One main difference you noticed between these two is that college is a lot different than High school and the style of teaching has changed over time. In my experience as a student, I noticed a few similarities and differences between a high school teacher and a college professor. One similarity I learned about my school teacher and college professor was that both of them had open availability. For example, If I was not understanding how to do a certain assignment, both instructors would take the time out of their day and would try to explain the instructions more vividly. This would result in me having a better understanding of the topic.
The technology we have today allows us to do everything we can do on paper, as well as offering benefits such as easier collaboration with peers and professors and providing an efficient way to conduct research. Technology has also influenced education by offering services such as online schooling for children and adults who are unable to attend public or private schools. The use of technology has and will continue to be challenged in the classroom despite all the benefits, since it causes lower test scores and creates distractions. Whether or not students are allowed to use technology in class is usually decided by the professor, not the school. I believe this occurs since some classes favor technology over others, however this should not prohibit the school from implementing a policy to limit technology as it leads towards more distractions and lower test scores.
With the advancement of technology in the classroom, education has shifted from teacher centered to student centered. This also paved the way to ICT integration, the widespread use of tablets, smartphones, interactive whiteboards, and other learning technology. Because of this, teachers are expected to be adept on using technology in teaching. Technology will not replace teachers but teachers who do not use technology in teaching will be replaced (Clifford (1983) in Wheeler (2013)). Teachers now face the demands of the Generation Z learners who are experts at multi-tasking and can use multi-tools simultaneously.
Abstract—ERP systems are the largest software applications adopted by universities, along with quite significant investments in their implementation, but as per previous literatures it find that the success rate of such system is low, may be lack of consideration of user role in acceptance of such ICT applications in the education industry. The objective of this study is to test the traditional technology acceptance model (TAM) a framework use to study the various aspects of acceptance of application of ICT, addition to this we used the TAM 2 (Extended Technology Acceptance Model) which can helpful for designing the research framework for Educational ERP System. this will also provide a an analysis of which factors influence the acceptance
Sanders offers a new perspective of angle on the concept of learning. When thinking of learning, most jump to memorization or intelligence, but Sanders argues that is not actually learning. He views learning as improving one’s self-image and comprehension so that they can use those skills in the future. He also offers a new perspective on the questions to ask about a college education. One shouldn’t ask how can I get my degree, but rather how they can get the most out of their degree.
Our attendance does not reflect our competency in the course. Well, how can faculty get students to attend class without attendance policies? There are so many alternatives to strict attendance policies — get creative! Michael Bugeja, a professor at Iowa State University, requires his students to email their excuse for class absences with the caveat that they must be completely honest. Sometimes reshaping your syllabus or lecture style can receive an increase in attendance than a strict policy
Many people believe that smartphones and tablets, with internet connectivity and text messaging services, can merely be a source of distraction. Although that may not be true. Capella University explains the strengths of technology in the classroom “5 Reasons to Incorporate Technology into Your Classroom”. Countering, article “Technology in the Classroom: Don’t Believe the Hype” by Tim Walker couldn’t be more adamant about how technology is terrible for the classroom. Students argumentally have more tools and opportunities when technology is allowed in the classroom.
Something has to change. I only wish he would have discussed in more detail as to how teachers can integrate these techniques into the common core curriculum. It’s hard to put new habits into practice, especially in the classroom. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, or just want to discuss the article with me, feel free to email me at email@example.com. You can also read the article here (and I recommend
These technologies have greatly facilitated our transformation from a Stone Age man to a smart phone man. They have assisted us in the process of teaching and learning - to “think critically” and “solve real world problems. However in the long run, probably during the industrial age, the education system changed most of us to become knowledge gatherers and knowledge seekers rather than “critical thinkers” and “real life problem solvers”. In order to maximize our benefit from these learning technologies, we need to go back in history and analyze how successfully we have used them in the past to “think critically” and “solve problems”, and pick up some interesting strategies to apply them in the current learning
In Twenty-first century, a high school diploma probably could help students obtain a job. However because of the changes in global intellectual market, nowadays employers prefer to hire those who could fully handle different problems. comprehensive university could help these students satisfied these job requirement. (Jody Zambrano, Demand Media) University education is the most common ways to provide the skills needed to work. In order to discuss this topic fully, the advantages and disadvantages for comprehensive university and benefit for technical college will be totally explained.
