(Ritualo, 2000). This work would serve educators, particularly in assessing students, Supervisors and Curriculum Planners to find understanding the outcome of assessment (traditional and authentic) on science appreciative and learning conclusions of scholars. Classroom assessment practices are based on teacher beliefs, training, knowledge and skills in educational assessment. Understanding teachers’ classroom assessment practices remains pivotal for informed educational decisions that can be made about students’ learning outcomes.
The knowledge of a teacher should beyond than to the knowledge of a student to make her/his activity effective. “Metacognition enhances and enriches the learning experiences (St.Clair.n.d).It will enhance their capabilities in teaching performance by using metacognition. It would help to the teacher improve their teaching performance and used a different strategies to make the lesson effective. They should know the new implemented lesson log to make it effective in the classroom setting. “Applying metcognitive strategies such as self-awareness and self monitoring is to develop independent learners who can control their own learning and learn how to learn for life” (Papaleontion – Louca, 2008).
1.The purpose of this research is to investigate whether using technology in the classroom can help students to learn more, effectively and with more depth and whether the teacher can support students more productively therefore enhancing children’s self–esteem and interest whilst increasing results. 2. By linking the more traditional teaching theories and ideologies with the latest computer technology can teachers help students access to learning materials and allow them to work more independently. By using technology, can the appropriate amount of teacher, peer and student feedback be given and will it help make students take more control of their learning? By connecting the both old and new approaches, reaching out to children and engaging them by use of an interactive, digital world from within the classroom, it is possible that good teaching practice can be
According to Tracy Huber (2008, 1) “A teacher’s most essential job is to help students gain and retain knowledge —to take true ownership of what they have learned.” Through this quote we can interpret that learners need support such as concrete manipulatives to perform the necessary task in order to grasp the concepts. However concrete manipulatives have an important part to play in a learners schooling life especially towards maths. In my essay below I will explain the conceptual and procedural knowledge, the history of manipulatives, my understanding of concrete manipulatives, ways in which manipulatives can support students, how manipulatives help students gain conceptual knowledge and how a grade 3 teacher can teach Cuisenaire rods in equivalent
In today’s classrooms, there is a slow shift occurring that focuses more on learning through technology. As new technologies are invented and introduced to help students learn, current learning theories, pedagogy and digigogy will need to change in order to meet the needs of students. Teachers also need to make sure they keep up-to-date on modern day technologies so that their student’s can have every opportunity to learn
Research has shown that teachers’ adoption and acceptance of technology in class is largely influenced by their attitudes (Huang &Liaw, 2005). Buabeng-Andoh (2012) emphasized that the ways in which teachers adopt and integrate computers into their teaching influence the use of CALL .On the school level, factors such as training, availability of facilities and principal support influence computer use. Gray (2001) believes that school administrators have a pivotal role in successful incorporation of technology in teachers’ classrooms. On the system level, education system, curricula, class hours and textbooks affect teachers’ use of
Our experiences in the classroom advise us about the ways the principles of self-regulated learning can benefit focus on educating and learning. In the following section we start by examining the early state of self-regulating inside the classroom. Then, based on our testing, we explain how reasoning models rooted in rich mathematical activity, composed with reflection across taking notes, opened up chances for learners to observe and examine their own mathematical learning and find the solutions to the assigned problems or tasks. Case Study
This way they would develop a liking for Science. - The usage of technology is becoming more common in schools and any teacher who incorporates technology into any lesson will make that lesson memorable. This way pupils will gather and analyze data more efficiently and effectively. - One of the major goals a teacher should have is to help pupil develop skills and attributes in a Science class.
In this school/district, staff development learning methods mirror, as closely as possible, the methods teachers are expected to use with their students. According to the apparent practices of administration, there are two areas that Canby Lane Elementary School excels in Professional Development opportunities that greatly impact student achievement and align with the Standards of Professional Learning: 1. According to Learning Forward (2015), professional learning produces changes in educator practice and student learning when it sustains implementation support over time. Canby Lane administration ensures that support is given over time by utilizing weekly grade level and faculty meetings to provide PD opportunities for professional growth. During these meetings, teachers perform various tasks such as analyze student performance on district, school- wide and grade level tasks as well as conduct vertical team meetings to determine trends in performance among ascending and descending grade levels.
With that being said, Common core developers have outlined the approach to assessing. To avoid layering on top of other assessments already being used, teachers and administrators will need to examine their assessment approaches so that testing continues to add to, rather than take away from teaching young children. To direct teachers in this approach, they would need to become familiar with the guidelines provided in the Common Core Standards. Next, in reference to assessment results being used for high-stakes such as grade retention, Common Core
The intelligent use of technology could transform and improve almost every aspect of school, modernizing the nature of curriculum, student assignments, parental connections, and administration. Online curricula now include lesson plans, simulations, and demonstrations for classroom use and review. With online connections, students can share their work and communicate more productively and creatively. Teachers can maintain records and assessments using software tools and stay in close touch with students and families via email and voicemail. Schools can reduce administrative costs by using technology tools, as other fields have done, and provide more funds for the
