• Reflection and connection on what we learned from last class.

    I love the idea of Guided Visualization.
    Following this concept to start a lesson, I tried something exciting thing.
    Beginning the class with Guided Visualization combined with what we learned from the last class by demonstrating their outcomes, photos, and ideas helps students calm down and focus on what teachers want to say. Students always want to focus on themselves.
    Additionally, this technology has proven to be a valuable tool for reviewing and reinforcing new learning content, further solidifying the effectiveness and continuity of brain learning. Plus some magical words of encouragement for self-growth. There will be unexpected magical effects!

    That's right. This is a part of scaffolding on the other hand, it helps to gain confidence, cause they see the growing of their trajectory, integral part of formative assessment.

  • @黃鳳儀3b521a4e16b1

    That sounds fantastic colleague.

    Guided Visualization is indeed a powerful tool for engaging students and helping them focus. By starting the lesson this way and connecting it to previous learning outcomes, we create a smooth transition and a sense of continuity. Something very important for my students with autism. It’s great to hear that you’re using photos and ideas from the last class, this not only reinforces their learning but also personalizes the experience.

    It sounds like a very powerful tool. Could you specify more about the the method?

    Does it involve a teacher preparing beforehand some images or other materials based on the previous lessons or events ?

  • An effective strategy to encourage reflection and connection on topics covered in the last class involves several key steps. Firstly, it's important to begin with a recap of the main points previously taught to refresh students' memories. Following this, guided discussion and recap activities allow students to share their insights and solidify their understanding. The use of visual or multimedia supports aids comprehension and retention, while the application of concepts in real-world contexts fosters practical understanding. Lastly, regular feedback and formative assessments help assess students' comprehension and identify areas needing further support. By combining these strategies, educators can create a dynamic and engaging learning environment where students can reflect, connect, and deepen their understanding.

    That's it!!! "Personalize the experience".
    But still, be careful of using photos and sometimes too busy taking their photos.

  • @Ana_moderator
    Mostly, I use attractive slides ( also mind maps)and students' photos and videos, which I take for them. (Slides are easier to make than before, thanks to AI)
    Recently, I heard of "Scribing" which sounds amazing to us educators.

    I will try some other day.

  • @Vanny Hi! Yea, scribing is really getting popular today, the digital one of course. In other words, it is 'materializing' some ideas so to articulate them easily. It is actually a unique talent to listen and draw simulteneously by extracting the key points of clouds of thoughts.
