2. Digital Technology
Digital technology is a technology wherein the devices uses binary strings (1 and 0) for information processing.
The number 1 represents true/on and the number 0/off represents false.
These numbersrepresentsdata using a number of certain sequence.
For example: A =01000001.
3. Types of Digital Technology Used In Education
Productivity Tools
Instructional Software
Computer-based Learning Technologies and Instruction
General Reference
Research Tools
Subject-Specific CD-ROMs
4. Productivity Tools
Productivity tools areprograms that are specifically created to be used by professionals specializing in a specific field.
These productivity tools often helps the individuals do certain tasks.
Common examples includephoto-editing software, simulation software, statistical software, etc.
5. Productivity Tools and Education
Creation of materials
Archiving purposes
New teaching methods are introduced.
6. Instructional Software
Instructional software are types of software that assists in the instruction of the students.
They generally provide the students the information regarding the lesson and is always followed-up with an assessment.
7. Advantages of Instructional Software
Provides a new learning experience.
Allows independent learning.
More accurate progress-tracking system on the student side.
8. Types of Instructional Software
Programs that are created to handle certain tasks.
They normally include productivity tools.
Examples include Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, etc.
9. Types of Instructional Software
They provide activities and challenges in order to reinforce their skills and learning.
After the activities, they often receive the results.
An example is the ECS Keyboard and Master the Facts: Multiplication.
10. Types of Instructional Software
These software provide the students the lessons which may have or not have yet been studied earlier by the learners.
They have a pre-test, post-test and some activities.
An example is Auslan Sign Language Tutorial System.
11. Types of Instructional Software
These software provide the learners a digital representation of a real object.
They teach the learners while providing an accurate model of the topic.
An example is Infinite Physics Simulator.
12. Types of Instructional Software
Instructional Games
They provide interactive learning by applying certain game concepts on the instruction.
An example isThe Magic School BusSeries.
13. Types of Instructional Software
Programs that tries to assess a students skills in analyzing and solving data and or problems.
Analysis, critical thinking, logic and reasoning is emphasized.
An example is StressAlyzer.
14. Types of Instructional Software
Utilizes the use of images, motion clips, audio and text.
They provide a rich experience of learning.
An example isMicrosoft Encarta.
15. Types of Instructional Software
Teacher Utilities
Software used by instructors for non-instructional purposes.
They handle tasks such as record-keeping, evaluation, class administration, etc.
Examples include the PNU-Enrollment System and Head Master.
16. Computer-based Instruction and Learning
They are computers that are designed to teach students.
They can be hardware- and software-based.
They can keep track of a students progress.
They can provide a simulated training for the students.
The other term for this term is eLearning or Electronic Learning
The basis for Distance Education.
17. Advantages of Computer-Based Instruction
Performance increase
Skills development for the modern world
18. Assessment of Computer-based Instruction
Target audience
Difficulty of Use
Hardware Limitations
19. Types of Computer-Based Instruction
Computer-based Learning
Refers to the use of computers in a learning environment.
Further, classrooms applying this technique use computers as a primary tool for education.
20. Types of Computer-Based Instruction
Computer-based Training
Computer-accessible materials used for training of the students.
Includes computer-operated simulators.
These materials encourage self-learning.
Has two kinds: 1.) Computer-based and 2.) Web-based
21. 22. Types of Computer-Based Instruction
Computer-supported Collaborative Learning
These are materials that facilitate communication and cooperation between students and teachers.
They utilize the computers network resources and the Internet.
23. Types of Computer-Based Instruction
Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL)
Any learning method that utilizes technological resources falls under this category.
They have the advantage of being more interactive, cheaper and convenience.
24. General Reference
General reference materials are academic programs which provide learning materials similar to books.
They often include multimedia encyclopedias, dictionary and thesaurus.
There are two types: user-generated (e.g., Wikipedia) and traditional (e.g., Encarta)
25. 26. 27. Research Tools
Research tools are resources mainly used for retrieving information from several sources.
Most of these research tools use the Internet to search information.
They generally include search engines, wikis, blogs, internet archives, etc.
28. Subject-Specific CD-ROMs
Subject-specific CD-ROMs are compact discs that contain instructional software regarding a particular topic.
They are often included as companion CDs for books.
They tend to have a much broader scope compared to digital encyclopedias.
They also provide rich multimedia content similar to those in multimedia encyclopedias.
29. How does Digital Technology Help in Education?
It creates a new learning environment.
It allows obtaining and manipulating information.
Provides a way for new teaching strategies.
It can easily keep track of students achievements.
It can serve as a repository of older educational materials for future use.
It can make learning interactive.
Enhances accessibility to students.
30. Follow-up Question
Are we ready for digital education technology? Why and why not?
31. Thank YouAndGod Bless!
