The Technology has changed the world of Teaching and Learning How we use makes the Difference

Effects of Technology on Learning and Teaching:
Dr.T.V.Rao MD

What the expereince teaches us


Why use technology?
 Interactivity
 Content delivery/revision  Managing learning and resources

 Collaboration
 Communication  Sense of cohort  Variety of teaching and learning preferences  Formative and summative assessment
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 3

How does this help?
 Allows students more control of their own learning
 Allows lecturers to guide more, teach less  Allows student to build up knowledge, and become part of the teaching process  Can provide some really engaging learning experiences  Teachers can provide “scaffolding” and safety nets

 “At risk” students can be identified more quickly
 Collaborating can be very well supported
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 4

Integrating Internet-based Technology into Teaching/Learning
Reasons for using technology in education:  provides opportunities for more learner-centered instruction;  permits instruction to be contextualized;  allows students to explore, make mistakes, and learn from their errors;  leads to more active and interactive modes of instruction; and  results naturally in greater collaboration, cooperation, and small group work

(Gillespie 1998; Kearsley and Shneiderman 1998; Petraglia 1998).

Best Practices in Higher Education
1. Good Practice Encourages Contacts Between Students and Faculty 2. Good Practice Develops Reciprocity and Cooperation Among Students 3. Good Practice Uses Active Learning Techniques 4. Good Practice Gives Prompt Feedback

What technological Teaching
 For some it might mean using PowerPoint or student classroom response systems in lectures; others may think of podcasting lectures; and still others may think of specific disciplinary applications, such as designing Web-based interactive learning modules and simulations to teach skills and concepts
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 7

Why we need Technology
Technology ushers in fundamental structural changes that can be integral to achieving significant improvements in productivity. Used to support both teaching and learning,
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 8

Technology infuses
 Technology infuses classrooms with digital learning tools, such as computers and hand held devices; expands course offerings, experiences, and learning materials
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 9

 Blended learning opportunities incorporate both faceto-face and online learning opportunities. The degree to which online learning takes place, and the way it is integrated into the curriculum, can vary across schools.
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 10

Blended learning

Strategy of blending
 The strategy of blending online learning with school-based instruction is often utilized to accommodate students’ diverse learning styles and to enable them to work before or after school in ways that are not possible with fulltime conventional classroom instruction
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 11

Blended Learning

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Instructional technology
 Instructional technology (IT) has become an important part of teaching and learning within the classroom as well as working with fully online environments. Resources for educating and assisting faculty about the best practices for using technology has become crucial
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 13

Technology influences Teaching
 Using technology to enhance teaching and learning practices in the classroom is becoming common place. Students constantly interact with technologies such as ipods, mobile phones, the internet and social networking tools outside the classroom and have an expectation that these technologies will also support their learning in the classroom.
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 14

Technology felicitates only
Learning is seen as essentially a social process, requiring communication among learner, teacher and others. This social process cannot effectively be replaced by technology, although technology may facilitate it.
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 15

Learner-Centered Teaching
(Are we as teachers losing our “power!”)
Includes the learner in decisions about curriculum, instruction, & assessment

 Acknowledges, respects and accommodates differences in background, abilities, styles, and experiences Treats learners as co-creators in the teaching and learning process.
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 16

(Barr & Tagg, 1995)

Power Point

1.Be Simple or

simplify difficult material
2. Use it as a

supplement, NOT the entire presentation
3. Focus on

Learning, NOT Technology
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 17

More Important Power Point TIPS
 Humans see graphics first, then text  Keep information in a logical flow  6 points or Less per slide/page  Use large type Consistently – Minimum 24 point  Employ Other Media/Board/Overheads if Possible
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 18

Technology Integration
 Why Integrate? (pair and share)

“Technologies do not bring about revolutions, people do.”
-Denise Murray, Director of NCELTR, Macquarie University  New questions:
 How do students learn?

 How can teachers help students learn better?

Infusing Technology into Classrooms How is technology used as a tool to
enhance education?


 ORGANIZATION/MANAGEMENT Expand and Maximize Learning View “Favorite Online Resources”
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 21

Technology Integration
The goal of technology integration is to use technology seamlessly in the classroom so that the technology itself is invisible in support of learning a standards based curriculum.  Employing technology provides a variety of new ways to learn, and in the process, fosters independent thinking, problem solving, and collaborative learning. Dr.T.V.Rao MD 22

I-Implement, Integrate, Infuse
 Seamless technology
 Participate in technology based instruction  Storyboard of lesson plan

 Scaffolding, templates
 How to, step by step  Infuse resources: funding, software, equipment, people, training, supplies and students.  Allow flexibility and role shift.
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 23


Start with a lesson you are very familiar with and have taught before

2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

Focus on the learning objective
Make it interactive and fun Problem based activities will engage and make relevant for students. Do it yourself FIRST (see one, do one, teach one) Build relationships Talk about copyright often! Know the standards (state, NETS, Information Literacy Standards)

9. 10.

Revise teaching style to accommodate technology (adaptation)
Use peer observations and online video demonstrations as often as possible to learn more! Tap into your students’ creativity

Integrating Internet-based Technology into Teaching/Learning
Adult Learner Success Indicators: increased number of learners incorporating use of education technology as a regular part of their learning and parenting applications; increased satisfaction level of learners with the level of support for using education technology; increased opportunities for children and spouses of all adult learners to gain experience with computer technologies and develop technological skills;

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Four Key Areas in Technological Teaching
 Increased learner motivation  Advanced topics mastered  Students acting as experts  Better outcomes on standardized tests
