LESSON 2 The Role of Technology in Delivering the Curriculum

The role of technology in curriculum implementation shall now be treated.

The role of technology finds its place at

the onset of curriculum implementation, namely at the stage of instructional planning.

In a teaching-learning situation, there is the

critical need to provide the learners information that forms a coherent whole.
Otherwise, learning may end up haphazard and in the end ineffective.
A systematic approach to instructional planning is, therefore, necessary.

And in instructional planning, each lesson should have a clear idea of general specific goals, instructional objectives, content, activities, media, materials, assessment and evaluation on how objectives have been achieved.
In the choice of instructional media, technology

comes into play.

Identify instructional goals

Identify objectives

Plan instructional activities

Identify assess instructional media technology

Choose an instructional media

Analyze learners

Revise instruction

Assess Instruction

Implement instruction

Instructional media may also be referred

to as media technology or learning technology, or simply technology

Technology plays a crucial role in delivering instruction to learners.

Technology offers various tools of

learning and these range from nonprojected and projected media from which the teacher can choose, depending on what he sees fir with the intended instructional setting.

In the process, what ensues is objective-

matching where the teacher decides on what media or technology to use to help achieve the set learning objectives

Non-projected media
Real objects Models Field trips Kits Printed materials

Projected media

Visual board Audio materials

transparencies Opaque projection Slides Filmstrip Films Video, VCD, DVD Computer/ multimedia presentations

1. Practicality
2. Appropriateness in relation to the learners 3. Activity /suitability

4. Objective-matching

It can easily be observed that technological

innovation in the multifarious fields of commerce, science and education, is fast developing such that it is difficult to foresee the technological revolution in the millennium, inclusive of educational changes.

However, technological changes in education will make its impact on the delivery of more effective, efficient and humanizing teaching-and-learning

Three current trends

Paradigm shift from teacher-centered to studentcentered approach to learning. Broadening realization that education is not simply a delivery of facts and information, but an educative process of cultivating the cognitive, affective, psychomotor, and much more the contemplative intelligence of the learners of a new age. Increase in the use of new information and communication technology or ICT.

Already at the turn of the past century, ICT in

its various forms and manifestations has made its increasing influence on education, and it is expected that the trend will speed up even more rapidly. Propelling this brisk development is the spread of the micro-computers affordable not only to cottage industries, businesses, and homes but also schools.

Upgrading the equality of teaching-and-

learning in schools Increasing the capability of the teacher to effectively inculcate learning, and for students to gain mastery of lessons and courses

Broadening the delivery of education outside schools through non-traditional approaches to formal and informal learning, such as Open Universities and lifelong learning to adult learners
Revolutionizing the use of technology to boost educational paradigm shifts that give importance to student-centered and holistic learning.
