Entry 8: Response to feedback


The feedback I received from two members in the class was fairly similar, addressing two main ways I could improve my blog entries before submitting. These two improvements included the incorporation of pictures and editing my work. The biggest criticism was my lack of creativity. As suggested I therefore incorporated more images in my entries, making them more interesting and appealing to readers. As with all assignments I also needed to proof read my work to prevent grammatical or spelling errors weakening my mark. By proof reading I also corrected some inconsistencies with my entries such as the title missing on entry 3. Through marking other people’s blogs I also realised my teaching episode needed to incorporate more use of technology. I therefore decided to add the use of an interactive whiteboard at the end to bring the class together and reinforce what had been learnt during the lesson. I agree with the feedback I received as the improvements suggested were similar to the alterations I was planning to make anyway. Below are links to the marking rubrics I received feedback from, and one of the rubrics I completed for a peer.

Entry 7: Teaching Episode


Below is the link to my teaching episode for educating Year 3 students on how to tell the time. The lesson plan involves a hands on activity, a work sheet and the use of technology for online academic games.

Entry 6: Lifelong Learning


Life-long learning
Life-long learning involves individuals continually learning and expanding their knowledge past their school and tertiary years. This is particularly important for teachers as they are constantly having to update their knowledge and skills as curriculums change, new technologies are created and different topics are encountered in the classroom. Not only do teachers take part in life-long learning themselves, but they also aim to develop students with appropriate skills that enable and encourage them to engage in life-long learning in their lives beyond school. The ability for individuals to become life-long learners has however become much easier with the development of technology, and in particular the Internet. Access to the internet allows us to readily find any information we wish to know simply by the click of a button. With the advancement of technology we can even actively expand our learning by taking part in online courses. This makes ongoing learning more accessible in our busy lives as we can complete a degree without having to leave home and work it into whatever time of day best suits.
