If there is anyproperty that you have that cannot be stolen from you, that is Education. Thisis acquired when a person goes to school and teachers are the one who transfersinformation, this information includes lessons that can be used for dailyliving, additional knowledge, transferring culture and many more. Knowing thateducation is important, educational systems are developed in order to bewell-ordered in teaching the students.For the past yearsteachers use chalkboards, cartolinas, manila paper, etc. as their means ofteaching the students, while students use books as a material to learn.
Students often also use books as their reference when looking for the tasksgiven by their teachers, this kind of teaching is called the traditional way ofteaching or conventional way of teaching.Ahmed (2013) said that thisconventional way of teaching is often teacher centered hence the students justintake what the teacher is giving them, thus their teacher is the one whocontrols the discussion. This classrooms merely study what is in theirtextbooks and notes while teachers are the one who initiates and talk and thestudents are going to listen to what the teacher is saying (Li, 2016).

Asstated by Cambridge Center for Sixth-form studies (2017) this traditional wayof teaching is called an “Assignment Study Recitation Study” whereinstudents needed to study and memorize their assignments for they are going tohave a recitation the next day. This teaching strategy also is more focused onexam results, assignments, recitation, etc. rather than activities (Lynch, 2010).In addition to that, the goal of this is the mastery of core subjects likemath, science, english and such.
In this type of strategy, parents are assuredthat their children are able to cope same lessons that they learned(Huson,2018).The traditional type of teaching only has few materials inlearning which are used since it concerns more to the mastery of the learningof the students.As time goes by the rapid change of technologychanges the way how people live including the way how teachers teach theirstudents, from manual to online, from books to eBooks, from manila paper to PowerPointpresentation and currently the usage ofvideo presentations and online exams are widely used by teachers when teachingtheir students .
This kind of teaching is often called technology-aided teachingor multimedia-mediated classrooms, this type of teaching is oftenlearner-centered strategy. When we define multimedia it means that text,images, videos, numeric and other forms are combined in an environment that isdigital, thus teaching is more visually applied rather than theoretically.Students use mobile phones or tablets as their means of studying rather thanusing the textbooks as their material in learning. According to Li (2016)technology helps in the communication of a students peers and teachers thusthis kind of teaching enhance the students learning capacity since they can seeactual simulations and examples of the lessons taught by their teacher. Thiscan also help the students to be encouraged in learning and acquire theattention of learners since they are able to see the actual visualization ofwhat their teacher is teaching.
Here teachers are facilitators, in this case,students are allowed to know things on their own together with other studentsthey are with. Learners, therefore, are included in the process of learningmore than just listeners. This can also advance students in theirproblem-solving skills, critical thinking skills and their self-learning toprogress.Nowadays some teachers still use the traditionalway of teaching their students while others utilize the usage of technology astheir means.
In line to this, this research seeks to know the effectiveness ofusing different teaching strategies to see which is more effective educationalsystem to be used in teaching the students
