Human capabilities are not wholly adequate to the demands of the modern teaching and learning enterprise. Here is where we aid the information tools as a facilitator. The impression of visual and audio tools are far greater is learners in registering the learning outcomes in their memory than the passive teaching of lecturing. Dramatic changes in technology have increased the variety and accessibility of information tools. Online Google Apps, Presentation software’s, desktops and palm devices, course management tools, clickers and lecture capture tools, even flipping the classrooms are some of the latest information tools. Students are made to understand, communicate, associate and create by using the tools. This facilitates the transformation of knowledge & skills into products and solutions. Knowledge stored in the short term memory is transformed into long term memory by using the tools. Modern tools improve learning outcomes by the use of improved methodologies and better evaluation. Advantages of using the tools are better presentation by the teachers and proper understanding of the learners. Information tools facilitate interactive classes resulting in an enjoyable experience. Plenty of credible and resourceful websites makes the learners’ accessibility easier. Slow learners are able to learn at their own pace, away from classrooms. Limited involvement of teachers in using information tools is a challenge. Resource limitation and knowledge and skills of the teachers are barriers. But these are attended by proper approaches to solve the issues. Research report by ‘Institute of Multimedia Education’ in Japan proves that use of Information tools has significant and possible impact on student achievement in terms of knowledge accumulation, practice skill and presentation skill.
