IT Tools in Initial Teacher Training
Herlo, Dorin
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on e-Learning (Madeira, Portugal, Jul 1-4, 2016)
In initial teacher training, the call to use IT tools, and to integrate them into the virtual learning space, is not conjectural but is an example of introducing new technologies in the complexity of educational sciences. For this reason we approached the use of new technologies in the courses and seminars of subjects from the curriculum of training the future teachers, other than Computer Assisted Instruction (CAI) or Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Thus, as a solution for interactive learning, we have integrated, in other several courses, the smart board "eBeam Engage" linked to a laptop, a projector and a surrounding sound system and computers connected to the internet, therefore IT tools. By embedding them in the act of learning it was watched: overcoming communication barriers facilitate engagement of students in designing and supporting transformative learning activities by using this type of IT instruments in various learning situations; increasing their attendance to courses and, to emphasize the formed skills of the students and to form new competences to them, thus increasing their responsibility for their own becoming. For observing their personal development in these directions observation sheets, questionnaires, e-portfolios and the exams as evaluation instruments were used. After processing the data collected by means of these evaluation instruments, our expectations on enhancing intellectual quality product of the work of the students were justified.
