Discuss the Struggles

Schools are a place for children which is filled with struggles, challenges, and difficult times, you need to discuss and foresee the various struggles happening for the children.

Show your strength in knowledge

You may be the first to get in the students minds in case of seeking of help. The chance to collaborate better with the students can be the lunch hours as most of the teachers who are inclined to the collaborate with students generally welcome students to join the lunch. More topics gets opened during those times and there will be a better doubt clarifying session.

Connect students to the right guidance

Not in all cases would you as a teacher or mentor will be able to support the students to clarify their requirements and serve their queries. You would need to be able to direct them to the right person for the right guidance. It would also be ideal if you could accompany them to the other person and provide a personal introduction and help start the conversation. This will comfort the student even in an uncomforted scenario.

Guide them to solve their own problems

At most times, we quickly figure out the problems of the students and just try to give a quick support but the professionals quote this is not the right approach and the wiser approach will be to enable the students to arrive at their own solutions always. We much be a driving source to formulate their thinking capacity and show them options it can be handled. It should be deliberated on the students themselves to handle the issue and come to solving them.

For those associated with the right teacher or the mentor proves to be fortunate and will be successful in all their endeavours.

3 ways to shift the level of engagement of students in classroom!

ppe-blog-student-engagement

If you want to shift the level of engagement at the classroom for your students, then you are one among the forward thinkers who wish to contribute more to the young learners. On a general mind-storming session with a group of experienced teachers the question of level of engagement meter and cultivating your engagement meter showed much enthusiasm and unified response.

The educators, mentors are so clear that they heartily agree over the high-energy levels when students get deeply engage in the concepts and that they show much shift in the energy levels. The immense joy being experienced and this overwhelmed feel turns out to be an achievement.

The innovative means of engaging students and the mind-set of the new generation are developed based on the level of engagement experienced by them in everyday classroom. So, the teachers employ better care to create an emotionally safe environment for all the students to come forward without the fear of humiliation. In more ways, the student’s engagement can be developed with a shift in thinking.

  • Provide blog writing skills in students where their ideas get to display.
  • Not just assess the answer whether correct or wrong, instead go for creating an explanation.
  • Bring in the students the self-awareness about the concepts and understanding.
  • Grab the attention of students with some questionnaire.
  • Teach the z-platform of thinking levels in each of the concepts and relate them to the practical applications.

As we realize the importance of the shift in the level of engagement in students let us quickly plan the approach to bring in a wide change in the real thinking of the students. For each of the subject by its nature the teacher deliberates interesting activity for the child. Some times for the literature a learning studio is been created which is an imaginative learning group which targets on happy and systematic learning.

The students are readily seen acceptable to the concept and they get organized in the perfect mix. For subjects like the Science and Social one may think of the Fishbowl concept which a group of students are made to sit in the middle and a group on the outer circle who would face the middle students. The students in the middle will need to come up with the concept from lessons, a need for problem solving and the group outside will be required to participate bringing the solutions.

For some higher standard students, can think of something innovative and create an environment to help them work on the practical projects and bring in to innovate real time working models or gadgets. Thinks of something like the Google Room which has lots of colours, free space to collaborate and unleash their ideas to the fullest.

Ways to shift the level of Engagement in Students:

ppe-blog-student-engagement2

Since it carries to be done with lots of encouragements the students level of understanding and matching up with the new generation mind-set makes the most of every bit of engagement. The faculty need to choose the level of engagement which is been expected in the student for learning the subject and plan the motivation level to extract the right level of engagement in students.

Acknowledge the Talents in the Students

Well, this is the primary key to bring the benefits of student engagement. It should always be encouraged for the students to exhibit their talent and talent when given a platform for creativity it rocks and does wonders.

“Doing easily what others find it difficult is TALENT; Doing what is impossible with talent is GENIUS.”

In most scenario, the children seem to outsmart the teachers when it is related to the use of technology and in most cases students when given a supporting motivation they can do wonders. The teachers would need to give an appreciation to the student and when acknowledged the student to discuss more and exhibit more on the given subject they would get more creative and would excel in the same.

Provide Students an Opportunity

When one or few students are the early bird finishers of some complex assignment then here should be an opportunity provided to recognize their talents. The faculty should extend a welcome and allow them to help those who require support or find the concept difficult to handle. A perfect teacher encourages and ignites the spirit of teaching in student to help their peer groups.

The learning gets better and each time the opportunity is extended the relationship of the students gets improved and they bring better chance to help their classmates the best way. The teacher is also admired for the opportunity and the motivation provided.

Provide Students the required Comfort Level

This is recently experienced where in the teachers get struck over the smart classrooms or when they are demonstrating some app. Instead of deviating or putting a full stop over it when something goes wrong, instead provide the student a chance to explore and meet the solution. This encouragement when comes with freedom and permissions the young minds are seen to work multi-fold and they will soon discover and teach how things work.

Amazing results are experienced when such innovative trends are practiced in every day classrooms and of all stages of education.

 

Should the Class Ranking System be Retained?

class-ranking-system

Let us now forget whether we are towards the conventional or the contemporary methods. Schools comprehend the intent to provide the best for the students in terms of education and life skills. The primary exposure to students away from their family is obtained from the exposure received at the schools.

Schools does take unsurpassed care for the students to enhance their subject talent and predicts the level of concentration that is been required for each of the student to mark an excellence. In this stream of procedures and rather the multi-talented children are also prepared to the realities of facing the situations.

All the hard work and the learning is measured in terms of assessments. There are few other benchmarks of assessing the progress of the child and their noteworthy contribution is taken up for recognition.

Now I would like to break the ice to say that most schools are prepared to eliminate the class ranking system as they may demotivate the child. Although many concepts are emerging over the next generation standards, we may tend to think it is best to avoid the question in the title, but let’s consider an example over the how the next generation standards are with the subject Science.

The next generation standards:

Contemplate on the subject Science and the futuristic divisions will be based on Physical Science, Life Science, Space Science and Engineering Science. The interesting way which gets practiced over the learning and meeting the requirements will be to ask questions and define problems, develop models and show the applications, plan and analyse, indulge in computational thinking, design solutions, stand by the evidence and prove over the concepts.

Anyone would agree this is the right way of learning which is far more improvised than the traditional methods. So, this being the scenario added crosscutting concepts to support better learning emerges each time.

Competition Encouragement:

The assessment tools are amply and much rubrics methodology gets applied for the performance augmentation in students. Most assessment are done to understand the performance of the students rather their subject understanding and their intrusive clarifications over the concepts.

Such assessments are most essential and they are practiced way back of initial Gurukul method of education. So, now is the time when you see the difference of opinion in educators and how much of value been thought of in each of the process.

Reduce Student Stress with No Assessment:

It was intended as a good practice to avoid the assessment to students of young age as it reduces the stress built in them. When treated at par and all the desperate measures to improve the education and the child performance are welcomed but for the class ranking system. Keeps the child cheerful and allowing them to learn in their own pace will help in better education are the thought behind many reformers. These agitators are the reason behind the policies which get established.

The Sooner Taught the Better will be Managed:

Here comes the differential opinion of the activist over the class ranking system being functional. This is strongly recommended despite the arguments of stress-free learning as when students enter the competitive world where they cannot deny any form of assessment or evaluation they will fail to manage. We need to prepare students for such realities and they should have the self-esteem to keep their performance high.

The sooner they access the fact of being in competition the better will be their live-in future. The students who do not excel in certain subjects might get chance to prove in other fields, so it is not that once lacking behind must be depressed. It is a challenge taught to the students to fight the competition and come to the forefront. This is a great life skill which needs to be exposed rather taught to the child.

Over all, a great many ideas and thought provoking arguments although sets the things right, it is strongly believed and recommended that the class ranking system deserves retention for the simple and straight forward reason being the life skill learnt.

This system will provide the best education and they will be provided an opportunity to keep them progressing with advance tutoring system.

A Shift in the role of Teachers

Teachers as we know would penetrate the minds of their students with the concepts but also deny the challenge to make him understand in the sharp way. As the introduction of the intelligent systems to the education which allowed the teachers to quickly handle the classes What happens to this shift as tutors will be only guide the students who have some setbacks.
