THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND
This chapter presents the introduction, background of the study, statement of the problem, theoretical and conceptual framework, significant of the study, scope and limitation of the study and definition of terms.
Technology is becoming a bigger and bigger part of the world today. Technology has evolved and become more central to teaching and learning. Integrating technology into the curriculum is a priority in schools. When teachers first began to use computers in a classroom setting, schools evaluate whether the use of educational technology had a significant and consistent impact on student achievement. When people hear the word “technology”, computers are the first thing people think. However, there are many different types of technology other than computers that can be used to improve student learning. There are different kinds of content and serve different purposes in the classroom. Such examples as word processing programs that encourage communication and writing skills; spreadsheet software promotes mathematics; database software promotes organizational skills; modeling software enhances the application of science skills (Using Technology to Improve Achievement, 2009). It is without question that the introduction of a new medium of instruction like technology would have an enormous impact on the traditional classroom. A wealth of opportunities awaits anyone pursuing a career in hotel and restaurant management. The choice of HRM entails dual opportunity – either in the hotel industry or in the field of restaurant management. However, there are certain aspects that have to be determined in this study. Do the students possess motivational factors such as individual values, reality and emotional factors and the influence in the educational process?
With the foregoing issues and concerns, the researchers would like to determine the students’ academic performance with the use of enhanced way of teaching using modern technology.
Technology should be integrated as a tool to promote and extend student learning on a daily basis. Technology use allows students to create, problem solve, research, collaborate, and interact globally. Students that use technology as a tool and or a support for communicating with others are in an active role rather than the passive role of recipient of information by a teacher or reading textbooks. Students have the ability to learn and express themselves in their individual learning style too. When technology is introduced into a classroom, things change. Instruction through computers give students more control over their learning environments and access to a wider range of materials to use in the learning process. For example, students are too confused or embarrassed to ask questions because they don’t want to show their ignorance but with individualized computer instruction, students can always immediately request help if something is unclear. Computers in classroom help to make it more interactive. They are extremely effective with the struggling learners because they have unlimited patience. The computer can also be used to educate the smarter students who easily get bored in a traditional classroom since they reach their goal faster. With computers, students that finish a unit can go to the next one immediately. For these bright students, the challenges that computers can offer encourage self-directed learning. Also, the use of technology fosters collaboration among student. The researchers aims to the enhancement technology would bring to the performance of the students of LPSU – LBC.
