Dampak yang terlihat langsung dari revolusi industri 4.0 dalam bidang pendidikan, khususnya dalam proses belajar mengajar adalah guru bukan satu-satunya sumber informasi bagi siswanya. Media sosial dan berbagai aplikasi sudah menjadi sumber informasi yang lebih cepat dan akurat daripada sosok guru. Sampai-sampai tugas mengajar sudah digantikan oleh robot atau hologram teacher. Inilah tantangan yang harus dihadapi oleh banyak guru di seluruh dunia.
Solusi yang saya tawarkan adalah guru harus mengasah kreativitasnya dalam membangun relasi dengan siswanya. Membangun relasi sekarang menjadi poin penting kemampuan guru agar perannya tidak digantikan oleh robot.
Ada dua cara membangun relasi dengan siswa, yaitu pertama guru harus menganggap semua siswanya adalah bintang atau juara. Jika hal ini dilakukan guru maka siswa akan mempunyai rasa percaya diri bahwa mereka mampu belajar. Guru diharapkan selalu melakukan discovering ability kepada siswanya. Guru juga harus memandang kemampuan siswanya seluas samudera, yaitu sikap, keterampilan dan pengetahuan. Guru juga harus memahami multiple intelligences siswanya.
Sedangkan yang kedua adalah guru harus menjadikan siswa subyek pendidikan, bukan lagi obyek pendidikan. Materi ajar harus sesuai dengan kebutuhan siswa. Melibatkan siswa dalam proses belajar dan memperhatikan bakat dan minat siswanya.
Climate Change: Turning problems into solutions
The presentation will use SDGs as the springboard to talk about climate change. Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our times, which needs immediate attention. As teachers, we play a critical role as facilitators of learning in the lives of our learners. Through my talk, I would like to share some tried and tested hands-on strategies that teachers can apply in their classrooms across curriculum and grades.
The Changing Face of Education – Connecting, Empowering and Engaging Learning
In this session, Craig will share stories about the current landscape of global education and the need to support learning in the Digital Age. Craig will explore how to change mindsets and empower learning through the effective and purposeful integration of technology, using case studies from his experience. In a world of constant change, the ability for educators to connect their students through engaging learning experiences will ultimately empower the learning journey at school. Come along and be prepared to engage, learn and challenge your way of thinking.
The 21st Century was when everything changed!
The advent of the 4th Industrial Revolution has changed the focus of education in ways unprecedented since the introduction of the factory education system during the first industrial revolution. Schools are being dragged, kicking and screaming, into the 21st Century; but are leader, teachers and students ready for this seismic shift in schooling?
The role of the current and next generation of school leaders will be pivotal in the success or failure of schools, as we move towards a future that is ambiguous, unpredictable and uncertain. During my talk, I will discuss how leaders can thrive in this uncertainty, demonstrate what schools need to do to keep up, and argue that the future is actually an exciting time for teachers and students alike.
Hack Your Classroom; Making Learning Powerful on a Budget
Teachers are the most creative professionals on the planet! We aim to provide incredible value to the students and families we serve, using few resources to generate an amazing learning in the classroom. In this session, you’ll pick up ideas, tips, tricks, tactics and edtech tools to boost learning, save you time and increase engagement… on a budget.
Ready, Set, TEACH!
Coming from non-teaching education background, taking a leap to be a teacher was a challenging journey. Just like any other skills, teaching is also an art which could be established and nurtured. Based on years of teaching experience, there are two key points to be a better teacher; eagerness to learn and passion in teaching. This workshop is suitable for new teacher with or without teaching education background. Through this workshop, participants will get to learn about teaching strategies and classroom management, which are gained from my experience and my study in Finland.
The Importance of Morning Meetings
Morning meetings are a time when students and teacher gather together, usually in a circle, for an organized start-of-day activity. They can be as quick as 15 minutes or as long as 30. We determine this based on what students need to start their day as lifelong learners. The broad purpose of a morning meeting is to transition students between home and school, to greet them as you would a guest in your house. It’s an informal way to make everyone familiar with each other and with the classroom situation. You can start by welcoming students, reviewing the day’s activities, discussing changes in the classroom, meeting new students, celebrating the accomplishments of classmates, and anything else that benefits from a whole-group meeting.
In this session, we will talk about:
The four components of morning meetings
Purposes of morning meetings
Share and discuss some morning meeting activities that can be applied in the class
Active Learning in Social Sciences
Active Learning has students at its centre. As a method which is in stark contrast with the traditional methods of learning, Active Learning seeks to focus on not just what students learn, but essentially how they learn. There is a renewed focus on how students think, and more importantly, teaching them how to think about thinking. This presentation will focus upon different ways to make learning more meaningful in the classroom. Some of the focus areas will be how to actively engage students at the beginning of a lesson, assessment of and for learning, designing success criteria and the importance of a powerful feedback.
Developing Confident Writers
What does good writing look like? Most students know what this looks like, but many struggle to achieve it. How do we develop confident writers? In every subject, students will be faced with writing reports. Across their academic careers, strong report writing skills are essential; so expositional writing is the primary focus of the strategies presented; however, a number of the tools provides are valuable in creative writing too. The strategies examined are applicable for age levels.
We will look at the power of using exemplars; at strong paragraph structures and at useful scaffolds for building writing confidence. A strong paragraph structure is a winning formula that once learned will be a key factor in helping students pass exams later in their schooling. I will also cover useful tools for self-assessment and peer assessment. I will cover the use of rubrics in writing and how to develop our own rubrics. Attendees will be provided with practical hands-on activities to explore the concepts covered. Finally, we will look at moderation; a practice that does not seem to be practiced in international schools.
Language and Learning within and beyond walls
Learning within and beyond the walls is a fruit of teacher’s strategy in honing, planning, implementing and reflecting skills of the students. Each successful lesson or topic may start with
the lessons from the book and from the set vision-mission and goals of an institution, but when translated to the students’ world it becomes more meaningful and somehow be extended outside their world.
I would like to share some stories and thoughts on projects that happened and worked well and may still be tweaked or improved in the students’ language learning class. The ideas are grounded from the curricula and school’s goal to develop values and 21st century skills.
Tell Inspiring Stories with Google VR & AR
Inspire your students to be explorers & story-tellers of the future with simple and free VR & AR apps from Google Earth Education tools.
How to stimulate the interest of reading and writing for the students in bilingual school
A story can be one of many medias that can be used to learn culture and language. There are various genres of stories which can be applied as teaching instruments. Stories can stimulate imagination and bring the students into the imaginary world. The students may learn many things whether they realize it or not. At this time, the participants will be introduced to some characters in three different stories from Indonesia, America and Japan. Every character has a different quality. They have all experienced different things in this life. The participants also will transform these three characters into puppets and do a short performance. Hopefully we can share something from this presentation.
How to Talk and Listen so Kids Can Learn
Sometimes teachers have the tendency to dismiss student’s emotions. Teachers give advice when the student is not looking for advice. This presentation will talk about why students emotions are the first thing we must consider, Why they are so important, and offer ways that allow teachers to show students that their emotions are valued. These strategies lead to students becoming better problem solvers.
Intentional Engagement for Better Learning
We have been spent so much of our focus on “teaching”, while forgetting whether the students learn. One key aspect in students’ learning is their “engagement”. Whether students’ engagement with the lesson, with the teachers, or with the methods, all are playing significant role in making effective learning. We will discuss several strategies in increasing students’ engagement in these areas, also how to see and observe whether students are engaged with the lesson or not.
Successful Technology Integration in School
Technology integration is the use of tech resources such as computers, mobile devices, social media, digital camera, software application and others in daily classroom practices and in the management of a school. With technology, students or teachers will use it as a second nature. Students are often more actively engaged in project when technology tools are used as part of the learning process. In this session, participants will learn how to integrate technology in learning or in assessment. Participants will explore the SAMR model to integrate technology.
Active Construction of Knowledge through Science Learning Stations
Student engagement can be every educator’s challenge regardless of how many years of experience they are in the field. Student-centred classrooms might be something which is ideal for some but difficult for other teachers to establish. A student-centred classroom requires a teacher to loosen its grip in ‘controlling’ the class by allowing the learners to construct their knowledge through active participation. Science learning stations use differentiated instruction where learners can gather information based on their skill or interest. Student motivation is increased as they work on an activity of their interest and appropriate level without the pressure from peers to finish the activity at the same time. Learners benefit from opportunities working alone or by collaboration with other students. The teacher as a facilitator of the learning process ensures that the students will share responsibility for their own learning.
Student – Centered Classrooms
Classroom means a bonding between the teacher and the students where everyone gets the opportunity to explore under a positive environment. Every child is unique and has different qualities. As an educator it is our prime responsibility to sharpen those qualities. Lesson plans were supposed to be created based on the students ability and not well in advance or during the Holidays. 21st Century demands the teachers to be well equipped to develop the skills of the students.
We often don’t realize that children never “stop”. They always have their mind and body active (except when they are sleeping), as they play, study and following schedules and routines. We heard teachers complain about how difficult their students are to concentrate on their work. They can’t “stop” for a while to listen, read and analyze their work, as their ‘monkey minds’ (that’s what we call their active, untamed minds) are playing around all the time. They think about too many things at the same time. They get angry and ‘cranky’ easily as they are too tired, body and mind. They are not able to show empathy to others, as they even find difficulties to be aware and take care of their own emotions.
Leadership in the 21st Century Learning Environment: How to prepare schools for an uncertain future.
Education is on the cusp of the largest change it has faced in over a century. How do we prepare our schools, our teachers, staff and even our students for a future that has not yet been written? How School and Education leaders react to these changes, how they motivate and inspire a new generation of teachers, will drive how schools perform and how prepared students will be for succeeding in the 21st century.
How to Deal with Parents who are Angry, Troubled, Afraid or Difficult
“Seek first to understand, before you speak to be understood.” – Stephen Covey
One of our key responsibilities as teacher leaders is to maintain positive attitudes toward students, staff and parents to ensure that all children can learn. This includes demonstrating concern and openness in the consideration of student, teacher and/or parent problems and participating in the resolution of such problems where appropriate and modeling appropriate relations skills. (McEwan, 2003.) It is easy to be gracious and warm to parents who are positive and cooperative, but how do you handle those who question and accuse?
In this workshop, we will tackle the reason why so many parents are angry, troubled, afraid or difficult. You will practice the T.A.K.E. A. L.E.A.P strategy so you can respond to angry or troubled parents. You will also learn steps on how to solve problems with parents and practice proactive strategies that will help create a nurturing and healthy classroom/school.
Teaching Students to be Mathematical Thinkers: Inquiry-Based Learning in a Primary Years Classroom
As math teachers we all want our students to do more than memorize facts and solve equations. We want our students to understand concepts and apply them in the real world. So how is this accomplished? While many teachers recognize the value of inquiry-based learning, many may find it a challenging approach when teaching mathematics. During this workshop participants will explore the value of inquiry-based learning and learn how to create learning environments, which allow students to question, problem solve and experience Math.
Creating opportunities for collaboration in YOUR classroom can be challenging. Increasing healthy communication between students can be vexing. In this workshop YOU will work with Craig Hansen (Microsoft Master Trainer & Google Certified Innovator) and your laptop (with www connection) to test innovative EdTech (coding, video & mapping) to invigorate the 2–Powerful–Cs of collaboration and communication. All software will be free, open and ready to use immediately. The pedagogical principles that support success in your classroom will be explored. You’ll also be encouraged to create a lesson (or part-lesson) that you can implement on Monday. It is essential you have your fully-charged laptop with a strong internet connection.
Integrating Technology Authentically and Purposefully to Improve Student Learning in a K-12 setting
Bring your curriculum to life and engage students in ways that you didn’t think were possible. Join Craig Kemp, as he helps you understand your WHY, your HOW and your WHAT for integrating technology in your K-12 classroom with success. In this session Craig will share evidence based research and provide you with the best tools out there to ensure you integrate technology in your classroom authentically and purposefully to engage students and ultimately improve student learning outcomes.
Classroom & Behavioural Management for SEN Students
Managing a classroom with students who have additional needs, such as learning or behavioural problems, can add a lot of stress on a teacher and create potential disruption in a classroom. But, it need not take a lot of additional effort or change to create a harmonious and inclusive learning environment. During my workshop, I will give you some practical guidance and advice on small changes that can have a big impact, and make your classroom a much more peaceful place to teach.
The Future of Classroom Learning with Immersive Media (VR/AR Technology)
Imagine walking along the rim of an active volcano or seeing ancient Roman ruins come to life before your eyes. Nowadays, you don’t necessarily have to imagine. Immersive technologies such as Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) can bring vivid experiences like these to the classroom, with advocates highlighting the technology’s ability to inspire and grab the attention of students in this new era of learning.
Immersive media makes the possible transformation to learn the impossible. Students can learn about space, active volcano, insect, until the internal human body system with fully immersed experience and interactive two-way of learning. Bringing the next level of learning and teaching in the classroom environment.
Teaching Reading by Using Child Friendly Phonics
Many private pre-schools in Indonesia have started not only to teach English and use English as the medium language but also to teach reading in English. There are several ways of teaching reading, but in this subject the writer focus on Letterland, how Letterland can help children to learn to read and how the teachers adopt the method.
Letterland is a method of teaching reading to young learners; created by Lyn Wendon and used in many countries, including Indonesia. Letterland is a way of teaching reading which focus on phonemic awareness, the letters’ sound or phonic and also a multi-sensory system for teaching to read, write and spell. What make Letterland different is, it is developed as a real land/place where all the letters are alive as pictogram characters which have their own special characters, names, sounds, songs, action trick, shapes and stories (Manson and Wendon, 2003).
The ADULT in the Classroom
Emotional Competencies Teachers Need in the Class
Teaching in pre-K-12 classrooms is not a 9-5 job. The preparation and actual work is almost impossible to separate from one’s personal life. Many teachers’ experience frustration and exhaustion due to workload, parents’ expectations and demands from the school. This can take its toll on teachers physically, mentally especially the emotionally . These may lead to teacher burnout or teachers leaving a profession they love.
What emotional competencies do teachers need? In younger grades or with more challenging students, identifying, understanding and managing emotion is certainly required. At all levels, our teachers need confidence in their teaching abilities and boundaries when questioned by parents or challenged by students.
When angered…by a student, colleague, policy or parent, effective teachers need to manage their reaction and respond in a professional manner.
The mastery of emotional competencies is a lifelong process.
Therefore, it is critical for for us to know what are the things we need to do before entering the classroom so we are prepared physically, mentally and emotionally.
