Promoting a Culture of Learning

Promoting a Culture of Learning | How to improve your class | Scoop.it
Learning is a culture.

It starts as a culture with the students as human beings needing to understand their environment. And it ends as a culture with students taking what we give them and using it

Via Gust MEES
Siti Noraisha Mohamed Senin's insight:

Create the culture of learning by giving room for students to apply what they have learnt without the fear of failing. Even when they do fail, instill in them the motivation to rise up once again.

Just-in-Time Teaching: An Interactive Engagement Pedagogy

Just-in-Time Teaching: An Interactive Engagement Pedagogy | How to improve your class | Scoop.it

Suppose you are teaching an introductory biology course and your next lesson deals with genetics. You would like to prepare your students for the upcoming class by asking them to think about the topic...

 

 

The instructor is now ready to adjust the classroom activities or lesson flow, and improvise if necessary. The flow is pretty much predetermined, but the words used in class will arise from the student responses and, most importantly, will be influenced by the feedback from the live class.

 

Typically, the live class is shown a representative set of responses, and the authors of the responses are invited to comment and elaborate. The rest of the class is encouraged to challenge and suggest alternatives. Properly handled, this can be a teaching opportunity that goes beyond the course content.

 

Students have an opportunity to practice critical thinking and communication skills. The course content is enriched because the wording actually comes from the live class, which makes the lesson fresh and interesting to the students.

I like the way the JiT is presented and arguments listed, I especially appreciate the guidelines to justifying such approach.

this method requires instructor time up front to read and evaluate student prior knowledge and understanding, but you'll get it back in less reteaching as you tailor instruction to an appropriate level, Engagement may be higher and improved outcomes

The Key To Great Feedback? Praise the Process, Not the Person

The Key To Great Feedback? Praise the Process, Not the Person | How to improve your class | Scoop.it

Even with the best intentions, feedback can easily backfire. The praise you give doesn’t lead to greater confidence. Your expert advice seems to take the wind right out of his sails. You decide to “go easy” on her, only to find her growing more anxious by the minute. And you are far from alone if you’ve had a hard time figuring out why.

 

Fortunately, scientific studies of motivation have identified clear, principled reasons why some types of feedback work, and others don’t. It is neither mysterious nor random. If you’ve gotten it wrong in the past (and who hasn’t?), then you can do a better job giving feedback from now on by sticking to a few simple rules.


Via Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor
Siti Noraisha Mohamed Senin's insight:

Providing feedback to students could help them realise their strengths and faults. All praise and no constructive feedback might backfire on the learning progress of the students as they do not know what exactly went well or otherwise.

32 Characteristics Of High-Performing Classrooms

 

Instructional design is the strategic creation of learning experiences through intentional planning, sequencing, and data-based revision of learning.

 

This process includes both the ways content is accessed, and the learning needs and objectives (and how they are determined) themselves.

 

This puts instructional strategies, literacy strategies, curriculum mapping, standards unpacking, assessment design, digital literacy, and a dozen other facets of education beneath its umbrella.
