Then design and create training manuals, online learning modules and course materials. They also train employees using variety of instructional techniques. They monitor and evaluate programs to ensure they are current and effective. 2. Why is it desirable to maximise individual and team participation in learning events and how can this be done?
Question 2: Evaluate own roles and responsibilities in the lifelong learning sector. Review your roles and responsibilities in identifying and meeting the needs of learners Answer: The role of a teacher in the lifelong learning sector should be to meet the needs of the learner, the organisation and the needs of regulatory bodies. However, the bulk of the role of a teacher in lifelong learning rests on meeting the needs of the learner which borders on playing the role of a learning facilitator. By doing this, the tutor will enable learners to successfully achieve their goals. To better understand this aspect of the role of the teacher, one would have to understand the teaching and learning cycle The teaching and learning cycle The teaching and learning cycle enables training to be effective if all the stages in the cycle if followed through.
Both schema theory and cognitive development are vital to understanding how we can best assist students learning. In this essay I will discuss implications for teaching and learning of cognitive development and schemata. I will also, through a detailed example, demonstrate how an understanding of this topic can positively influence instruction in the classroom. The study of cognitive development has spanned decades and brought to light many different aspects of the human brain. These include looking at different developments our brains experience as we think, perceive and
Planning influences what student will learn, because planning can transform the available time and curriculum materials into activities, assignments and tasks for students so time is the essence of planning. (Woolfolk, Margetts, 2010). To promote effective learning and teaching, implementation of quality plan is significant. Planning should include all the essential ingredients of effective teaching to model the commitment to learning. Effective teaching should acknowledge the impact of factors such as attitudes, perception, expectations, abilities, gender, socio-cultural background and maturity on every learning experience.
I believe that part on being culturally aware in the classroom teacher must build knowledge of what the student bring into the classroom. This concerns areas of the students’ life, students’ family, students’ community, and the students’ cultural background. In this we dive into a deeper level of commitment with our students giving them the message that we as teacher are not here just to be another authority figure, but we are here to be an understanding mentor that is aiding in the process of their growth. Doing so would call teachers to challenge their student on an individual level. With this challenge on the individual level, teachers should begin to learn the background of their students, with this new gained knowledge; know how to approach challenging each student in a different way that best suites the student.
Teachers need direction in order to meet academic proficiencies and to keep student’s interest (Laureate Education, Inc., 2010). After exploring several learning theories and strategies, my own teaching practices are most often modeled by several strategies and learning theories. The Constructivism Theory resonates in some of the techniques I am using in the classroom. Reflecting on student activities and the design my lessons ; I find students are most often engaged in learning activities that are student driven and lead to students constructing their own conclusions. Student often work at stations and learn through team building and planned movement.
In this paper the strong relationship between learning, teaching, and technology is studied from a theoretical and historical perspective to better understand the kind of educational experience needed to prepare our students for the demands of the 21st century. When thinking about technology, learning, and teaching many images may come to our minds depending of our experiences. For the younger generations technology is an inevitable part of their life, inside and outside the school environment. But for older generations it may seem as something separate and external that may help, or not the teaching and learning process. Most of us know the joke about change in education: if Rip Van Winkle awakened today, he may be awed by our means of transportation, our means of communication, and our way of living, that is, until he set foot in a school.
It is important that the teacher appreciate any input from their students, whether the answer is correct or not. This openness will instil confidence and motivation from within the group and help their learning experience. To create a positive learning environment, with a clear structure, a teacher needs to have the ability to plan their lectures or sessions effectively. With clear goals and aims which match up with the curriculum. These lessons need to be creative, incorporate activities and techniques that will engage the learner.
21st Century Teaching and Learning Change is occurring in society at a rapid rate, therefore there is a continuous need to change education as our access to the world, technology and ultimately our career choices are changing. The term 21st century learning refers to the importance of teachers educating their students with the most relevant and up to date tools and materials. There is a need for today’s 21st century students to be taught new skills and learning material than those that were taught to previous generations. Today’s curriculum should include learning materials that are up to date and that will enable students with the skills that they will require in today’s diverse, competitive and technology driven society. While these tools and materials are readily available to students, it is important for the educator to ensure that the information that students research online is understood and not just cited word for word.
Teacher as a Caregiver, Mentor and Model. An effective transformative and empowerment curriculum must be implemented by teachers who have the knowledge skills, and attitudes needed to help students understand the ways in which knowledge is constructed and used to support power group relationships in society. Teachers bring cultural perspectives, values, hope, and dreams to the classroom. Teachers should be aware of their position and their role. Thus, by my this presentation I’m going to talk more about teacher, and his or her role in students life, and especially teachers main role in building character education in society.
