Page 32 of our classroom management book states, “Our goal as teachers should be creating an environment where children want to be and learn” and I could not agree more. I want my classroom to be a place where students’ thoughts and ideas are valued and where all voices are heard, in one way or another. I find the emotional environment of a classroom to be extremely important, especially in younger grades, because it can assist students in creating a positive outlook on school, for that year and for years to
“Good feedback practice is not only about providing accessible and usable information that helps students improve their learning, but it is also about providing good information to teachers” (Nicol and Macfarlane, 2006, p. 214). Quality assessment and effective feedback have a strong impact in systemizing educational governance. In the same way, it can enable all learners to enhance their learning or leads to increase learning and teachers in their teaching. Some research evidence such as Nicol and Macfarlane –Dick (2006)
School and teachers can influence the extent and quality of learning for all students. Teacher’s beliefs, practices and attitudes are important for understanding and improving educational processes. They are closely linked to teachers’ strategies for coping with challenges in their daily professional life. Educators have control over numerous factors that influence motivation, achievement and behaviour of students. They are turning around their approach into a focus on creating positive school climate and responsive classroom as part of holistic quality education based on child rights where there is effective teaching and classroom management, thus enhancing students’ learning experiences.
and design instruction that develops students' self-perceptions of their academic skills. And by large will lead a way for in making Quality primary education a dream come true. The present study titled ‘Teacher Efficacy in Relation to Teacher Motivation and Personality of Primary School Teachers is a survey study. In this study the researcher has made an earnest attempt to find out the relationship between Teacher Efficacy and its dimensions with Teacher Motivation and Personality of Primary School Teachers. This chapter presents the explanation and discussion on the above issues under the sub-title theoretical frame work, present status of the study, related to Teacher Efficacy, Teacher Motivation and Personality.
In schools today, many teachers influence Peer-Assisted Learning Strategies (PALS) on their students in various classrooms to show the importance of group work and how working with others can be significantly helpful and also effective towards the improvement of grades. Peer assisted learning strategies have not only shown an improvement in students’ grades in school, but also serve the purpose of helping students learn to listen to others perspectives besides their own, and develop their own voice resulting in an increase in their own self-confidence. Peer-assisted learning strategies were created to serve the needs of those having difficulties in various academics, and are also used to aid English Language learners. These peer-tutoring programs are
Teachers conduct their assessment work based on various strategies and tools with one common objective, which is to improve students’ performance. Based on the article, “Formative Assessment That Truly Informs Instruction”, these strategies and tools can be grouped into four types: Observations, Conversations, Student Self-Evaluation, and Artifacts of Learning. For observations strategy, a teacher needs to carefully observe the way a student engage in language use and learning. Through the observations, the teacher is able to identify the student’s strengths and challenges. Then, the teacher can plan supportive classroom learning more effectively with the aim to improve student’s academic performance.
Technology self-efficacy has come to play a major role in the preparation and implementation of educators who can successfully use educational technology to enhance learning (ELDaou, 2016)54. Self-efficacy theory has been used in research concerned with instructors’ intentions to use information technology (Player-Koro, 2012)60. Instructors’ self-efficacy beliefs, contribute significantly to the level of their motivation and performance as well (Bandura and Locke, 2003)53. This means that self-efficacy beliefs require more attention in education. ICT Self-efficacy is instructor’s belief or thinking regarding to his or her ability to connect or integrate ICT.
Through the involvement of school community members in these key decisions, SBM can create more effective learning environments for students. WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES? According to the American Association of School Administrators (AASA), the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP), the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), and
Chapter 5: CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS This chapter will draw out summary of the results, highlight limitations of the study, and suggest recommendations. 5.1. Summary of the results: The major results of this study were represented as follows: In term of teachers’ beliefs of using formative assessment in the classroom, it can be apparent that English teachers have positive attitudes towards formative assessment. They believe that the basics of formative assessment such as feedback, sharing learning goals, questioning and self-peer assessment should be applied in their classrooms. Moreover, among 4 basic principles of formative assessment, teachers favored questioning most.
Introduction Enhancing learning for students involves more than just being able to apply general learning and teaching principles or guidelines. In Educational Studies 1: Classroom Learning and Student Development, we have been learned about how students learn. Most importantly, it involves inquiry-based activities which familiarize us with the roles of teachers in promoting learning and catering for student diversity and individual differences. Throughout the past lessons, one of the most influential, inspiring theories is the theories of motivation to understand and improve educational processes, which means helping our students see the true value of what they are doing and giving them reasonable expectation of success in achieving it. At the beginning, my
