Here is a digital artefact that outlines how my views of contemporary learning theory and my Personal Pedagogical Framework align.
This is one of the most constructive assessment pieces that I have engaged in throughout my pre-service journey. Everyone is so different in how their views of learning have shaped them to be who they are today. The most discerning fact for me is to be told by my mentor teacher that I am too creative, and then to read the literature surrounding importance of critical and creative thinking is just as important as literacy (Sir Ken Robinson) if not more. Its a mental battle to uphold my eclectic contemporary views on how students learn only to have them shot down my those who are a little less adaptive to change and difference. Are those teachers who resist change and difference in their own practice less likely to model that to their students.
Thank you for viewing my presentation.
