Cathy Davidson point out that: “To be prepare for jobs that have a real future in the digital economy, one needs an emphasis on creative thinking, at all levels…many of these jobs require highly specialized and dexterous problem-solving abilities or interpersonal skills” (60). Younger generation and students are more involved in the educational context in most of cases. Therefore, education context should be clearly and accurately guide students how to obtain creativity and other values for their better lives. During this process, students may suffer some
Develop students' thinking skills because it presented a problem in the early learning and provide flexibility to students to find their own solutions. Students are given discretion in determining alternative solutions. c. Make students apply the knowledge they already have into new situation. It will increase harmony and tolerance attitude because in selecting the most appropriate solution to solve the problem, it needs acceptance attitude from all students. Intani (2015) also stated that the effect of Treffinger learning model implementation included: a.
Although critical thinking skills can be used in exposing misconceptions and bad reasoning, critical thinking can also play an important role in cooperative reasoning and constructive task. Besides, critical thinking also known as "complex thinking" and "high-order thinking". The ability to think critically calls for a higher order thinking than simply the ability to recall information. Critical thinkers need to have knowledge of concepts to an application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation. Central of critical thinking is the ability to think "outside" a piece of writing.
Just as the act of retrieval has been argued to modify memory, so might be the act of thinking. Whenever information in memory interferes with some thinking process, that information may be targeted by an inhibitory process that acts to render it less accessible. In this way, thinking may serve to update our memories in the same way that retrieval does, making information that is no longer less recallable, and thus creating access to information that is more likely to b useful. STATEMENT OF PROBLEM The statement of problem for this experiment is that, ‘whether forgetting will induce creative thinking?’ HYPOTHESIS The hypothesis of this experiment states that the generated uses will be better recalled than the given uses. INDEPENDENT VARIABLE The independent variable (IV) of this experiment is the presentation of items.
Conflict, differences, and disagreement are what drive the learning process. In the process of learning one is called upon to move back and forth between opposing modes of reflection and action and feeling and thinking. 4) Learning is a holistic process of adaptation. It is not just the result of cognition but involves the integrated functioning of the total person – thinking, feeling, perceiving and behaving. It encompasses other specialized models of adaptation from the scientific method to problems solving, decision making and creativity.
Each career path or job has an importance as well; therefore, they should be appreciated. Teachers may also use teaching strategies such as cooperative learning which encourages the sharing of ideas and communication. Utilize hands on activities which may cater to everyone despite differences. Help students to succeed by encouraging authentic assessments such as skits and dramas. Moreover, they can also use the strategy of frequent repetition in order to facilitate long term memory in their students despite the level they are working at.
Many disciplines utilize different terminology to describe essentially the same process, which can add to confusion when selecting and implementing an active learning approach. These differences can be attributed to the disciplines they were promulgated from or the organization that they emanated from. Cooperative Learning Cooperative learning is an approach that involves a small group of leaners working together as a team to solve a problem, complete a task or accomplish a learning activity that will improve their understanding of the subject matter. Every member is responsible not only by the words but also for helping teammates learn (Artzt and Newman, 1990). Accordingly, in cooperative classrooms, the students are expected to help each other, to discuss and argue with sharing their ideas.it helps to assess each other’s current knowledge and fill in gaps in each other understands.
The RTI model relates to differentiated instruction because both concepts encourage teachers to provide multiple avenues for student success. With differentiated instruction, teachers are encouraged to take a key concept and provide different styles of learning for their students, knowing that each student learns in a different way. It also encourages teachers to sometimes change their teaching style in order to reach the educational needs of each student every year. Within the RTI model, teachers are encouraged to understand these student differences, which may often times be from learning disabilities or behavioral needs. Because of this, they are encouraged to put an action plan in place for struggling students that provide alternative ways to learn concepts, in order to help that student achieve educational success.
This means that learning outcomes are clear, learning experiences are designed to assist student achievement of those outcomes, and carefully designed assessment tasks allow students to demonstrate achievement of those outcomes. Assessment is a process that focuses on student learning, a process that involves reviewing and reflecting on practice as academics have always done, but in a more planned and careful way (Ewell, 2000). According to Cox and Godfrey (1997) the process of utilizing assessment and evaluation within the context of education relates to the principles of good teaching and classroom management. Assessment and evaluation are necessary aspects of the teaching process because educational objectives are often very broad in their scope and, as such, are often vague. The teacher must therefore interpret these broad objectives and establish specific and tangible
To make this both a better experience for me and the students at the elementary school it is important to consider how to communicate in a way that will help the students with diverse learning styles. Some of the students will learn by observing while others may learn from doing. Another thing to consider when managing the students and the activities is the different skill levels of the students. It is important to challenge the students that are more advanced while also challenging the students that are not as
