The computer as the teacher tool

  1. 1. The Computer as the Teacher Tool
  2. 2. Constructivism • Was introduced by Piaget (1981) AND Bruner (1990) • They gave stress to knowledge discovery of new meaning/ concepts/principles in the learning process While knowledge is constructed by the individual learner in constructivism, knowledge can also be socially constructed.
  3. 3. Social Constructivism • It is an effort to show that the construction of knowledge is governed by social, historical and cultural contexts. • The Psychologist Vygotsky stressed that learning is affected by social influences. • Dewey sees language as a medium for social coordination and adaptation. – Human learning is really human languaging that occurs when students socially share, build and agree upon meanings and knowledge.
  4. 4. The Computer’s Capability Given its present-day, speed, flexibility and sophistication, the computer can provide access to information, foster creative social knowledge-building, and enhance the communication of the achieved project package.
  5. 5. The teacher can employ the computer as a/an: • An information tool • A communication tool • A constructive tool • As co-constructive tool • A situating tool
  6. 6. Informative Tool • The computer can provide vast amount of information in various forms, such as text, graphics, sound and video. Even multimedia encyclopedias are today available on the internet. • Given the fact that the internet can serve as a channel for global communication, the computer can very well be the key tool for video teleconferencing session.
  7. 7. Constructive Tool • The computer itself can be used for manipulating information, visualizing one’s understanding, and building new knowledge.
  8. 8. Co-constructive Tool • Students can use co-constructive tools to work cooperatively and construct a shared understanding of knowledge. One way of co-construction is the use of the electronic whiteboard where students may also co- edit the same document from their homes.
  9. 9. Situating Tool • By means of virtual reality (RS) extension systems, the computer can create 3D images on display to give the user the feeling that are situated in a virtual environment. • A flight situation program is an example of a situating tool which places the user in a simulated flying environment.
  10. 10. IT in Support of Student-Centered Learning (SCL)
  11. 11. The traditional classroom • Usually arranged with neat columns and rows of student chairs • The teacher stands in front of the classroom or sit behind his/her desk
  12. 12. The SCL classrooms • Schools in the developed countries desire to gain effective, efficient and economic administration and instruction have adopted the use of ICT. • The students have now become active learner rather than passive learners • Learners can interact with other learners, demonstrate independence and self-aware in their learning process.
  13. 13. The new school classroom environment is characterized by student individually or in groups: • Performing computer word processing for text and graphs presentation • Preparing power point presentation • Searching for information on the Internet • Brainstorming on ideas, problems and project plans as needed.
  14. 14. The Internet and Education
  15. 15. Internet • Also called as NET • It is the largest and far-flung network system- of-all-systems. • It is not really a network but a loosely organized collection of about 25,000 networks accessed by computers on the planet.
  16. 16. TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) • Standardized protocol (set of rules for exchanging data) Server • a computer or computer program that manages access to a centralized resource or service in a network. • Originally developed and still subsidized by the United States government • Connects not only commercial, industrial, scientific establishments but all other sectors including education and its libraries, campuses and computer centers.
