They can also make some of the class work into a game for the students. Instructors can foster extrinsic motivation by offering students rewards for doing something good. If they don’t stay motivated or do good punish them until they get to where they need to be. While writing this paper I describe the difference between intrinsic motivation and extrinsic motivation. Also I gave some of the challenges that students in an online learning face that are
It was also important to give them an opportunity to perform these skills and sequences in front of other members of the class so that they could get feedback on things they were not performing well and the things they were. While going through my lesson it dawned on me very quickly how some of the tasks went hand in hand, in that after you do one the other usually follows or how having an application task after a series of extension and refinement tasks allows the students to showcase whether they were able to pick up what you were laying down for them. B. I learned while teaching the lesson something that I feel I should have expected but actually did not at all. That is to never under estimate
However, little to no information is being retained if the person does not have a ‘read/write’ learning style. In this case, something more needs to take place. An intervention is needed, whether it is a hands-on approach, a visual approach, or listening to someone stating the information out loud. Education is changing from simple lecture classes to something more because the importance of reaching out to all learning styles. “The importance of evaluating students’ learning styles and developing instructional methods that teach to specific learning styles has gained considerable support in the field of education, with many organizations and companies offering professional development courses for teachers and educators focused on the topic of learning styles.” (Rogowsky, B.
Most teachers find what works for them and this is how they teach. It is important to help students to learn by allowing time for debates. Debates allow students to voice their opinion and concerns without being wrong. Debates are merely opinions. The classroom environment should be inviting and children oriented.
Background For background information, I am studying teaching in order that I can have an understanding of how my students are learning, and some experience of teaching, so that when I come to assess them for their NVQs I appreciate how they got to the point of submitting their workbooks to me. Roles, responsibilities and boundaries The simple way of describing my role as a teacher would be to say that I am there to ensure my learners get their qualifications (Wilson 2008:4), but the Lifelong Learning Sector covers more than just formal qualifications; many people just want to learn for the enjoyment of doing so, or an employer may have set up an internal training course without a nationally recognised qualification at the end. Learners could be aged 14 upwards and have many different learning goals. As a teacher I will do more than just deliver the lesson. I will have had to design the lesson and plan its delivery so that it holds everyone’s interest.
The second is the “process” of lessons involving activities in order for the students to have an understanding and grasp of the subject matter that most of the time uses flexible grouping. Teachers can use flexible groups and have students assigned to like groups listening to books on tape or accessing specific internet sources. This stage of differentiation allows students to learn based either on what method is easiest for them to collect knowledge, or what may challenge
It also allows them to increase the higher order of thinking within the lesson and bring it up to a level of understanding to where each child is challenged based on their own method of learning. Although the first competency of rigorous learning and planning the lessons are encouraged, another competency of this component is professional development. Professional development helps teachers with every aspect of their work environment. We incorporate professional development in our organization by attending all of our staff meetings, monthly grade level meetings, and in-district workshops. The professional development meetings inform the teachers of how to incorporate rigorous learning into their lessons and also explains what the district expects to see from the staff.
I was able to gain experience in reflective learning by various activities, such as group presentation and mock interviews that was as part of the module. I was able to reflect on feedbacks given to me by other students. This outlined both my strength and weakness and also equipped me with confidence needed to succeed in the labour market. Entwistle (1998) pointed out that in order to achieve a good grade, Students needs to organise themselves strategically. This will involve time management, reading the right learning materials, putting efforts in studies as well as knowing what teachers expect from you.
Many people struggle to learn when forced to just listen to a lecture or read a book or article. For this reason, creative ways must be utilized to accomplish the learning goal. It is believed to be effective to work in pairs, role play while discussing materials, debate, use case study, take part in cooperative learning, conduct student led review exercises, play games, keep journals/logs, concept map or utilize short written exercises such as a one minute essay. Active learning is described as when students are doing more than just listening to a lecture. Students are more likely to discover, process and apply the information.
• Allows teachers to focus on learning instead of discipline. • This takes away from teaching time because you are preparing rules and procedures. Kagan, Kyle, and Scott's "Win-Win Discipline" • It helps bring out the potential of the students even through disciplining them. • It is very clear for expectations that are passed to the students. • It stresses the importance of using the classroom to help the students overcome negative attitudes.
