Transcript: My Personal Philosophy of Education = Influences Teaching Practices When talking about our educational aims, we need to think about where we want our students to go. Our aims should be reflective of the needs of our students and how we as educators intend to move them towards that goal. Socrates John Locke John Dewey Influences + Teaching Practices + Classroom Management Motivation for Success Learning needs to be accessible to all. We are teaching diverse groups of students today, and the way to help them succeed is to recognize that we need to teach in such a way as to ensure that each student can find success with the material. Intrinsic motivation is lasting whereas with extrinsic motivation, students are only seeking out temporary rewards. High expectations will greatly impact student success. Classroom Management Allie Von Iderstine Teaching for All We need to connect curriculum to students lives in meaningful ways. It can be challenging, especially given the current pressures and restraints on many schools and teachers today. However, it is necessary to do this to make learning meaningful and lasting. Curriculum "psychologized" Socratic Method By using this method to increase understanding, we are also seeking to get our students to utilize skills they will need in order to be successful with material in the future. Understanding is not just a repetition of material. We want to help students apply this knowledge in other contexts. We can do so through the use of questioning. Welcome to Ms. V's Future Classroom!

Transcript: Philosophy of Education by Ashwini Chawla EDSC 310 Introduction Introduction I am a student that loves to cook and play badminton in my spare time. Background: I graduated with a B.S. in biology and I have previously worked as a camp counselor, yoga instructor, and Zumba instructor. Goals: Become a biology teacher in Southern California Work towards receiving a master's degree Work at a school that I love and enjoy my job. What is the purpose of education? What is the Purpose of Education? Challenge the mind Learn from the past, observe the present, prepare for the future Broaden your horizons Challenge the Mind Education can: help to forge a new wave of well informed, highly intellectual, and morally upright civilians. engrave critical and logical reasoning skills to not only challenge the mind, but also train it to tackle any obstacle. instill an understanding of the importance of democratic ideals to pave the way for an equal, diverse, and inclusive society. Learn from the past, observe the present, prepare for the future Being an educator requires you to explain reality to the young, that is, address fundamental matters that are part of the world around us. This also includes explaining the role of human civilization and its contribution to the past, present, and future. The new generation will have a substantial effect on the future and it is essential for them to educated in preparation for what is to come and what can be changed. Broaden Your Horizons Education can allow one to elevate to higher echelons, whether they are social, geographical, or financial. It transcends borders and limitations. Roles in the Classroom Roles in the Classroom What is the role of a teacher? What is the Role of a Teacher? Teachers play many roles: Leader Mentor Role Model Observer Facilitator Chameleon Teachers have many responsibilities: They interact with the future generation beyond parental influence. They have the power to shape the youth to create a better future. What is the role of a student? Students also play several roles in education: Receptors of Knowledge Future Citizens Motivators and Helpers for One Another They also have many responsibilities: Fine Tuning their Time Management Skills Balancing Life and School Assisting Other Peers Playing a Larger Role in their Community What is the Role of the Student? What are you going to teach? What am I going to teach? My subject area My Subject Area is Biology Goals for my students Goals for my students To enjoy learning biology. To integrate and adapt to new technology. Become comfortable with complex topics by breaking them down and analyzing them. Combat scientific issues head on with consideration for modern technology and solutions. Most importantly, to encourage a sense of community and create a friendly environment in my classroom. Whom are you going to teach? Who are your students? What is special about adolescents? What is special about adolescents and why do you wish to teach this group? "Tell me, and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." - Benjamin Franklin They are the future generation, they literally are the future. Despite their naivety, they are honest and this interaction is refreshing in a world that is calculated. Adolescents are intelligent, curious, and are at a turning point in their life. I want to contribute to the future and inspire adolescents through a positive outlook. What are your beliefs about how adolescents learn? Students learn by example, teachers are the ultimate influence in the classroom. They also learn through relating topics to something interesting or contemporary that apply to their lifestyles. Lastly, students learn through simplicity, and the process of breaking down complex topics into simpler forms plays a pivotal role in their overall learning experience. What are your beliefs about how students learn? How are you going to teach? Designing Instruction Tailored to Adolescent Learning Curriculum Curriculum-What Subject Matter will you Teach? My science curriculum will be tailored to learning, and NOT memorizing information. Today, many teachers teach to test, and I want to focus my classroom environment on engaging activities that help my students learn. The curriculum will also allow for student input, so they can feel involved in their own learning. Memorization will not be the focus of my curriculum. The emphasis will lie in incorporating many creative, free writing assignments and projects. The curriculum will also be open to adaptations and changes, to allow for the integration of current events. Instructional Strategies Technology will be the biggest asset to my classroom, as it will allow for the curriculum to be up to date, while regularly adding new content to existing textbook material. Non-linguistic representations will often be used to foster visual learning and aid in long term retention. Lastly, the integration of group work activities in the classroom will help students to understand

"While students are learning the basic information in core subject areas, they are not learning to apply their knowledge effectively in thinking and reasoning" (Applebee, Langer, & Mullis, 1989) In my classroom I incorporate: Global Educational Learning Experiences Inter-disciplinary studies weaknesses Philosophical approach - community I believe that the school's purpose and the incorporation of the Common Core Standards should promote: Knowledge of essential subjects such as English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, History, and Foreign Languages, Inter-disciplinary approaches (Essentialism & Progressivism) An equality of education (Reconstructionism) Global Education (Reconstructionism) Promote intellectual growth (Essentialism) Relevant theories Aligned to Personal philosophy The following are areas that could be strengthened within my educational philosophy: Community Involvement Citizenship Classical subject matter Project-based learning Alternative assessment models An educational philosophy “becomes the criterion for determining the aims, means, and ends of curriculum” (Ornstein, Pajak, & Ornstein, 2011. p. 3) I believe students should be educated and prepared to: Lead the community (Reconstructionism) Improve society (Reconstructionism) Identify and improve society's problems (Reconstructionism) Understand the past (Perennialism) Utilize Essential skills (Essentialism) philosophy of education (Banks, 1989) (Philosophical Perspectives In Education , n.d.) strengths My philosophy of education reflects: My life experiences Common sense Social and economic background My personal education Beliefs about people (Ornstein, Pajak, & Ornstein, 2011. p. 3) As a result my personal educational philosophy will continue to grow and be modified over the years through continuous reflection and research for what is best for our students and communities. A philosophy of education encompasses: School Beliefs Core Subjects Curriculum Design Instructional Strategies Curriculum Choices end results Role of the student: Explore Education Actively Learn Guide Their Learning Engage in Problem Solving (Values and Benefits of Interdisciplinary/Cross-Curricular Teaching, 1997) The strengths of my educational philosophy provide students an: Equality of education Active & Engaging learning environment Inter-disciplinary learning Personal responsibility Student ownership of educational journey Competitiveness in a global society Opportunities for creativity and innovation personal philosophy References Applebee, Langer, & Mullis.

Transcript: Marilou Hyson: "Because of these formative years for children's development of self-concept and self-esteem, it is important for teachers to create environments in which all children will thrive and develop a positive self-image." Harmonious environments Minimizing competition Utilizing children's intrinsic motivation Minimize external &adult praise Copple, C, & Bredekamp, S. (2009) Developmentally appropriate practice in early childhood programs: Serving children from birth through age 8 (3rd ed). Washington, DC: National Association for the Education of Young Children. Further Explanation: Within this safe community, students are active learners. They take responsibility for their education, realizing that in order to fully develop, they must develop their intelligence and their talents. Students learn from the teacher models surrounding them that there are different learning styles and recognize their individual style. This enables them to develop self monitoring skills which enable them to grow to the best of their ability. The outflow from being an active learner and taking responsibility results in students teaching themselves and others. They see opportunities surrounding them in their classmates and their activities they participate in each day. Further Explanation: Teacher's serve as a role model for the student's. They are a life-long learner and realize that each student and each activity offer a chance for learning. They also serve as a body of knowledge for the student's; they have content knowledge the students are mastering as well as experiences to share with their students. As they model the characteristics and lifestyle of a life-long learner, they use effective pedagogy to create a safe, positive learning environment. Most importantly, teachers are genuine. When a genuine adult models a lifestyle for students, they will be able to connect with it because it meets them where they are. Further Explanation:Students should be presented with a body of knowledge that will stretch their intellectual thinking. This knowledge should align with state standards so that students will be capable of competing in the global competition. It is important that this knowledge is not just mandated information that is deemed important to be passed down from generation to generation, but that the basic academic concepts and skills are combined with the current events that are relevant to the student's life. The purpose is to develop them intellectually, emotionally, and physically. In order to accomplish this, their educational experience must target all three of these areas. It is not just a preparation period, but rather a training time, equipping them with skills that will enable them to apply their knowledge to their life. Further Explanation:When there is an open door of communication between teachers and parents it allows the teacher to better serve the child's educational needs. It creates a scaffolding effect because parents can enforce the knowledge and behaviors students are learning at school, integrating it into their child's life. When this door of communication is opened, it creates harmony for the student. They do not have to worry about being one person at school and another at home, but rather they can grow and develop to the best of their ability. Parents can serve as one of a student's best advocates, so when they are involved in their education, they can perform the research and leg work necessary to find accomodations or enrichment for their child. Finally, families can serve as a rich resource for the classroom. They can share knowledge, experiences, and skills with the teacher and students. I believe that schools should be communities where basic guidelines and procedures are established so students are respected as learners and feel safe. I believe that students are the focus of the elementary classroom. My goal is for each of my students to become an active learner, taking responsibility for their education, teaching themselves and others. I believe that teachers can accomplish this by modeling how to become a life-long learner. I also think that teachers can serve as a body of knowledge, helping the students realize there is an wide world to be explored and the classroom is just the beginning. With a curriculum that equips the students to acquire content knowledge and develop effective learning skills for life, and with parents who serve as an advocate and support in their child's education, students will be able to fully engage in the learning process and become successful individuals.

Transcript: Why should we implement globally minded, 21st century curriculum? Philosophy of Education: Progressivism/Reconstructionism Blend With a Focus On Global Education & 21st Century Skills Can students apply their knowledge of the standards in order to meet a goal? Current Event Studies Geography, Politics, & World History integrated in ELA and Writing curriculum My Development as a Teacher Within My Philosophy Model It is ethical to value all cultures and people groups equally. It is ethical to be just. It is ethical to treat others as you would want to be treated. It is ethical for all students to be equipped to make a difference in the world. Philosophical Foundation for Curriculum Change Follow the Map School & Community Members Being that our school is located only about two miles from the border we have many students that can claim both countries as home. They are multi-cultural by nature. However, their understanding of the world typically does not go outside the walls of Mexico and the United States. The foundation that is set though should lead easily into breeding awareness for other parts of the world as well. How the Cultural Environment Affects the Vision Students might have a lack of focus on fundamentals. Teachers might not be properly trained to teach global education or technology in a meaningful way. Students might not have enough initiative or responsibility to maximize their learning in this more "free environment." Teachers might not have strong enough classroom management skills to keep order and productiveness in this type of class. Math Collaboration Ethics and Values Supporting My Philosophy Collaborative Groups- in class and internationally Common Core Alignment & Influence Global Education makes our students relevant. Technology is creating an interconnected world.(Stewart, 2010). One proponent of this type of “world education” says this, "…building students' world knowledge would enrich the curriculum, engage students, improve school performance, and help children deal with the increasingly diverse communities in which they live…(but) their success will require that they understand how culture, religion, politics, and history influence the world's social and economic well-being (Manzo, April 20, 2005, p.5) .” The United States must begin to take steps towards giving our students a global education with a 21st century focus if we expect them to be able to compete in this international job market that grows in size every day. Otherwise, we are in danger of getting left behind. Assessment & Accountability Research Skills Progressivism and Reconstructionism My own personal philosophy is a blend between two well known philosophies: Progressivism and Reconstructionism with a focus on: Globally-Minded and 21st Century Curriculum Ethical Foundation I have become a facilitator in my classroom as the students engage in global/21st century learning. My students have become more and more autonomous, using collaboration, critical thinking, creativity and problem solving as their primary resources. Multicultural Lessons and Resources A large focus for Common Core mathematics is dealing with real-world problems and applications. Using actual issues around the globe and even in our own nation gives the math that the students are learning a global and relevant purpose. This can be done either through globally minded word problems or through cross-curricular application. How Different Stakeholders Affect the Vision Can students work with other students, contribute their ideas and formulate/refine solutions based on team input? Assessment looks very similar to our current Common Core assessment style. Tests do not follow a multiple choice or fill in the blank format but instead assess the following elements: The greatest purpose of a school is to prepare its students to be successful citizens in the future. In order to do that in this global world students need to be taught: World & Religious Views Together these two elements play in to the curriculum I create and the resources I select. Student Role: “Values are concepts or beliefs about desirable end states or behaviors that transcend specific situations, guide selection or evaluation of behavior and events, and are ordered by relative importance” (Hitlin & Piliavin, 2004). Strengths Debate and Public Forum I value globally-minded people. I value students that seek fairness and opportunity. I value innovative minds. I value failure as a path to success and effort as the vehicle to get there. I value preparing my students for the 21st century world. I value awareness or other-mindedness. I value character and integrity. Technology Integration • Small group based on formal and informal assessment • Use of graphic organizers, sentence frames, explicitly taught academic vocabulary, differentiated leveled texts, pre-teaching and reteaching, realia, collaborative conversation, cognates, assessment modifications, etc. • All classrooms follow a clear I do,
