Learning with ICT Tools
How computers are used to support learning.
Information and Communication Tools are equipments that are used to process data into information. They are also used for sending and receiving information. Some ICT tools are Computers, Mobile Phones, Radio and Television etc.
In recent years, ICT has turned from being a technology of communication and information to a tool for curriculum creation that supports teaching and learning.
Computers can be used in the classroom. They can help teachers to keep records of lessons and grades of all students in their class. Students can also use computers to study and do research through educational software or the World Wide Web.
Accessing Information
When students want to look for information they can use the Internet. The Internet is the largest network of computers and has a large amount of educational Information. By using search engines like Google, students can easily find articles and publications that are related to their field of study. For example, to find a particular book, go to http://books.google.com
The Television / Radio can be used to transmit educational programs for us to watch /listen in our homes. Some educational programs we can watch/listen are programs such as health and safety on HIV or other health issues.
Sharing Idea's
Students can also share ideas using ICT tools. They can create discussion forums on the Internet where they can share thoughts concerning some important issues. Students can share information via emails or on the local network in their school's computer lab. They can also do their homework using the telephone or an online instant messenger. ICT tools are very useful for sharing ideas.
Calculation
We no longer need to use our fingers to do complex calculations. Computers are the fastest tools we can use for calculations. Students who study complex mathematical problems can conveniently use the computer to solve them. The scientific calculator is a good tool for science and math students in the secondary and tertiary schools. Nowadays mobile phones have calculators on them.
Illustrations
Illustrations help to make studying more efficient because students are able to see what the teacher is really talking about. Presenting pictures, video and audio items help the students to get a clearer picture and experience what the teacher is talking about for themselves. Computers can help a teacher to share music, videos and pictures with students when teaching. This makes teaching and learning more effective.
