Differentiate the traditional instruction with IT integrated instruction
The difference between the traditional instruction and the IT integrated instruction is that, when we
say traditional instruction it is more on using the variety of visual media and other current resources;
too much focus on textbook learning. the students cover and memorize textbook content, a teacher
evaluation system focused on lecture and discussion. While the IT integrated instruction, it is more on
using the technologies like power point presentation, film viewing and another gadget that the teacher
can use and most especially useful in distant learning.
The advantage of using the traditional instruction is that, the students will not forget immediately the
topic that is being discussed by the teacher especially when the teacher use the visual aid because the
students can easily see the visual aid that had been already discussed by the teacher. However, it
takes a lot of time in terms of preparation before you can make a presentable visual aid.
The advantages of using the IT integrated instruction is that, the teacher can make a presentable
presentation in minutes. The teacher can browse many pictures that he/she can use in her/his
presentation without exerting more efforts. The teacher can beautify the presentation using the different
backgrounds that can catch also the attention of the students, but the backgrounds must relate to the
topic. The teacher also can explore more about the topic. But it has also a disadvantage if the teacher
uses this kind of instruction, he/she must be prepared for any alternative if issues arise.
Although traditional instruction and IT instruction nowadays are both present but mostly, we use IT
instructional materials to enhance the teaching and learning process for both the teacher and the
learners. We already have a subject about technology, and each one of us must be aware how to use
it because whether we like it or not, we are now living in a world of technology. Meaning, most of the
time we use technology for us to exist more and improve more.
The only thing that concerns me about IT-integrated instruction is, when a teacher is very dependent
to it. It's no better to the teaching-learning process. If dependency to technology reigns, then a teacher
loses his/her creativity and innovatively. For he doesn't think of the possible circumstances, like
blackout or any other problems that may arise.
However, technology should not be the enemy. On the contrary, it should be utilized as a tool to
improve traditional teaching and learning experience. I myself benefits on the instructions. First, as a
student, I find it more convenient and effective if a teacher uses both learning instructions. Second, I
am an online tutor and IT is very beneficial for me. I am able to teach students even if I am not physically
with them. Through IT, I am able to extend my knowledge to my students and many resources are also
offered online which distance students find very helpful as well.
Though we are now more on IT-integrated teaching, we can't go away with the Traditional
instructional material. A teacher must be resourceful. The traditional one is not to be vanished, for it is
undying in the teaching-learning process. Whatever the teacher chooses to use, these instructional
materials will not stand if the teacher doesn’t know on how to apply the instructional materials well.
