Different types of Learning experiences are needed to retain the learning
concepts. Teaching materials become essential for the expansion of learning. Our
senses are the gateways of acquiring knowledge about the surroundings. As people
are different in their appearances, thoughts and in actions, the fie senses are also
different from one another in its actiities. Learning through senses create a clear and
quality learning. The functions of brain is to select all the sensual experiences,
classify, inter change and interlink these experiences into general concepts. The
sensual experiences stimulate the arious concepts about the world.
!any senses are inoled while performing an actiity or gaining experiences.
"xample# During teaching, the learners listen to the teacher and also obsere the
facial expressions by their eyes. Learning takes place at different leels among the
learners. $ome learn by isual sense and others by learning skill and few others by
tactile, and listening skills. $o, the teacher tries to teach through multi sensory
approach to the students. %t is essential to use more additional Teaching and Learning
!aterials in multi sensory approach. &se of the best result oriented equipments is
known as '"ducational Technology(. %n short, "ducational technology inoles in the
best use of techniques, preparation and uses of methods and ealuation.
1.1 Tools of Technology
The instruments which enhance the learning experiences come under
Technology of "ducation. The ultimate aim of educational technology is to attain the
learning ob)ecties in a short period in its designing, application and ealuation. The

equipments of instrumental technology.
1.1.3 Technology of Education
Technology of "ducation consists of .sychology related concepts, methods of
retaining students attention, application of methods, attaining teaching ob)ecties and
immediate reinforcement usages.
1.1.4 Software Technology
$oftware technology equipments are prepared with the help of hardware
technology. /ew inentions in technology are the result of deelopment of knowledge.
The Learners( behaiour can be modified if the psychological theories are integrated in
the preparation of $oftware Technology.
Example: Text boos, !e"spapers, Pictures, Video pictures, Radio lessons, Recorded ne"s, #ilms
and #ilm strips are prepared on Ps$c%olo&$ based concepts'
$o, all these materials come under $oftware Technology. .reparation of teaching
equipments hae become essential because of increase in population and
abundant deelopment of technology. The designing of teaching equipments
must be suitable for teaching and information oriented.
Five important reasons for teaching:

%t registers pictures in mind 6mind mapping on concepts7 and helps to recollect
correct information.
%t helps to motiate the learners in their actiities physically and mentally.
%t helps in effectie learning in a short time.
1.2 Types of Teaching learning materials :
"dger Dale, an educationist, classified the Teaching learning materials for
teaching. The learning experiences are diided under three broad categories. They
are as follows#
*. Actiity based experiences.
,. Obseration based experiences.
0. 8eali5ation of concepts.
For the II Year D.T.Ed.(2008-10)students of DIET, Lawspet. Subject: FEL-II. Page 4 of 25
Lecture Notes on Technology for Learning.
"xperiences gained through actiities strengthen knowledge. $econdly,
obseration based experiences help the learners for concrete knowledge. The third
type of knowledge is not dependable.
"dger Dale constituted a cone shaped experiences for knowledge. %t begins
from erbal to Direct experience.

"lassification of audio visual aids :
The aboe mentioned learning materials are used for teaching. According to
"dger Dale, the learners should get direct and real experiences from the real tools. %n
the absence of real tools, .icture charts and other materials can be used.

1.3 #election of Tools#
Teacher should select the teaching materials depending upon the learning
ob)ecties and the learners abilities. 9irst, the selected topic is diided into small units.
The unit starts from simple concept to complex in an interlinked manner to achiee
expected learning outcome. %dentification of appropriate tools, collection or preparation
of tools are essential to teach each unit. %f many tools are aailable while teaching a
unit, the tools can be used by the learners indiidually or in groups.
.roisions should be made for self3ealuation to assess the learners( progress.
The teacher must hae a thorough knowledge of tools and its functions. Apt tool for a
unit and its use within the time frame in teaching helps the learners in understanding
the concepts or ideas better.
1.$ %elevance of Teaching !earning &aterials :
The uses of teaching learning materials depend on its designing and utility.
$uitable material in a suitable enironment brings out the desirable learning outcome.
The following steps may be mentioned for the preparation of TL!(s.
*. $election of TL! must be based on students( ability and on the contents of
the lesson.
,. TL! should be used at the appropriate time.

2. ;hen the TL! is used by the teacher, it should motiate and inole the
learners in learning.
4. After the use of TL!, the students should be engaged in lesson oriented
learning actiities.
;hen teaching is completed, the performance of the TL!, its use and
its releance to the lesson are to be studied, reised and ealuated.
1.5 'roper uses of ToolsInstruments :
The best use of a tool lies in identification of its arious functions and conerting
of its different functions for teaching and learning purpose.
-efore its use, the reason for its selection, utility, performance, aailability,
necessity, durability and its functions are to be considered. %f selection is done
on these basis, the tool will be properly used by the learners.
.lanning is more important for the effectie use of tools by the learners. $tudents
not only should obsere the tools but also know the purpose of using the

1.( &ultimedia usage
Texts, 1raphics, Art, $ound, Animation and .ictures are combined and
presented through computer or in any other electronic deice in a multimedia.
The combined presentation of many medium for teaching is called multimedia.
$oftware packages, tools and simple media (objects, models, pictures, c%arts, maps and
dia&ram) can be used to explain a single concept or idea.
For the II Year D.T.Ed.(2008-10)students of DIET, Lawspet. Subject: FEL-II. Page 8 of 25
Lecture Notes on Technology for Learning.
&se of many medium in teaching enhances not only the skill of learners but
also the skill of teaching.
EXAMPLE: First, the teacher teaches orally. Then, he does activities to strengthen the idea or
concept. He stimulates the learners to practice the activities. The teacher displays diagrams.
Thus, the teacher appeals to the dierent senses o the learner such as sight, hearing, touch
etc., to enhance learning through multimedia.
1.) 'reparation of *it +o, :
=it -ox contains tools related to the topics of a lesson for the purpose of
teaching and learning. %n this =it -ox, real ob)ects, models, booklets, children
encyclopaedia, graphs, pictures, maps, 1lobes, puppets, picture collections, maps of
different countries, necessary materials for demonstration, map sketches, low cost
material tools, film strips, O+., slides, audio3ideo recorders are collected and kept.
The teacher prepares the kit box based on the content for his method of
teaching and usage. $tudents are also inoled in the collection of tools. The students
inolement in this actiity will increase their interest. $o, the learners handle the
materials or tools with much care. They become responsible for the safety and
security of the tools. These tools can be prepared for indiidual teaching, indiidual
learning and group learning. The tools must be easily aailable and cost effectie.
'oints to ponder -hile preparing the *it +o, :
*. The tools must be collected and used to attain a specific ob)ectie in each
lesson. %t should deelop the skills of the learners.
,. !ake the students handle the tools for their learning actiities.
0. ;hile using the teaching learning material, the learners recall the lesson
oriented concepts.

,. %t enhances self3learning and multisensory learning.
0. %t makes learning )oyful and interesting.
2. Learning becomes easy when well defined teaching ob)ecties are taught
through tools.
The teacher prepares three kit boxes ie., 9or language, !aths and $cience
sub)ects. $ome of the tools are displayed to the students by the teacher. The students
are asked to collect three tools related to the three sub)ects. The teacher arranges in
the releant kit3boxes. 8epetition of the same teaching aid in a kit box is to be aoided
by the teacher. The teacher asks the students to prepare a kit box for each sub)ect.
The trainees are instructed to prepare a kit box with skill oriented teaching aids for
each lesson for the three subjects.
1./ Information and communication Technology:
%nformation technology plays a ma)or role in enhancing learning. "ffectie

brought radical changes in the present educational system. %t integrates multimedia
and caters to an indiidual(s educational needs.
%nformation and <ommunication technology is not a separate technology.
%<T comprises of hardware, software and media. %nformation and <ommunication
technology stands apart from the other preious technologies. %t has arious
dimensions such as integration of multimedia, method of transformation of information
flexibility in usage and it has the specialty in linking one another in an effectie manner
for learning.
1./.1 Information and "ommunication Technology and !earning
Enhancement :
The %<T has enhanced the use of knowledge and sharing of knowledge in the
field of education. %n the present educational scenario, the educational system faces
multiple challenges in meeting the needs of a learner. "specially, when a computer is
linked to the %nternet, it can change the regular classroom actiities completely.
This technology will improe the quality of teacher training > the teaching
profession too. %t is not to be considered as only a technology but eery teacher must
use %<T to the maximum for the benefit of the learners in transferring information.
The teaching learning ob)ecties are easily attained if a balance is maintained
among the teacher, learner, content and teaching learning materials in a class room
teaching. Therefore, a teacher has to restructure his teaching actiities, concepts of
the lesson and TL!(s correctly. %<T seres as a bridge to the learners to achiee their
learning ob)ecties. %t prepares them as eligible students to face the information
oriented society in future.
%n this computeri5ed enironment, cost effectieness is an important factor .
!uch progress can be achieed in education if more time and effort is spent in linking
the teaching methods, curriculum, ealuation and innoatie actiities with the
%nformation and <ommunication Technology.

1./.2 Uses of Information and "ommunication Technology :
The primary ob)ectie of %nformation and <ommunication Technology is to
transform the teacher oriented education to student centered education.
This technology does not change the teaching methods or teacher learner
concepts. %t is used as a spare for the enhancement of real learning
%<T is diided into three categories based on its special features. They are
$ub)ect, Aspect and !edium.
%t seres as a tool for school organi5ation and management.
Though it is not directly linked with learning, it proides an additional support in
the classroom and school leel learning.
;hile learning the fundamental truth of information technology, this technology
becomes a sub)ect. 6ie7 <omputer "ducation Training in the school curriculum.
%f %<T is used in education, it is known as aspect. %t refers to the technical
education. Ex: (rts related computer trainin&, manu)acturin& and calculation t%rou&% computer'

The main ob)ectie of 'Aspect( in %nformation and <ommunication Technology is
to prepare the students for professions.
%<T seres as a teaching medium for the teacher when teaching and learning
medium for the students while learning in the classroom.
%<T is used as a medium in many ways. They are Drill and practice exercises,
$imulation, %ndiidual learning systems and "ducational Tele /etwork.
A teacher should prepare himself to use the %nformation and <ommunication
Technology as a medium. %t seres as one of the steps of teaching and one of the
methods of teaching profession.
For the II Year D.T.Ed.(2008-10)students of DIET, Lawspet. Subject: FEL-II. Page 12 of 25
Lecture Notes on Technology for Learning.
Therefore, to enhance teaching, a teacher should gain knowledge in the use of
%nformation and <ommunication Technology during the .re3$erice Training and %n3
serice Training. The contribution of %<T in the field of education will be closely related
to the teaching methods and the expected learning outcome. Linking of %<T with
teaching methods is not introducing a new approach in education, but enhancing
learning as a sub)ect, aspects and medium.
