When we set out to create and encourage critical thinkers and problem solvers. We need to look at various aspects. How people will respond and adapt to the change. We need to further establish what our students need, do they need constant attention or space? Decoding a teenage brain, is it really difficult to understand teenagers?
I took workshops this year to enhance my understanding and sharing my know how with others.
I have realised that I always look for what’s going to push the student, egg them on to ask questions, to look at themselves as stakeholders in their learning process and something that adds value to their existing experience of learning.
Looking at various aspects of what a teenage student needs is the need now. I am a people’s person. I do not dislodge trust and faith I have in people. Counting on every ones goodness keeps me spurred. I do get de motivated at times but my mentors at work see me through this..
To conclude, I would say that I do believe constructivism provides students with rich experiences and encourages them to reach their own conclusions.
