I’m all in favor of using technology in the classroom. I think computers and television are great ways for students to have access to a lot of information. I just don’t think they should be the only tools I have as a student. I also need teachers and other students to help me get
When they take the homework policy home, the parents have a good idea what would be expected of them concerning their homework. Also, the idea of having the children work on developing the homework information on the board makes them feel like they have a little control in the classroom. In scenario two, self-motivation is practiced in Mr. Collet’s
Second, since they have the conversation club including classmates and others English learners, they can practice and learn each other during that time, so speaking English will become their daily routine by doing that activity. Third, interacting with the native speakers provides the social benefits such as cultural differences and other perspectives. In addition, foreign students who have the friendship with the native speaking students become more integrated into the school community. Some international students who are not learning the English as a second language may object to speak only English in the class room. They may ask why the students have to speak only English during class hours.
Sometimes students are confused about deciding which class is better for them to take, Online classes may be easier for the student, but both offer interesting points of similarities in the areas of environment, teaching instruments and communication to the students. Students have a good study environment in the traditional class, where as an online class can be taken at any place as long as there’s a basic internet hookup. Students who study outside of the classroom face problems such as, distractions and disturbances while studying. As example if students are studying at home, they are disturbed by noise of family members; noise of machines, such as TV’s and radios. Because students in my opinion need appropriate context to concentrate on their subject, the traditional classes suit best for providing a good study environment without the distractions.
One advantage is that computers act as a teacher’s aid. With class sizes increasing, a teacher can spend only a limited amount of time with each student. A report entitled Computer Advantages: Tutoring Individuals quotes doctor of psychology Frederick Bennett as saying “with computers as tutors, no student will be overwhelmed because he or she is missing the fundamentals. The computer will repeat the material until each lesson has been sufficiently mastered” (Bennett, 1999, p.3). Computers will give all students in the classroom an opportunity to adequately learn the lesson of the day.
A student makes a video recording of a professor teaching a class. The student posts the video to a website. The answers list information that the student used or chose on the computer on which he was processing the video. Which of the following answers is the least likely to impact the size of the video file? D. A choice for the number of frames per second 6.)
Through weebly FHS communicates to hundreds of students when they are at home or in school. Students can use weebly to improve their exam results or can gain knowledge about certain topic that they do not have any previous knowledge about. Through weebly students can also take extra lessons when they are at home. These lessons are provided by teachers to students in order to improve their knowledge of the certain topics. An example of this is Mr Bradford (head of maths department) provides online lessons to GCSE’S and A level math students so that they can learn certain topics that they are weak at.
When we watch the videos the teachers were thinking out loud and discussing the little voice in her head that tells her things while she is reading, like “oh I have no idea what I just read” or “hum I wonder who this person is?” or “wow that’s neat!”. The students were able to connect with her and start thinking about reading and listening to the voice inside their head they then wrote or discussed with a peer what they thought about the reading passage. A literacy activity I could do in my classroom would be a think aloud. I could explain exactly what I am thinking while reading a passage, then have the students read another passage and practice talking about what they read and where thinking to a peer. I could also incorporate highlighters or underlining strategies to incorporate note taking and thinking while reading into this lesson.
• The Flipped Classroom: This popular technological approach has gotten to everybody’s ears by now. It is a practice in which, students watch lecture videos as homework and discussion is carried on them in the class-time by the teachers. It has resulted in a remarkably better student performance, with noticeable grade boost-up. Students can now learn at their own pace and save class-time for interaction. • Educational Technology improves student learning outcomes: Evidence suggests that educational technologies can improve student achievement, so long as such tools are integrated thoughtfully into teaching and learning.
Here teachers can use the audio visual aids to reinforce their teaching in the context of a lecture or activities based lesson. Thereafter, teachers can demonstrate any motivational movie according the needs of situation and relevant topic. Independent Learning In the classroom, films, audio tapes and video tapes can be used instead of personal student teacher contacts. This forms of instruction can be used in continuing government schools where the teachers are not available adequate. Typically, informative and motivational films on selected topics and video tapes transmitted via various TV networks are typical of these types of material.
