- Yesterday, 24th April 2018, We did three job shadowing. It involves working with another teacher who can help the teacher shadowing him or her to learn new aspects related to this job. Job shadowing helps both parties to learn and exchange ideas. It helps in networking, exploring opportunities, given/receiving feedback and collaboration with different departments and schools.
The first job shadowing was with the maths teacher, the second one was with the sciences teacher and the third one was with the social studies teacher.
In maths lessons students discover material for themselves, they supposedly learn it more deeply than when it is taught directly. (Learning about angles)
In sciences lessons the teacher work with project-based learning, that involves a dynamic classroom approach in which it is believe that students acquire a deeper knowledge through active exploration of real-world challenger and problems. (Windmill – alternative energies)
In social studies, the teacher use brainstorming which is a large or small group of activity that encourages students to focus on a topic (the Swedish society) and contribute to the free flow of ideas. The teacher began a brainstorming session by posing a question «what word comes to your mind when you think of sweden?. Student then wrote possible words on a piece of paper. Contributions were accepted without criticism and sumarised on the whiteboard by the teacher. These words were examined in an open class discussion format.
Finally, all the teachers met. The purpose this feedback meeting was to positively influence student learning.
