Classroom technologies need catalysts of change
Implementation of digital learning technology is gradually becoming a norm in schools. Investors and heads of institutions are now more willing to invest in a digital learning system. Training of teachers, therefore to ensure that classroom technologies yield positive results is essential.
Of course, technology is never a substitute for good teaching. Good teachers need to be trained to integrate their pedagogy and content knowledge to impart skills of 21st century education, in the way that the new generation prefers to learn.
Some pertinent questions for promoting technology in education are:
- How will the teaching faculty adapt to technology-enabled education?
- How to motivate faculty to change from the traditional teaching mode to contemporary digital teaching?
- How much training would be required to ensure that they use it effectively in teaching?
- Will the use of technology in teaching actually improve the grades of low performers?
