Education should not just be about our academics or else we will never get anywhere. It should also be about how to prepare yourself for real-world problems. In school, the teachers are focused more on our academics than our life problems. Although the school does teach us some of the basic life skills that we need, they do not teach us the most important ones that revolve around our lives every single day. “Though high school and college are excellent in
Throughout this course we learnt and discussed many different philosophies, theories and concepts that we as teacher may use in our classrooms. As a teacher, children depend on us to help them succeed in their learning environment. Teacher’s will not all choose to all teach from the same philosophy or theory approach; whatever we decide to use within the classroom, the main focus should be on the child’s abilities to learn. Children all learn in their own time and in their own way. It is up to the teacher to maximize each child’s individual potential.
I think that technology will definitely take a big part in education in the future. It is a clever machine that could not only help teach effectively, but also efficiently.

According to Jerome Bruner “children should not be provided material in its final form but require to organise it for themselves” (Potter, 2007, p.9). The benefit of an enthusiastic teacher is that children instantly become interested in the lesson, therefore, support material is not required as communicating between is much easier when passionate about a subject. When teachers speak to pupils with high levels of enthusiasm and good humour they find the tone of the classroom is more encouraging which foster and support children’s self-confidence (Kyriacou, 2001, p.4) Children without any desire to take part or communicate with a teacher will result in the idea of discovery learning being unsuccessful as the children will solely depend on the teacher providing the answer. During my recent school placement I observed children working in groups with a teacher in order to solve a mathematical problem. The group were communicating ideas effectively and I believe this observation was clearly a result of how passionate the teacher was about the pupil’s questions and how well the teacher engaged with the learning taking place.
Phones can interrupt learning and distract, not only themselves, but others around them. Students get inattentive easily when their phone is on, or even off. With the presence of a phone, people tend to wonder what those outside of class are doing. Many students receive plenty of notifications from family and friends and they can get eager to look at it. Social media is also impacting our minds.
On the subject of why using phones in class could have a bad affect on how some students learn, even though some students benefit from using them like listening to music to help them focus. All though somes parents do think that phones affect their kids learning they might be right. Kids use their phones for many different
