They will learn what is taught to them by their teachers. They enjoy challenges because they are learning and not competing. They see their teacher as a role model who gives them information. It is very important to keep young learns interested and motivated in whatever activity you have planned for them. If they enjoy the activity they will absorb it quickly.
Motivation/Attribution Definition/Role of Learning Motivation: it is what makes people do something, the internal drive to accomplish a task. Keeps them moving in certain directions and engaged in certain activities (Ormrod, 2008). Attribution: What people think about what causes them to succeed or fail, as in do they feel they had ability or was the response due to just luck (Ormrod, 2008). Increase in Learning Motivation is essential in learning activities it helps people to determine success in their learning through the accomplishment of goals and goal setting. Attribution is especially helpful in attaining the goals in learning because success that is explained by their belief about the learning experience can motivate further learning endeavors, however it can also be detrimental if the learning experience is not what was expected.
Outcome 1.2 Explain current theoretical approaches to creativity and creative learning in early childhood. Creativity is more about the process rather than the end product. This process is useful for many reasons like develop confidence, good relationships, find out what talents do they have and teaches us about what can we give it to others. Being involved in creative activities is fun and absorbing for children. It helps children to have positive experiences and develop important abilities like Collaboration- being happy to work together Concentration- focusing on what they are doing Communication and language- developing good communication through talking, listening and writing Developing good relationships- working together and making new friends Imagination- bringing ideas to life Physical activity- participating in activities that encourage movement Problem solving- being able to explore different solutions Outcome 1.3 Critically analyse how creativity and creative learning can support young children’s emotional, social, intellectual, communication and physical development.
Secondly, children increase social and cognitive development from positive influences that are communicated by teachers. Emphasis around Vygotsky’s theory will explain the basis of social interaction facilitating learning with the benefit of good communication (Eggen & Kauchak, 2010). Thirdly, teachers must develop high level of written and verbal communication skills. This will develop good relationships between the teacher, student and family leading to proper educational practices that will improve student’s overall outcomes will enhance their literacy skill. Finally, educators with effective communication skills prove an ability to adapt teaching methods to suit the needs of students they are supporting (Kearns, 2012), and with appropriate delivery of good communication, student learning increases.
Explain why effective communication is important in developing positive relationships with Children Young people Adults Ans: Importance of effective communication with Children Communication is a key factor in developing positive relationships with human beings,the importance of effective communication with children can never be denied. Being a teaching assistant ,you have to model yourself in a best possible way to communicate with children as they learn and absorb your methods of communication. In order to develop and maintain positive relationships with children ,I have to communicate politely and clearly so that they can understand me. By using simple vocabulary and positive body language I can get their attention more easily and my friendly approach would make me trustworthy for them and they can discuss their problems or share their ideas with me. For example,in my placement,my friendly and polite attitude towards reception children makes it easy for them to bring their complaints to me;if they are hurt or hit by somebody.
Communicating About a Child's Progress Monitoring student's progress on objectives facilitates communication in the classroom, with parents, and with students. When data is summarized - and displayed in an understandable fashion - professionals may communicate more easily with families and with other service providers. Children may also receive praise and encouragement when their progress is shared with them. Demonstrating Accountability
Techniques To Engage Students According to Catherine Sutton- Brady and Nicole Stegemann, when a student is actively learning within the classroom they become more engaged in lessons and will increase their logical thinking skills, as well as them understanding the course material deeper (237). When students became interested in a lesson teaching it is not difficult, there is more interaction within students and questions to be asked. There are more opinions being stated and effort being put into understanding the course. When we are actively participating in the learning experience, we are motivated to learn more. "... the passive student is the greatest challenge facing educators and finding ways to engage them is vital to teaching and learning success"(Cohen 1991).
All students have the right to be provided with the opportunity to explore and engage in activities, which enrich their learning. When developing a meaningful curriculum, many factors need to be considered. Some of these include the learning styles of individuals and the environment in which the learning takes place. The curriculum approach that I believe best supports my personal philosophy and is most suited in providing children with the best opportunities to learn and grow is that of the “Constructivist Approach” along side aspects of “Maria Montessori”. The constructivist approach is the theory that children construct their own understanding and knowledge of the world, through experiencing things and reflecting on those experiences (Jonassen, n.d).
It is important that children are able to access this whole range of learning opportunities, as they learn from watching and imitating others as well as by exploring and experimenting. The Early Years Foundation Stage Profile Handbook defines child-initiated learning in the following way: ‘A self initiated activity is an
The result? Children who are engaged and interested in learning, and eager to advance.” This education stresses the point in allowing students to be interested and eager to learn which allows students to succeed in the chosen subject with flying colors. Students study the topic or subject they find interesting. They also create their own pace to master the subject that’s being studied. Teachers guide them through their learning and help them stay on track.
