EdTech's Roles & Functions in the 21st Century Learning
Transcript of EdTech's Roles & Functions in the 21st Century Learning
Do you know what is Educational Technology?
In order to prepare our students to play their role in the 21st century society, the following can be considered when deciding how education will look in our schools and classrooms:
the effective use of technological tools in learning. As a concept, it concerns an array of tools, such as media, machines and networking hardware, as well as considering underlying theoretical perspectives for their effective application.
What is Technology?
the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes, especially in industry
is the collection of techniques, skills, methods and processes used in the production of goods or services or in the accomplishment of objectives, such as scientific investigation
1. Instruction should be student-centered
Education is no longer about listening to the teacher talk and absorbing information. Instead of passively receiving information, their students would gather information on their own, under the guidance of the teacher.
2. Education should be collaborative.
Students should be encouraged to work together to discover information, piece it together, and construct meaning. Schools should also be collaborating with other educational institutions to share information and learn about different practices or methods that have been developed.
3. Learning should have context.
Students will be much more motivated to learn something that they can see the value in. Lessons have little purpose if they don't have any impact in the student's life outside schools.
