Information Technology in Education Sector
The impact of technology is and can be extremely significant as far as the education sector is concerned. Many institutions have adopted IT inside their campus . There are needs to still extend the service in the Education sector, for instance, Online Education has become a global hit but still, many students do not conceive it as a professional model of education. Implementing appropriate technology is under the discretion of the institution and their requirement.
- Information technology (IT) has played a major role in extending the grasp of the education sector. More people who are educated, can now access career trainings and even degree courses online.
- Technology is playing an increasing role in education. As technology advances, it is used to benefit students of all ages in the learning process.
- Technology used in the classroom helps students adsorb the material. For example, since some people are visual learners, projection screens linked to computers can allow students to see their notes instead of simply listening to a teacher deliver a lecture.
- Software can be used to supplement class curriculum. The programs provide study questions, activities, and even tests and quizzes for a class that can help students continue learning outside the classroom.
- Technology has also become part of many curriculums, even outside of computer and technology classes. Students use computers to create presentations and use the Internet to research topics for papers and essays.
- Students also learn to use the technology available to them in computer and tech classes. This ensures that after graduation they will be able to use the technology in a work setting, which may put them ahead of someone who didn’t have access to a particular technology or software in their own school setting.
Teachers should be open to introduce technology into the classroom to improve and innovate their teaching practice.
- With the widespread availability of student databases that are able to track individual progress, teachers are encouraged to identify learning objectives and differentiate instruction based on the needs of their students.
- Whenever teachers attempt to present instruction using technology, they should do so using a channel that is relevant to the objectives, the learning style, mode and the technology selected.
- When evaluating technology-based instruction, there needs to be appropriate evaluation techniques that are in line with the methods of instruction, objectives and the technology.
- Teachers can design follow-up activities when using technology to evaluate students’ learning and the role technology played in that process.
