A Framework for Utilisation of Modern Instructional Technology in Teaching Agricultural Education

Authors : Nor Lisa Sulaiman, Hauwa Hassan and Bala Ishiyaku

Abstract: The study proposed a framework for effective utilisation of Modern Instructional Technology (MIT) in teaching Agric education courses to achieve student’s critical thinking skill. The development of MIT poses a challenge to the instructors to improve educational quality to meet the educational need of the 21st century digital students. The study explored the MIT methods and equipment used in teaching Agric vocational courses and proposed a framework for effective utilisation of the Modern Instructional Technology (MIT) equipment and methods. The modern instruction design model was adapted from basic lesson design sequence for direct instruction model. Then, the kinds of knowledge that teachers would ideally use to design modern instruction in Agric education were added. The model indicated areas of overlap which mark where these knowledge and expertise domains converge and the resultant output the students will exhibit which is critical thinking skill. Therefore, the proposed framework for evaluation of the role of MIT in teaching Agric education was derived from that model based on RED model theory of critical thinking. The framework argued that if MIT methods were effectively utilised using available MIT equipment at appropriate subject area and with good usage behaviour, critical thinking skill will be achieved. Therefore, this review provided ideas on how the use of MIT stimulates teaching of Agric vocational courses, how to encourage young individuals to embark on vocational skills and proved that use of MIT leads to critical thinking that leads to new innovations
