"Thus, the teachers use modern information technology, information technology plays an auxiliary unique features of teaching, to improve classroom teaching is an important idea of the current school reform. To be able to reasonable and effective use of information technology in teaching, we first need to fully understand the role of IT in the classroom
The increasing interest in educational data mining makes it a new growing research area. Educational data mining also referred to as “EDM” is defined as the area of scientific inquiry centered around the development of techniques for making discoveries within the sets of data found in learning environment, and using those techniques to understand the students and the learning environment. It is a very powerful tool to reveal hidden patterns and precious knowledge, which otherwise may be difficult to establish and comprehend using traditional statistical methods. This paper introduces educational data mining, its advantages and limitation. discusses educational data mining techniques by conducting step by step processes also identified the
Conclusion In higher education, competing demands for accountability and innovation in the face of globalization, technology, and budget cuts cause us to consider how best to prepare learners who will learn for a lifetime. We contend that a shift in our understanding of curriculum design to accommodate learner-centeredness will provide the framework for preparing graduates for a lifetime of learning. Learner-centered curriculum proposes to create highly developed individuals, providing them the skills to continue creating learning experiences, digest current knowledge, and create new knowledge within the curriculum itself. Curriculum characteristics, as identified in the curriculum design project presented here, include content appropriate
Education in the 21st century needs to be more flexible and responsive to the dynamic changes of, and rapid growth in, technologies, and corresponding challenges of increasing global competition. Plans and policies at national levels for future ICT integration need to adequately support students, particularly in terms of the development of abilities and knowledge to interact in the 21st century economies and societies. National ICT policies can serve several functions and provide a rationale a set of a vision and goals for how ICT are used in school (Jones, 2003 & Kozma, 2003 cited in Kozma, 2005). Many countries throughout the world have published National ICT policies and plans for education focused on preparing young learners to live and
TPACK can be redefined as; the pedagogical dimensions that use the new technologies in constructive methods to deliver subject content in a manner that offers the learners a new understanding of the world around them. Basically the combination of these three factors technology, pedagogy and content knowledge have formed and shaped the TPACK model to be considered as the most important element in the learning process, the TPACK in the learning process can lead to success or failure process or outcomes, it depends on both the student and the teacher, everyone has his own role for it to be successful, the students have to improve their skills in the ICT as a receiver, their social communications and his critical thinking to be able to deal with the pedagogy dimension can be used inside the classroom, and regarding the teacher has to develop his skills in the ICT as well but as a sender, has to have a deep understanding for the pedagogy dimensions and to have a strong back ground about the taught subject therefore TPACK does not mean that the teacher has to deal with each element of (T, P, and C) separately but it means in simple words that the teacher has to create the pot where he needs to place these elements together for the complex interaction amongst them to take place which can be considered later as the integration between the technology and the
For better decision making, the data collected from large repositories of different applications require proper method of extracting knowledge. There are increasing research interests in using data mining in education. This new emerging field, called Educational Data Mining, concerns with developing methods that discover knowledge from data originating from educational environments . The Educational Data Mining (EDM) aims at the discovery of useful information from large collections of data . Educational Data Mining uses many techniques such as Decision Trees, Neural Networks, Naïve Bayes, K- Nearest neighbor, and many others for classification, prediction, association rule generation, discover and extract patterns of stored data .
The result derived from a case study on virtual reality in education is discussed using a holistic argumentative approach. Finally, future directions for research in HCI affecting human psychology are proposed. Introduction It is only when we analyze what brought us where we are today, can we move forward. When we think of computers, it becomes necessarily and inevitable to think of humans and the way computer machines affect human psychology. It seems apt to state that today the need has arisen for the field of HCI to move parallel or even faster to the development of new technologies that relate reality with virtual reality.
Technology trains students for the Future. Technology, with its resources, in the classroom would help prepare them for the digital future. These 21st century skills are indispensable in order to be flourishing in this era. Education isn’t just about memorizing facts and vocabulary words; it’s about solving complex problems and being to collaborate with others in the workforce. Ed-tech in the classroom prepares students for their future and sets them up for this increasing digital
Just as the Industrial Age brought massive societal change, the “Information Age” - the age of computers - does the same. From entertainment to education, technology permeates every aspect of life - but how should society use this powerful new tool? The world is already moving in the technological direction, but is society preparing future generations for this new age of information? Although some claim that it is primarily a distraction, technology should have more emphasis in education, because it is beneficial to learning, and will continue to be an important aspect of the future world. The first example of technology’s educational benefits is its’ positive impact on students’ creativity, cooperation, and motivation to learn.
(http://www.uq.edu.au/ICT/what-is-ICT 2012) ICTs means information and communication technologies and are defined, for the purposes of this introduction, as a “different set of technological tools and resources used to communicate, and to create, distribute, store, and manage information.” These technologies contain computers, the Internet, broadcasting technologies (radio and television), and telephony. https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/ICT_in_Education/Definition_of_Terms Why ICT in Teaching is important to young learners. It is obvious ICTin teaching is latest method of teaching.It is adopted to facilitate young to learners to be upgraded.Firstly it is a great foundation to grow due to advanced technology. It provides the young learners with the tools to comprehend the fast advancing technology,which is happening in the world.Secondly the learners will learn the skills
