Technology is utilized for the upliftment of modern styles and is also applicable in education; it satisfies both visual and auditory senses of the students. With the spread and development of technology around the world, it has been used and learned by more and more people.

As the student demographics change, information technology has become the criteria for successful performance both in the area of school and in academic life. Therefore, it has created the need of integrating technology into the area of education. One of the factors of technology is the use of multimedia. And one of the most popular tools of multimedia software used of technology in education is PowerPoint presentation. Fisher (2003) defines power point briefly as follows: “PowerPoint is a type of presentation software that allows one to show colored text and images with simple animation and sound. PowerPoint is just one of many types of presentation software.” PowerPoint can be a highly effective tool to aid learning, but if not used carefully, may instead disengage students and actually hinder learning. This study examines whether PPT improves students development of confidence. The aim of this study is to give the effects of the PPT usage in the first Year College of Education students major in English.

Joel E. Payapa, Ed.D Presented By Cercado, Joshua Kim T. Daniel, John Daniel M. De Guzman, John Odilon T. March 15, 2013 Chapter 1 THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND Introduction The extent of student’s learning in academics may be determined by the grades a student earns for a period of learning has been done. It is believed that a grade is a primary indicator of such learning. If a learner earns high grades it is concluded that they may also have learned a lot while low grades indicate lesser learning. However, many experiences and studies found out that there are also several factors that would account for the grades. No single factor can be definitely pointed out as predicting grades. It has been an inter play of so many factors – gender, IQ, study habits, age, year level, parent’s educational attainment, social status, number of siblings, birth order, etc. In fact, almost all of existing environmental and personal factors are a variable of academic performance.

But some policies are same for all countries such as Fiscal Policy, Monetary Policy, etc. Philippines, as a developing country has set various economic policies & strategies over time with a view to seeking development.

The crucial policies that the government of the country adopted over time are – Fiscal policy, Monetary policy, Income distribution strategy, Government policy, Tax policy, Trade policy, etc. The impacts of these policies have had widespread effects on various macroeconomic variables of the country.

Powerpoint Presentation

...investigates whether PowerPoint presentations improve student’s learning and attitudes compared with traditional classroom presentations. While the use of PowerPoint and multimedia in the classroom has significantly increased globally in recent years (Connor and Wong, 2004; Bartsch and Cobern, 2003), few studies have systematically investigated its impact on student learning and attitudes. Rebele et al. (1998) note that little research exists regarding integration of technology in the accounting curriculum, and suggest that accounting researchers should examine whether technology improves learning. One study that has examined the relationship between multimedia and student learning and attitudes was conducted by Butler and Mautz (1996). In a laboratory experiment conducted during a 30-minute time period, they found that multimedia did not affect student recall in all situations. Butler and Mautz did find an interaction between the effects of the multimedia presentation and the student’s preferred class representation style (i.e., whether the student was considered a “verbal” or “imaginal” learner). To improve the quality of learning in our schools using multimedia is very effective in the teaching learning situation. It benefits the students to grasp information easily, to understand as much information as possible, to retain information longer and to gain knowledge that is observable and measured. Literally, multimedia refers to the process of conveying message using......

The Effect of Selective Attention on the Academic Development of the Nigerian Student

...THE EFFECT OF SELECTIVE ATTENTION ON THE ACADEMIC DEVELOPMENT OF THE NIGERIAN STUDENT BY GODWIN EIGBE A PAPER PRESENTED AT THE INSTITUTE OF OPENCAST MINING AND TECHNOLOGY BENIN CITY 23RD AUGUST, 2013 Introduction The poor performance of Nigerian students in both internal and external examinations have been decried in many quarters across the country and many have blamed the society, the schools and parents for their role in the deteriorating level of academic performances. Not many have questioned the role of the students themselves in the dilemma that has befallen them. The search for a permanent cure to this menace has been on for decades. However with every new dawn the case seems to go worse. There are many who blame the poor economy as a result of high level corruption being perpetrated in government and political circles. Others believe that the school system is failing and is not doing enough to ensure that students get the maximum attention necessary for excellence. And there are others who believe that neglect on the part of parents is responsible for poor performances in schools. However true these factors are, no independent factor can be singled out to be more responsible for the problem of poor performance by students in schools. More recently, many researchers have identified lack of seriousness, laziness which leads to procrastination and corruption and examination malpractices in schools...

Conformity of the Cba Students to the Use of Continues Technological Development

...these innovations are because of technological developments. Agreeing to the definition of technology that can be applied to all stages of history may be impossible. Early technology evolved primarily through accident and trial and error. While the discovery of technology is still very important, contemporary technology is mainly the result of a constantly expanding knowledge base. With the proliferation of technologies that are able to overcome the obstacles of time and space, one would be use to gain an understanding of other culture; meet people all over the world. Maintain and strengthen familial relationship, communicate effectively with others, and help people to become more socially adept. However, some technological advances cause people to be distracted, overly stressed, and increasingly isolated. Many people are involved in an abundant number of relationships through technology, but sometimes the quantity of these associations leaves people feeling qualitatively empty. Obviously, technology has had a profound impact on what it means to be social. Today, the concept of an educated person includes an element of technological literacy. Technology offers broad tools that extend human capabilities. In contemporary society, the bond between human and technology goes to very extent level, and this is must be carefully examined in order for us to keep in perspective the scope of technological variation, the scope of its effects globally, the complexity and......

Educational Leadership in Philippine Setting

...Gentry Members of ABSEL are dedicated to the proposition that students can learn from experience. Most people adhere to the notion of “trial and error” learning. Various ABSEL participants have used the following quote, attributed to Confucius, to express their conviction that experiential learning is effective: I HEAR AND I FORGET I SEE AND I REMEMBER I DO AND I UNDERSTAND.1 Others have cited Sophocles’ quote from 400 B.C., “One must learn by doing the thing, for though you think you know it-you have no certainty, until you try.” Or, one could quote George Santayana, “The great difficulty of education is to get experience out of ideas.” It is hard to argue that experience will not lead to learning under the right conditions. However, it will be argued that the resultant learning can be in error unless care is taken to assure that those conditions occur. The purpose of this chapter is to delineate the components of “experiential learning” so that the necessary conditions for “proper” learning can be specified. While most pedagogies allow students to learn experientially to some extent, an attempt will be made to distinguish those approaches which would be more likely to facilitate experiential learning. While the title of the chapter implies a focus on learning (the student perspective), to a large extent the chapter actually focuses on the structuring of the experience (the teacher perspective). What the student takes away from a particular experience is often......
