Intelligent learning is adaptable achieving the answer by way of different procedures or routes (building up knowledge) in understanding how to figure out the problem by a variety of schemas. In building up on ones knowledge you empower the learning process by the type of plans of action at ones disposal rather than the rules of formula or rote. On reflection I agree with this view and have used this method within my own understanding and application of mathematical problems. I have found that when I have learnt by rote I have not fully understood how to solve the problem, I have just learnt the formula, thereby not equipping myself by building up on my base knowledge for the solving of the problem. Retaining the knowledge of the number of rules applied to maths is a great strain on the learner.
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.
M2- Self awareness is the ability to know myself, my abilities, limitation and what is my personality is like. Self awareness is a very important tool to have as it helps me to be conscious of my limits and areas for further development. It is hard to do this with a friend because we may not want the friend to know who we really are. Before we can professionally help others as counsellors, we need to be self aware. This is because of the nature of the role of counsellors.
I can learn about information that is trying to be taught by using hands-on problem-solving. I am improving my ability to be become a thinker by finding time to reflect independently on new information and looking for opportunities to work independently. I try to be sensitive to individuals’ feelings by giving positive feedback. I present constructive criticism in a way that I hope others would not take offense to. Knowing others strengths in an online learning environment helps me understand how they think.
Just as much importance should be placed on listening skills. A major part of communicating effectively is ensuring you listen to your colleague’s ideas and views. Try and understand their point of view before communicating yours. Always be aware of how you say something as things can often be misunderstood or taken the wrong way simply because of how something was said. ------------------------------------------ A teaching assistant can offer support and encouragement to other team members by being easy and open to communicate with.
Running head: BENCHMARK ASSESSMENT: INTEGRATING SCIENCE AND MATH Benchmark Assessment: Integrating Science and Math Kathy Harris EED-364 Curr. Mthd & Asmt: Sci & Math October 26, 2011 Benchmark Assessment: Integrating Science and Math Integrating science and math provide numerous opportunities to link the two together. Students sometime are not aware that the two subjects have a close connection. There are areas that math can be associated such as problem solving, practicing measurements, interpreting data which can be shown in charts, graphs and tables. “When mathematics is incorporated into a science lesson, the two disciplines complement each other in such a way that the learning of both science and mathematics is enhanced” (Sherrod, Dwyer & Narayan, 2009, p. 248).
Where thinkers value the principles and rules, feelers consider the people affected by the situation. J or P: Structuring This dimension refers to whether the preference is for being adaptable by keeping open to perceiving new information or getting organized and making quicker decisions. When a person follows explanations open-mindedly, for example, Perception (adaptability) is preferred. On the other hand, if one’s mind is rather quickly made up as to agreement or disagreement, then Judging (organization) is
The traditional system supporters say that learning consists of regular routine and “tough study”. Even if the final output of work or training is not understood, the guidelines must still be followed. The overall learning at the end will be useful irrespective of the student’s interaction or knowledge of objective – it is helpful if the learning was done with delight rather than being oppressed to the student. Many people are going against tradition as they say that a student must know the goal and objective in order to understand in a better way. The counter argument is that a student will learn as per his or her own understanding and a few concepts may be missed.
I really don’t know. It could be a combination of time management, difficulty concentrating, fear and anxiety or negative beliefs. It is important that I change this behavior because it can Problem Solving PROBLEN SOLVING and DECISION MAKING Making a choice between a specific behavior that I would change would be a rather easy decision. The first behavior that I will seriously work
‘A coach also gives a learner genuine and constructive feedback and allows the learner to see that which resides in his blind spot. The coach gives the feedback in a manner that is accurate but not harsh, honest but not discouraging’ (Ng, 2005, p. 36). I feel that people will be more willing to go the extra mile when they feel recognised and appreciated. They will undertake the task from the start with a more optimistic attitude and thus, handling it with more accountability and lessening the need of me having to constantly check on them. On the other hand, when feedback is not handled well, it can result to a potential source of friction and conflict.
