IMPACT OF INTERNET ON ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF GEOGRAPHY STUDENTS IN SOME SELECTED SECONDARY SCHOOLS



CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1.    BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

We know that internet and internet   are appreciated by students. Internet and field study are also important learning tools in geography. Internet are based on the idea that the web page for learning is made in the particular web page where the object for learning takes place and is placed, geography thus embodies the practice of in situ learning. (Kent et al., 1997). Boyle, (et al., 2007) concludes for instance that internet   in geography are effective in learning since they are affective. Fuller (et al., 2006) and Scott (et al., 2006) also argues that there is a need for rigorous research into this issue. Common arguments used in describing the concern and the effectiveness of learning in field, in terms of understanding of the subject is: providing first-hand experience of the real world, whichever part of the world the students are in; skills development (transferable and technical); and social benefits. Apart from the social aspects, there are other experiences from geography field work that emphasize the dynamics of groups in learning (Brown, 1999). Bringing students into field may serve as a bridge between the popular and the academic (Smith, 2001). It is also argued here, that it may be fruitful to give some attention to performative and non-representational aspects of internet  s, as Basset (2004) does when he tries to relate social theory and excurssion practice, especially through the practice of walking, as a form of movement through the city with aesthetic and critical potential. Walking is a practice that allows questions being asked in between practical work and theory, and allow for the transferring and putting theory into practice (Thrift, 2008, p.22). Clark (1997) sees how this integration of diverse theoretical approaches and the simultaneous consideration by students of both local (often personal) details and national (or even global) aspects plays an important role in the field trail. Savin-Badin & Van Niekerk (2007) use narrative inquiry in field work as a reflective learning process. Marvell (2008) reports that the in site presentations made by students helps to widen the experience and develop a range of transferable skills, encouraging a greater sense of place and facilitating reflective learning. Internet  s, as an in situ learning and teaching practice thus involve precognitive conditions that make up what is human, and what is human is, at the same time, made in the making of teaching in field. Learning in internet is in one way characterized by what Kolb (1984) defines as assimilation; however in this case, precognitions are mixed with theoretical understandings of a city. The result of this is that the internet   is used as means for producing accommodation of knowledge. As such, internet in geography involve the active engagement in real world perspectives through the presentation in role playing (Livingstone, 1999). Internet involves more than just presentations of settings and pointing to interesting spots in a landscape. Performing internet also involve acoustic, semantic, group dynamic, aesthetic, political, symbolic, emotional, and verbal and gesture aspects. There is a reason for not making any clear distinction between the teacher, the group of people involved in the internet   and the students, because students are given the assignment to collect information about specific places in the city, Copenhagen, before the internet   takes place. Students in human geography and from the teachers’ education are taken to Copenhagen every semester, since 2003. Every group consists of 15-25 students and they prepare a presentation in groups of two to three related to a particular place on a route through the city. Every presentation must be related to the literature in human and social geography, and every student produce an internet  guide as part of the examination. The students thus perform the internet   by taking the role of guiding and presenting places along a given route, to some extent similar to Burgess and Jackson, (1992), but with the teacher as dialogue partner. In this particular situation, the learning experiencing and the performance of internet and internet   are all juxtaposed into the practice of performing an internet  , and it is therefore difficult to separate teacher from student, or members of the group and the group itself, and even so, the learning web page from representations, concepts and the object of learning. The teacher thus has the role of a group member that has the option to qualify the dialogue through questions. Internet are thus also aimed at merging knowledge basis with the students in one shared experience, who starts at a different point of understanding (Ellis, 1993).
