1 Science & Technology in Education

2 Aim To acquaint the participants with the dynamics and role of Science and Technology with special reference to Education.

3 Objectives At the end of this session you will be able:   To know the significant revolution in education sector through technology   To identify the various technologies and their use in educational arena   To know the efficacy of Technology in the learning process

4 No Definition of Science … A carpenter, a school teacher, and scientist were traveling by train through Scotland when they saw a black sheep through the window of the train. "Aha," said the carpenter with a smile, "I see that Scottish sheep are black." "Hmm," said the school teacher, "You mean that some Scottish sheep are black." "No," said the scientist glumly, "All we know is that there is at least one sheep in Scotland, and that at least one side of that one sheep is black.”

5 Science is an intellectual activity carried on by humans that is designed to discover information about the natural world in which humans live and to discover the ways in which this information can be organized into meaningful patterns. Dr. Sheldon Gottlieb

6 Technology is a gift of God. After the gift of life it is perhaps the greatest of God's gifts. It is the mother of civilizations, of arts and of sciences. Freeman Dyson

7 Science and Technology   Science: Acquiring Knowledge through ‘Scientific Method’   Technology: Applied Science   Sci & Tech: Indivisible pair; Interchangeable   Knowledge and Usage of Tools and Crafts

8 Why Technology?   Assistive, Enhances Learning   Conducive to All Learning Styles/Approaches   Visual Learners   Auditory Learners   Kinesthetic Learners   Attention Grabbing   Broadened Scope   Library without Walls   Less Teachers, More Campuses   Online Teaching (Video Conferencing)

9 Types of Technology with Reference to Education   Audio Visual Aids   Multimedia   Overhead Projector   Recording Devices   Computer   Deta storage & Portability   Cyber Aids   Internet   E-brary (Search Engines : Jstor, Ebscohost, etc)   OPAC (Online Public Access Catalogue)   Learning Software (s)   On-line Teaching and Conferencing   Blogs of Experts   E-Examination   Assistive Technology   Braille   Voice Detection Software   Digital Dictaphone (Visually impaired & Suffering from Dyslexia)   SMS/ Texting (Deaf Sts)   etc

10 Computers, Internet Technology & Teachers   It has made easier for the teachers to render knowledge and for the students to grasp it   The Computer Technology is used to add a fun- element to education   Internet has endowed education with interactivity   Computers offer an interactive audio-visual media   Power-Point presentations and animation software can be used to render information to the students in an interactive manner

11 Technology in Schools – a leap towards success   It makes learning an enjoyable activity, thus inviting greater interest from the kids   The admin processes, the official procedures of school can be simplified by the means of technology   The school could have a library system, which by the utilization of technology can be maintained in an efficient manner   Attendance records of the pupils and teachers can be maintained by means of a student database

12 …   School can host a website of its own holding information about the school   There can be a decreased use of paper in bringing most of the school office work in an e-format

13 Studies have shown …   Children conversant with technology show improvements in their writing, reading and math skills   Technology has also contributed to the decrease in drop out rates, improvement in student attendance and enhancement in their learning abilities (HANDOUTS)

14 Assistive Technology

15 Visual Impairments   Screen Reader Software   Relay back to you, what you are typing   Magnification Software Products enlarge a particular part of a computer screen   Closed Circuit Camera Systems can magnify print and text and then display an enlarged version on a television or computer screen   Stickers can be put onto standard keyboard keys that either present the letters and numbers as Braille or simply increase the size of the characters.

16 Motor and Dexterity Impairments   Speech Recognition Technology   On-Screen Keyboard (you only needs a mouse to select characters on the screen)   Predictive Text (help increase the rate of typing - after typing two or three letters, you are given a selection of words to choose from)   Devices are available that take the place of keyboards but are smaller and need less effort to press the keys

17

18 Hearing Impairments   Visual notifications and text

19 Technology & Early Education   Young Students can internalize the abstract concept through visual images   Conducive in Language (s) Acquisition   Technology introduces playful learning   Cartoons   Movies   Video Games   etc   Computer Technology enhances learning

20 Technology & Higher Education   Recorded Lectures   Contact with Scholars worldwide   Software   Database Software   Spell + Grammar Check Software   Plagiarism Detector   Access to Libraries Worldwide

21 Technology which allows Hawking to speak   Ground-breaking Theorist   By the late 1970s, ALS had ravaged Stephen Hawking's ability to swallow and breathe   An operation which saved his life but took away his voice   By flicking a few fingers of one hand, he manages his surroundings

22         References
