INTENTIONAL CONTENT

 

We’re supposed to support all the circumstances when education is between difficult events and learning but, even without time, patience, as teacher we need to be dispose to help the students to achieve their goals, even if it doesn’t go with our believes. Along with the content we can form strong minded student’s able to take decision, evaluate the situations in their life with the resource we gave them in that hour of class. Also, we can work with other teacher to support the development of skills in all the subjects, even if we’re talking about math, chemistry, English, history, etc. We can help them to not only receive information but transform their environment.

A LESSON PLAN ABOUT THE MIX OF SKILLS AND THE CONTET OF MY ASSIGNATURE.

 Like I've said before, I work teaching English for middle schoolers and that's a hard age to understand the different type of process related with making decisions, the changes of life. And with this lesson plan I want to help them teaching them the skill of making plans for take decisions at the near future and be prepare for the punche's life gives us. So, I hope you can read it and undertand that teaching basic English doesn't mean to pass boring information to the books into their head, but an opportunity to prepare them for life.


What about those schools without an appropiate content?

 

We already saw what was the flipped learning, but it’s really about working as a group but also alone to interpreted every topic we want to learn about. It has to be interactive, but is it really education like that in every single country and village you work at? For me, the answer is no. Sometimes you don’t have the resources to work with, or the content the schools or government gives you to work it’s irrelevant. I’m talking about those school that take a bunch of students on different ages and suppose to be in different grades but as you might know is in a village where they barely can have electricity or water at every hour.

Like one of the pages the course gives us for information we normally assume that in this century all the students have internet and can be able to work in platforms and send different assignments. In the type of schools I’m talking about they only have one teacher for all student’s and he/she is responsible to teach all the contents, they might have books but are not design for their need or level, and this doesn’t mean the students are “not smart enough” to be on a regular classroom, they don’t have another place to go and see the classroom as a big nanny where they can leave their kids while it’s working time.

And everyone in this pandemic are talking about the different resources, how to teach from distance, make interesting lessons, but what about those ones who won’t be able to learn any content at all, what the government or school will do about it? And one solution I can say it’s using the radios, television, teacher giving lessons with a few students outdoor at 6 feet of distance between everyone. We’ve to do anything we can to reach education to those in really need.

How technologys can help teaxher as a new methodology of flipped classroom

Everyone is talking about how to be innovating at this new type of learning where people that wasn't used to work by using the social media are trying to be successful at it. We already know this generation use cellphones and laptops as they were pencils and notebooks, but what about those stuck in other time, the ones learning how to use this devises. We can use this new era to teach by new content and how to work at long distance to those teachers to understand how easy would be their works if technology was part of it, to know that kids and students are most of the time on snapchat, tik tok, etc., and you as a teacher can use this as weapons of teaching and learning. 

Flipped learning

When I start my 4th semester at UABC (Autonomous University of Baja California), my teacher told us about a book where the students where the one's who makes the rules by a democratic vote, and the teacher same as the students were dictated by those rules, at the beginning I started thinking "okey, this teacher it's a little bit nuts for making us to read a book where control doesn't exist", but when you past the first chapter, everything makes sense, because, when the kids were doing the votes they learn about politics, civics an ethics, also instead of being on a classroom they took gardening and carpentry as subjects but at the same time doing that they were learning about physics and math. I was really surprise about the different type of schools, learning and teaching around the world. And I know that in Finland, the students doesn't have homework, the school along with the parents work to relate the knowledge with the chores at home, becoming the school only a place were you can talk with your pairs about what you learn that day. And that... that's amazing!
