ICT as an aid and not a substitute

By suri.harminder | Apr 15, 2015

ICT is not be all and end all of learning. I feel that content should be made simple and than ICT may be used as an aid rather than a substitute . Pl comment

My personal experience with smart class modules has been not so encouraging. I find them of use when I do not feel like teaching but have to engage students somehow!!!

The best use of ICT can be when students get to play around it. Ideally this should be done in groups and the teacher can create tasks which will help them explore. There are few schools which takes advantage of this. To do this you need not only infrastructure but also teachers who are both capable and enthusiastic about using ICT and devising explorations for students.

Otherwise if ICT is used only by the teacher then I feel it further dis-empowers the student in the long run unless they can revisit as and when they need/choose to.

Definitely ICT never becomes a substitute to teacher. But it is a strong teaching learning aid for teachers and students. It makes things easy for teachers and students. But the problem is, the content we are using in ICT aided classes is designed by experts of IT sector, but not by the experts of Education sector. If teachers involve in the preparation of ICT aided classes content then it will be most meaningful and useful. Mean while teachers should well aware of ICT aided class room teaching process. Then only they can execute it properly. And finally it should be a part of teaching and learning, but it should not be the whole of teaching and learning.

मानव एक जीवित उपादान है। शिक्षक हो या छात्र दोनों ही इसमें सम्मिलित हैं प्रोद्योगिकी कक्षाध्यापन को बोधगम्य,रोचक और प्रभावपूर्ण तो बनाती है किंतु उस अंतःक्रिया को जन्म नहीं दे सकती जो प्रत्यक्ष कक्षाध्यापन के दौरान अपनेआप उपजती है यही अंतःक्रिया मानव-व्यक्तित्व का निर्माण करती है ।
आवश्यकता इस बात की है कि इसका प्रयोग मात्र साधन के रूप में किया जाए।
