THE ROLES AND FUNCTIONS OF EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY

1.) Arouse and sustain the interest and attention of the pupils/students to learn.

2.) Concretize abstract concepts/ideas to promote meaningful learning.

3.) Makes learning more permanent because of the rich experiences that they provide.

4.) Provide self-activities for independent learning.

5.) Increae vocabulary by eliminating verbalism.

6.) Develop continuity of thought.

7.) Increase the quality of learning while decreasing the time spent.

8.) Check pupils preparedness.

9.) Make learning more interactive, hence learning is improved.
