TECH­NOL­OGY PART­NER IN LEARN­ING

Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! -

JO ABBEY DUCUT-ESTRELLA

We know for a fact that we are now in the modern world of tech­nol­ogy. That means that as an ed­u­ca­tor/ teacher we should be flex­i­ble in terms of us­ing those kinds of tech­nol­ogy. We are now in the new trends of the cur­ricu­lum in ed­u­ca­tion. Com­puter is one of the prod­ucts of our new tech­nol­ogy that we used in teach­ing our stu­dents. In us­ing those com­put­ers, our les­son will be more ef­fec­tive and the learn­ing of our stu­dents is more en­joy­able than us­ing the tra­di­tional method of teach­ing. As part of be­ing a teacher we should know how to make a power point pre­sen­ta­tion, down­load­ing videos and mu­sic through other web­sites, mak­ing our re­ports by us­ing Mi­crosoft ex­cel like com­put­ing the grades of our stu­dents and many more. We can say that us­ing com­put­ers have ad­van­tages and dis­ad­van­tages. But we should fo­cus on the im­por­tance of th­ese com­put­ers and what they can com­put­ers con­trib­ute to us. As a teacher we should ad­vice our stu­dents to use the com­puter for learn­ing pur­poses.

The main ad­van­tages of us­ing th­ese com­put­ers is the abil­ity of shar­ing in­for­ma­tion be­tween users and the abil­ity of au­to­ma­tion be­cause we can do our work eas­ier and faster. And of course the in­ter­net con­nec­tion gives you ac­cess in dif­fer­ent web­sites for ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion and ap­pli­ca­tion. The in­ter­net also al­lows us to com­mu­ni­cate to other peo­ple. Us­ing our com­put­ers in terms of learn­ing process can helps us to be­come com­puter lit­er­ate which is al­most ubiq­ui­tously nec­es­sary in em­ploy­ment and life in gen­eral nowa­days. With the used of th­ese com­put­ers and the in­ter­net of­fer a fast range of re­sources and in spread­ing the process of in­form­ing our stu­dents. Be­cause teach­ing our stu­dents through the com­put­ers are largely au­dio-vis­ual method of teach­ing them, which is highly pro­duc­tive and en­gag­ing. But some of the prob­lems that we en­counter in us­ing the com­put­ers comes from in­equal­ity in terms of the dis­tri­bu­tion of tech­nol­ogy be­cause not all of our stu­dents have the same ac­cess to com­put­ers or the in­ter­net thus, their po­ten­tials leads to dis­trac­tion.
