Many things must be considered by the educationists as their role is pivotal when it comes to training students for the next phase of their life. The teachers’ positive attitudes are not essentially reflected in their real classroom practices but also in their teaching methodology.
Develop a connection with students:
Several factors are considered responsible for the lack of connection between technology-related principles and practices that might be contextual, social, and cultural. Following the opinion of experts, ‘teachers are certainly not “free agents” and the level to which they incorporate technology depends on the connecting cultural, social, and organizational backgrounds of which they are a part and where they live. The major issues are pertinent to the lack of software, limited funds, time, and technology skills are the major obstacle in this regard. Even though technology has rapidly developed over some time, many areas are still backward and have less technological resources due to which people living there have less or no access to the use of technology.
Subject experience of the teachers:
Teacher’s expertise is another significant tool that plays a main role in the integration of technology into the classroom. This can be developed by offering relevant development programs and effective training so that their knowledge of the potential advantages of technological tools will be enhanced. There is a need for the provision of guidance to the teachers to use technology with students in the classrooms. Training services will enhance their capacity and they will be more efficient in integrating technological tools in their class in a better way.
Provide sufficient facilities for teachers:
Schools and universities should also play their part in providing facilities to the teachers and encouraging them towards acclimatizing to the technological tools. Furthermore, training and workshop sessions should be conducted regarding the emerging that would help them in evaluating easily and get a better understanding of the technological developments. Routine meetings or offering incentive-based programs would support the teachers and they will be more interested in the integration. If they are supported, they will give much attention to the development of technology and will use it in a much suitable manner.
