• Furthermore, Piaget also talked about Discovery learning. This relates to the idea that children learn best through doing and actively exploring. This shall suit my subject area as in a Physical Education class, much practice are involved, this will best suit my students to be engaged thoroughly in class. • According to Piaget 's theory children should not be taught certain concepts until they have reached the appropriate stage of cognitive development. Personally, I think this is very useful to us PE Teachers to understand this fact so as to plan and for the betterment of our students also.
Daycare motivates them to share by passing the object back and forth while saying "my turn, your turn." Daycare teaches children exceptional motor skills, social skills and connection skills to prepare the child for school. Daycare focuses on the importance of the relationships built through connections. The first and most grounded of any association is the safe relationship. In this kind of relationship, the child introduced to someone they can trust and feel safe around.
I believe by using this approach you are able to understand a children’s as an active learner in a holistic way, you allow for children to demonstrate their learning in different ways which best the learning styles of that individual child. Education is there to help better our future generations we should be willing to do what is necessary to cater for the needs of the diversity in the learners we teach, there can’t be a standardized testing for children from diverse backgrounds, each child has something new to teach us. We just need to take the time to listen and learn from them, this were valuing Indigenous communities and understanding their culture helps in understanding your students as a cultural
The first step that must be taken is adjusting the teachers learning and/or instructing skills. The teachers should be required to attend a class where they have the opportunity to learn the material better, thus allowing them a more beneficial way to interpret their skills to the students, so that the students can better retain the material. The teachers should learn what material is most important to teach, in order to help the student be better prepared for life, considering that most of their poverty-stricken students will not be able to attend college. If teachers focus their attention on the learning experiences of students, and make changes based on what they know about teaching that promotes learning, students will understand more of what they are learning, retain what they learn longer, and learn more than just the content (Weimer, 2011, Para. 5).
I agree that play-based learning offers different opportunities for children to explore and create, they can also discover new things and communicate with peer during free-play time. Frobel said that “Play is the highest expression of human development in childhood, for it alone is the free expression of what is in a child's soul” (Froebel, 1887). He believed in the importance of play in a child’s learning as creative activity. Play provided the platforms for children’s physical, emotional, social and intellectual development which are essential elements in educating the “whole” children allowing them to use all imaginative powers and physical movements to discover their interests. Children are able to develop and practise motor skills and bodily movements through physical plays.
STANDARD: 6 TEACHERS Artifact: Special Learning Opportunity workshop Experience from child Dev. 143; Science, and Math for Young children I chose this artifact because this Standard is about the important teacher should be training to be up date of the new discoveries in Early Childhood Development to offer a high quality education. I learned from this artifact that workshops are helpful to educator and not educator, where the purpose is to teach the children by encourage and guide them to explore the world.
In the most general sense, it usually means encouraging students to use active techniques (experiments, real-world problem solving) to create more knowledge and then to reflect on and talk about what they are doing and how their understanding is changing. The teacher makes sure he/she understands the students ' preexisting conceptions, and guides the activity to address them and then build on them. Constructivism has many benefits namely: Children learn more, and enjoy learning more when they are actively involved; students learn how to think and understand and transfer learning; students create organizing principles that they can take with them to other learning settings; it gives students ownership of what they learn, since learning is based on students ' questions and explorations, and often the students have a hand in designing the assessments as well; it engages the students ' initiatives and personal investments in their journals, research reports, physical models, and artistic representations; and it promotes social and communication skills by creating a classroom environment that emphasizes collaboration and exchange of
Big book is an effective tool for young children. Moreover to introduce a lesson it will help to read a story relate in a topic, so young children will show interest and they will engage in the classroom. As a result, it will help the teacher to carry the lesson without any difficulty. Big book is one of the wonderful visual aid for children to use in the class room. It is important to our children in educational life.
Fair-test enquiries may be initiated by the teacher, with structured ways to guide the children. Although, children should really be encouraged to think of their own questions, taking greater responsibility for their learning (Loxley et al., 2014). Hollins et al., (2001) agrees with the use of questioning to prompt the children during a fair test, stating how the teacher can help refine a prediction for the children by the use of open-ended
In an society where people focus on results society tends to loss track in the middle. This can be applied to schooling because students today focus on passing the test instead of understanding the meaning behind the things they learned. There are many ways to help students to look at the deeper meaning of topics they learned. However, personally I believe the way to get them to understand these topics are to make them active and engaged learners. In my eyes a person who is a go learner is open minded to learning new facts and listens to opinions that may conflict their own.
The career that I want to go into would be counseling. I would want to be an elementary school counselor. I think that I would be good as a school counselor because I like helping kids, I can listen to what they have to say, and I can try to give them advice. I think this is the right career for me. One reason why I think that this career would be good for me is because I like helping kids.
