Slide 1 - The Goal of Educating every Student
- Presented By: Timothy Lindstedt
- A Candidate for the Lead Teacher Position.
Slide 2 - Introduction
- My name is Timothy Lindstedt from the great state of North Carolina. I am here in this unique position to articulate my vision of pedagogy success.
- I am a graduate of Ashford University with a BA in Political Science and Government with a MA in Education specializing in Educational Technology Leadership.
- I am applying to teach at the sixth grade level in your district to provide leadership and guidance to not only the sixth grade, but the grade levels preceding to sixth and subsequently up to 12th grade.
Slide 3 - A Philosophy on Education in the 21st Century.
- We need to approach the educational needs of our society from a perspective of a solutions orientated frontier.
- Intrinsically motivated students inspired by their teachers that are excited by their students success.
- This is the era of a student-centric classroom with the potential for a customization to meet the needs of distinctive learning styles.
- A digital learning methodology supported by digital content. That engages students to demonstrate an aspiration to possess 21st century skills required for a technologically advanced global economygrade(Fox News Reporting: Fixing Our Schools| Latest News Videos | Fox News, 2012).
Slide 4 - Classroom Management Plan
- In my student-centric classroom the teacher acts as a architect of the lesson plan, mentoring student success.
- My guidance is to steer the class objectives and course goal in the appropriate direction to reach our desired goals. To create and manage mutual respect for each other and me as the facilitator.
- I will present on day one options of guidelines, rules and expectations I have for the class. Then conduct a collaborative forum for students to decide on what rules and guidelines we will enact as our standards.
- The student-centric management plan is a autonomous approach to engage students in the process to fully understand why we establish protocols. Allowing the students to take charge of their education (Christensen, Horn, & Johnson, 2008, p. 38)
Slide 5 - Classroom Management Plan
Slide 6 - Defining School Models for success
- As educators we must acknowledge that the current school model of a traditional monolithic instructional method is incapable of producing students with the necessary 21st century skills needed for a global economy and a American society that awaits them.
- There must be an integration into a computer based learning system and the use of digital content that will clearly provide our students with a promising future after the 12th grade(Fox News Reporting: Fixing Our Schools| Latest News Videos | Fox News, 2012). Let us not assume all students are on the path to higher education.
- The innovation of a computer based learning environment presents us with the ability to customize student learning to match learning styles. Allowing students to become progressive thinkers that unleashes creativity.
- We need to live in a solutions based frontier with innovative thinking and not focus on the obsolete methods of the past but to concentrate on a digital learning model of the future.
Slide 7 - Effective Lesson Planning
- Designing of my lesson plan is a product of forward thinking that produces results based on good learning objectives. By moving to the student-centered model; I design meaningful learning objectives to meet the needs of real-world applications with 21st century skills awareness ( Developing Goals and Objectives, n.d.).
- A conceptual understanding of cognition allows me to design an animated lesson plan with activities to stimulate critical thinking processes which then necessitates an accurate measurability (Newman, R. 2013).
- The use of the backwards design plan will emphasize the importance of seeing the big picture in my design. There are three stages used to create a backwards design plan (Backwards Design by Crystal Carrasco on Prezi, n.d.).
- I will define my objectives by identifying the desired goal or goals for my class.
- Create diverse formative assessments and summative assessments to better gage my lesson plan design, making appropriate changes for future classes.
- Generate a variety of learning experiences and learning activities that incorporate the multiple intelligences each child possess.
Slide 8 - We need to measure our successes and evaluate our limitations.
- Success is temporary and unique to the individual student. We need to define the meaning of assessment for us as educators; and what it means for our students is imperative for long term success in education and in life (Edwards, 2015, p. 28-31).
- We need to vacate the paradigm of a testing culture and replace it with a new methodology of formative and summative assessments. I would use many different methods of formative assessments to gage and measure my students capacity to understand our desired goals. Defining this measurability in terms of knowledge, 21st century skills, attitudes and the beliefs of each exceptional learner (Newman, R. 2013).
- The Unpredictability of education and the capabilities of children is what makes our system of education challenging. If I am to succeed honestly in educating the children of this school today with the 21st century skills we identified as necessary to succeed in the emerging global economies and cultures, then standardization in any form leads to conformity and puts our educational system in a status-quo acceptance (Lindstedt, 2015, p. 5)
Slide 9 - Assess Yourself Always and Forever.
- In teaching 21st century skills, we essentially need to possess these same 21st century skills as educators. Thus continual learning should be a product of intrinsic motivation or intrinsic motivation should inspire continual learning.
- I intend to commit to leadership that is a necessary tool to instill and inspire the teachers around me. I believe that teachers are highly motivated people that are always willing to diagnose deficiencies in their approach to learning.
- Collaboration is essential to our success as educators as well as other important terms such coordination and cooperation, we use terms like these but never truly let them lead us to a better instructional place (Newman, 2013, p. 13.1). All departments need to communicate with each another. There is so much to gain from each other, like thoughts, opinions, strategies, and the list is long.
- Successful sports organizations work on all of these skills, as well as the most innovative industries. There should be no difference in the multiple levels of communication shared in the education business too.
- Leadership is what ignites the fires of passion in any productive organization. Never fearing change through innovation will produce the next generations of successful entrepreneurs and education is the bridge to these successes.
