One of the key responsibilities I feel for a teacher is to provide information, wisdom. In order to share their knowledge and understanding of a subject or topic a teacher needs to have a deep understanding of the topic that they are teaching. However alongside this a teacher should not claim to know it all, and be willing to learn from their students. ‘Knowledge may be seen as a level of awareness, consciousness or familiarity gained by experience, learning or thinking.’ (Jarvis 1987). It is important that the teacher appreciate any input from their students, whether the answer is correct or not.
Different people adjust to different strategies. Most people adjust to more than one strategy. We just need to identify which ones through assessment. How the Awareness of Learning Strategies Influence Teaching and Learning It is important for teachers to understand what a student is going through in their process of learning new information. If you know the learning style of the student, it is easier to convey the message you are trying to convey.
Training methods may influence one or several learning outcomes. Once you have identified a learning method, the next step is to consider the extent to which the method facilitates learning and transfer of training, the costs related to development and use of the method, and its
It is important to know the difference between the sequence and the rate of development to recognise and highlight each child's needs in all stages of development. Some children and young people may need extra support in developing. These patterns will help to plan effectively and ensures the child gains the correct aid they need to progress in areas they may find challenging. 2:1 Children and young peoples development can be influenced by a range of personal factors. These factors can be a range of different things, from health status, disabilities, sensory impairment, generic inheritance and learning difficulties.
This is the process operating when the tutor explains the assignment. • Depending on student's previous experiences and expectations, their perceptual filters will interfere with the message that they receive. • Both the tutor's verbal and non-verbal communication – in particular, aspects of paralanguage such as emphasis – will communicate which bits of the instructions are most important. Verbal communication varies in its accessibility for students, as they may have different levels of understanding of the instructions (especially if English is not their first language). Non-verbal language may support or contradict verbal messages.
1. Explain the purpose of the following types of assessment in learning and development • Initial Assessment • Formative Assessment • Summative Assessment Formative Assessment Initial assessment provides the information needed to plan an individual’s learning and improve their chances of learning effectively. Without it, there are only assumptions. It’s always possible to make some predictions about learners from an application form or selection test, but it’s an insecure basis for planning. Learners themselves bring assumptions about learning based on the past, and some of these may get in the way of looking ahead to a new way of learning.
Other behaviours that could be of concern and interfere with learning could be attention maintenance, hyperactivity, or severe withdrawal. The point of concern is if the behaviour is something that hinders the child from functioning in a productive way, it is something that should trigger a teacher to seek outside assistance. Depending on the situation different referrals may have to be used. It may be appropriate to just have support from another adult within the school. However, there is a wider range of specialist support
UNIT 012 Principles of assessment in lifelong learning Main methods of assessments in life long learning are: academic (knowledge) and vocational (performance). Dependent on the subject, the assessment method may need to be adapted, using and adapting both these type assessments will ensure that the students acquire optimum achievement during my lesson. To decide which of these is most appropriate, the assessment cycle will be used: • Initial assessment - used to identify if my students already know something about the subject to be assessed and the needs of my students (for example more support). • Assessment planning - used to plan the suitable types and method of assessment following relevant organisational guidelines. • Assessment activity - to determine this, the method could be assessorled like completing questioning or student-led like gathering evidence of competence.
Each individual has his or her own unique learning strengths and weaknesses. It is therefore vital for teachers to deliberately use a variety of methods to relate to these individual styles effectively. Understanding students’ learning styles could enable teachers to improve and adapt their teaching styles and strategies to meet student’s needs. When poor results and/or non-attentiveness are evident in the classroom this may be a mechanism for the educator to review the teaching methods used. It is not as important to figure out what style the student is, but to recognise how and why the student is learning in such a way and how to encourage their
Promoting Inclusion Equality And Diversity Within Learners Theory 3 As a tutor my aim is for the students to gain competence in and a full understanding of the subject. In order for students to do this it is important for the tutor to be mindful of the issues concerning equality, diversity and Inclusion. In terms of equality and diversity the relevant factors we must be sensitive to when teaching are disability, sexual orientation, gender, ethnicity and race, age, religious beliefs and economic and social needs of the students. The diverse backgrounds and experiences of individual students are what make teaching so exciting and challenging. The tutor needs to employ a number of strategies to promote inclusive learning to ensure that all the students are involved in the learning process.
