|What is your educational philosophy?
education is rights of all people
education there is no its(the boundary
only religion which can limit how obtaining education
Encourage, Inspire, and Equip. It is my job to encourage my students to find a passion for learning, inspire them to reach that potential, and equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful citizens.
Education Enlightens Life
I don't plan anything. I don't prepare unless I'm teaching some aspect that I haven't tried yet, and then I might draw up a couple of examples before the class. Usually the night before the class. I am not an educator in the usual sense. I'm a successful fake who manages to get people interested in the topic to believe they can learn -- and people who find it easier to understand from verbal explanations and someone showing them to understand something I got easier by reading up on it.
I'm not academic at all. lol
|Teaching begins with fostering positive relationships, and is followed by teaching lessons in a way that is relevant, interesting and engaging. Student newspapers, bands and sports teams nurture children's talents and skills. These skills can be applied and transferred to other areas of school work, and to the outside world. Finding confidence in one area gives students the courage to try other things, even those which seem hard at first.
The latest brain research shows that the brain learns best when endorphins are present. The largest amount of endorphins are released when singing songs we like; then exercise and laughter are close behind. Regular fitness and PE, being able to laugh together from time to time, and singing songs the children like all raise moods, morale, and increase learning capacity.
The above quote is an excellent summary of good teaching practice: tell students how to do something, show them how to do it; then let them try it for themselves. It is the way we learn most things. It would be hard to try something new if we had never seen it done, or been told how to do it. Very few people learn by listening alone; most of us forget what we've heard, unless it is repeated a lot, we say it ourselves, or actually try doing it.
We have a better memory of what we have seen, so can remember an example set by the teacher long enough to try the same thing ourselves. Just as showing students helps them see what they need to do, the students also benefit a lot from peer-tutoring classmates; showing them how to do something they've just learned. It consolidates their knowledge, and reinforces their own learning. I have been good at telling and involving.
This year I am placing more emphasis on the 'showing' aspect of my teaching. It is easy to set a task verbally, and expect children to understand and remember the instructions. However, once the teacher has demonstrated the task (such as something on the computer, using the data projector, or solving a maths problem on the board, or with counters), students can watch first, then try it themselves. Written instructions or other visual prompts also help students remember the steps to follow. Both demonstrations and visual instructions make the subject matter much clearer, and prevent most cases of students asking for a repeat of instructions.
A familiar example of Confucius' teaching method is riding a bike: we were told how to do it, watched a friend or relative riding, then we tried it. Sometimes we fell off, this is also analogous to the classroom: we often learn a lot from mistakes.
Teachers should be strong in subject matter, and passionate about at least one area. Just as research has shown that strong rapport and a positive environment aid in student achievement, there is also evidence that a teacher who is passionate about anything will generally carry that passion through all the subjects they teach.
We can teach children a certain amount from what we know, then, through methods such as inquiry, empower children to learn new things for themselves; leaving them with the desire to go on learning for life.

Every student will learn. What do they learn and at what level they learn can/will be different. My job is to teach and to teach all students.
always give the best for my student and teach the humanity to make them realise about their sorrounding
Teaching is no simple job. But its nothing when you have willingness.
Teach people about things they can touch and feel, on their own terms. This way you are insured that they get it and can apply it to real life.
Learing happens by speaking to others, reading extensively and disciplining oneself into a rigorous time schedule.
I love seeing the word come alive in a person's life as they develop with truth. Teaching is an art, a good teacher study his student and lesson. I must come to know who I am teaching understand some background, how well they respond to what has been delivered to them and to a-just to meet their need of learning. The writer said "I became all things to all men that I may win some to Christ," Apostle Paul. To hold the attention of the student I need to be not drab or dead, but easy to listen to, and a good listener so I might teach by action or body English.
To have my students learn the core body of knowledge in an area and to develop the critical thinking skills necessary to apply that knowledge to an unfamiliar area or in an unexpected situation.
Try first, read afterwards. I can't express deeply enough the importance of practical experience when learning something new. Trying your hand at something teaches you exactly how much you know and what you need to learn in a field. Theory is useless unless you understand exactly what you are striving to learn and the value of that lesson.
My educational philosophy is based upon my 5 TEACH principles:
Think through material prior to lecturing and teaching.
Think of ways to incorporate material in a fun and informative way.
Target classes according to developing key skills that students can use for
their entire academic career (i.e. encouraging presentations, visual
components, group assignments).
Excite students about the material.
Encourage deep learning.
Engage students to feel comfortable and connected to the material and to
learning in the classroom
Arrange material in a concise, comprehensive form, that flows easily and
can be understood in a logical way.
Announce important and pertinent information at the beginning of class.
Allow students to voice their opinions and concerns about material in the
classroom and to raise questions when they need clarification or they want
to engage in discussion.
Create an open, accessible classroom that promotes fairness and equality.
Comment on the need to develop critical reading, writing and thinking
skills and ensure that a critical lens is constantly encouraged and promoted
in the classroom.
Coordinate learning activities and learning outcomes for students to be
apart of and to reach for. Use activities such as TWPD
(Think/Write/Pair/Discuss) that increases students understanding and
knowledge of material by engaging with others and encouraging
individual development and thought.
Help students with their learning process in the classroom. Encourage
questions and comments and develop their thinking processes relating to
understanding course material.
Highlight studentsí successes and achievements.
Hone in after each lecture, seminar and discussion on the key points presented.
