Online Planner Reflections

  • What action(s) might you take in order to prepare for online and blended learning? 

So far (24th Aug), we haven’t got a 100% clarification on what the year will look like for PE. So, I’m not entirely sure what to do, except that I will keep looking for and learning from resources that I can help me, such as webinars or articles.

  • Considering your previous experience with online learning, what are your instructional strengths & areas for growth? 

In last year’s online learning, we as a team created a lot of well-designed activities for students, which has clear instructions as to what to do. That’s something our new team needs to keep doing.

For area of growth, I think we gotta figure out better ways to collect data and develop assessment methods.

  • Using the 5Cs of online learning, what goals might you set for yourself in anticipation of future online instruction?  

I would like to offer students with captive online learning experience where they will enjoy learning while really learn something. In this learning, I also aim to make students feel cared, rather than demanded or forced to learn. That requires good clarification of the tasks and classroom management. To achieve all these, we need collaborations with all aspects, including the teachers and student, or even parents.

  • How might you achieve these goals? Who might you reach out to for support? 

Our new team and whoever is helpful..


Reflections on survey

I got high score on Confer which is gratified to see, coz I know I’m a good listener to kids.

The favourable answers to two negative peer support questions did remind me of keeping an eye on students peer relationships.

Third of the students voted that they were teased by classmates or some classmates teased others. There were times that happened during or after games, and I did talk about that. But apparently not enough. I need to focus more on how they interact with each other in classes, especially after a phone call from a mom saying that her kid was mocked by a girl who would turn into a good girl as soon as the teacher faced them.

I don’t want my PE lessons to become actions only but without emotional caring.

The other area that I need to focus on is that I need to ‘correct their mistakes in learning’, which I got low. Whenever I spot a problem in the game, I should pause the game and redirect or clarify or facilitate them to the better way to play in the game–either a good tactic that can be used or a correct technique of movement.

I do make the kids try their best in PE. It gets low but the actual response detail has no unfavourable answer. So, I will keep making students try their best.

For classroom management, I got a lot of maybe answers which shows that I need to more firm and more positive when managing the classroom.

Professional Goal 2019-2020

After doing the self-reflection sheet, I found out that I need to focus on Care, Confer, Captive, Clarify and Consolidate. There is one or two threads in each C that I need to work on better. These will make me a better teacher.
Here are the goals in each C:

Keep smiling:)

Care: I will make better use of the kelso’s corner in gym 4 to support students when they want to talk about issues they are facing not related to my class, or when they basically want to cool themselves down and have some individual time.

Confer: I will try to seek feedback from my students about the effectiveness of my learning activities. I think I rarely have done that. I will ask questions to check their understanding of the activities, but I’ve rarely tried to get feedback from them about whether they think the activities will help them learn effectively.

Captive: I will focus on differentiating the pacing of my lessons to accommodate the varying skill levels of my students. And I will also try to customize support for my students based on their specific learning needs.  This will be most beneficial for every student but meanwhile the most difficult goal to achieve, since there are about 40 students every lesson. I will work with my co-teacher to accommodate the levels of students.

Clarify: I will keep working on checking students’ understanding with various strategies, as well as ask students to explain their reasoning to reveal their points of confusion. I will try to develop more ways other than questions. 

Consolidate: I will keep working on debriefing about what we learned at the end of lessons and reviewing them periodically, by asking students. I used to do this quite often, but now since it’s always double class, sometimes it’s hard to debrief with the danger of losing their attention. But I should do this, because it’s beneficial for their learning. 


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.

If you need support using this platform, please don’t hesitate to contact Ed Tech, we are always happy to be of assistance!
