…we preach practical education
To expose students and teachers to educational resources through IT.
Unveiling the great potentialities to the world.
In order to use technology effectively, educators need to be trained in using technology and they need to develop a good understanding of it. Technology is used to enhance learning therefore it is important for educators to be comfortable using it to ensure that students get the full advantages of educational technology.
Technology training appears to focus mainly on technology knowledge and skills while overlooking the relationships between technology, pedagogy, and content. As a result, teachers learn about “cool” stuff, but they still have difficulty applying it for their students’ learning. Teachers need opportunities to practice effective technology integration strategies in supportive contexts during technology courses, technology-integrated methods courses, and field experiences.
Teachers and students education programs can facilitate improvements not only in students’ technology skills but also in their beliefs and intentions regarding integrating technology into their chosen career. Technology training directly affects preserve teachers’ self-efficacy and value beliefs, which in turn influence their student-centered technology use.
