One has to build on prior knowledge for learning to be meaningful and effective. My position on the activities of educating and instructing is that these need to be applicable and well thought out so that the learners can relate and engage fully. The teaching and learning has to meet and accommodate the specific needs of the different learners because when it is related and holistic, the learners can find meaning in the activities that they do. The teacher, therefore, needs to consolidate the teaching and learning process. The process of teaching and learning has the same value as the product, therefore how the children learn has the same significance as what they learn.
Classes where students have opportunities to communicate with each other help students effectively construct their knowledge (Brooks, 1993). So, learning is an interactive process in which the learner develops his or her own understanding by assembling facts, experiences, and practices. In addition, interaction is closely linked to successful learning as interacting with others can help students clarify the concepts, improve problem-solving, and enhance retention. Furthermore, increasing students’ opportunity to talk with one another and discuss their ideas increases their ability and to argue their opinions persuasively and respectfully (Weber et. al., 2008).
This can include a variety of methods such as visual aids, charts, demonstration, a checklist with specific instructions geared towards an activity, connections to student experiences, etc. This will evolve each learners' knowledge and create a better understanding of the subject matter. Accommodating each student individually and as a whole will lead to the success of all students. Secondly, a teacher must demonstrate a positive learning environment for their students, as well as maintaining a positive attitude and enthusiasm within their teachings. (Thompson, Greer, & Greer, n.d.) stated; "Effective teachers are those who use 'meaningful
Learners look for meaning and will attempt to find consistency and order in the events of the world even in the absence of full or complete information. Some learning approaches that could harbor this interactive learning include reciprocal teaching, peer collaboration, cognitive preparation, problem-based teaching, web quests, anchored instruction and other approaches that involve learning with others. In fact, there is much pedagogy that leverages constructivist theory. Most approaches that have developed from constructivism suggest that learning is achieved best using a hands-on approach. Learners learn
This approach can be used anywhere and anytime by the learners. The outcome of rote learning cannot be lost in the same way that modern learning approaches can. Modern learning techniques can become unstable because it needs supporting teaching materials. So, this research concluded that there are advantages and disadvantages of both lecture method and rote learning and while modern age has come up in a big way. The challenges of lecture method and rote learning should be illuminating to efficiently
First, as an educator, we need to emphasized to the learners the importance of learning something in application to their current and future practice. Second, the learners move from being independent and self-directed, enhancing their ability to solve problems on their own and be independent. Third, incorporate learner’s experiences into the learning process. As people mature their amount of experiences expand and serve as a rich resource for learning. Fourth, oriented learning develop when facing real-life problems.
Learning is for use not only in school but in real life. The focal point of all pedagogical theories and methodologies is always the learner. The involvement of the learner in the process of learning is very important. It should be through active participation facilitated by the teacher either inside or outside the class room. The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
The teacher should not hesitate to use innovative teaching aids to improve one’s teaching. Learning will become effective if a socio-constructiveness approach is adopted in class. Furthermore, one way to encourage interaction among students and to motivate them is the use of class activities. One should try to come with challenging and innovation activities to motivate learners. Below we will look at the few different activities that can be adopted in a class: • Group activities – students will be more motivated to participate in class when they are in groups.
Many researches have shown that the true understanding of any knowledge takes place through the rebuilding of the information actively; by posing questions, solving problems, research, thinking and reviewing. According to Zaitoon (2000), the effective teaching is the teaching which helps the learner to gain knowledge and skills he/she needs and enables him to address problems and overcome obstacles that stand in his/her way. Students learn best by
This study does not put forward that teachers use only an inductive approach in the classroom. Language students should focus on learning grammar in context of communication situation rather than just only learning by rules and teachers need to be malleable enough to integrate various styles into their lesson depending on their particular circumstances. The advantage of teaching student is the active students to learn rather than passive
