Teaching Learn and Development by Mind Map: Teaching Learn and Development

1. Learning Styles

1.1. Constructivist Views of Learning

1.1.1. Learners are active in constructing their own personal knowledge – they actively seek meaning • Social negotiating is important to knowledge construction /learning • Learning includes developing skills to solve problems, think critically, answer questions, accept multiple views • Self-determination is needed to further knowledge development

1.1.2. Piaget: Basic Learning Instinct Schemes/Schemas: organizing behaviours and thoughts into coherent systems • Adaptation: adjusting to one’s surrounding environment

1.2. Growth Mindset

1.2.1. Carol Dweck

1.2.2. Understanding that effort is the path to mastery

1.2.6. Around here - we don't look backwards for very long...... We keep moving forward, opening new doors and doing new things because we are curious.... and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths -Walt Disney

1.3. Principles of Development

1.3.1. Orderly progression/gradual process • Periods of rapid and slow growth • Quantitative and qualitative changes • Individuals develop at different rates • Genetics set developmental potential • Environment determines potential realized

1.4. Student Learning Profiles

1.4.1. - Used to get to know student

1.4.2. creating profiles is ued to create a learning environment based on accountability

1.4.3. allows students to be aware of who they are and what type of learners they are

1.5. Universal Instructional Design

1.5.1. Instructional system designed and delivered with the needs of the least independently able students in mind • Results in instruction that is accessible and effective for all students • What teacher actions are necessary in order to adhere to the principles of UID?

1.6. Inquiry based learning

1.6.1. General - specific question = student understanding

1.6.2. Key Elements Exploration, invention, application

1.6.3. Students Prior Knowledge Not important - students can produce knowledge from observation

1.6.4. Teacher Role leader, coach, modle, facilitator, source of driving questions

1.6.5. Student Role Interprets, explains, hypthesizing, designing and directing own tasks, sharing authority for answers

1.6.6. Specific Outcomes conceptual understanding of principals, comprehension of the nature of inquiry and grasp of the applications of knowledge

1.7. Problem Based Learning

1.7.1. Key Elements identification problem, activating prior knowledge, elaboration of knowledge

1.7.2. Students prior knowledge/skills prior knowledge and skills application is important

1.7.3. teacher role facilitators and coach rather than leader

1.7.4. Student role determining whether a problem exisits, creating an exact statement of the problem, identifying information, data, and learning goals. source of driving questions

1.7.5. Specific outcomes effective problem-solving skills, self-directed, lifelong learning skills, effective collaborations

1.8. Who are your students?? Raising the bar and closing the gap can occur when school boards, schools and educators focus on their planning, instruction, interventions and responses on the following four key tenets: • Knowing your students • Knowing where they are in their learning • Knowing where they need to go in their learning • Knowing how to get the to where they need to go in their learning • Knowing what steps to take when they don’t

1.9. Special Educations

1.9.1. •Accommodating the special learning needs of students with exceptionalities •Specialized instruction based on the assessment of students’ abilities

1.9.2. Individual Differences Labelling 1.What are the advantages of & problems with labels? 2.What is the difference between a disability and a handicap? 3.What is people-first language? 4.Do your friends, family members, professors … did you associate teacher and faculty advisor use people-first language? Why is this so important? - With two partners or elbow partners, 3 minutes to discuss your two assigned questions. Labeling Exceptional Students DISABILITIES versus HANDICAPS •Disability = inability to do something •Handicap = a disadvantage in certain situations Being blind is a handicap if you want to drive but not if you want to compose music or talk on the phone! PEOPLE -FIRST LANGUAGE •Refer to “students with learning disabilities” NOT “learning disabled students” High-Incidence Exceptionalities •Mild disabilities •Typically include learning disabilities, behavioural disorders, giftedness, and intellectual disabilities Low-Incidence Exceptionalities •Moderate and severe disabilities •Typically include autism, hearing and visual impairments, serious health impairments, and multiple disabilities

3.5. Assessment serves different purposes at different times: it may be used to find out what students already know and can do; it may be used to help students improve their learning; or may be used to let students and their parents know how much they have learned within a prescribed amount of time

3.6. Assessment must be planned and purposeful • BACKWARD DESIGN • What do I expect students to be able to do at the end of the course (CURRICULUM) • How will I know that they have learned these things? (ASSESSMENT) • What lessons will be most effective in helping students demonstrate that they have learned these things?(INSTRUCTION)

3.7. Assessment and instructions are inseparable because effective assessment informs learning

3.8. Standardized Testing

3.8.1. Standardized Testing in Canada • Federal • Achievement levels of 13 year olds (math, reading, and science) • Provincial/Territorial • Different uses including math and literacy testing at certain grade levels and Grade 12 exit exams

3.8.2. Standardized Tests • Contain the same questions for all test-takers • Are administered to all test-takers in same fashion • Are scored in systematic and uniform manner • Are different from teacher-made tests and aptitude tests Test Types • Criterion-Referenced • Student’s score determined by comparing performance to established criteria • Norm-Referenced • Student’s score determined by comparing performance to that of other students

3.8.3. Original purpose: •To assess effectiveness of instruction

3.8.4. Criticisms of Standardized Testing • Biased tests • Stressful for students and teachers • Results in teaching to the test • Takes up too much time • Does not enhance student learning • Content of tests does not reflect instruction

3.8.5. Constructing Better Standardized Tests • All tests are imperfect instruments ~ • Even the highest quality tests are problematic if used for improper applications

4. Student

4.2.2. cognative executive functioning • Prefrontal cortex • Takes 20 years to become fully functional • Controls decision-making, goal setting, controlling attention, cognitive flexibility, information processing, and managing risktaking Scafolding/Tiering Backwards Design The Cognative Perspective 1. Mental processes exist and they are important to learning.  Examples of mental processes: thinking, knowing, understanding, remembering, planning, selfmonitoring 2. Learners are “•Sources of plans, intentions, goals, ideas, memories, and emotions actively used to attend to, select, and construct meaning from stimuli and knowledge from experience”Ž (Wittrock, 1982, pp. 1…2, in text) 3. Learners bring knowledge to each new learning situation, and that affects what they learn from that situation (more related knowledge = better learning). A Good Thinker Uses cognitive strategies effectively uses short-term and long-term memory efficiently has attained significant metacognitive skills

5.10. Teaching for Understanding

5.10.1. "Teaching for understanding" is another central premise of Understanding by Design. There should be coherent curriculum design and clear distinctions between big ideas and essential questions. Teachers should tell students about big ideas and essential questions, performance requirements, and evaluative criteria at the beginning of the unit or course. Students should be able to describe the goals (big ideas and essential questions) and performance requirements of the unit or course. The learning environment should have high expectations and incentives for all students to come to understand the big ideas and answer the essential questions.

5.11. Diverse Learners Teacher’s attitudes and expectations, as well as their knowledge of how to incorporate the cultures, experiences, and needs of their students into their teaching, significantly influence what students learn .

5.12. Building a Culturally Responsive Practice

5.12.1. A culturally responsive practice has a broad cultural knowledge and instructional base that grows and changes Teachers must know the following: Their own cultural assumptions How to inquire about students’ backgrounds How to develop teaching approaches and curriculum to meet needs of culturally diverse learners How to establish links across cultures
