The SAF is undergoing 3rd Generation Army learning transformations, where the learning environment needs to respond to the high rise in expectation of the new tech-savvy generation in the SAF. The new generation cadets are increasingly exposed to the latest technology and new complex learning methods in school and the society. In order to engage and train these new batches of cadets, an efficient and effective pedagogical approach has to be developed to facilitate the upcoming learning transformation and to support active learning among the cadets. Traditional methods of teaching are slowly being replaced with the integration of new mobile technologies to develop the cadets’ capacity and ability to learn beyond pedagogical …show more content…
In the second part of the training, the cadets will be having hands-on session where they will be practicing with their peers. Practical was carried out to allow the cadets to practice on what they had learned during the lecture. The cadets had to pay close attention on what the instructor was doing before they start on their hands-on session. As the cadets do not have much prior knowledge in the usage of tools other than the demonstration provide by them during the lecture they attended earlier, they are unable to perform as effectively.
The existing reference materials for the students are printed in hardcopy and cadets need to spend time searching for the relevant reference. Some reference shows only still pictures and most of the notes given are in black and white. These information does not really help the cadets much in understanding the procedure to be done for each basic first aid.
Reason for enhance
In order to trigger the interest of the cadets in learning and to be able for them to practice and learn on their own before attending the class, flipped classroom practice was suggested. In this case, the cadets will be studying on the courseware created before attending the class and instructors will be offering more personal guidance and interaction with the cadets instead of having long hours of lectures. After the lesson, cadets will require to do feedback on the stuff that they had learned through online forum. With the

The school aims to have at least 4 members of staff who have all attended a 3 day first aid course and where possible to have all other members of staff attend a 1 day training. First aid should be carried out when necessary by a qualified first aider but it should not prevent someone helping if the situation requires. A list of first aiders is situated around the school in places such as first aid room and staff room. It states that all members of staff including supply need to know who the first aiders are.
Army readiness. The strategic model of NCO 2020 will revolutionize the way the Soldier will develop his military career. A Soldier will focus more on how he develops his professional career by having more rigors condition and relevant in academic phase therefore, having more personal responsibilities. The new professional development system NCOPDS establishes an organizational framework for the development of future generations towards the goal of having competent and committed NCOs. The purpose of the NCOPDS system is to develop leaders in their military career and focus sequentially on educational training and their experiences. This model will be executed and trained through the three domains of learning that are the institutional, operational and
This assignment aims to identify and discuss learning and teaching strategies that are particularly effective in meeting learner needs within the military environment. It will review some of the five main areas Behaviourism, Neo Behaviourism, Gestalt, Cognitive, Humanist, and how these can be exploited within our delivery of learning and teaching, that the delivery strategy adopted is suitable to meet the needs of our learners with in the military environment, and to make sure the correct resources are available and ensuring the delivery of
Deliberate practise also allows us to standardise exposure for all trainees and try to combat stress that may arise from students feeling inadequately prepared for their role. Simulation also allows for learners to choose which skills they feel they need to improve and removes the need for a specific surgical scenario to arise before they can practice it. adult learning thing.
What exactly is first aid? Have the students talk to each other by doing a pair share with their PB/J partner. They will take turns talking about the topic; they will give each other points (sentence stem, detail and complete sentence), and add more information to what partner says. Once they are done talking teacher will do an attention getter to move forward with lesson. Teacher will write down ideas in an anchor chart and state “All these ideas are great, today we will read a book called The Kids' Guide to First Aid: All about Bruises, Burns, Stings, Sprains & Other Ouches.” Students will be given expectations, the expectations are to read with PB/J, P will go first and they will know that they must coach their partner if they don’t know a word. They will walk to their desk and start
Constructivist learning theory applies to how well these students learn, the knowledge, experience and the interactions that partake into this major role of online learning. The Army Learning Management System and GoArmyEd are free open source programs with no set enrollment dates and soldiers receive feedback asynchronously from course facilitators. The eArmyU program facilitates soldiers enrolling in traditional online learning programs such as UMUC. Online collaborative learning theory is represented in each program with variations of online collaborative learning, online distance learning, and online courseware (Harasim, 2012). Online education is flexible and adaptable and benefits military
Another option to holding a course, is to allow the employees to participate in an online course which includes a one hour long web based simulation and a one and a half hour practical practice conference call. The final practical is completed on a conference call with a one-on-one
For students to encounter hands-on tasks gives them opportunities to learn in a completely new manner. Instead of not having a clue what they’re doing, students should be prepared with previous knowledge as to how to be successful
The relationship between teacher and student in Expeditionary Learning mirrors that of a mentor and apprentice. The nature of the program requires facilitators to use their own experiences as reference points for students. How one has or continues to grow is a powerful tool for students. Additionally, facilitators must be comfortable overseeing individualized work and be technologically proficient. Students will have access to a variety of connected devices. Expectations are that students will use these devices to conduct research, connect with others who can also serve as mentors, and develop multimodal presentations. The facilitator’s ability to help students navigate the digital world is a critical element of the
In the Part IV Case Study (Hitt, Miller, & Colella, 2011, p. 567), the entire situation has evolved into a “redline” situation due to many challenges have not been appropriately dealt with. They were either not foreseen, or when noticed, where just coped with and no intelligent management controls were implemented.
The mobile revolution has expanded our ability to communicate at a moment notice. It has made our world seem smaller with the rapid availability of information and ease of accessibility. The ability for commanders to locate and task troops quicker allows for faster more strategic decision making. Going forward information technology and the mobile revolution will continue to shape not only our culture and society as Americans, but our military as
Students are able view the lectures on their own time, they would be able to use class time for practice and valuable activities. The flipping of our traditional model will encourage the students that find it difficult to meet and collaborate with other students outside of the classroom, to collaborate more often and contributing to student outcomes. I will be able to identify problems early on, class distribution and provide plenty of opportunity for practice. (Bergmann & Sams 2012)
Mobile technology is changing the way we live and it is beginning to change the way we learn. Mobile Learning (m-learning) is a revolution in e-Learning. Mobile learning involves the use of mobile technology, either alone or in combination with other information and communication technology (ICT), to enable learning anytime and anywhere. Learning can expand in different ways - people can use mobile devices to access educational article, connect with friends and others, both inside and outside classrooms. Mobile learning also encompasses efforts to support broad educational goals such as the effective administration of higher education systems and improved communication between schools and families. M-Learning is convenient in that it is accessible from virtually anywhere. Sharing is almost instantaneous among everyone using the same content, which leads to the reception of instant feedback and tips. This highly active process has proven to increase examination scores from the fiftieth to the seventieth percentile, and cut the dropout rate in technical fields by 22% (Saylor, Michael -2012). M-learning also brings strong portability by replacing books and notes with small devices, filled with tailored learning
Some of the problems in the use of this Online Learning Environment is its inaccessibility sometimes leading student’s failure to attend timed-online quizzes and activities. Most of the supplement activities is done online instead of doing it in the classroom. Another pressing concern that is that students who don’t have an internet access finds this online learning challenging. One of the challenges in flipped classroom is the inconsistency in bridging digital divide. Flipped classroom lack strong provision in cases where the learners don’t have a home technology access . Although there is an internet connection throughout the entire campus, it is not guaranteed that each students has the tool to access it taking into consideration the diverse demographic profiles of the
