Create a successful classroom climate.

Create a successful classroom climate. | Education | Scoop.it
Creating a positive classroom climate and a supportive environment will help your students become successful learners.
Jacqueline Lledo's insight:

Classroom climate is a major contributor in the context for successful learning.  One part of the classroom climate is the physical appearance of the room.  This is up to the teacher to create a classroom that engages active learning.  Students need a classroom that is inviting and positive.  In this article it explains that if a teacher has a good classroom climate that there is evidence to show that students learn more effectively and their achievements do increase because they are responding to their environment better.  As a future teacher I think a key aspect I took from this article was to build strong relationships in the classroom.  This does not just mean a teacher student relationship.  This is also talking about a student to student relationship. This way students can support one another and can build on one another. The article continues on to explain other tips and strategies to improve and build classroom climate.

Education World: Lost in Space? Get Organized Quickly

Education World: Lost in Space? Get Organized Quickly | Education | Scoop.it
Maximize even the most limited of classroom layouts.
Jacqueline Lledo's insight:

This website helps teachers organize their classroom space.  In the article it identifies that some teachers have too much space in their classroom and some teachers feel that they have too little space to make instruction effective.  There is no one-way to organize a classroom.  You need to know your students and know that you can always change your classroom organization if your original setup isn’t working.  Also, organization doesn’t just stop at how you arrange the desk.  Classroom organization is important in all aspects of the room.  From the desks, to “outer space” or the walls and shelves, to the teachers spaces, and so on.

12 Ways to Know if You're in a Project-Based Learning Environment or Merely Having Kids Create Projects in Your Classroom

12 Ways to Know if You're in a Project-Based Learning Environment or Merely Having Kids Create Projects in Your Classroom | Education | Scoop.it
I often talk with educators (and parents and administrators) who are convinced that their students are working within Project Based Learning environments. They tell me about the wonderful projects ...
Jacqueline Lledo's insight:

Project-Based Learning or just a project? Time and time again I come across projects that I find extremely interesting.  They are usually hands on, students are working in groups and multiple academic disciplines are used; however, I'm not sure if they are considered PBL or just a simple project.  On this site the author goes step by step explaining the differences from PBL and projects.  She shows similarities and differences in the two.  She also helps to explain what all is entailed when created a PBL. I'll definitely be using this site again to help me decipher the differences between projects.

Global Competency 2010

This is a presentation about global and linguistic competence skills and strategies.

...


Via Ana Cristina Pratas
Jacqueline Lledo's insight:

I really love this slideshow of pictures and phrases relating to global competency. The PowerPoint makes very strong and powerful statements throughout it.  “Learn with the world… not just about the world”.  I really loved this quote on the first page.  As a teacher you should be helping your students to become globally competent and reaching outside the box.  Students don’t need to be just taught about different people, cultures, ethnicities, religions, etc. from a textbook.  But instead, the teachers can “inspire the students to explore beyond their nation” and “open global gateways” so that they can gain tools and skills to help contribute to the world.  These images and messages are also great posters to print our and put into a classroom one day!!

This was a really cool find- the thing that caught my attention was the quote at the beginning about learning with the world, not just about it.  This doesn't only mean learning about the holidays and foods that are within a particular culture (the presentation calls these shallow features). It means more so to learn about the values, attitudes, and beliefs of the people. Students should know about the history of a culture and how it came to be.  This is something that all students in our time should know about. The world is forever changing, and teachers and students alike have to be able to keep up with it.

Jacqueline Lledo's insight:

I just came across this website and found it really useful! iEarn has an amazing collections of projects for different grades, languages and subjects.  As I looked deeper into the website I found so many great classroom projects that were #PBL and encouraging global competency, which is great! On their main page for the iEarn Project Space they had a quote saying, "How will this project improve the quality of life on the planet".  They strive to make sure their projects are answering questions like this one.  I definitely plan to use this site to help me facilitate different projects for my classroom. :)

Jacqueline Lledo's insight:

It is one thing to teach the students to be globally competent and what that means.  But it is even more important to take action.  These students are exploring different cultures and world religions and taking it a step forward to create projects out of their findings.  In the end they will present their findings.

Each class picks a topic to study and then plans a field placement to research and then present their findings. This video is a good example of project based learning in the classroom! They pick the topic they are interested in and then research and learn more information about it. Power Point and thinking maps are great tools to represent learning! Project based learning has improved test scores as well as behavior. It is the way to go! 

Hannah Klein's curator insight, February 19, 2014 2:35 PM

This video is a great example of the developing a project idea in the classroom!

Research: How SEL Classroom Management Techniques Build Academic Achievement

Research: How SEL Classroom Management Techniques Build Academic Achievement | Education | Scoop.it
Respect, responsibility, and a community-based learning atmosphere promote success at Mount Desert Elementary School, a K-8 public school in Northeast Harbor, Maine.
Jacqueline Lledo's insight:

Studying all the time isn’t the only way to be successful in school and shouldn’t be the only thing teachers are pushing for students to do.  School success starts from the teachers teaching approaches.  In the article it explains that school’s success are contributed from a responsive classroom, tailoring instruction to student’s learning needs and interests, and having a community-based learning atmosphere.  Having a responsive classroom is being able to help students build positive relationships, manage their behaviors, and have students take active roles in their own learning; just like in PBL.  So, as students learn and gain knowledge about important topics teachers should also be providing an atmosphere that is most effective for tailoring that kind of learning.  The student not only gain a strong academic education, “but also the self-confidence, emotional maturity, and social skills needed to succeed beyond the walls of the classroom.”

50 Ideas For Using Skype in Your Classroom

Via Maryalice Leister
Jacqueline Lledo's insight:

In the 21st century the classroom is progressing quickly.  Technology is very important and helpful in the classroom.  This article helps to give collaborate ideas on how Skype can be used in the classroom.  One awesome idea is to meet with other classrooms around the world on Skype.  This can also be a great resource when having PBL in the classroom.  Another tool Skype allows a classroom to use is having interviews with experts that they may not have the chance to do without Skype.  This again helps promote and support PBL.

A positive atmosphere can make a classroom a more pleasant place to be and, in turn, a more effective, motivating place to learn. It's simple to do, and it can have positive results on the achievement of students. Change how you interact...
Jacqueline Lledo's insight:

It is so important to have positive energy in the classroom so that students can be at their full potential to learn.  To do this teachers need to create that positive atmosphere.  On this website it list 10 steps in order to create a positive atmosphere.  I feel that these are all very important things to do in a classroom and aren't difficult to accomplish.  When I have my own classroom I plan to try and incorporate all the different steps listed.  One very simple step in create positive energy in the classroom is greeting the class, coming to school with a smile, and having a personal welcome to your students.  This is difficult to accomplish and in doing so you put yourself in a better mood for the day.

There are several helpful tips in this Wikihow about creating a postive classroom space. Classroom spaces should positive and welcoming to students to make them feel safe. Positive messages should be displayed on walls to maintain the positive atmosphere. Additionally, interaction with our students should be positive to provide encouragement to our students. All these suggestions will help to create a more peaceful atmosphere for the classroom so that students are able to fully engage in learning.

Jacqueline Lledo's insight:

I’ve been learning about common core for a while now and have heard so many pros and cons about the new system.  However, I never really dug deep to see how the common core works or gain my own opinion on the system.  In this video it starts by showing a kindergarten class doing a word problem as a class.  Eventually the students individually create tables and figure out the word problem and discuss their answers with their teacher.  I really like the concepts they showed in this video, how common core allows upper level students to advance while students not at that pace get still learn but slower.  All in all, this is a great video to watch to better understand the purposes of common core, ways to implement it into your own classroom and to not be scared of it!

Jacqueline Lledo's insight:
I remember growing up memorizing details all night for a test. I would take the test, usually pass with a good grade, than forget all of the facts I memorized. School can be very boring for some kids, but it doesn’t have to be. In this video it explains why #PBL is so important and how effective it is in the classroom. When students get to learn meaningful things and actually enjoy how they are learning it, they have a better chance of remembering it in the long run. Just like when I was elementary school, I still can remember specific projects that I found interesting and meaningful. These were usually the drawn out projects that we were able to find research and then able to present our findings in our own ways. If you wondering why project based learning is important in the classroom than you should definitely check out this video!

This is a really informative website that explains to readers what project based learning is. It reiterates the concepts that we have gone over thus far in EDCI397 in a simple and easy way. I especially like that there are separate pages to browse through on the right side of the page. The link, "Why PBL?" struck me. It explains that now, more than ever, students find school to be boring and pointless. We have to change this! Students are the future and we have to make sure that they play an active and engaging role in their worlds. These are definitely concepts that I will implement in my classroom.
