This research will begin with the statement that a compelling schooling system does not depend only on educators who are technically proficient, appropriate school curriculum, and the provision of other associated school facilities. Many kinds of research into the subject of school reforms and improvement have focused on the significance of organizational characteristics, governmental policies, leadership values, and student- teacher learning processes, all of which are considered in the modern times, as important for achieving a high-quality education. A supportive organizational environment, strong leadership, combined with technical reforms within teaching methods and school curriculum, is most likely to be of optimal benefit for the students. In the present efforts to elevate the standards of the high schools in U.S., there have been various forms of reforms, ranging from an increase in course exigency to guaranteeing competency standards of the educators. Some of the schools, on the other hand, have removed the passing grade standard of Ds and focused on simpler courses and vocational tracks to facilitate learning. The various State education departments, in turn, have raised the number of credits necessary for the core content subjects, created a standard for the content, while introducing standardized test patterns. Besides these various reforms brought in to elevate the levels of education in the US, there has been another aspect which has been gaining prominence in the recent times: instructional program coherence.
This research aims to evaluate and present the instructional coherency and school improvement. This essay also analyzes principal’s role in the implementation of instructional coherency; distributed leadership; teachers as professionals with instructional coherence etc…
As we speak, one of the recurring matters of concerns especially in institutions is how to fully utilize the precious resource found in the library media to greatly impact student achievement (Crowley, 1995). This paper critically analyses the evolving role of library to improve student achievement for a brighter tomorrow.
In this program, we will train all the professionals involved in education on how to undertake education research effectively. We can use several means to improve this program from its proposed state. According to Magyar (2010), improving a program increases its usefulness, value, implementation ease, quality, and impact.
The basis for instructional design is in behavioral psychology, where learning is defined through paradigms in which expected behaviors are part of how the design of the instruction is put into place. In the video “Merrill on Instructional Design”, the topic of instructional design is discussed.
But as people increase their understanding of human intelligence as well as behavior, they are in a better position of knowing how they can learn more effectively. The last decade has witnessed a tremendous improvement in educational standard where the quality of teachers at all level gets better (Brighouse & Woods 1999).
It has come to my attention that many instructors develop the methods to use while giving instructions to students without understanding the needs their learners. Additionally, some instructors use instructing methods that worked for them without realizing that the needs of their student differ from their own.
Instructional methods are ways of objective oriented learning and it involves the flow of information between the students and teachers. There are various arguments regarding the validity of these methods. People often question that do these methods contribute toward the journey of being a teacher.
This paper is about discussing primary challenges faced by an instruction designer during instruction development process with reference to the Denny Clifford case study. Denny Clifford is an instructional design consultant who created a large variety of instructional materials.
those industries where use of technology has caused considerable changes and developments include healthcare, communication, manufacturing, designing, ecommerce, and education. The scope of benefits of technological developments in all of these industries is very wide.
