OUR INSPIRATION

Teaching Learning Process :
 
Learning strategies for students
 
Previous studies show that students depend upon their senses to process knowledge around them. Most of the successful learners tend to use one of their senses more frequently than the others. Over the last few years, the concept of 'Preferred Learning Styles' has been heavily criticised. According to recent literature in the field of education, the idea that a child has a learning style preference is a myth.
 
Visual Strategies:
 

Pupils learn and retain the knowledge better when it is presented to them in a pictorial form, such as diagrams, charts, arrows and symbols. This approach has been refined through the research into dual coding. Using clear visuals of information hierarchy as an approach to teaching practices is an accessible way of giving access to complex regular content. To apply this approach into the classroom management strategy, teachers can apply the following in the classroom learning environment:

 
Use a wide range of visual aids such as pictures, charts, graphs, and illustrations;
 
  • Include handouts and outlines for teaching various academic concepts;
  • Show pictures and explain;
  • Remove potential distractions;
  • Leave some space in handouts where students can write notes;
  • Show clear screens while using multimedia;
  • Use color full illustrations and presentations.
Auditory strategies:
 
Creating learning experiences that involve listening and talking. Successful teachers need to apply the following instructional methods in their classroom:
 
  • Begin new topic with the background of what academic concepts are coming;
  • Use activities such as discussion groups or brainstorming;
  • Ask the learners to read aloud the question;
  • Have learners sit in groups where vocal collaboration is possible;
  • Conclude by summarizing what was taught.
Reading & Writing
 
Using more traditional instructional methods such as rewriting their notes, reading textbooks, and note-taking. They tend to learn better by applying the following in their classroom:
 
  • They must be provided with the written information on worksheets, and other text-heavy resources;

  • Ask students to rewrite notes;

  • Using bullet point lists;

  • Turning charts and diagrams into words.

  • They must be asked to reference written text.

Kinaesthetic Learning
 

Kinaesthetic Learning [or embodied cognition] is also referred to as tactile learning. Kinesthetic learning is the most physical of all the learning styles, as kinaesthetic or tactile learners grasp information best through the instructional strategy that involves the practical strategy of motion, movement and touch. The word kinaesthetic learners indicate students' ability to sense movement and body position in the learning environment. Student understanding of Tactile learners is enhanced by the physical activity such as touching, feeling and moving things. In recent years, the field of embodied cognition has received a lot of interest. The work of Barbara Tversky has shown us that being referred to as a 'kinaesthetic learner' probably describes most of us. The following are a selection of strategies used to teach kinaesthetic learners (or anyone else for that matter!):

 
  • Involve physical movement in the teaching methods;

  • Provide hands-on experience to the learners;

  • Use flashcards to teach;

  • Engage students in classroom activities that involve physical materials.

  • Ask students to draw images of information in the formative assessments.

Utilizing multisensory approaches in the classroom

Other teaching and learning strategies you should research
At Structural Learning, we have been trying to uncover classroom ideas that are both evidenced informed and easy to implement. Organisations such as the EEF condense the findings of studies of classroom instruction. We can use this extensive evidence to make better decisions about how we can teach our lessons. Focusing on the pedagogy is with the highest impact is a good starting point for any school.

The strategies listed within these journals help classroom practitioners widen their range of skills. If you are thinking about making some pedagogical changes across your school, you may want to explore some of the following topics:
 
Integrating formative assessment strategies in your classroom.
 
  1. Advancing critical thinking skills by using graphic organisers to help students organise their thinking.
  2. Provide playful learning experiences that promote divergent thinking.
  3. Utilize dual coding methods to make curriculum content easier to understand.
  4. Integrate responsive teaching as a whole school philosophy.
  5. Build the pillars of teaching by embracing Rosenshine's principles of instruction.
  6. Provide insightful student feedback that moves their thinking forward.
  7. Promote critical thinking skills by using Oracy or dialogic teaching methods.
  8. Make abstract concepts in maths more concrete by using physical materials.
  9. Develop intervention lessons into engaging experiences by using different learning tools.
  10. Make your assessment strategy more creative by giving summative assessments less priority.
  11. Only embrace evidence-informed ideas that have a clear impact.
 
Embrace evidence informed teaching and learning
 
Integrating Technology: Harnessing Digital Tools for Enhanced Education
The integration of technology into the educational landscape has opened the door to a multitude of creative teaching strategies, enabling teachers to craft immersive and dynamic learning experiences for their students.

Just as a chameleon adapts to its surroundings, educators must harness digital tools to facilitate personalized learning, addressing the unique needs and abilities of each individual. Through platforms that support game-based learning and asynchronous learning, students can engage with the curriculum at their own pace, fostering a sense of autonomy and ownership in their educational journey.
By drawing on Jerome Bruner's concepts of assimilation and accommodation, educators can use technology to enhance information-processing skills while also providing experiential learning opportunities.

This aligns with John Dewey's educational philosophy, which emphasizes the importance of learning through experience and interaction with the environment. Technology-based learning tools act as a bridge between the abstract and the concrete, allowing students to actively engage with the subject matter and gain a deeper understanding of complex concepts.

In order to maximize the potential of technology for enhanced education, teachers should remain open to exploring new digital resources and incorporating them into their pedagogical approach. Edutopia and the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) offer a wealth of resources and strategies for effectively integrating technology into the classroom, empowering educators to elevate their teaching practice and unlock their students' full potential.
