Teachers need to reconsider their way of teaching. Technology is getting more and more advanced each day therefore instead of lagging behind by sticking to the mainstream methods why not use technology to teach? I believe it would make teaching and learning more interesting and engaging for both students and teachers. Teachers also need to be engaging and find activities that will allow students to be attentive in class and understand what is being taught. This newly found way of teaching is more effective and with technology there many creative ways of bringing lessons across.
Feedback is a significant element in determination of education quality as well as in effective learning where it portrays the learning outcomes for students and the successes for the tutors. There are many aspects that concern educationists with regards to feedback but the relationship between perspectives of learning as well as teaching and feedback stands as the most important among them. Feedback should be conveyed in different modes in a learning environment but whatever mode chosen creates room for dialogue between the tutor and students. Therefore, it is only through feedback that the student engagement relationship with the feedback as well as the tutors’ perceptions of learning, teaching and assessment that such successes can be established. The Rationale Feedback is closely related to learning and teaching theories making it a significant element in learning despite the theories that may be adapted.
Understanding this, we as teachers need to know how intrigued our learners are at getting information and as such be ready and well trained to provide it hence the reason, learning science at a young age is so crucial. Research and personal endeavours suggest that learners have a much greater potential to learn than previously thought. Therefore, young childhood and primary learners setting should provide richer and more learner friendly environments for learning to take place effectively. We can now see that to provide such settings, classroom teachers are therefore called to be more skilled and innovative while being mindful that what and how our learners learn today can significantly impact their ability or inability for later science learning.
It is very necessary on the part of the teacher to perform effectively in order to bring out the desired outcomes of the learners and this requires effective and appropriate use of teaching skills in classroom. Teachers are asked not only to present information, but to help students grow in creativity, curiosity, social adjustment, problem solving, and responsibility; teachers are also asked to help students develop a good attitude toward classmates and their school. The accomplishment of these goals has a greater chance if teachers use effective teaching competencies. In the fast changing world of the early 21st century, secondary education is also changing; the role of teachers will also change. New social challenges and demands towards education and teachers, change schools into institutions with modern aims and social contracts.
Concept maps are an efficient strategy for meaningful learning. The findings prove that the concept map approach really helps students in learning. Implementation of concept maps in order to be implemented effectively and efficiently, the lecturer should assign the students in concept map before the subject or sub-topic is presented, so that the students can read the material before it is taught, so the student will become active in the lecture when the lecturer teaches the material or when other students are presenting the concept map material. In addition, the implementation of concept maps can inspire the spirit of student learning, as well as demands in meaningful learning. This statement is similar to what is found in the results of research conducted by Zubaidah et al.
Educators will play a big role in the students’ learning capabilities using technology-based education. It will also be more advantageous for the educators to learn how to use technology-based education for it will improve and upgrade their teaching strategies. They can also distinguish the variety of strategies from one another and will be able to help them in communicating with their students. It can widen their teaching capacities and improve their credibility as an educator. The students would also be one of the beneficiaries of this research as they will be able to know the more applicable way of learning suitable for them.
Teachers are able to think of ways how they will extend the learning of the student and go outside the four corner of the classroom. Now, English teachers that uses technology in language teaching knows that the technology must be anchored to the pedagogical objectives and goals. with the various technology present teachers wont run out of option on what technologies are appropriate. S.Flanagan & M. Shoffner cited Meaningful technology use can support positive teaching and learning outcomes that includes effective instruction, support for authentic learning,
Education is the process of skill formation. It helps the students to get acquainted to a range of subjects such as language, history, philosophy, science and arithmetic etc. the skills acquired in this way are helpful to understand the outside world and they may also help us to cognitize the experiences from the world. The way education is imparted to a student is very important. The whole process of education is crucial for a society as it plays a key role in determining the course of its development.
And with the integration of technology to the teaching and learning process will help the teacher to enhance and develop their strategies, techniques and methods. Technology has been found to improve the retention of information (Park, 2008), critical thinking skill (Yang, 2008) and problem-solving abilities (Neo, 2008). And for measuring the learning of the students the teacher prepare an activity. The development of learning activity is the key in transmitting knowledge to the learners of todays’ generation. And, computer is one of the output of technology, and it will be needed to enhance and improve the learning activity.
It encourages a higher level of thinking compared to the basal level of instruction for students, predicts events and reacts to characters in stories. It gives learners the opportunity to think deeply and share their thoughts about a story. Reading-based instructions enhance vocabulary, improve reading comprehension, and language growth. However, there are several disadvantages of using authentic reading materials such as difficulty in finding a variety of books suited to every learner in a diverse classroom, wherein learners varying levels of vocabulary and comprehension abilities are considered. Moreover, it gives additional work for the teacher to look for stories relevant to students’ lives.
