HTPR 010 ASSIGNMENT
2. GRADE 10
As most learners are controlled by adolescent stage too much, they make lot of noise. Responsecard can help me as their teacher to recognise quickly who responded to the question and how many of them know it even if there is lot of noise. And those who nothing I will also be able to recognise and help them quickly.
Learners in grade 11 are focused and they do not make lot of noise since they realised that are pre-matric while some are still little bit shy and are not sure about their answer. A responsecard can assist those learners who are shy and not sure about their answers to be able to express them and I will be able respond to them individually in such a way that rectify, or I add to their answers. I will be able to recognise and help those who know nothing fast.
Grade 12 class is more manageable, focused dedicated to their school work as they expect to be in University the following year. a responsecard can assist to compare their understanding on the learning concept I taught them and then myself as a teacher, I will respond to them individually in such a way that add most important facts on their answers.
2. They ways smartboard can be used effectively in class to become smart to the teachers and learners in grade 12
Students in grade 12 can annotate over web pages images and electronic documents on their smartboard.
They can enlarge texts on the smartboard to make it more readable.
Highlighting parts of text with digital highlighter ink or smart pen tools
Integrating a smart document camera to display textbook pages and other hard copy literature on the smart board.
Change text colours and background to make it more readable on the smart board.
Audio can be imbedded into SMART notebook lessons to reinforce important difficult learning concepts.
Educators can use digital highlighter ink to emphasize certain things on the smart board screen.
By adding colourful text, video clips, animation and images into SMART Notebook lessons, educators can supplement their oral instructors which can make it easier for students with reading L. Ds to grasp key concepts.
Educators can record processes on their SMART BOARD and then play them back to the class step by step as many times as necessary.
The smart notebook “spotlight” feature allows educators to block off certain areas of text on SMART BOARD which they might not want student to see just yet. This blocked off areas can then be revealed as soon as students have processed the necessary information.
3.1) The teaching board
The need to provide information to a large audience at one time led to the evolution of teaching boards. The whole class or group of students can visualize the information provided on the board.
During the 18th century, teachers and students used clay tablets. The teacher went to each student and wrote the lesson on each student’s slate/tablet.
Green board and brown board
The modern version of the blackboard is either green or brown board. This was introduced in late 1960s. These boards were steel plate coated with porcelain-based enamel, which could be used for a long time.
The whiteboards or dry-erase boards came into use during the late 1980s. They have a glossy-white surface for writing. Instead of chalk pencils, whiteboard pens were used to write on whiteboards. Considering the health reasons and cost-effectiveness, by 1990s most of the class rooms were replaced with whiteboards instead of blackboards.
Black, green brown and white boards
As an old method of teaching aid, the blackboard has advantages of being inexpensive reusable, allow students to keep pace with the teacher and not dependent on electricity. The chalk used for writing requires no special care, is cheaper, without any smell, good impact on presenting written and visual ideas. The disadvantages include time consumption to write, not being very effective for a large audience, content cannot be retrieved once erased and chalk dust may cause respiratory problems. The green board is more pleasing to the eye than black, lighter in weight, more durable and cost-effective. Dust formed while cleaning the board was the only disadvantage which led to the development of chalk-free white boards. Washable or permanent ink markers of multiple colours can be used on such boards as the background is white. There boards are convenient for drawing diagrams and highlighting. The pens used for writing and the solvents used for cleaning have pungent smell and are expensive. Sometimes solvents are required for cleaning the whiteboard when permanent ink markers are used. Added to this is the fundamental limitation that reproducibility of figures was limited by the drawing skills of the teacher.
