This means even taking account their various pressures anticipated as part of the planning process, this would assist the student to gain a true reflection of study circumstance. (Allan, 2009) • Having a dedicated space to study, ensure all supplies are available ahead of time. In (Talbot , 2010, Chapter 3), this is shown to be a successful strategy as it cuts back on time wasting as well as creates a learning environment, in a distance learning setting ( • Cutting back on non-essential social activities, so that there is enough family time as well, as time set aside and applied for studying. This point is emphasized by Moore, et all when it is stated “Gaining a sense of what time you have at your disposal is a starting point for gaining more control of your life” (Moore, et al., 2010)
“Self-efficacy” is an important concept to keep in mind for students who are struggling with their literacy abilities “Research in the field of writing also shows that self-efficacy promotes motivation and learning and that modeling, goal setting, and self-evaluation exert desirable effects as well.” (Schunk, 2003, p. 6). Student’s self–efficacy play’s a huge role in their motivation and learning strategies. It is important for all students to have the confidence they need in order to participate in their studies efficiently and effectively. Student’s self-evaluations of their ability to perform in and out of the classroom is what indicates their perception of themselves as a student.
Learning can employs effective multi-modal approaches that encourage open discussion, critical feedback, shared understandings, content and representations. Learning promotes continued professional learning, confidence and positive dispositions towards numeracy, opportunities for ‘risk taking’, reflection and discussion, adaptive reasoning and the development of a ‘feedback culture’ (Glenn Finger et al., 2015).We are now equipped to fight globally for the improvement of oneself and for the teachers to apply these for learners. It has also positive effect on performance especially for students with low levels of prior knowledge; they can engage and explore new tools for learning. Although, some students are not adequately prepared for entry-level. But it sets motivation for students, to face the computer environments where they can build and explore; it also develops knowledge and
In order to move on to the next topics, the student must show complete comprehension of the material they are learning. This idea would prevent gaps in the students’ learning since there would have to be some type of evidence of the students knowledge about the objectives. Not only will Mastery-Based Learning allow students to complete their task completely one by one, but it is more individualized than the traditional model, allowing more student progression and better pacing. “An MBL environment is a more individualized approach than a traditional model. Teachers and parents see areas where students are struggling and can provide the timely feedback and support needed to address learning gaps and keep students moving forward.”
Introduction In this reflective essay I will reflect upon the course based on the assignments and projects I have accomplished this semester. Recent research (Kornblith, 2012:3) identifies that reflection is an active process and making sense of the experience through the understanding of one’s actions. As suggested by (Roberts, 2011:63) she states that the understanding of reflection have been used to develop an action stage, which can further help to improve my skills and knowledge towards my course. This is vital as it ensures that i get the most out of my learning experience and i could use them to their maximum benefit.
Metacognition is the process of thinking about thinking or being aware and understanding of one’s own thought process. As students and members of society, this still is critical to creating a high functioning world. For the individual, this provides a way to view past experiences and optimize successful ways of the past. As one continues throughout their education path, this skill is critical to creating a high function learning environment. Simply by looking at what was successful in the past, it becomes easier to develop assessments that are flexible to all learning styles.
Feedback is a significant element in determination of education quality as well as in effective learning where it portrays the learning outcomes for students and the successes for the tutors. There are many aspects that concern educationists with regards to feedback but the relationship between perspectives of learning as well as teaching and feedback stands as the most important among them. Feedback should be conveyed in different modes in a learning environment but whatever mode chosen creates room for dialogue between the tutor and students. Therefore, it is only through feedback that the student engagement relationship with the feedback as well as the tutors’ perceptions of learning, teaching and assessment that such successes can be established.
The teacher facilitates learning by responding to the needs of the learner. To be effective, the teacher or presenter needs to tell things the way it is and stress how to do it. Self-directed learners are responsible of their own learning. Knowles et al., 2005, believed that adults need to know why they need to learn and cited the six assumptions of adult learners; need to know, self-concept, experiences, readiness to learn, orientation to learning and motivation.
This can be done by assisting to remind the learner on the objectives of the lesson and how they will be able to use their new skills in the future. Then before continuing the lesson recalling prior knowledge is also important to retrieve and to build up student’s previous knowledge and skills needed before the beginning of the lesson. As a fourth step present the material or explain the lesson and combine the material to help material recall. In this step sequence is very important. After that providing guidance and feedback is the next step of Gagne’s model.
When planning for explicit strategy instruction, I always being with the end in mind, focusing on what strategy that I am hoping to have students learn and I want them to demonstrate that they know how to use it. You also need to pick a strategy to use that is going to accomplish the desired goal. One
If a student is not making adequate progress, they try other interventions or ways of implementing instruction to help students to progress. Outstanding educators are flexible and can think quickly, they are able to adjust lessons to meet the needs and address the learning styles of their students as necessary. An outstanding teacher is firm but fair when disciplining students. These educators are always aware of what is going on in their classrooms and monitor situations as needed to quickly and effectively keep things from getting out of control. Outstanding educators get to know their students, and show them respect and kindness.
Understand how to select and develop Learning Materials and Objectives Understand how adult learners and groups should use Learning Materials and how they interact with Learning Objectives Understand the importance of aligning these resources with the needs, interests and abilities. In this phase we explain why Learning Objectives are important.
The long-term behavioral goal that I wish to focus on for this assignment is to do physical exercise five-days a week. Regular physical exercise would help me maintain a healthy weight, reduce my risk of heart attack and stroke, improve my mood and well-being, and is an important factor for a long and healthy life. The first technique that I practiced was time management. I have a busy schedule which involves a constant balance of attending classes, doing homework, going to work, doing church callings, and participating in extracurricular activities.
