Nonetheless, students should identify which few methods enhance their memory and understanding best when learning, as different students have different learning needs. Likewise, students, who are usually required to recall learning materials, are recommended to view future new materials with strong enthusiasm and determination (Shuilleabhain, 2014), as it is an approach to motivate students. However, students should take care not to practice learning techniques they are not familiar with, especially when nearing the exams; as students who, Lan (cited in Bednall and Kehoe, 2011, pp. 205-226) believes, “engage in unfamiliar strategies may induce a high working memory load, thereby diminishing the effectiveness of their study efforts.” Also, both teachers and parents alike should take the practical and relevant steps in ensuring that their students/children are well schooled in the manner of implementing effective learning techniques in their academic life. Additionally, students should understand that no matter how effective a learning technique is, it does not guarantee their success in exams or in the long term.
In addition, the students do not show any resentment towards PBL learning. This implies that the students prefer PBL approach compare to traditional teaching strategy. However, there were few concern and doubts in the study such as the different experiences and backgrounds of students. Therefore more researches on PBL learning need to be conducted to further research. Nevertheless, this research was considered to be useful and fruitful for the researcher as the researcher is a pre-service teacher.
According to Lam’s study (2009), ‘trying to remember a list of individual, unrelated uses is hardly conductive to increasing learners’. This motivates ESL teachers to figure out a more effective teaching method in helping learners use prepositions properly. b. The collocation approach This approach could be considered as an innovative method of teaching and learning prepositions since prepositions are remembered in chunks, formulaic sequence or word co-occurrence. To illustrate this concept, a student will try to remember such phrases like depend on, look down on, or blame
In such situation, learning is like a “trial and error” and may result in a waste of time for some. Thus, many facilitators feel that there should be a mixed of lectures and PBL lessons for the students in order for the students achieve the learning objectives, instead of just having the entire module made of 15 “one-day-one problem”
It is also felt to carry on dissecting what works and what does not work in the FL classroom, to keep on designing more teaching activities that focus on raising learners’ awareness of pragmatics, and more tasks which target the grammatical and pragmatic features that are important for learners’ communicative competence. Intervention studies for comparing adult and teenagers for their competency development in conversation are recommended in future. Furthermore, larger data collection than this, and a thorough and an extensive period of instruction may yield very different results. Teaching methods, motivational prompts, materials used or type of activities carried out could also make a
A teacher must identify students with low self – efficacy and mentor them in the right direction. Because until we do so, these children will not enjoy their learning experiences. Children will not initiate tasks unless they are motivated and confident that they have caused the outcomes. As children look for peer models, peer – learning should be emphasized. The study also recommends that teachers and adults around the child do not make judgements on their performances.
In order to achieve a predetermined learning, teachers need to be smart in implementing the PDP in the classroom. The teachers have to design a variety of teaching and learning activities based on cultural differences of students. For example, teachers can merge students from various ethnic groups for group activities and this action can encourage the sharing of ideas and opinions as well as to recognize each other 's culture more closely. By implementing these strategies, teachers can encourage students to respect ethnic and cultural partners other better. Furthermore, teachers should be fair in treating pupils in classrooms without practicing discrimination or bias despite differences in ethnicity and descent students.
The school where I did my observation has a strong philosophy regarding how best students learn; it states that the teachers will encourage students to develop a critical thinking skill towards learning, so they can acquire knowledge that will help them perform at their best. The school also believed that teachers should allow students to become responsible in the learning process and this is done by allowing students to work Cooperatively. Students learn in different ways and therefore teachers should use creative methods when imparting knowledge using cooperative learning strategies (Hammond, 1996). Students were placed in groups at all times to accomplish the tasks that are given in class, this has helped the students to participate and do well in group presentations. In that it has promote a positive interdependence where each group member depends on each other to accomplish a shared goal or task.
There is a way for colleges deliver a education worth all the money that students spend. Teachers can start adapting what is called the problem-posing approach to education. This approach focuses on promoting authentic thinking. Which means using certain teaching methods to aid in teaching on a more advanced level. Freire, Edmundson, and Lombardi discuss this method in their individual works.
Praising their efforts technique is found in most of the lessons while assigning tasks/roles to students and attention seeking techniques are the least used method. It is noticed in the pie chart that different teachers like to use different methods to motivate students as very few methods have been commonly used by most of the teachers. However praising students for their efforts is found to be a popular method among the
