Technology for Learming
Transcript of Technology for Learming
There is a lot that you can do with simple things:
• Cuisenaire rods
The effective Use of Technology in Education has changed the face of education and it has created more educational opportunities.
Both teachers and students have benefited from various educational technologies, teachers have learned how to integrate technology in their classrooms and students are getting more interested in learning with technology.
If you can't teach with just a stick in the desert,
then you can't really teach at all...
There are a lot of web sites that provides to the student lot of material. In the end, however, the best things are to Google areas of interest.
• Teaching in the age of information technology
• “Low-teach” teaching
• Course book
• Virtual learning from emails to simulation
• Using soundwaves
One of the reasons why pairwork and groupwork are used so often in language learning classroom is nurturing learner autonomy.
We have to be conscious of exactly who is doing what. For example, in the past. it sometimes seemed as if the only person who used the board was the teacher. But of course, students can use boards, too: they can write on them, stick things on them, draw on them, etc.
When students are using mini-whiteboards or mobile digital devices, they can be in control of what they are doing, and they can work in pairs or groups to do this .When planning a lesson which will include classroom technology of whatever kind, we should think carefully about who we want to put ‘in the driving seat’, and then match the technology to that decision
How can technology help teachers?
Blended Learning referred to the option that teachers have to go beyond the classroom without necessarily moving from their seats.
Technology for Learning
According to Marc Prensky
who does what?
Is one suggestion for a reshaping of the relationship between the classroom and the outside (online) world
The homework and the practice takes place in the lesson, and the input is offered at home.
There is far more chance, in class, for the students to get the individual attention of the teacher
Arguments in favor of the flipped classroom have been reinforced by organizations such as the Khan Academy (www.khanacademy.org) which offers ‘free. world-class education for anyone and everywhere
A problem arises, however, when we consider students' attitude to homework in general. As we saw before, some do it , others do not
Another discussion about digital-based learning was provoked by Sugata Mitra's ‘hole-in-the-wall' experiment. Observing these children’s ability to learn collaborative/y without traditional teacher input, Mitra proposed ‘schools in the Cloud’ in part to meet the educational deprivation to consider what the role of the teacher should be in an increasingly digital world Finally, what matters is what, as teachers, we hope our students will achieve. When we know that, we can select the classroom technology old or new that will best help them to achieve the outcomes we have chosen for them
If a classroom and students have internet connectivity, there are many exciting possibilities to do
Apps and websites
Data analytics and adaptive learning
omeone who grew up in a digital age, like children and adolescents
omeone who was already alive when the revolution happened and so had to learn how to use what it had to offer.
These questions are relevant not just to new technology, of course, but also to any new methodology, procedure, coursebook or program that is offered to teachers.
What is the pedigree?
Why is this the best way to do this?
Does it pass the TEA test?
What’s the TITO ratio?
How can I make it work?
The action of teaching is about giving information, explaining the culture, showing experiences and values. All these things need no more than just a passionate teacher and a student willing to learn.
Some students have no alternative that to study online (because they cannot attend group lessons). They have a number of options for this, ranging from private lessons using skype (or any other videoconferencing tool) to one of the many online internet courses. The best of these have appropriate material and access to individual tutors (probably using Skype).
