This is so true! Our preconceived ideas can have such an impact on the children.  We need to be very careful, that we remain positive and try to be unbiased in the classroom.

This has always been the case, but it particularly pertinent to how studets will use technology as well. This will line up to your expectations - if you expect them to mess around with their iPads - they will. If you expect they will be engaged in learning and model this - they will.

It is a truism but teachers behaviours are infuenced by their expectations of students

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.

OK generally, some of them can be combined, and some have dependencies on school environment and broader policy beyond an individual classroom...

5 Assessment Strategies Every Teacher Should Know

 

Most teachers and current textbooks offer varied approaches to the material to be learned so the teaching can be brain-compatible with the varied student learning styles. It is only logical that respect for these individual learning styles be incorporated into assessment forms.

Option 1: Open-Book & Take-Home Tests

 

Option 2: Student-Made Tests

 

How My Students Create And Study For Their Own Exams

This is the process I use for student-created math final exams in my classroom. Your process may differ depending on grade level, content area, or other local concerns.

I give the structure for the tests students are required to create such as, “Include 15 calculations and 5 word problems with 2 from each of the 10 subsections of the chapter”I make a copy of each test and change the numbers, but not the structure of the equations. They knew I would do this and that the numbers will be different than the ones they usedStudents are assigned homework to make practice tests on their own, using the template of the test they created and changing the numbers themselvesIn class, for further review, students exchange their practice tests with partners for study and to the confirm accuracy of their answers (as I don’t have an answer key to all of their self-created tests)

It is interesting we thought we had to have stages of personal learning environments?

Nichelle Plivelic's comment, March 6, 2014 7:57 AM
There are three main stages to personalized learning, which involves the teacher figuring out how each student learns individually and establishing goals for the students. A teacher can change the physical layout if this helps(when working with children who are easily distracted, such as those with ADHD or autism, it's best to get rid of as many distractions as possible). The student will learn at their own pace in whatever way is the most effective.
