Digital Pedagogy Analysis On Technology Trend Relevant To Education 4.0

[Full Text]



Eric G. Pardiñan, Romarico A. Loremia



Computer Assisted Learning (CAL), Education 4.0, Electronics, Simulation, Technology



Technology is essential in the development of the educational process. The rapid growth of information technologies has led to the birth of information societies and led organizations to adjust to new technological advances. The 4th industrial revolution or Industry 4.0 can be referred to as the current and developmental transformation, which results from innovative technologies and trends. Hence, the study would look into the implications of the technology-supported pedagogies; the article would introduce a hybrid instructional platform adapting technology trends relevant to Education 4.0 called Systematic Computer Assisted Learning Environment (SCALE). The study used an experimental research design, sought to compare the level of learning in terms of knowledge, practical skills acquisition, and craftsmanship, involving learners using the conventional methods in teaching-learning and the SCALE platform. The study used two instruments that were based on the instructional objectives of lessons on Embedded Systems Programming & Industrial Automation. Data obtained were analyzed using weighted mean, standard deviation, and T-test analysis. Cohen’s Kappa was also used to determine the inter-rater level of agreement of respondents using the SCALE platform. According to the results, the SCALE contributed to the academic success of the group that had used the computer-assisted learning environment as compared to the group that utilized conventional methods. The researchers somehow express that despite the existing gaps and mixed findings, a list of significant recommendations for when and how to use technologies on a computer-assisted learning environment may be considered to increase the likelihood of promoting student engagement
