UKEdChat Session 322: Good Behaviour Strategies

Posted: September 29, 2016, 6:38 pm

Comments:

  • Following on from the results of our online poll, #UKEdChat this week will focus on Good Behaviour Strategies used in schools. Whether in the Early Years, Primary, Secondary or beyond, the behaviour of students can positively or negatively impact the rest of the class as well as interfere with teaching and learning.

    The session will release six questions (see below), so join the session on Twitter from 8pm via the #UKEdChat hash-tag.

    Questions:

    What student behaviours to you find to be the most annoying when teaching?
    Where do you go for support when you are finding student behaviour a problem?
    What has been the most positive intervention made in helping build a positive classroom behaviour?
    What are the foundations in ensuring positive pupils behaviour in any classroom?
    What are the most effective consequences used when dealing with disruptive behaviour?
    Think back to when you were a school pupil. What was the worst behaviour you displayed? - Martin Burrett

  • Salman Khan talks about how and why he created the remarkable Khan Academy, a carefully structured series of educational videos offering complete curricula in math and, now, other subjects. He shows the power of interactive exercises, and calls for teachers to consider flipping the traditional classroom script — give students video lectures to watch at home, and do "homework" in the classroom with the teacher available to help. - Randy Yerrick

  • This article explains how children create their perceptions only on their experiences because that is meaningful to them.  Teachers must allow students to explore to make sense of science through experience. - Randy Yerrick

  • Michael Horton discusses many common science misconceptions that students often ask.  I think it is interesting he mentioned people at a higher level believing we have blue blood because of the way it is drawn in textbooks.  - Randy Yerrick

Posted: September 26, 2016, 2:34 am

Comments:

  • Because of the way bonding is taught in high school, many students believe chemical bonds isa form of matter holding them together. Students do not understand bonding is more of an attraction holding the atoms together. - Randy Yerrick

Comments:

  • I like this idea of having the students write a narrative for how the bonds form and creating a model for it.  I think it would be better if there was some type of computer program where they can create the model electronically instead of using clay. - Randy Yerrick

Organisational Learning — The Learner's Way

Posted: September 25, 2016, 8:11 am

Comments:

  • For schools the concept of a learning organisation should make perfect sense, after all learning is our core business, or it should be. Perhaps that almost three decades after Peter Senge identified the importance of learning within organisations the idea is only now gaining traction in schools tells us something about the approach taken to learning and teaching within schools. With an increased focus on the development of professional learning communities as a response to the complex challenges that emerge from a rapidly changing society, it is worth looking at what a learning organisation requires for success. - Nigel Coutts

Highlights and Sticky Notes:

Certain conditions are critical for the establishment and success of a learning organisation and there are parallels here to the practices of effective pedagogy in an inquiry based learning environment. If our goal is to have every member of an organisation contribute to the learning that occurs then we must establish a culture that allows this to occur. Feelings of safety, acceptance of diversity and risk taking must become parts of the culture. In our classes we establish the conditions where our students feel safe sharing their ideas even when they do not conform with the majority. We establish a belief that there are often multiple correct answers and in doing so foster creativity. The same conditions are required in our learning organisations.  Nurturing a learning organisation is a little like nurturing a garden and Tim Brown echoes this sentiment ""It's about nurturing the conditions in which creativity is most likely to happen, That's really about culture, environment, rituals—the sorts of things that give people permission to explore, that encourage open-mindedness, collaboration, experimentation, and risk taking."
