Students worked in small groups collaborate to answer questions related to catheter insertion, extraction, and maintenance. The method that was used to evaluate the students is manually grading of the post-quiz to measure the students’ cognitive ability to retain the information. No apparatus or equipment used during the data collection. Miller and Metz (2014), investigates and compared the perception of the active learning process between students who were exposed to the active learning process in the classroom and members who relied on the lecture as their primary teaching strategy. The study concludes that 89% of students who engages in the active learning process through gaming in the classroom predicted favorable results in the students’ performances and motivated to learn the
Dr. Derek Cabrera’s thought on metacognition, human and education is absorbing. He shares perspectives on four universal thinking skills: Distinctions; “Systems; Relationships; and Perspectives (DSRP)” that should be taught in learning institutions. Dr. Cabrera states, “Thinking is simply a process of structuring information and doing something meaningful with it.” Dr. Cabrera also argues that people lack critical analytical thinking, great at school work, but not real life situation. Education needs to be fixed from the bottom up; that can be accomplished by teaching thinking skills. Dr. Cabrera suggests six types of thinking: “Creative Thinking; Critical Thinking; Systems Thinking; Interdisciplinary Thinking; Scientific Thinking; and Emotional
At the same time, students must participate in class and think more about what the teacher is describing. This is all accomplished through active learning. The topic of active vs. passive learning has been a popular one amongst the academic community for many years. In Andrew Delbanco’s book College: What It Was, Is and Should Be, Delbanco says “a mind must work to grow”, in reference
However, Jacotot’s emancipation teaching method, with some modifications, is the way for UNF to dramatically increase the job engagement for its graduates. First, I recommended a form of Socratic problem-based learning. By this, I meant that there would be few lectures at UNFs; instead, the students would be given books prescribed by the faculty. The professors would then assign problems for the students to solve through their own reading and analysis over a period of weeks. Unlike pure emancipation, there would be a specific learning goal; therefore, the professors would offer guidance, as well as critique their work-in-progress.
Throughout the semester its been clear that the four agreements, which are staying engaged, experiencing discomfort, speaking your truth, and expecting and accepting non-closure have been used to guide us in discussions and activities in class. These four agreements have been particularly useful when it came to interacting with my peers and I looked forward to overcoming and facing some of the agreements that aren’t always easy to face. In this paper I will share five examples of how I expirenced each of these agreements in the classroom, and how they will be useful in the future. The first agreement, which is staying engaged means that one remains morally, emotionally, intellectually, and socially involved. A specific example in where I used
In Helsel and Greenberg’s (2007) study, they use the Self-Regulated Strategy Development model (SRSD) to help students build their independence in their writing. SRSD is an observational approach to teaching students how to become effective writers. The model is organized into five stages. The first stage is “Build Background Knowledge.” Students work one-on-one with their teacher to build background knowledge about the given topic and the teacher helps by providing skills and strategies that the students might need to understand the material. In stage 2 “Discuss it”, the teacher discusses and describes the many strategies used to write different types of writing.
This allows a teacher that is willing to use some new approach to keep student engagement high because of the new and different ways they are challenging the student. Keeping students engaged in a classroom learning with technology is a great tool for education and educators to help make learning more fun for students. If you make learning more fun for students, then they will take a greater investment in it and might be able to take the learning into their own hands, which should be the greatest goal in
There is a case study that may explain this relationship. Many students used to attend lectures and tutorials with notebook or tablet. I would like to find out whether dividing attention on both lecturers and devices at the same time influences the learning results. A research was conducted by Gay and Hembrooke measuring the impacts of multitasking in learning progress (Gay & Hembrooke, 2003). 50 percent of the students were assigned as a control, who were studying with a laptop.
In addition, the instructor cannot be able to control the behavior of learners for they are meeting in virtual classes, a very important aspect of classroom management in education is ignored. Technology in the field of education is a powerful tool since its future pays main focus on technology advancement and multi-screening on education thus triggering interest among students. For example, it helps leaners advance in skills like; creative thinking, problem solving, inquiry skills, argumentative skills, designing skills among others. Future oriented education adds whole categories to education that are not in the curriculum today. These include effective action, effective relationships and effective accomplishment.
When it comes to educating the minds of young children there are many positive benefits, both on a personal level and individually. Creating strong, lasting relationships with the children and families, contributing to the growth process of developing minds, advance personal pedagogy, and so much more. Students’ success becomes your own, and to parents, you become a beacon of support for their child’s development and education. Being an early childhood professional is more than just being a teacher; it’s taking on a role that requires endless patience, forever love, and countless smiles. For me personally, my teaching beliefs and values have always stemmed from personal experiences within the classroom and implementation of curriculum that
