The role of digital technology has become more apparent in our lives, but for students in our educational system, it has become increasingly so. This is seen by the increasing amount of technology that students use, from smartphones to tablets and laptops. Along with the technology students use, there have been great advancements in the classroom, from Smartboards to computer labs and online curriculum. While some technology can have disadvantages like cyberbullying and plagiarism, the advantages of educational technology vastly outweigh them. Digital technology in education is used for many things, including building teacher’s curriculum, increasing productivity in students, and even finding a common ground between life at school and home.
In this study, the researchers mentioned that ICT has a profound impact in classrooms as organisational a change is needed in order to change how the students interact in the class as to form a collaborative and interactive learning process. This is also agreed as mentioned in one of the research that the collaborative use of technology is usually more effective than individual use (Higgins, Xiao, Katsipataki, 2012). Moreover, the study also identified that whether or not the technology is used can make the difference, but it is actually on how well the technology is used to support teaching and learning process. Indeed, technology is best used as a supplement to normal teaching rather than as a replacement for
Influence ICT tools use in language learning to improve communication skills in Arts and science colleges Information and Communication Technology as aids in the teaching of English as second language to improve communication skills. Most importantly, ICT enhance language learning process and it has one of the significant tools. Undoubtedly, the use of ICT in Arts and science colleges brings with it a lot of learning experiences for the students, helping them to do their work autonomously thereby leading to self-reliance. They also get better access to information enabling them to improve their ESL acquisition; improving their comprehending, Communication skills. Through ICT this paper envisage that many English language teachers will be encouraged
The development of technology in education has largely facilitates the universalization of education. It provides organized way of education or learning on the basis of students’ needs, attitude, interest and habit. This learning is possible at any time or any place. That is why hybrid learning is necessary for better achievement and reducing stress in education. With the help of hybrid learning students gain knowledge on various advanced social issues & computer.
Introduction Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) in education helps to teach current student valuable knowledge and skills via computing and communications tools. Such as websites, apps, software in devices and other ICT tools help teachers to teach and kids to learn through learning theories. Information Communication Technology (ICT) in education helps to spread the education globally and allows a greater right to use to it. Moreover, ICT increases the flexibility which means anyone can access knowledge at any time and disable the geographical obstacles. As (Weert, 2005) have pointed out, learning is an ongoing lifelong activity where learners change their expectations by seeking knowledge, which departs from traditional
Abstract— The main objective of this research review paper is to study about the Information and communication technology tools for effective cooperative learning. Application of ICT tools in the cooperative learning environment can create a more flexible, effective and interactive friendly environment for the students. ICT tools offer cooperative environment that allows transferring information to students via the internet and group discussions in an interactive manner. Particularly, digital tools have made working and learning more effective and interesting for media learners. ICT technology plays an important role in project works with the help of script writing software, special effect software, editing software, dubbing software, etc.
The flexible teaching learning strategies provide high quality education and ensure equity in educational opportunities. 5. The large population of the school subjects such as mathematics, science, social science, and communication are rapidly relay on media for their teaching and learning. 6. Thus the media enhance the teaching-learning effectiveness by utilizing various media like printed material, radio, video, television, internet, e-learning, and
Likewise, education, which is acknowledged as a milestone in everyone’s life span, has been taken advantages of technology via especially computers. Schools have been offering the educational courses to students by the help of teachers, separately several classes, and lesson books. However, with the advanced technology in today’s world, this traditionally given educational courses in the schools have had a change in terms of the way of teaching, and the varieties of getting education during classes. Particularly, it can be easily noticed that the conditions offered by schools are fairly more equipped and qualified for both students and teachers. Hence, the basic factor for improved educational system is seen as technology.
The teacher is the key to the effective exploitation of this resource in the educational system. As computer use continues to increase in society, educators must also prepare for the use of computers within the classroom. This involves all levels of education, including elementary schools (McCannon& Crews, 2000). The role of the elementary school teacher is evolving from that of a giver of information to that of a facilitator of student learning. New technologies already exist to help teachers complete that evolution (Downs, Clark & Bennett, 1995).
ICTs have the potential to innovate, accelerate, enrich, and deepen skills, to motivate and engage students, to help relate school experience to work practices, create economic viability for tomorrow 's workers, as well as strengthening teaching and helping schools change (Davis & Tearle, 1999). It is believe that ICT has impacted greatly on teaching and learning; hence, the use of ICT helps students to communicate, share ideas, and work as a team anywhere, anytime. This includes teleconferencing classroom where students around the country are invited to meet together for discussion related to a specific topic. Under such circumstances students besides acquiring knowledge collectively, also share their learning experiences, which enable to express themselves and contemplate on their learning and also helps to involve the students in a global collaborative learning. Hence, the adoption and use of ICTs in basic educational schools have a positive impact on teaching and learning.
