They are not students of our generation, where they sit down and listen. I think things have changed now; they want to explore, cut and paste.
ANALYSIS OF TRADITIONAL METHOD OF TEACHING
Pre-technology education context, the teacher is the sender or the source.
The educational material is the information or message.
The student is the receiver of the information.
The delivery medium
“chalk-and- talk” method
overhead projector (OHP) transparencies.
In such a lecture students assume a purely passive role and their concentration fades off after 15-20 minutes.
Teaching in classroom using chalk and talk is “one way flow” of information
Teachers often continuously talk for an hour without knowing students response and feedback.
The material presented is only based on lecturer notes and textbooks.
There is insufficient interaction with students in classroom.
More emphasis has been given on theory without any practical and real life time situations.
Learning from memorization but not understanding.
