Techno-pedagogical competency of higher secondary school teachers in relation to students’ academic achievement in science
More than three decades ago computers and related information technologies were introduced to education for direct teaching and learning purposes. It started with the presentation of the software to CAL/CBT/CAI and then moving multimedia course and finally to learning management system using open and flexible learning. Every day new scientific and technological innovations are taking place. These innovations are to be implemented in the field of educational theory and practice. Technology interferes; each aspect of human life, including the field of education. Being a teacher one should know the importance of technology as it had made the student to understand easily the content deliver by the teacher. When it came to teaching theories, the Teachers should give up the mechanical approach and make it interesting by simulating problems and finding solutions to such imaginary issues. The purpose of this study is to determining the technological and pedagogical competency of higher secondary school teachers with the relation to students’ academic achievement in science. This is a descriptive study. It was conducted using the survey model. This research aims to investigate whether the academic achievements in science of higher secondary school students and the techno-pedagogical competency of their teachers show statistically significant relationship in terms of some variables like gender and locale. The study was administered upon 100 teachers and 100 students of Cuttack district. And the findings of the study were revealed that majority of teachers were having moderate level techno-pedagogical competency and teachers belong to urban area were having high techno-pedagogical competency than that of rural area because of the variability in facilities available in urban and rural school. The techno-pedagogical competency of teachers and academic achievement of students are related each other.
