IMPACT OF ICT ON STUDENT’S LEARNING ACHIEVEMENT AND MOTIVATION - SOME DEBATABLE ISSUES

A. Kumar, S. Kedar

National Institute of Technical Teachers' Training & Research (NITTTR) (INDIA)
There is wide spread belief that Information and communication Technologies ( ICTs) can and will empower teachers and learners by transforming teaching and learning processes from being teacher- centered to student-centered. This transformation will result in increased learning gains and motivation for students. However, reviews of the research on impacts of ICTs on student achievement yield few conclusive statements, pro or contra, about the impact of ICTs on achievement and motivation. For every study that comes out with significant positive impact, another study finds little or no such positive impact. Many studies that find positive impacts of ICTs on student learning rely on self-reporting. What is still being debated, however, is the precise role ICT should play in education reform and how best to ensure that potential is fulfilled.The present paper tries to highlight some of the issues debated in the present context such as explicitly and clarity of goals while using ICT, Whether ICT used as substitute or complement to teacher’s existing pedagogical approaches,whatever improvement whether real,differential effect on students with or without facility of computer at home, age for student, effect of gender of the learner, Design of the impact study and many more.These issues are required to be sorted out if effectiveness of ICTs is to be maximized.
