Elaine SzpytmaBenefits of ILT in Teaching FERL Practitioners Programme- Transforming Teaching and Learning with ILT ILT IN TEACHING AND LEARNING Slide 2 Elaine SzpytmaBenefits of ILT in Teaching FERL Practitioners Programme- Transforming Teaching and Learning with ILT What Does ILT Stand for? Information and Learning Technology It is the term used to refer to the specific set of uses to which colleges apply computer- based information technology ILT PUTS THE LEARNING IN IT! Slide 3 Elaine SzpytmaBenefits of ILT in Teaching FERL Practitioners Programme- Transforming Teaching and Learning with ILT What are the Differences Between ? IT (Information Technology) ICT (Information and Communication Technology ILT (Information and Learning Technology) Slide 4 Elaine SzpytmaBenefits of ILT in Teaching FERL Practitioners Programme- Transforming Teaching and Learning with ILT IT refers to the hardware, software and skills that surround a single stand-alone computer or laptop Slide 5 Elaine SzpytmaBenefits of ILT in Teaching FERL Practitioners Programme- Transforming Teaching and Learning with ILT ICT Machines are networked together allowing communication with others on the network and in the outside world via e-mail and the Internet. The computer is a tool for performing tasks and communicating with others. ICT is defined as the interconnection of stand-alone computers across and between institutions Slide 6 Elaine SzpytmaBenefits of ILT in Teaching FERL Practitioners Programme- Transforming Teaching and Learning with ILT ILT Is the application of IT/ICT to the core business of further education ILT puts the Learning into IT by the use of ICT to deliver learning materials/experiences and may extend to: on-line guidance assessment and recording of progress traditional/off-line learning or support Slide 7 Elaine SzpytmaBenefits of ILT in Teaching FERL Practitioners Programme- Transforming Teaching and Learning with ILT develop thinking skills support differentiation motivate learners ILT can help to: Slide 8 Elaine SzpytmaBenefits of ILT in Teaching FERL Practitioners Programme- Transforming Teaching and Learning with ILT ILT resources do not necessarily improve the quality of delivery, just as a good textbook does not necessarily make the teaching any better The availability of new types of resources and new types of interaction can satisfy different learning preferences and present alternative ways of accessing the same information The real potential of ILT is to empower practitioners to be creative with their existing resources A skilled practitioner with few IT skills can produce imaginative, creative and effective resources by focusing more on the teaching principles than on the technology Because a good practitioner is at the heart of good learning Going interactive Slide 9 Elaine SzpytmaBenefits of ILT in Teaching FERL Practitioners Programme- Transforming Teaching and Learning with ILT Display Screen Technology (DST) The collective name for software and hardware that enable practitioners to use digital resources in face-to-face sessions with groups of learners eg interactive whiteboards or similar devices (such as mimio ) plasma displays or other large monitor/television screens data projectors Slide 10 Elaine SzpytmaBenefits of ILT in Teaching FERL Practitioners Programme- Transforming Teaching and Learning with ILT Uses of DST in Teaching Practitioners can now replace the traditional blackboard or whiteboard with a more interactive focal point. By connecting the computer to one of these devices they can use DST to: give presentations demonstrate spreadsheets and data handling deliver content from web pages run multimedia and CD-ROMs explain and illustrate software. Slide 11 Elaine SzpytmaBenefits of ILT in Teaching FERL Practitioners Programme- Transforming Teaching and Learning with ILT Benefits of DST in Teaching It captures the attention of learners It makes the curriculum area come alive Learners show increased motivation Learners enjoy the interaction the technology offers Practitioners can use software, multimedia and the Internet with large groups of learners Slide 12 Elaine SzpytmaBenefits of ILT in Teaching FERL Practitioners Programme- Transforming Teaching and Learning with ILT Definitions of E-Learning Several key organisations have been working on definitions of e-learning: 'E-learning is the effective learning process created by combining digitally delivered content with (learning) support and services (The Open and Distance Learning Quality Council ) 'E-learning refers to learning activities that involve computers and networks. (The Internet and intranets are considered networks.) E-learning does not require learning materials to be delivered by computer, but computer and networks must be involved in this type of learning ( Susanna Tsai and Paulo Machado of the InkiTiki Corporation, Hawaii) Slide 13 Elaine SzpytmaBenefits of ILT in Teaching FERL Practitioners Programme- Transforming Teaching and Learning with ILT 'E-learning is learning with the help of information and communications technology tools (Post-16 E- Learning Strategy Task Force) 'DEL (distributed and electronic learning) can be represented as a spectrum ranging from Internet- supported distance learning in which the learner has limited physical contact with the tutor or other learners, to teacher-led, classroom-based activity which is interspersed with occasional computer- delivered or facilitated assignments (The LSCs Distributed and Electronic Learning Group (DELG)) Slide 14 Elaine SzpytmaBenefits of ILT in Teaching FERL Practitioners Programme- Transforming Teaching and Learning with ILT 'The use of electronic technology to deliver, support and enhance teaching and learning (Education and Learning Wales (ELWa)) Slide 15 Elaine SzpytmaBenefits of ILT in Teaching FERL Practitioners Programme- Transforming Teaching and Learning with ILT Common Factors It is a debate that is very much on going. There are at present only two common factors in all of the definitions available: that it involves the use of IT (the 'e-') that it is used for part of a developmental process (the 'learning'). Slide 16 Elaine SzpytmaBenefits of ILT in Teaching FERL Practitioners Programme- Transforming Teaching and Learning with ILT Good practice in ILT Using ILT can enable clearer understanding ILT provides differentiated learning opportunities ILT provides opportunities for learning outside the classroom ILT offers opportunities to differentiate between learners and learning styles ILT need not replace existing good practice, but should enhance what you already do Slide 17 Elaine SzpytmaBenefits of ILT in Teaching FERL Practitioners Programme- Transforming Teaching and Learning with ILT Practitioner A Currently has good teaching skills but weaker IT skills relies on face-to-face group work, role play and delivery of ideas through scenarios in paper-based activities Could add assignments based around digital images placed on the intranet to illustrate the same concepts Benefit: learners can produce these resources and they can be used flexibly by those absent from class Slide 18 Elaine SzpytmaBenefits of ILT in Teaching FERL Practitioners Programme- Transforming Teaching and Learning with ILT Practitioner B Currently has good IT skills and good subject knowledge, but delivery does not actively engage learners, as it is too dependent on paper- based handouts and OHTs Could add interactive Word functions to paper- based handouts, which could then be available for use on the intranet quizzes to allow learners to test their own progress hyperlinked on-line resources, possibly with animation to highlight key points Slide 19 Elaine SzpytmaBenefits of ILT in Teaching FERL Practitioners Programme- Transforming Teaching and Learning with ILT Practitioner C Currently delivers face to face to small groups of learners on different sites repeats the same material with each group Could place learning material on a VLE and allow interaction between learners use time saved to address individual learners problems in the face-to-face sessions Slide 20 Elaine SzpytmaBenefits of ILT in Teaching FERL Practitioners Programme- Transforming Teaching and Learning with ILT What is the FERL Practitioners Programme? The Ferl Practitioners Programme is a staff development programme.
