Hi you guys, for this entry I would like to reflect on my journey for A03 by listing out 7 possible items which will ensure an effective student-centred, personalised, higher-order-thinking lesson.
and there goes the 7 items:
1.Students’ prior knowledge.
Teacher should really know the students’ prerequisite knowledge before they can design a good lesson plan. It is because, by knowing their prior knowledge, it will be easier for the teacher to design any activities for the students. The teacher can recall the students’ prior knowledge and relate it with the current lesson that he will teach the them on that day. This will help them in understanding the new input and this can be some sort of motivation to the students since they usually will be curious to know more about the particular input related to their knowledge.
2. Let the students do their work in their own way.
By doing this, students will have the chances and opportunity to explore their talent and skills. Some teacher might be strict and ask the students to follow his/her ways of doing work in class and this will somehow limit their learning development since different students will have different ways and skills to develop themselves. Besides , they will have the opportunity to move on to the next stage without waiting for the other students . This will ensure the effectiveness of personalized learning since this is also one of the criteria in implementing personalized learning in class.
3. Include group work activities in most of the lesson.
Group work activities is one of effective ways in promoting students centered and personalized learning. This is because, group work will allow the students to socialize and works with other people in class. Through this, they will be able to help each other and improve themselves with the help of other members. Furthermore, working in a group will enhance the students confidence since they will usually feel stronger and and when working in group.
4. Designing lesson that can develop their intellectual dimension.
For the lesson, we will make sure that the activities planned for the students within the lesson can trigger their mind and also challenges their creative and critical thinking. By involving and participating with these kind of activities, students will be able to activate their knowledge in mind and making them active learners. This will promote a higher order thinking skills as they will use their minds and thoughts to solve the problems given in questions or activities prepares for them.
5. The use of ICT.
We had used ICT tools in most of lesson designed inthis Assignement 3 . Even for the school that not provided with LCD projector or computer lab, we still use ICT as one of the tools that helping us in designing the lesson. We will at least use ICT to make or design task sheet for the students and we will print and make copies for the students. Most of the ICT tools used in this assignment are based on the list of tools given by the lecturer. Those list are very useful for us since it helps us in making the lesson interesting and attractive.
6. Include assessment and feedbacks of the lesson.
These two elements are important in a lesson and it should be neglected during the teaching and learning session. Assessment and feedbacks will help both students and teachers in identifying their mistakes and development during the lesson. Teacher will be able to trace whether can understand the input taught to them. From this, teacher will which part of the lesson should be emphasized to the students.
7. Deliver instruction through multiple forms of media
We had used multiple forms of media for the lesson plan. For eg: LCD projector, cd players, laptops, computers and many more. All of these media forms will help us in making the lesson interesting and attractive to the students. This surely promote the personalized learning since deliver instruction through multiple forms of media is one of the criteria underpin the personalized learning.
Okay~~ I think thats all for now…hopefully this will be a very useful information for you guys. Feel free to comment and give feedbacks~~tatatatta~~~~
