Lesson 12: Information Technology in Support of Student-Cent
Transcript of Lesson 12: Information Technology in Support of Student-Cent
It may be observed that classrooms
are usually arranged with neat columns and rows of student chairs, while the teacher stands in front of the classroom or sits behind his desk. This situation is necessitated by the need to maintain classroom discipline, also to allow the teacher to control classroom activities through lecture presentation and teacher-led discussion.
The Traditional Classroom
The Student-Centered Learning Classroom
Lesson 12: Information Technology in Support of Student-Centered Learning
The SCL Classroom
by: Miraquel Manialung
John Dewey has described traditional learning as a process in which the teacher pours information to students learners, much like pouring water from a jug into cups. This is based on the long accepted belief that the teacher must perform his role of teaching so
that learning can occur. This learning
approach is generally known as direct instruction.
The problem with the direct instruction
approach to learning,however, is the fact
that the world’s societies have began to
change. Of course, this change may not be
strongly felt in many countries in which the
economy longer depends primarily on
factory workers who do repetitive work without thinking on the job. The traditional classroom and direct instruction approach to learning conform to this kind of economies.
Observably, there is a departure from traditional worksheet,read-and-answer, drill-and-practice activities. Students also no longer need to mark the tests of peers
since the computer has programs for test evaluation and computerized scoring of results.
Given this new trends in teaching-and-learning, it must
be pointed out, however, the traditional classroom
activities – especially in less developed countries-will continue to have a strong place in the classroom. In spite
of this setback experienced in some countries, the option
has now been opened for the modern teacher to shift
gears to student centered learning.
SCL Classrooms through ICTs in developed economies have desire to gain effectiveness, efficiency and economy in administration
Their students have now become active not passive learners, who can interact with other learners,demonstrating independence and self-awareness in the learning process.
The lesson shall respond to questions on student-centered learning approaches in the classroom. From the traditional teacher centered learning approach, practical helps on designing and adapting student-learning activities.
In this lesson, we shall see how the teacher can expand his options to make himself more effective and relevant in the 21st millennium information age.
