Other theories which underpins authentic assessment is Experiential Learning Theory by David Kolb and Situated Learning Theory which was theorized by Lave and Wenger. Experiential learning occurs by making sense of direct everyday experiences. Concrete experiences provide the information that serves as a basis for reflection. On the other hand, Situated Learning Theory is learning in the same contexts in which concepts and theories are applied. Research has shown that real-life applied activities and problem-solving activities establish a contextual setting for many lessons, providing motivation and encouraging curiosity.
IT use in the classroom more and more widely, and teachers how reasonable and effective use of information technology, which requires teachers to fully understand the role of IT in the classroom teaching. IT use in the classroom more and more widely, and teachers how reasonable and effective use of information technology, which requires teachers to fully understand the role of information technology in the classroom, this paper tries to discuss the following aspects of information technology in classroom teaching role: to change the traditional teaching methods; strengthen the leading role of teachers; increase student interest in learning, active classroom atmosphere; disperse teaching difficult to break through teaching focus, to promote
Highlighted by Hyde, Carpenter & Conway (2011) “one of the critical changes in schools in the twenty-first century is the focus on technology and the way in which students access and use technology” (p. 30). Creating a contested space in regard to the extent of technology use in the classroom. This however, is not an issue exclusively for teachers and students. Marsh, Clarke & Pittaway (2014) add that parents, university students/teachers, technology developers, educational policymakers and community members are all involved. Hence, this issue is prevalent in all schools and universities.
Discussion and Conclusion Many authors refer to successful program outcomes as evidence of its (CBI) benefits. They either describe a program that they assert as successful; or they discuss teacher and student interests, program enrollments, and successful student adjustment to later academic careers as support for CBI (Grabe and Stoller, 1997). For the past two decades CBI has developed its own success stories wherever it is implemented, it also works for our technical students. Teachers’ have to choose an appropriate blend of content and language as per the interest and suitability of their students. The findings of Pessoa et.
In this research paper we will explore the role played by information technology in education and will also discuss about the various challenges encountered in this respect. The first challenge is on the part of teachers. It is prime responsibility of the teachers to integrate new technologies into their classrooms, but due to
Educators also recognize the importance of developing these technological skills in students. As we sail through the 21st century, technology in the classroom is becoming more and more predominant. The impact that technology has had on today’s schools has been quite significant. This widespread adoption of technology has completely changed how teachers teach and students learn. Teachers are learning how to teach with emerging technologies (tablets, iPads, Smart Boards, digital cameras, computers), while students are using advanced technology to shape how they learn.
There are core facts that ICTs integration increases a value of education and successful teaching and learning environment for both teacher and students. “ICT integration is defined as the uses of ICT, to set up, supports, addition, and increase skills” (pisapia 1994) ICT integration has been interacting a great deal of concentration among teacher and students. The uses of ICT mainly a computer promote a new environment where teacher and student could cooperate and work together to learn new skills and understanding about any subject issue and solving difficult
Thus, 21st - century learners must acquire wider skills such as the 4Cs – Critical thinking, Communication, Collaboration, and Creative. 4Cs was derived from the three 21st - century education approaches of Ministerial Council of Education, Employment, Training and Youth Affairs (MCEETYA), American Management Association (AMA) and Partnership 21, and AT21CS. It was observed that there are existing similarities in these 3 approaches in which it features the core of 4Cs. Critical thinking refers to the analytical skills of a student in solving complicated problem. Furthermore, creativity refers to the application of the unique imagination or ideas of a student.
The society has become technology driven and for that people are moving with the flow of technology. This suggests that all, in education sectors must work together to make ICT accessible to teachers and students in the teaching and learning of all school subjects including Home Economics. Lastly it has the greatly impacted the society as a whole. The utilization of ICTs in the Home economics education has also contributed to cost-effectiveness in the learning process, bridging the gap between teachers-students’ ratio and will improves the overall quality of teaching and learning.

The learning outcomes are used at all stages of the students’ academic life. It is composed of the following components: course embedded and higher-order learning outcomes; students and faculty equipped with laptops and campus wide networked classrooms; a center for teaching and learning assessment; and learning communities. These learning communities are responsible for reviewing and modifying the Academic Program Model, and include members from both inside and outside the university. In the final stage of their education, students develop electronic portfolios (e-portfolios) to demonstrate their achievements. This paper shows how technology can be used to facilitate the learning and assessment processes and how assessment is used to make the learning outcomes component work effectively.
