6.4.1 Demonstrate an understanding of the rationale for continued professional learning and the implications for improved student learning.
Classroom management is essential to creating a safe classroom environment. Different strategies can be used to establish the expectations of the students. Discipline is used to teach students to obey rules or norms by using punishment to help the undesirable behaviours. When a student constantly disrupts the classroom, the teacher and other students are affected. Demerits can help involve the parents to correct the student’s behaviour. Merits can help students continue and improve their behaviour towards teachers, fellow students, and academics.
Backwards learning explains itself. The teacher starts with developing goals before choosing instructional methods and assessments. Bloom’s taxonomy can help design the lesson to focus on all six learning outcomes.
Blended learning is also known as hybrid learning. When teaching, the teacher integrates technology with teacher-focused instruction. The outcome is that students can customise their own learning practices.
This graphic explains the different types of blended learning. The various models stretch the multiple methods for how the teachers will be involved.
