Rationale of the study
As computer technology is rapidly changing our world, it has permitted man not only
store his knowledge, but to organize, manipulate, and modify it systematically.
Organizations nowadays are adapting to office automation systems. Most schools use
automated systems to lessen their work and minimize their problems in their system, and
ACT(Asian College of Technology) is one of the school that is would like to adapt
computerization for a more productive output.
Yet, there are still problems that the school can not avoid such as storing of the
student’s records in their scholarship programs. Some files are inevitably misplaced or lost
because of the manual recording process.
Because of the problems the personnel had encountered, the researchers are proposing
a study entitled “Automated Recording and Monitoring System of Public Servant Scholarship
Grant Program in ACT” which claims to suggest full automation of their current manual system
especially in the storing the files of the student records.
Theoretical Background of the study
Role of the Information Technology to society
Since time immemorial, people are looking for ways that can enhance the quality
of life and make things easier. Technology is the most powerful change agent in
society. It is defined as the technical means people use to improve their surroundings.
It is knowledge of using tools and machines to do task efficiently.
Information Technology or IT, is hailed as one of the most strategic and
pervasive technologies. Advances in IT have been accelerating at an unparallel face in
history and will continue to radically transform the world and how society operates in
the future with these advances, we are rapidly becoming an information society where
“knowledge workers” depend on computer-generated information to accomplish their
In this case, these transformations have devastating effects on our society
especially on individuals and communities for it enables them to enhance their social
and economic well being and participate more actively in society and the economy,
internationally as well as nationally.
Information Technology in Schools
In many researches and studies, it has been shown that technologies have
positive effects in the instructional process, on basic and advanced skills. In fact, it is
changing the instructional process itself.
As an illustration, schools today are now embracing technology and used it to
transform the content and made of instruction. Most schools now are using computers
to teach the students as will as help of the teachers to do their work with ease and
speed. Computers can interact with students to enhance the learning process.
Computer-based instruction can individualize instruction and give instant feedback to
students. Computers are patient and non-judgmental, thus motivating the student’s to
In addition, some schools in the U.S have attempted to integrate distance
education into their programs. The hallmarks of “distance education” or “distance
learning” are the separation of teacher and learner in space and time, the volitional
control of learning by the student rather than the distant instructor and non contiguous
communication between student and teacher.
