Abstract

Since the late 1990s, there has been a rapid development and popularization of ICT-based educational content utilized in primary and secondary schools. This has occurred under the rapid development of information and communications technology(ICT), and the launching of the Korean government's plan for comprehensive education innovation.. As a result, various new ICT-based educational content(here in known as “educational content”), produced in both public and private sectors, has been used and the government has been more interested to evaluate the rate of use of educational content rather than the educational effect of such content on student performance. This study therefore analyzes the effect of using educational content among teachers and students of primary and secondary schools. The teacher surveyed claims that this educational content is used effectively during the preparation, teaching, and evaluation stages of teaching. They were very receptive to the use of educational content in teaching and student’s learning. Similarly, students also believe that using this type of educational content is helpful in improving academic achievement and enhance their learning. According to them, the use of educational content is mainly helpful in fueling interest in the subject, inspiring motivation, and facilitating understanding of concepts and content to be learned. Although both teachers and students expressed immense satisfaction with the use of educational content, they also stressed their need for suitable contents that has more variety and therefore enabling great active interaction and participation to the different needs of students.
