Just-in-Time Teaching: An Interactive Engagement Pedagogy

Just-in-Time Teaching: An Interactive Engagement Pedagogy | pre-service teacher ideas | 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.

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

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

A computing revolution in schools | Coding | Europe | UK

A computing revolution in schools | Coding | Europe | UK | pre-service teacher ideas | Scoop.it

This is the week when a revolution begins to sweep through schools in England. It involves a whole new way of teaching children about computing - but I suspect many parents, and even some teachers, know very little about this important moment in education.

 

As children from five upwards return to school, they are going to have to start learning how to program - or to "code" to use the trendy term which seems to upset some old-school programmers. This is the result of the new national curriculum for computing that is being introduced in England this term.

tom jackson's insight:

The concept of coding is very foreign to me, but the idea of analyzing, understanding, and creating is not.  Maybe that's where we are going with "coding" in education? At any rate, it's a thought to consider, what are you going to do if, in the near future, your administrator asks, "what are your students coding today?"
