1. Define Educational Technology?

- Technology is more than hardware. Technology consist of designs and the environments
that engage learners. – D. Jonasen.
- The word “technology” comes from the Greek word “techne” which mean craft or art
- Educational Technology refers to the art and craft of responding to our educational needs.
- Technology is not just machine. It is a planned, systematic method or working to achieve
planned outcome a process not a product
- Base on Dale 1969
Technology also refer to any valid and reliable process or procedure that is derived from
basic research using scientific method.
- Base from Wikipedia
Technology refers to “all the ways people use their inventions and discoveries to satisfy
their needs and desires.

- Base from the World Book Encyclopedia, vol 9

Educational technology refers to how people use their inventions and discoveries to satisfy
their needs and desires

- Base on the definition of Educational Technology

Educational technology is a “complex, integrated process involving people, procedures,
ideas, devices, and organization for analyzing problems and devising, implementing,
evaluating and managing solution to those problems, in all aspect of human learning.

- Base from David H. Jonassen

 Educational technology “consist of designs and environments that engage learners
and reliable technique and method for engaging learning such as cognitive learning
strategies and critical thinking skills.
 It is a theory about how problems in human learning are identified and solved.
 Is a field involved in applying a complex, integrating process to analyze and solve
problems in human learning
 It is a profession like teaching. It is made up of organized effort to implement the
theory, intellectual technique and the practical application of educational
- Base from Lucido and Borado
Educational technology is a field study which is concerned with a practice of using
educational methods and resources for the ultimate goal of facilitating the learning process

2. What could future learners have as an advantage over present day learners?

Thera are many advantage that the future learners can have. These are:

 Students can go to their classes without going to school. This can be done by online
classes in which the students watch videos to nurture their knowledge and skills.
Here the use of internet plays a big part to the learning of the students. Now a day

some online tutorials provide not only video tutorials but the materials needed for
the lesson are also there (this is very common in the field of Computer courses).
 Flexible schedule. Online classes will mold with your schedule—and allow you to log
into your online course at a time that works best for you, as opposed to having to
attend a lecture at a specific time.
 The materials provided by the institution will be accessible not only on a computer
but also on the student’s mobile devices or tablets
 Books maybe replace by e-Books (electronic books) in which it will save much space
and portable to carry.
 Future students will use devices such as smart boards, televisions, projectors etc.
provide visual explanation that enhances understanding.
 The future learner has the advantage of availing the latest trends and advances for
future computer technology users which is more superior than the present
technology in use. Present day learners are using technology developed now and
maybe replaced by a new and more advanced technology adapted to the changing
needs of the future situation that could be availed of by the future learners.
Technology is changing, thus, what is true now maybe antiquated in the future. So,
future learner has the advantage in using the latest developed computer technology
to his advantaged

3. Do you believe that Computer Assisted Instructor (CAI) in some future time can replace
teachers in the classroom?

There are possibilities that this can happen but I can’t tell when. Now that we are in the
modern era, technological devices become part of our daily life. Computers are becoming
better at providing customized direct instruction and at assessing student mastery of
foundational knowledge and skills. Computers are exceptionally good at tasks that can be
encoded into routines with well-defined inputs, outputs, and goals.

In the end. I prefer much the real teacher. They provide personalized, qualitative feedback
to help students develop their critical and creative thinking. They create a classroom culture
that intrinsically motivates students by honoring their hard work and by making academic
achievement socially relevant.

Let accept the fact that technology will not improve our education system if we downgrade
or eliminate teachers. Likewise, our education system will not meet modern needs at scale
until we innovate beyond the factory-model classroom. Innovation may lead us to classroom
setups and teacher roles that look very different from today, but a human element will
always be an essential part of the equation.
