ETL 682 Assignment 1: The Roles of Teachers and Learners
Transcript of ETL 682 Assignment 1: The Roles of Teachers and Learners
Addressing Student Needs "The Internet represents the biggest technological aid helping people to learn in 500 years, according to many educators" (2007, p.9). Anything you can test!
Technology has streamlined this process for learners, resulting in several key advantages. Technology is changing the way teachers need to approach a class and individual students. The Roles of Teachers and Learners "In the 21st century, online education will constitute 50% of all learning and education" (Draves, 2007, p.5). Why is This? "What the Internet is doing is exploding the traditional method of teaching into two parts - cognitive learning, which can be accomplished better with online learning; and affective learning, which can be accomplished better in a small group discussion setting" (2007, p.9). 1. A learner can learn during her or his peak learning times 2. A learner can learn at her or his own speed. 3. A learner can focus on specific content areas. 4. A learner can test himself daily. "Learners can acquire the data and facts faster using the Internet" (2007, p.11). 5. A learner can interact more with the teacher. "In a fully online class, it is only through online discussion that the instructor can come to know the students, and how they think" (Bender, 2012 p.32). '"If you decide to adapt your class to to match the array of cognitive styles among your students, you could do so either by varying your teaching style (i.e. by providing a mix of cooperative and individual learning), enhancing your teaching materials (i.e. by providing more diagrams alongside written lectures), or both (Bender, 2012, p.33). Teachers must "design and facilitate an online class in such a way as to grab a student's attention and retain it" (2012, p.30). Providing encouraging feedback "stresses the positive aspects of the student's achievement before mentioning suggestions for improvement, as this reinforcement further increases motivation" (2012, p.32). This is especially important online "where tone of voice and facial expression are absent...critical words come across sounding more harsh than intended" (2012, p.32). Summary Technology and Learners
Provides individualized options... for time efficiency and management, for intellectual and emotional safety, for various styles of communication and instruction, and frequent feedback through daily assessment on specific subject areas. Technology and Teachers Requires the use of technology to individualize learning for each student, to engage learners and find ways to offer encouragement and motivation, to provide new and varied opportunities for discussions among students and between the teacher and individual students, and... to support student learning through the use of innovative materials, frequent feedback, and positive relationship building.
