Knowledge of Possible Diagnosis

I notice certain tendencies that seem to be consistent with ADHD although his age may also contribute to the manifestation of certain behaviors. I am wondering whether or not he has received any evaluations and if so, what their findings suggest. Print this page. Author Aniya

I think it is so important to resort to any and all sources that are at your disposal in order to get a better understanding of who your student is. Aside from being able to use the information for a Descriptive Review, it also gives potential entry/connection points that can be brought into the classroom. Print this page. Author Aniya

Learning About Students as Learners

The more we know each student as a learner, the more equipt we become to engage in instruction that is sensative to their needs and appealing to their interests. Moreover, we are able to tailor meaningful learning experiences that students are eager to participate in. Print this page. Author Aniya

Relationships

While many times we focus solely on the work that we have students complete and their ability to do so effectively, we should also keep an eye out for the way our students interact with others socially. Such would require us to consider the manner in which students communicate, problem solving and engage with both their peers and adults. Print […]

Understanding the Physical Traits

Having an understanding of how the student choose to exhibit their feelings through action, gesture and sound are greatly important as they set the baseline for behaviors that are typically for the student versus those that demonstrate some level of distress. Additionally, this information is essential to share with the students’ future educators to both get to know the students […]

Computer Science: A Need, Not a Choice

How can we encourage a growth mindset amongst students regarding Computer Science? How can we motivate students to believe that they too can engage in Computer Science? People usually say that those able to do Computer Science are those that are either of a certain race, gender, economic standing or level of intellect, but I wonder what has made them […]

Knowing the Definition

What good is the knowledge of what a particular concept means if it is not accompanied with the understanding of how to put it to use? This should shape our assessment practices in that our focus should be to see if the knowledge acquired is able to be applied effectively and if not, provide the support necessary. Print this page.

Perspectives

I love how students who probably thought they would only be learning how to properly code and debug through Scratch were able to leave with much more than that. What we teach our students should not just serve one purpose or solely edify one area of their identity, but encompass many areas. Print this page. Author Aniya

Computational Thinking

Intially, computational thinking sounded a bit intimidating for me because I was not sure if I was going to be able to do so effectively paritally, because I was unaware of what it entailed. I had failed to realize that we all computational think as we engage in different activites. This motivates me to encourage my students to not limit […]

Interacting with Technology Vs. Creating

I do agree that interacting with technology is a lot more common amongst children because it poses less of a challenge. However, I do believe that children have learned to acclimate to the challenges that creating content has and have taken the challenge head on. Certain platforms like TikTok and YouTube have allowed students to take on a more active […]

If we are actually rehearsing what we are going to say rather than actually listening, are we truly listening? Though it may not seem like it, in order to formulate an appropriate response, I guess we do listen somewhat.
