowledge.
  73. 73.  Generative learning is viewed as different from the simple process of storing information for motivation and responsibility is said to be crucial to this domain of learning. Examples of this in the area of language comprehension are activities such as writing paragraph, summaries, developing answers and questions, drawing pictures, creating paragraph titles, organizing ideas/concepts, and others. In sum, generative learning gives emphasis to what can be done with the pieces of information not only just an access to them.
  74. 74. Constructivism  In constructivism, the learner builds a personal understanding through appropriate learning activities and a good learning environment. The two accepted principles are:  Learning consists of what a person can actively assemble for himself and not what he can receive passively.  The role of learning is to help the individual live/adapt to his personal world.
  75. 75.  With these two principles in turn lead to three practical implications:  The learner is directly responsible for learning. He creates personal understanding and transforms information into knowledge. The teacher plays an indirect role by modeling effective learning, assisting, facilitating, and encouraging learners.  The context of meaningful learning consists in the learner “connecting” his school activity with real life.  The purpose of education is acquisition of practical and personal knowledge, not abstract or universal truths.
  76. 76. The Four Types of IT-Based Projects
  77. 77. Resource-based Projects  In these projects, the teacher steps out of the traditional role of being a content expert and information provider, and instead lets the students find their own facts and information. Only when necessary for the active learning process does the teacher step in to supply data or information. The general flow of events in resource-based projects are:
  78. 78.  1. The teacher determines the topic for the examination of the class (e.g. the definition of “man”)  2. The teacher presents the problem to the class.  3. The students find information on the problem/questions.  4. Students organize their information in response to the problems/questions.
  79. 79. Students can also be assigned to create their software materials. Of course, there are available software materials such as Creative Writer (by Microsoft) on writing, KidWork Deluxe (by Davidson) on drawing and painting, and Media Weave (by Humanities software) on multimedia). In developing software, creativity as an outcome should not be equated with ingenuity or high intelligence. Creating is more consonant with planning, making, assembling, designing, or building. Creativity is said to combine three kind of skills/abilities:
  80. 80. Analyzing  distinguishing similarities and differences/ seeing the project as a problem to be solved.
  81. 81. Synthesizing  making spontaneous connections among ideas, thus generating interesting or new ideas.
  82. 82. Promoting  selling of new ideas to allow the public to test the ideas themselves.
  83. 83. “COMPUTER AS INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY”  Through computer technology, educators saw the amplification of learning along with computer literacy. Much Like reading, the modern student can now interact with computer messages; even respond to questions or to computer commands. Again like writing, the learner can form messages using computer language or program.
  84. 84.  Some computer-assisted instruction (CAI) was introduced using the principle of individualized learning through a positive climate that includes realism and appeal with drill, exercises that uses color, music and animation. The novelty of CAI has not waned to this day especially in the basic education level as this is offered by computer- equipped private schools. But the evolving pace of innovation in today’s Information Age is so dynamic that within the first decade of the 21st century, computer technology in education has matured to transform into an educative information and communication technology (ICT) in education.
  85. 85. The Personal Computer (PC) as ICT  Until the nineties, it was still possible to distinguish between instructional media and the educational communication media.  Instructional media consist of audio-visual aids that served to enhanced and enrich the teaching- learning process. Examples are the blackboard, photo, film and video.
  86. 86.  On the other hand, educational communication media comprise the media of communication. For example, the distance learning was implemented using correspondence, radio, television, or the computer satellite system.  Close to the turn of the 21st century, however, such a distinction merged owing to the advent of the microprocessor, also known as the office and school has before him a tool for both audio-visual creations and media communication.
  87. 87. “THE COMPUTER AS A TUTOR”  The computer is one of the wonders of human ingenuity, even in its original design in the 1950s to carry out complicated mathematical and logical operations. With the invention of the microcomputer (now also commonly referred to PCs or personal computers), the PC has become the tool for programmed instruction.
  88. 88.  Educators saw much use of the PC. It has become affordable to small business, industries and homes. They saw its potential for individualization in learning, especially as individualized learning is a problem since teachers usually with a class of forty or more learners. They therefore devised strategies to use the computer to break the barriers to individualized instruction.
  89. 89. Computer-Assisted Instruction (CAI)  The computer can be a tutor in effect relieving the teacher of many activities in his personal role as a classroom tutor. It should be made clear, however, that the computer cannot totally replace the teacher since the teacher shall continue to play major roles of information deliverer and learning environment controller. Even with the available computer and CAI software, the teacher must:
  90. 90.  Decide the appropriate learning objectives  Plan the sequential and structured activities to achieve objectives.  Evaluate the students’ achievement by ways of tests of the specific expected outcomes.
  91. 91. THE COMPUTER AS THE TEACHER’S TOOL  Constructivism was introduced by Jean Piaget (1981) and Bruner (1990). They gave stress to knowledge discovery of new meaning/concepts/principles in the learning process. Various strategies have been suggested to foster knowledge discovery, among these, is making students engaged in gathering unorganized information from which they can induce ideas and principles. Students are also asked to apply discovered knowledge to new situations, a process for making their knowledge applicable to real life situations.
  92. 92.  While knowledge is constructed by the individual learner in constructivism, knowledge can also be socially constructed. Social Constructivism is the effort to show that the construction of knowledge is governed by social, historical and cultural contexts. In effect, this is to say that the learner who interprets knowledge has a predetermined point of view according to the social perspectives of the community or society he lives in.
  93. 93.  The psychologist Vygotsky stressed that learning is affected by social influences. He suggested the interactive process in learning. A more capable adult (teacher or parent) can aid or complement what the learner sees in a given tasks or project. In addition, John Dewey sees language as medium for social coordination and adaptation. For Dewey, human learning is really human languaging that occurs when students socially share, build and agree upon meanings and knowledge.
  94. 94. Informative Tool  The computer can provide vast amounts of information in various forms, such as text, graphics, sound, and video. Even multimedia encyclopedia are today available on the internet.
  95. 95. Communication Tool  The computer has been used in communication as evident by social networking sites as to facebook, twitter and friendster. We can even chat/talk friends and families anywhere in the globe through yahoo messenger or the one in facebook or view them through the webcam. We can send messages and information through the internet in just seconds or minutes.
  96. 96. Constructive Tool  The computer itself can be used for manipulating information, visualizing one’s understanding, and building new knowledge. The Microsoft Word computer program itself is a desktop publishing software that allows users to organize and present their ideas in attractive formats.
  97. 97. Co-constructive Tool  Students can use constructive tools to work cooperatively and construct a shared understanding of new knowledge. One way of co- construction is the use of the electronic whiteboard where students may post notices to a shared document/whiteboard. Students may also co-edit the same document from their homes.
  98. 98. Situating Tool  By means of virtual reality (RS) extension systems, the computer can create 3-D images on display to give the user the feeling that are situated in a virtual environment. A flight simulation program is an example of a situating tool which places the user in simulated flying environment.
  99. 99. INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY IN SUPPORT OF STUDENT CENTERED LEARNING  The idea of student-centered learning is not a recent idea. In fact, as early as the 20th century, educational educators such as John Dewey argued for highly active and individualized pedagogical methods which place the student at the center of the teaching-learning process.
  100. 100. The Traditional Classroom  It may be observed that classrooms are usually arranged with neat columns and rows of student chairs or desks, while the teacher stands in front of the classroom or sits behind his table. This situation is necessitated by the need to maintain classroom discipline, also allows the teacher to control classroom activities through lecture presentation and teacher-led discussions.  Noticeably, however, after spending so many minutes in lesson presentation and class management, students can get restless and fidgety. Often enough, the teacher has to also manage misbehaviour in class as students start to talk among themselves or simply stare away in lack of attention.
  101. 101. The SCL Classroom  John Dewey has described traditional learning as a process in which the teacher pours information to student learners, much like pouring water from a jug into cups. This is based on the long accepted belief that the teacher must perform his role of teaching so that learning can occur. This learning approach is generally known as direct instruction, and it has worked well for obtaining many kinds of learning outcomes. The problem with it is that the approach in learning, however, is the fact that the world’s societies have began to change. It may not be felt strongly to countries in which on countries who depends mostly their economy to factory workers. Traditional and direct instruction is very useful in these countries.
  102. 102.  In contrast, industrialized societies we find knowledge-based economies in which workers depend on information that can be accessed through information and communication technologies (ICTs). Desiring to gain effectiveness, efficiency and economy in administration, schools in these developed economies have also adopted the support of ICTs. Their students have now become active not passive learners, demonstrating independence and self-awareness in the learning process.
  103. 103. THE INTERNET AND EDUCATION  The internet, also simply called the NET is the largest and far flung-network system-of-all- systems. Surprisingly, the internet is not really a network but a loosely organize collection of about 25,000 networks accessed by computer on the planet. It is astonishing to know that no one owns the internet. It has no central headquarters, no centrally offered services, and no comprehensive online index to tell users what information is available in the system.
  104. 104.  Educational technology is indeed very helpful for me. But it should not be abused be used in a wrong way. Computer should not just be used in a playing games, posting photos and etc. rather it used in a correct way instead playing online games why don’t we Google our assignment over the internet for me educational technology is a big help for me because I could Gin more and also educational technology gives us a better comprehension. From the technology
  105. 105.  In this lesson we are being aware the importance of computer to our learning and to our life, it helps us to be computer literate and aside from that it enhances our knowledge about the use of computer.
