Supporting Friendly Atmosphere in a Classroom by Technology Implementation
Lukaš, Mirko
Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Conference "Challenges in Building Child Friendly Communities" (Zadar, Croatia, Oct 10-12, 2014)
Extremely rapid development of information technology and the lack of monopoly in the technological market have resulted in a sudden price reduction of the informatic equipment and gadgets enabling them to be used in all segments of a human life, hence the education as well. In the modern, digital era it is almost impossible to make any significant result without the integration of technology in work. However, integrating technology in a classroom and educational process does not imply only to equip classrooms and offices with modern technological equipment, but also to improve and readjust the curriculum in order to fully use the available IT tools. Using technology in a classroom must be efficient, transparent and simple. Furthermore, it aims at improving learning quality in a class, but also at preparing students for real-life situations. The necessity of technology implementation in classrooms is not only a formal process of equipping classrooms, but also adjusting the curriculum in order to refocus on the development of technological competences of both students and teachers. This will train future young generations for everyday life in their surroundings in which their class would be a functioning model of a friendly community simulating real life problems we are preparing for and dealing with successfully.
