How’s your Wednesday folks? Anyways, I’m hoping that you guys were able to carry out successfully your task today. I believe that it is a must for us to always be productive. Thus, it is vital that we should not waste our time doing nonsensical things. On one hand, as much as possible, we should write out are plan activities for the day so that we may utilize our time efficiently.
On the contrary, as I was answering my modules, I was confronted with this question, “How are you going to motivate your learners in class?” I began to ask myself; how should I respond to this question considering that I am going to become an educator in the future? To tell you honestly, I find this question a bit difficult to answer, however I’ll give it a try.
Apparently, this blog entry is going to be an educational one. And so, without further ado, let's go directly to the main subject of this blog.
By the way, if you haven’t read my previous blog entry entitled, “Expose yourself: Challenge accepted,” then here’s the link.
Describe how you are going to motivate learners in your class.
As an educator, it is my responsibility to motivate my students to learn. Having that said, I have to make ways on how to fulfill it. I believe there are a lot of ways to motivate them and these are some of the following: 1) integrating technology in the class, 2) having a proper classroom management, and 3) being inspirational to them.
Integrating technology in the class
We cannot deny the fact that we are currently living in an era where technology is being integrated in all aspects of life. In fact, technology has been considered a necessity considering that it serves as a medium that enables people to live comfortably. Indeed, we are all living in a whole new digital world.
Putting the scope in the educational aspect, there’s no denying that technology has likewise been integrated in the curriculum. With that said, teachers are continuously coping up with the advancement; learning how to be digitally literate just to deliver the instruction in a more revolutionized yet effective way.
Technology integration can motivate students in a way that it makes them more excited to learn. Thus, they will become more engaged in the teaching-learning processes. Lastly, they become more focused and creative at the same time. Therefore, as teachers, we should try to be more updated. We should detach from the traditional way of delivering instruction.
Having Proper Classroom Management
Classroom Management plays an integral part in the learning environment. And so, having a proper classroom management allow teachers to have a hold of their class; how to organize and implement things in class including how to properly handle students’ behavior towards learning. Certainly, having a proper classroom management can greatly affect students’ academic success. When we say academic success, motivation is undeniably involved. As teachers, we should indeed aim to have a good classroom management.
Being Inspirational to students
Teachers are considered role models of the society. With that said, it is crucial that you have to be a good example to your students. You show to them that you are a well-respected person. As a teacher, you have to show to your students that you are worthy to be emulated and that you are somebody who can become an inspiration to them. Indeed, it is imperative that you radiate positivity towards learning so that your students will be motivated to learn and do well in class. Teachers should always aspire to become the best teachers they could ever be.
There is no doubt that I am one step closer to my dream of becoming an educator. Considering the status quo of the educational system in the Philippines, I don’t know If I’m competent enough to become one. Besides, my confidence is level is low. In spite of that, I will strive to be the best role-model to my future students. And so, I have to be at my best version. My future students needs a teacher that will inspire them to learn genuinely.
