Applying Communication In Teaching
Theories, principles and models of communication are one of the most effective ways of teaching. It is divided into two parts:
Verbal Communication- It allows us to pass our ideas or words to another person.
- We can create an online video class and have a meeting on it. It will help us to review our work and moreover we will get feedback.
- We can use voice notes to give lectures on a subject and pass it to the students.
- Using motivational words would be a great choice. It helps them to gain confidence.
- A teacher should know how to develop a learner’s personality. So that the learner can communicate well.
- In the process of learning the teacher should give the learner feedback. So that the learner can understand how well he/her has done so far.
Non-verbal Communication- This process does not need words to communicate.
- Here we use our body and facial expressions to make someone understand what we are trying to say.
- We can show different emotions like anger, sorrow, happiness to give a message about what we are feeling.
- We can use different digital materials like word files, pdf etc to communicate.
- We can also set up questions for dyslexia patients.
Explanation of ways in which theories and models of curriculum development can be applied in developing curricula in own area of specialism
This curriculum helps to create a model to develop a learner’s skill. It enables the opportunity of learning through different programme designs. They also look after the improvement of the learners. The designed programme helps them to uplift their skills so that they could create a new opportunity in working.
Analyse theories, principles and models of assessment
Implementing good theories and models in the learning process is the utmost important thing. Models have to be included according to the learner’s needs.
There are three kinds of theories.
- Formative Assessment.
- Summative Assessment.
- Validity and reliability.
Formative Assessment- Here the learners already have some sorts of knowledge which helps them to get selected for the courses. They are already aware of the subject to some extent. It allows the teacher to deep dive into the subject as the learners already know the basics. Assessments help the teacher to understand whether the learner is really interested in that subject or not. When you are learning a subject which is broad and needs to master that subject you have to acquire knowledge from a different perspective. It also challenges the learner’s knowledge so that the teacher gets to know how well he is to solve a problem or how much knowledge he possesses. It allows them to identify where a learner has a lack of knowledge and then try to give it to the learner. After addressing the problem the teacher provides the solution so that he can easily improve.
This process is really fun as learning can be done by some tasks. The teacher can develop a well structured model with questions-answers session, physical activity, giving hometasks, debate competition with a rewards system. At the end of each activity the teacher should give feedback so that the learner can improve.
The best part of this process is that there is no grading system which actually allows them not to fear the difficulties. Rather they can come up with the problems so that the teacher helps the learner to solve it. It increases the ability of learning far more high. And it seems to be very effective.
Summative- At the end of the learning process it needs to examine the standard of the learning by taking examination. They set a benchmark to understand what the learners have achieved at the end of the process. For example, they can take final exams, give projects, analyze student’s performance and evaluation, make portfolios etc.
The advantages of this process is that we can have a clear idea about how the learners have learnt and progress at the end of the learning process. As it can be measured with data or numbers. At the end of the course we can see the improvement of the learner.
Validity and Reliability- If the course gives you accreditation then the assessment must be taken and there has to be a grading system which allows them the progress of the learners with clarity. If the learners can pass the benchmarks they can ensure that their learning has been standard so far. If there are dyslexia students the teacher should set the paper in a way so that they can give answers to them. The teacher has to consider different factors in that process.
There are different forms of assessment:
- We can challenge a learner’s knowledge through various forms of question-answer methods like multiple choice questions, true-false, fill in the blanks etc. It also assesses whether the learners have gathered all the knowledge throughout the course or not. At the end of the course it also shows us whether the process was beneficial or not.
- Observation is a thing that allows the learners to face the problems in a safer atmosphere. The teacher often gives imaginary situations which are similar to the problems of the outer world and observe how a learner deals with that problem. They ask you for a solution so that you would be able to solve real problems in the outer world.
- A teacher can ask specific questions to the learner so that he can understand how well the learner has understood the subject.
- The best way to know what you have learnt so far is to gather all the knowledge and put it into practical action. A learner can put his experience into words or he can simply tell the teacher.
Explain ways in which they can be applied in assessing learning
As it provides numerous opportunities of learning, it also allows us to judge a learner’s knowledge through different activities. Where I can use different tactics to understand whether the learners have got in depth knowledge of the subjects or where they lack. I would try to understand which area that students need to improve.
