In sports, it will improve our teams and can intimidate other teams if we get a giant win record. In academics, it will allow our students to learn more in school and be prepared for the future. On the whole, I believe competition is good in school because it allows children to work together as a team, it helps children stay active, and it makes kids strive to be better. I strongly believe that we can keep competition in the school system. However, I can not control what decisions adults make.
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
2. The strength of these philosophies lies in the fact they are all student centered approaches to teaching and learning. I most appreciate the prescriptive nature of the philosophies meaning that they all are attempting to increase learning and decrease behavior issues by establishing roles, routines, and norms of a classroom. I think if I can actively utilize the approaches above, I can create the type of environment that is helpful to both students and still be a place I want to work in. I do not expect that I can do it all the first year, but maybe over time I can bring in more research based applications of classroom management.
- Teachers should create interesting, dramatic and jaw dropping introductions to lesson so as to capture and maintain their pupils interest. 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.
It can help people know where they stand to in comparison to other students in their class. Class rank can also give students a gentle introduction to real world competition that prepares them to succeed in life. Also, class rank might inspire some students to work harder and improve their grades so that they can compete with other students. Class rank motivates students to try as hard as they can and can be satisfying in the end. Rank promotes healthy competition between students and introduces them to real world competition that they will face in the job market.
One example would be to add in a lesson that involves discussing a relevant topic with a partner or a group of people. This activity would allow students to think of the information in a new way that might help to reinforce the information. Another example would be to add a lesson that would involve the students creating a skit based on a topic that is covered in the course. Using these as well as other engaging and interactive lessons, Ditto could increase the amount that the students actively participate in the class. He would also be helping to increase the amount of information that the students retain, since the article by Elizabeth English says that one of the best ways to learn is by doing
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
Giving Praise to Encourage Students’ Motivation is Fundamental Introduction In recent decades, one of the problems faced by students is how to build up their motivation. Encouraging students’ motivation is essential to increase their performance and involvement in classroom activities. Academic performance, inappropriate behaviour and unproductive classrooms are all related to motivation issues. Motivation is needed to promote students’ interest and attitude in order to help them realize their potential and improve their desire to study hard. To deal with this problem, praise is examined as a useful instrument to encourage students’ spirit when it is implemented appropriately in a classroom.
Teaching student’s comprehension while their schemas are expanding is a great idea. While teaching students how to read fluently, teach them how to make connections, visualize, ask question, and how to make inferences. If this is taught to children as they learn how too fluently it will expand their “how to read” schema. The idea of how schema could help comprehension that the article provided could lead to many discoveries. Teaching comprehension at this age and getting students to actively ask questions and make inferences will help them excel in future classes.
I believe that the important goal in teaching is to encourage and promote learning. My task as a teacher is to inspire a child to become self-motivated and then reach beyond their own expectation and beyond my expectation as a teacher. I am very committed in providing a learning environment that is both exciting and thorough, one that empowers both student and me in pursuing learning. As a teacher I will provide and promote positive learning and a strong foundation for a lifelong learner. I believe that learning
