Flipped Clasroom ?

Hello dear reader;images

Today, I want to talk about a subject that will deeply affect our educational lives; flipped classroom.

Unfortunately, the same system was applied to us in education throughout our lives. In fact, as we all know, every child is different. That is, every child perceive differently. Therefore, the different system should be applied to every child. This system is flipped classroom.Here, we have to focus on how students learn.

In this system, students gain first exposure to new material outside of class, usually via reading or lecture videos .Late on, classtime is used.

Flipped classroom aims to be able to get the same pleasure by children from the lesson in the class, bringing all of them on the same level appliying different methods to children according to their level.

Here is how we can tell a topic in different ways for studying outside for children.

Why can’t we ? I think flipped classroom should be spread. It’s up to us. 🙂

Those who want to be successful here!

img_rating.jpgWhen you ask successful students “what’s made you successful?”, there are not answer like name of the book, website or classroom. Answer of the such questions is mostly name of the teacher. Well, what should you do to be such teachers? Today, I want to mention these. 

  • Listen to your students: I think it is the most important thing. Before you begin, you should listen to students, even though s/he’s a child. Therefore, you can make him feel that everything he said is valuable. It is an important factor to be able to communicate with her/him. 

 

  • Be happy with your student’s accomplishments: Just like all people, children also want to have people who trust, and believe themselves. If you are happi with your student’s accomplishments, you motivate them to accomplish new things. 

 

  • Make a good risk assessment: You should know to take chance when, where, how. You know, students like to observe how the teacher reacts by throwing new situations. 🙂 Thus, a good risk management brings a good classroom management.

 

  • Life-long learning: A successful teacher means a lifelong learning teacher. S/he knows to always improve ourselves. Thus, s/he aims to be a good model for the students.I hope I could help you to some extent.

Hello dear reader,

Until this time, I mentioned different topics about applications to you. All of them were very useful for education. Today, I want to talk about a concept of technology that will take us a step further in these application.

Well, what is augmented reaility that gradully replaces in education? Augmented reailty is addition of audio, and GPS data which are produced by computer onto a real object, that is enrich the existing content. For example, with this technology, it is possible that you can do that 2-dimensional source render to 3-dimensional, or pictures and writing on the paper  convert it into the video.

Now, I want to briefly mention about two nice applications which were produced by benefiting from this tehnology. Aurasma, and Quiver.

Aurasma : With this application, you can describe an desired object as a source, and you link to this object with video. This video can be existing, or created. 

Quiver : Thanks to the this application, you can gain thinking skill as a 3-dimensional for especially younger age groups. Firstly, you printout a desired painting from the web site of this application , and paint it. Then, you are faced with three-dimensional form of your picture. 🙂

Is technology really a good thing for training ?

I shared a blog about an impact of technology on education in the last few weeks. We all know, tecnology help us about a lot of things. Education is one of them. However, as the days passed, different opinions show up.

Well, is it really like this? Can giving a value to technology in education get our nose out of joint ?

Some studies shows that the children who don’t use technology for their lesson are more succesful than others who use technology for their lesson. Some of you may agree with me, because until ten years ago, we were not such a close with technology as a society, and we used research from the encyclopedia in library.  I think we’re a a researcher generation. Like everything else, Technology has negative aspects  in education.

STEM Education

Hello dear readers,

Today, I want to mention STEM.

STEM is a acronym for   Science

Technology

Engineering

Mathematics.

There are many common Stem areas. Some of them are; civil engineering, computer science, physics and robotics, mathematical biology, astrophysics etc..

STEM is a system focused on working problem-based by using the creativity that we had at the young age, supporting, triggering, and finding solution with the sense of wonder in children. It includes a wide age and level of education from preschool to doctoral education. Students are able to make meaningful connections between school, community, work, and global issues as well as critical thinker.

I hope to increase in value of STEM in our country.

Role of Experiments in Science

Hello dear friends,

I want to mention the role of experiments in science education in my blog today. It is obvious that experiments are important point for science education, but it is also obvious that although most of the people know this, it is not given enough importance. Well, what is the importance of experiments? How experiments play a role in science education?

Our country, the process of compulsory education include science education, but some of the children don’t like the this course, and they are afraid of it. At first, we should to make them wonder about course topics, because request of receiving information begins with curiosity. We can do that with experiments. To give an example, before you tell acid-base, you distribute one blown up balloon and sliced lemon for each student, and you request them to drop lemon on the top of the balloon. At the end of it, balloon will explode because of acidity. Thanks to the this experiment, children both learn and have fun. If you are curious about the excitement of the children, you can encourage the children to the lesson more easily.  Try it and see 🙂
