Awareness of School Teachers on Educational Informatics in Kerala: A Study

The rationale of this study was to examine the teachers’ level of awareness about the educational informatics in the state of Kerala in India. Data were collected from 350 higher secondary school teachers from 25 schools spread in three districts of Kerala, viz. Kannur, Kozhikode and Malappuram. The results of the study indicate that majority of the respondents were aware of the educational informatics. Most of the teachers are advocating the application and utilization of educational informatics in their regular teaching and learning practice. The study looked into the developments in teaching, learning and research on one side and the growth of information and communication technology (ICT) on the other. All concerned with education today are attempting to grasp how ICT could help in modernizing teaching, learning, evaluation and management. The ways of learning things have been transformed by information technologies and are no longer restricted only to the conventional medium of print, bibliographies and abstract.
