teaching, express the advantages that the theory brings to their learners such as having several roads to learn and to display their learning through utilizing their strong intelligences and/or by improving their weak ones (Wong, 2005). Diversity is also indicated as a way of motivating students to learn and giving choice for students to demonstrate their learning. Multiple intelligences also permit variety in teaching and challenges teachers to tab the best of out their
importance, it is imperative that they should not be looked at and judged individually when measuring and evaluating one's intelligence. Traditional IQ tests strictly measure reasoning and problem-solving abilities, therefore neglecting other equally significant areas of a the brain (Grewal & Salovey). This calls into question whether or not IQ tests, and other traditional forms of “intelligence” measurements are the most cumulative and accurate way to measure each aspect of a person’s intellect.
getting up in front of an audience is scary, but the real reason behind their distaste for karaoke might actually stem from the fact that they are not very good readers. Their brains may not be able to process the words that quickly making it virtually impossible to do karaoke. This realization made me think of my students who have difficulty reading at grade level and how so many of them hate reading.I began to wonder if there was a way to make reading fun for
The goal of the paper is to synthesis my learning about how technology integrated into the classroom is beneficial to student learning, followed by an examination of benefits and detriments that are derived from effective integration of technology. Research suggests that technology used inappropriately have a significant effect in teaching and learning. Integrating technology into the classroom is an approach to develop better understanding of basic concepts provided it is applied appropriately.
What scientifically based research supports the use of music and musical instruction to build early literacy skills? This research summary answers that question, providing support to educators who wish to integrate music and musical instruction into their early language and literacy programs in schools. This research summary reviews high-quality experimental studies conducted in classrooms with young children
my Mandarin Bilingual Immersion program. Glenmoor is located in the suburban town of Fremont in the Bay Area. The majority of the student population there is Asian which makes up 37% of the population followed by Hispanics which make up 30% of the population (SARC). The initial linguistic position of students is 49.3% speak non-English languages while 14.6% of students speak fluent English (EdData). The majority languages in the school consist of English while the minority languages spoken consist
classroom would hold twenty-four students with a teacher and a paraprofessional. The classroom would teach all the kindergarten standards and would also introduce the use of ebooks. Ebooks are emerging technology that takes the place of paperback books. Using ebooks can make it easier for students to have access to the book at school, in different classes, at home, and anywhere they have internet access. The ebooks would be introduced in the classroom so that the students may utilize them in class and
for the unit test in math." In a traditional classroom, the class does what Simon Says whether they are ready or not. There is no flexibility in ability and interest, no modification to the curriculum, no assessments to check readiness, and whole group instruction and learning is a constant. The Simon Says approach to teaching is just not acceptable anymore. Teaching to the norm, to the average, to the grade level standards is not meeting the needs and cultivating the love of learning in the children
complex tasks (rather than as a subject of study for its own sake) that engage students in extended and cooperative learning experiences that involve multiple disciplines” (Griffin and Holland, 2008). Technology is a good tool to use when accommodating different learning styles. Therefore technology can become a motivator for students to keep them interested in the lesson. Collaborative-team-learning settings aide student with retain formation by implementing technology. Many of the urban school targets
parts of the body. For example, children’s attention was brought to eye tracking, arm movements, their ribcage, and breathing movements. Schools that received the intervention did significantly better on English and Math scores compared to the non intervention schools (20% rise in scores compared to 7%). An 88% increase in progress rate was seen in math. After the intervention,
