When the teaching model changed from traditional in-classroom to online teaching due to the COVID-19 in February, I was a little nervous. It was challenged to designing the online lessons at the beginning. With support from the team and colleagues, I’ve learned and developed some practical technical skills.
In online learning this year, I would like to work on spark and maintain student interest in learning, as well as challenge students, insist on doing their best work. To achieve those goals, I’ll keep research and learn new technical skills. I’ll also learn from my team and colleagues to help me design teaching plans that are more attractive to students. I will give detailed and constructive feedback to students’ work promptly. I would like to provide more opportunities for students to connect with teachers and peers during online learning.
I will work on increasing student’s interest in Chinese learning by:
- Using different ways to input the text
- Using games, authentic tasks to engage students to practice (including oral, reading and writing)
Welcome to your Professional Learning Blog! This is a place for you to post your goals, and reflect on them throughout the year.
- Decide on your goal, perhaps in consultation with your colleagues or principal, and create a post to share with this online professional learning community that you are now a part of! Categorise this post in Goal Setting. Set your goal by considering:
- Self assessment and reflection based on new teacher standards (Tripod 7C’s)
- Previous or new observation data from peers and principals
- Student surveys (online surveys developed and aligned with 7C’s)
- Identify colleagues, coaches, principals etc. that will play a supporting role in achieving your goal, and invite them to view and comment on your post. Encourage them to bookmark your blog and visit regularly.
- Throughout the year, collect and share evidence to support your progress. Categorise these posts in Reflection.
- Encourage your colleagues to share your learning journey by engaging with your blog. In return, engage with their blog (and others across the School)
- You may also like to share work that your students have created or your own professional achievements that may not be directly related to your goal setting. This is encouraged! Categorise these posts as Showcase.
