A modernized education is imperative because students learn better with the use of technology. In order to succeed in the field of education, students must have a sense of today’s fast paced society. With the use of advanced technology in the classroom, students will be able to apply acquired material to the real world. While the old ways of teaching
Learning a new language has many benefits; career advancement, bridging communication gaps, and strengthening life skills. “What theory implies, quite simply, is that language acquisition, first or second, occurs when comprehension of real messages occurs, and when the acquire is not ‘on the defensive’” wrote Steven D. Krashner (1981)
The impact on technology in the classroom has opened many new windows for educators. Technology can be used in various ways while working in a classroom, whether that be a first grade classroom or a class of juniors in high school. Technology can help our students widen their knowledge. When planning lessons, it is important that teachers incorporate some types of technology. When technology is used in your lessons, the students will be able to achieve their learning goals. While using technology in the classrooms, teachers and students are able to connect with others around the world, making technology a useful tool in building your classroom into a global learning community. The use of technology has been able to enhance and individualize learning as well. While using technology it is important to remember to connect the content being and the specific learning goals, otherwise the use of technology won’t be as helpful during the lesson. The use of technology will supplement instruction, allowing students to achieve content learning goals. When implementing technology into your classroom, it is important that you incorporate these aspects into your planning and teaching.
Technology has drastically affected the traditional methods of teaching. Teachers these days have a much wider range of options to use in their teaching. It wasn’t very long ago when the only type of technology in the classroom was an overhead projector. It is not unusual now for a classroom to have a television and V.C.R. mounted on the wall for regular viewing of educational videos, or to broadcast current events. In some schools assemblies are no longer necessary because the principal broadcasts announcements via the network of televisions in every classroom. Teachers also have the use of projection screens hooked up to classroom computers, for slide shows, and presentations. Instead of wasting time writing notes on a blackboard, teacherscan now prepare a PowerPoint presentation on their home computer, bring it into class and project it for note taking. It is much easier for teachers to help and instruct students on an individual level with the help of the internet. Personal
Many popular theories of second language acquisition have been analyzed throughout history. The socialization of L2 learners, their present emotional state that is present at time of acquisition, as well as the comprehensible input and output with the use of scaffolding play a major role in second language acquisition. Let us also not forget the importance of written expression as well as reading comprehension with these L2 learners. Each play a role in language development. However, I believe that in acquiring a language, one must use a variety of techniques that work together to create a balance within the learning environment. Furthermore, all L2 learners learn differently and so a variety of resources will need to be used based on the ability of each student. There are many theories that have been developed by highly qualified experts in the field on linguistics. However, I will address those areas that I agree with as I present my personal theories on second language acquisition.
The advancement in technology is becoming a great benefit in the classroom. More students are learning to use their creative side, which is encouraging individual learning and growth. Through technology, students find it is easier for them to work together with others. The group members can join together over the internet and they don’t have to be in the same room. As there continues to be new improvements in the various types of technology, it is helping the student prepare for the real world.
Education has always been an universal matter of discussion for those who teach and and even for those who learn. This discussion has now become urgent especially since the advent of new technologies and their implications for education. Today there are many studies, ideas and experiences ongoing in education.
Technology and learning are becoming more and more hand in hand as technology gets improved and learning styles are figured out about students. There are a couple of learning theories that teachers need to know to provide students with the best learning situations to make sure that students are learning everything that they need, so they can be ready and successful today and are able to go into the workforce and be a benefit to future employers. This paper we are going to discuss how technology is going to help these student with technology.
Education has evolved by leaps and bounds since the first appearance of the modern pencil in 1795. Today’s classroom’s are utilizing laptops, cellphones, tablets and multiple social media platforms.
The topic I am going to focus on throughout this paper is how education has changed over time. Over the many years of education changing, technology has had a great impact on how we learn and how teachers go about teaching. The three main topics I am going to focus on throughout this paper is how technology has taken over, what new teaching and learning styles we have, and whether or not technology has really helped with education.
In the next three years I hope to see technology more evenly spread across the learning spectrum. Currently the core classes are the ones bursting with technological capabilities, which allows our teachers to reach the 21st century learner by being able to connect with them at their level. The 21st century uses technology for everything; they have digital calendars, notes, and they visit one another through virtual facetime sessions. We need to adapt our teaching styles to be innovative with technology so we can teach our students the timeless skills otherwise known as 21st century skills. We need to teach to the unknown, so that our students can be prepared for their
The promotion of foreign language education in America’s primary schools is vital to a child’s learning process, cultural awareness, and future in the workforce. Although they are scarce, there are some elementary schools across the United States that incorporate foreign language courses in the curriculum. This is most common in areas bordering other countries and relative to the language spoken, as French is taught most often along the border of Canada and Spanish along the border of Mexico. The process of learning another language is beneficial the learning process of all subjects because the methods used combine teaching procedures present in every class. The broad learning capacity gained from learning a foreign language and the
Many popular theories of second language acquisition have been analyzed throughout history. The socialization of L2 learners, their present emotional state that is present at the time of acquisition, as well as the comprehensible input and output with the use of scaffolding play a major role in second language acquisition. Kirsten Hummel states, “The one most effective way to increase L2 competence was by exposure to ‘comprehensible input’.” (Hummel, 2014, p. 73) Let us also not forget the importance of written expression as well as reading comprehension with these L2 learners. Each plays a role in language development. However, I believe that to acquire language one must use a variety of techniques that work together to create a balance within the learning environment. Furthermore, all L2 learners acquire language differently and so using a variety of resources that are based on the ability of each student is neccesary. There are many theories that have been developed by highly qualified experts in the field of linguistics. However, I will address those areas that I agree with as I present my personal theories on second language acquisition.
Rethink my initial written assignment in the first week (see Appendix A), I have a further development of initial reflections that modern teachers should have educational ideas that keep pace with the times. Based on my past learning experience, teachers usually use blackboards and PPTs to teach on the podium. Students take notes on their books and notebooks. However, through studying this Unit, I found that digital technology is becoming increasingly popular and affects all aspects of life. A discussion area was added to moddle this semester, which greatly facilitated discussion between students and teachers. Student and faculty contact is a good way for students to learn more knowledge from each other through using laptop. Students can share their opinion and learning resources on forum, they can also post some questions they did not understand in class, the teacher and some students can give some suggestions or different opinions. In the classroom, the teacher can also use the computer to play teaching videos for us. In the group discussion, we also use laptop. This saves time for our study and allows us more time to communicate with
As the traditional classroom has been evolving the educational landscape has also been altered with technology advancement over the years. Today we learn through using various teaching methods, as we have come to rely more on technology to enhance our learning experience rather than doing the traditional method of just sitting in the classroom and having the teacher be the sage on the stage.
