Brittni Turner's Digital Artifacts

  1. 1. DIGITAL ARTIFACTS Brittni Turner Educ 430 10105948
  2. 2. “INQUIRY IS THE DYNAMIC PROCESS OF BEING OPEN TO WONDER AND PUZZLEMENTS AND COMING TO KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THE WORLD " Galileo Educational Network, 2004
  3. 3. INQUIRY BASED LEARNING Inquiry based learning reminds me a lot of what I do as a learner. When I want to know more, I go research that topic until I am satisfied with the knowledge that I have gained. In class, when it mentioned that if a teacher is doing all the work something is wrong with that learning environment of the classroom, it clicked with me. Not only am I that type of learner, but that is the type of classroom I want to be a leader of. Students need to take charge of their learning just as much as their teacher. Not only will I inspire my students to want to know as much they can, I will inspire them that there isn‟t anything that can stop them from knowledge except for themselves. All individuals are the key to their own learning.
  4. 4. INCORPORATING DIVERSITY IN CLASSROOMS
  5. 5. INCORPORATING DIVERSITY IN THE CLASSROOM My experience with being diverse isn‟t necessarily racial or cultural, but in that I have a hearing impairment. As a student throughout grade school this made me a “different” student in the classroom. I had a teaching assistant and I required extra help with some situations. Having been one of the students that contributes to the diversity in a classroom, I feel as if this reflects largely on my view of myself as a learner. It impacts a lot more than just my academic performance in the classroom. Therefore as a future educator I feel that this will be an aspect of my classroom that I will be particularly sensitive about. Experiences of being segregated in the classroom due to this disability has left me a huge advocate for equal treatment of students with special needs in the education system.
  6. 6. “ PURPOSE OF PUBLIC EDUCATION ISN‟T TO SERVE THE PUBLIC, IT‟S TO CREATE THE PUBLIC.” -HIGH TECH HIGH VIDEO http://www.youtube. com/watch?v=xfP53 Alnbhk
  7. 7. HIGH TECH HIGH VIDEO/QUOTE High Tech High offers the ideal setting for a high school. There isn‟t segregation based on socioeconomic status, race, academics, or wealth. All students are treated equally and all students are aspiring for the same goals. Students are being prepared for their best abilities, whether that is university, tech schools, or trade schools. None are treated as better than the other. Students are directed to where their aptitudes lie. This is how schools should be conducted. These kids are in an open environment to learning, despite their strengths and weaknesses. My dream as a future educator is to inspire this kind of school culture and climate into my classroom, and encourage all students to achieve their highest potential.
  8. 8. UNIVERSAL DESIGN OF LEARNING
  9. 9. UNIVERSAL DESIGN OF LEARNING The Universal Design of Learning describes the exact type of teaching style that I want to portray: a flexible learning environment that accommodates to all different types of students. Having been one of those „different‟ students I feel as if though I will strive to meet the needs of those students whom are diverse themselves. Having those school experiences will help me to empathize how those students might feel. By erasing the barriers between students and learning it enables kids to have the best learning experience possible. I feel like the photo representing UDL shows this by having a globe in a hand. By enabling students to learn everything that‟s in their potential, they will be able to hold the world with their hands, and aspire to whatever they want to be.
  10. 10. “TEACHERS ARE LIKELY TO BE MOST SUCCESSFUL WHEN THEY THINK IN TERMS OF STRETCHING STUDENTS‟ MINDS BY STIMULATING THEM AND ENCOURAGING THEM TO ACHIEVE AS MUCH AS THEY CAN..”
  11. 11. TEACHING, EDUCATIONAL PRACTICES-SERIES 1 I feel as if though this quote encompasses what teachers should aspire to achieve. Not only is teaching about helping students learn, it is encouraging them to stretch further then their comfort zones and really become learners. I had a teacher like this in high school. She didn‟t just teach you calculus and the math curriculum. She encouraged you to look at real life examples and show us that what we are learning is actually applicable in real life. She caused us to go out in the real world and see the application of our knowledge from the classrooms. This is the type of teaching that I will strive for when in the classroom.
