This app helps build skills to get students on the road to master the 5th grade reading TEK of identifying new vocabulary using a variety of strategies. Using the TCEA App Evaluation I gave this a total of 15 out of 24 points making it a good option for use with students. The Curriculum Connection received 3 of 4 points because while the skills taught in the app are related to the content they are not reinforced strongly. The authenticy of the app also received 3 of 4 points because not all aspects were taught in an authentic manner especially the new vocabulary. Feedback only received 1 point because the only feedback students get is whether they got the question wrong or right and the correct answer.
One of such areas is education in which there has been a transition of the tools of instruction, the skills to be developed, and the new ways of communication that teachers and students have access nowadays (Roblyer, 2015; Greene, Yu & Copeland, 2014 ). Gadgets such as interactive boards, iPads, and smart phones, are some of the tools which are available to be used for educational purposes (Carrington &Robinson, 2009; Castek, 2012). These gadgets and the Internet have become crucial tools in bilingual education since it helps learners to improve their English language proficiency and support them in the learning of content area (Castek, 2012, Mckee-Waddell, 2015). It is the responsibility for educators, school administrators and everyone involved in education to provide learners with digital opportunities to succeed in school (Castek, 2012). If learners are successful in the school, they will eventually succeed in the workplace (Castek,
Global Perspective “Being in the 21st century, we’re in the technology age,” said Tennant, principal at Glacial Drumlin School. “For students, it comes pretty natural to them. Our role is to show them the application of the technology to education.” In US, many schools had put technologies into the lesson to help learning much easier. Advancing technology was thought to be a tool which can make students think more critically and make student teacher interaction much easier. Laptops are one of the technologies which schools use it to help the education easier, so many schools in US allow students to bring it to school.
Limitations and recommendations for further study In spite of making great efforts to conduct the study, there exists some unavoidable limitations. Firstly, in terms of methodology, the collected data were mainly from 46 students’ written tests and survey questionnaires for 120 students and 5 writing teachers. They might not fully reflect all aspects of grammatical errors in writing at HaUI. Therefore, future research may combine survey questionnaires with direct writing tests or direct interview as research instruments to get a more reliable and complete result. Secondly, the participants of the study were merely limited to the first-year students and teachers at FFL (HaUI).
E-Learning is one type of technology supported learning, where great potential is to spread knowledge worldwide. E-learning according to Markus (2008) can be defined as a learning process created by interaction with digitally delivered content, network-based services and tutoring support. E -learning is any technologically mediated learning using computers whether from a distance or in face to face classroom setting (computer assisted learning), it is a shift from traditional education or training to ICT-based personalized, flexible, individual, self-organized, collaborative learning based on a community of learners, teachers, facilitators, and experts. Historically, there had been two common e-learning modes: distance learning and computer assisted instruction. Distance learning uses information technologies to deliver instruction to learners who are at remote locations from a central site.
In online education provide many subjects and programs that are not available in the standard learning school. Distance learning is much more flexible than the traditional classroom education. You just learning in your free time not reatrict in strictness timetable. The open distance learning timetable is very flexibility so open distance learning is suitable for taking family and work. Sitting in the classroom it is not the best way for all students.
DISTANCE LEARNING Abstract: In this paper we studied about benefits and drawbacks of distance learning that how online learning is good for students and how it has disadvantages in many ways. E-learning there is a lot of research taken on advantages of e-learning but at same time disadvantages must also be keep in mind. Keywords: Distance-learning, benefits, drawbacks, computer, internet, students Introduction: The fast development of Internet technologies has delivered a multiple learning management systems that can support teaching and learning activities through distance-learning in educational and training institutions around the world (Martin Daniel, 2014). While traditional teaching is usually done in classroom with teacher leading the
As we know, traditional classroom based instruction is usually carried out in the campus or classroom teaching activities, teachers face to face with the students to impart knowledge and technology. However, different from the traditional classroom, online learning is on the Internet, and is not restricted by distance, also called distance education. Nowadays, online learning is becoming more and more popular, causes us to consider which of the two ways of teaching is more suitable for education. Through the comparison and analysis of the two kinds of classes, the traditional classroom is preferable. Compared with the participation of students in online learning and traditional classroom, it is concluded that online teaching is more beneficial for participation.
In short, online assessment is viewed as highly efficient assessment tool (Boitshwarelo et al., 2017) as it offers various advantages which could not afforded by conventional assessment method (DeSouza & Fleming, 2003). Firstly, online assessment benefit students as it is flexible in term of time and place (DeSouza & Fleming, 2003; Davidrajuh & Tharmalingam, 2005; Thwin, 2009; Oldfield, Broadfoot, Sutherland & Timmis, 2012; Timmis, Broadfoot, Sutherland & Oldfield, 2016). In contrast to computer assisted assessment which is usually offered as a software package and conducted in computer lab, online assessment need not be limited to computer lab (DeSouza & Fleming, 2003). In another word, students need not go to
As a result, universities dedicated only to online education have emerged and traditional universities have expanded their oﬀer with b-learning (hybrid classroom and online learning) and e-learning (pure online learning) courses. As Daradoumis, Juan, Lera-López, & Faulin (2010a) state, e-learning has many more positive aspects: (a) it favours interactive communication among students, and between students
