A Coggle Diagram about Day 2
(DAY 2 REFLECTIONS(1) Pedagogy first, and ICT is only meant to support it. For things that can be done using other means such as whiteboard, go for the easier means. ICT is good at recording discussions for the teacher to check on the learning, and for capturing ideas/logic/reasoning(2) Collection of responses and allowance for inter-connectness - allowing for discussion(3) Prudent use of ICT is advised
, ICT infused lesson
, Success Criteria - we decide and the tools will come once you know what you want to see
, Design considerations for active learning
Enduring Understanding - essential concepts (UbD) students may learn?
What at the skills, values and attitudes, including 21cc that I want my students to develop?
What are the success criteria that can inform me that students are learning?
How do I harness ICT for Assessment for Learning?
, Learner Outcomes - problem solving using science process skills
scientific thinking (open-minded and evidence-based arguments)
, Tracking the learning trajectory - how to do it?
, Phase 1 - looking at the possibilities
, Use of multiple platforms to bring together the various aspects of collaborative learning such as google spreadsheets , google forms, video as trigger, simulation (PHET simulation), padlet for discussion and posting of answers
and Use of thinking routine to scaffold and frame the thinking of the students
), DAY 3
(Vision for LearningIn line with school vision, mission and learning
Self-directed Learners with Abundance Mentality
How to groom students to be self-directed learners?
How to inculcate the spirit of having abundance learning in our studentsEvery child is unique and has innate abilities to be developed.What is the role of science teaching and learning in this?
, People Developer - Learning Needs
, Reasoning skills
- polished via inquiry approach
, Role of ICT
Role of teacher is missing - need skilful and timely scaffolding by teacher along the way
Teachers cannot stick to just classroom management alone but must wear multiple hats simultaneously
, Still need to make sure that the progress of each student is tracked and each student levels up finally
- still need some form of assessment on an individual basic
, PLT - post discussion
We have to be patient and withhold judgement but just talk about observations
Very structured session - time allocated - Data Analysis Protocol
, People Developer Role - PD
How to build in place some structures or processes for each teacher to level up
Every teacher to level up (individually) and as a whole
Do we also want to hear the voices of teachers?
Evidence-based practice - what does it mean - and what actions must we do?
In terms of lesson observation (pre-lesson conference, post-lesson conference) - what kind of points would we be talking about? Evidence of learning in the class?
, Role of HOD IP -
what is the responsibility when it comes to cyberwellness?
how to fit in cyberwellness into the SOW or department workplan?
promote active reflection of cyberwellness issues through teachable moments
and Files - used as a developmental tool
- to see how the topic is being developed
), One new change for Teaching & Learning
, Day 1
(Inquiry Level 1 - how to build upon databased questions and change it into an inquiry lesson
and S - Science Content Accuracy
T - Technical Quality
A - alignment with curriculum and instruction
R - rationale for including item in a test
), Role of a MM (middle manager)
and What to do next?
- revisit the VMV of the school, and the learning directions of the school and the department, to see how all these can be aligned
- to focus on the learning, so that it is viewed to be just as important as results
- work with STs and all physics teachers to move the T & L forward, especially on engagement of students during lesson
