The information found on the networked computer must be sorted out, and its meaning needs to be negotiated with others. This medium can also be used to resolve problems between class periods. Moreover, the homework could be structured in such a way that the student can progress from simpler to more challenging activities by means of hyperlinks. Students get to search about that particular topic they did not understand and get the detail about the topic. In this way, students can get involved in class discussions in a manner not possible in the classroom. But also, students should be trained to use the available technology efficiently. From closed to open classes: Telelearning and the management of isolation in Newfoundland and Labrador.
The same was true of instructional rooms in those schools. Teachers Colllege Record, 93 1 , 115-136. The Internet can act as a motivating tool for many students. Also using knowledge in different settings give a better understanding of the different shades of meaning of the concepts involved in a giving learning situation. Also using knowledge in different settings give a better understanding of the different shades of meaning of the concepts involved in a giving learning situation. Technology skills are not taught in and of themselves, but in the context of curricular activities in which peer learning is highly noticeable.
The structure of a learning activity, the way it is embodied into the student's experience, is more important than the features of the technology itself 6. Whatever I choose, half of the students will be happy, the rest including me will be unhappy. Learning artefacts Students create learning artefacts. Toward a knowledge base for school learning. This interaction may be achieved either through face to face interaction which is very much possible even outside the class hour or as you suggested the student may interact using the discussion board.
Pedagogical benefits When a teacher looks for pedagogical benefits, he or she must be made aware that working with the networked computer as a tool is of a major importance, and that it is a tool whose use must be at all time subordinated to the user's needs. In addition to designing Internet based lesson plans, we may have to surf the Internet to download lesson plans and adapt them to support the curriculum objectives or visit sites to select those appropriate for classes. The learning occurring this way is Peer Learning which occurs through active discussions among learners. Review of Educational Research, 53 4 , 445-459. The information and communication technology in education serve as an equalizing agent since a lot of students can have access to it and work together as a group.
Therefore, to downplay the role of the teacher in the education of the knowledge worker of tomorrow the formation and cultivation of understanding episteme, knowing-that and practical judgment phronesis, knowing-why and to overplay that of the skillful production of artefacts as well as that of the expert mastery of objectified tasks techne, knowing-how , would be here ill-advised. A poll result conducted by Global Strategy in April 1997 shows that this is the only way that the Internet adds value to the learning process. If I have around 20 students, I can observe their body language, I can also walk around and see what they are doing, or missing. Toomey and Ketterer Modern learning technologies have undergone a metamorphosis stressed two Australian researchers, Toomey and Ketterer 1995 , from teacher-proof instruments for providing instruction to valuable resources that young people can use on their own terms to help them learn. As mentioned before, technology can help to encourage active participation in the classroom which also is a very important factor for increased knowledge retention. Through and , we help developing countries in the Caribbean, Africa, and Asia go green and develop solutions to local problems. It could provide continuity of learning to a student when he or she cannot physically access school.
For example, data from inaccessible places eg outer space , inaccessible times eg overnight , from both overseas and nationally on demand without having to physically go anywhere or data at very precise time intervals. The cards are available in hard copy or can be accessed online. Every new technology brings with it positive and negative impact. Having an education takes many tolls on a person with a degree and the impact it makes. Technology can encourage collaboration with students in the same classroom, same school and even with other classrooms around the world.
Schools with higher level of e-maturity show a rapid increase in performances in scores compared to those with lower level. Long-term undertaking Assessing how lifelong learning skills are acquired will take time. It is also the appropriate way to face the challenge of meeting the nation's demand for knowledge workers see the quantitative argument advocated by Drucker, 1997. To rely only on the latter however, is rather naïve when one considers that most classrooms are still run in a traditional way. Learners may collaborate in interpreting data and information over the network, at times independently of time and space Riel, 1995. Because they didn't have an infrastructure that supported them. Note: Schools enrolling international students must ensure that no more than 25% of the student's total course is undertaken by distance or online learning.
While the ones expected at an early stage require connectivity and basic technical skills, the ones expected at a later stage require a shift in the role of the teacher and the learner s. They play a vital role in any field and aid industrial processes, medical industry, farming, mining, banking infect in all industries. Even though it will cost some money to buy all those things, it will make our life easier especially for students. What's the biggest problem that needs to be addressed again in cklass? Teachers' increased effort to develop interdisciplinary units and lessons. In addition to posting class lessons and homework, we can have a class bulletin board on web site. In this way, students can get involved in class discussions in a manner not possible in the classroom. Role of teacher and learner The above mentioned benefits are of great importance to a knowledge society.
