Huma Imad The City School Darakhshan Campus O’levels Computer Studies Teacher
The principle goal of education is to create men and women Who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done.” Jean Piaget
To apply the technology literacy and 21 st century teaching and learning skills and approaches to enhance productivity and professional practices in classroom.
* I will spend maximum time facilitating learning and minimum time giving direct instruction. * I will focus on enhancing student’s own creativity. I will encourage them to come up with their unique ideas in the form of Projects. * I will focus on encouraging students rather than praising.
Sub-TopicApproachInstructional Strategies & Tasks AnalysisEncouraging skills Listening and speaking skills Observing and monitoring skills Questioning skills I will allow students to choose project topic from a wide variety of applications. I will also encourage them to come up with their own unique idea. I will ask them to present the project proposal in the form of a Multimedia Presentation in front of the class. I will ask students to do fact finding through questionnaires, interviewing, inspection and observation. I will provide the students the Project Management Checklist which will guide them throughout the Project. Project Management Checklist I will provide the CIE Project rubric to the students so that they can work accordingly.CIE Project rubric
DesignGiving directions skillsI will distribute the expected steps in the form of a handout. I will share sample layouts and diagrams online. For example through uploading them on wiziq, wiki or blog. I will demonstrate the use of MS Visio using data projector. ImplementationGiving direction skills Intervening skills Encouraging skills Observing and monitoring skills I will demonstrate coding sample programs using data projector. I will monitor student’s work and will provide assistance as and when required. I will allow students to produce different coded solutions for a particular problem.
TestingIntervening skills Encouraging skills I will share a list of normal and abnormal data samples through LAN (local area network). To facilitate independent learning, I will encourage students to test and debug their own codes. I will provide assistance and feedback on individual basis. DocumentationListening and speaking skills I will ask students to prepare a Multimedia presentation to demonstrate the use of the software they have prepared. Later this presentation can be integrated as a help file in the software.
System EvaluationGiving direction skills Observing and monitoring skills I will ask the students to review their work according to CIE Project rubric to ensure that the work produced complies with the required criteria. And I will share the project assessment record card with them so that they can make improvements accordingly.CIE Project rubricproject assessment record card
GoalDate CompletedReflection I plan my work. I synthesize the information with the data gathered through fact finding. I evaluate the results of my actions. I identify possibilities. I ask myself questions to help me think about what I know. I organize my current knowledge. I think about my audience when I communicate what I have learned. I use my learning to establish new actions or goals. I collect the necessary information to make an informed decision. I explore options. I make choices. I make predictions about what I think I am going to learn. I formulate a plan of action to pursue my chosen option. I create opportunities. I modify my plan if new information arises that warrants a change. Title : Project Management Checklist Description : A checklist to guide students with project management. Activity to be evaluated: Software development
Schedule: Analysis7 weeksAugust – Sept 2010 Design7 weeksOctober – Nov 2010 Implementation5 weeksNovember – Dec 2010 Testing3 weeksDec 2010- Jan 2011 Documentation2 weeksJanuary 2011 Evaluation 1 weekFebruary 2011 8 Teaching periods per week 32 minutes teaching time per period
Challenge 1: The main challenge is that there is limited teaching time. The period is only 35 minutes long. Solution: The solution is that I should be very organized and well prepared. I should have all the material ready before going to the class.
Challenge 2: It is very time consuming to allow all the students to present their individual multimedia presentations. Solution: I will allocate first 10 minutes of every class for class presentations. I will ask the students to be precise and concise in their presentations. Multimedia presentations should be no more than 3 minutes. Challenge 3: Availability of resources Solution: I will request the school administration to ensure availability of IT equipment required and club periods for successful completion of the plan.
