Cómo enseñar: diseño de actividades y materiales educativos

Hoy somos conscientes de que no basta con la preparación que hace el docente para su propia intervención educativa, sino que también hay que preparar la actividad de los alumnos. Ahí confluyen la elección de un determinado modelo de intervención, el diseño de actividades, la decisión acerca de las variables organizativas espacio-temporales, es decir, qué espacio ocupará y qué tiempo dedicar a la actividad, y la elección de materiales, recursos o medios didácticos.

La pedagogía moderna estima que las actividades deben ser coherentes con el proyecto curricular escolar y estar interrelacionadas con contenidos y objetivos. En lo posible deben relacionarse con las preocupaciones, inquietudes y centros de interés de los educandos, deben posibilitar la adquisición de nuevos conocimientos y reorganizar y afianzar los que ya se tienen, deben desarrollar valores, pautas de comportamiento y actitudes que signifiquen un proceso de personalización (autonomía, responsabilidad y libertad) y de solidaridad (convivencia e integración con los otros).

Los materiales curriculares son, sin duda, uno de los principales instrumentos que modelan la tarea docente. Podemos inicialmente entender por materiales o recursos didác­ticos aquellos soportes en los que se presentan los contenidos y que son capaces de suscitar algún tipo de transformación de carácter positivo y optimizante en los procesos de enseñanza y de aprendizaje.

Los materiales curriculares tienen su marco de desarrollo en el aula. Con libros de texto tradicionales y materiales más o menos innovadores, es posible enfocar el proceso de enseñanza y aprendizaje de distintas maneras y formas, hasta el punto que cabe suponer que el material más tradicional puede dar lugar a una clase más o menos activa y participativa y viceversa. Los medios no son más que “medios”, instrumentos puestos al servicio de una dinámica metodológica que es, en suma, la que determina lo que en buena parte ocurre dentro del aula. En otras palabras, el medio en cuanto tal no tiene efectos mágicos como tecnología de so­porte y transmisión de información. El uso adquiere más valor que el medio en sí mismo.

Los medios no sólo transmiten contenidos, sino también visiones del mundo, maneras de estructurar los saberes… funcionan transmitiendo mensajes desde los propios materiales. Se hace imprescindible, en esta línea, que los profesores reflexionen sobre la finalidad y las funciones que desempeñan los materiales curriculares, esto va a favorecer su uso adecuado.

Los materiales curriculares pueden desem­peñar las siguientes funciones: innovadora, motivadora, estructuradora de la realidad, configuradora y mediadora de las relaciones entre los alumnos y los materiales, controladora de los contenidos a enseñar, solicitadora (los materiales actúan como guía metodológica), formativa, de “depósito del método” y de la profesionalidad y de producto que se compra y se vende.

La profesionalización de los docentes depende, en cierta medida, del grado de protagonismo de los profesores en la participación en la elaboración de los materiales curriculares. Por ello, es necesario impulsar esta tarea de producción y reflexión. Pensamos que se debe partir, para la elabo­ración de cualquier material curricular que los profesores pongan en marcha, de un proceso de reflexión y de una evaluación permanente de la funcionalidad y potencia­lidad del material en contextos particulares. La elaboración de materiales está estrechamente vinculada con su evaluación.

Proponemos una serie de criterios fundamentales cuando los profesores adoptan postu­ras activas en la elaboración de materiales:

  • Coherencia con el proyecto curricular. Se entiende dentro de unos grados de flexibilidad y apertura que han de inspirar el proyecto curri­cular.
  • Diversidad de materiales. De esta forma pueden atender a los diferentes ritmos de aprendizaje, los intereses, las motivaciones, etc.
  • Adecuación al contexto. Deben adaptarse genuinamente a las demandas y necesidades del entorno, tan particular en cada contexto.
  • Coherencia con las intenciones educativas y con las bases psico­pedagógicas, ya que las decisiones de cómo enseñar deben justificarse en función de las finalidades de la escuela y de los objetivos de aprendizaje.
  • Rigor científico. Han de tender, dentro de su claridad expositiva y llaneza didáctica, a evitar errores concep­tuales y a ofrecer la información más fiable, verídica y exacta posible dentro del desarrollo de las ciencias.
  • Visión global de los materiales. Deben encuadrarse dentro del resto de los recursos curriculares que horizontalmente (durante ese curso) y verti­cal­mente (unidades de organización intercursos, por ejemplo la “etapa”) se empleen.
  • Reflexión sobre los valores. No podemos obviar en la elaboración de materiales que también está presente el llamado “currículum oculto”.
  • Aspectos formales. Reconocemos la desventaja frente a las editoriales comerciales que presentan trabajos muy elabo­rados, pero hay muchas experiencias de diseño de materiales por profesores anónimos que superan por su dignidad a muchos de los materiales comerciales.
  • Evaluación. Es conveniente valorar sus contenidos y soporte como medio, todo material es mejorable.

    I think that it is possible to develop the lessons using the old pedagogic knowledge and modern technologies and conditions to create the best schools ever. We should change the programs all the time, as Bruce Lee was saying: “Don’t get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” I hope that one day the most powerfull people will understand that the education is the best to develop this world.

    Es necesaria la elección de un determinado modelo de intervención, el diseño de actividades, la decisión acerca de qué espacio ocupará y qué tiempo dedicar a la actividad, y la elección de materiales, recursos o medios didácticos. Los materiales curriculares son uno de los principales instrumentos que modelan la tarea docente.
    El sentido de estos materiales deriva de la decisión de cómo seleccionarlos, qué utilización darles, para qué y cómo organizarlos en una actividad, lo cual debe ser el resultado de la reflexión del docente sobre lo que quiere enseñar, lo que espera que aprenda el estudiante y los procedimientos que deben desarrollar tanto el profesor como los alumnos para lograrlo.

    Como bien sabemos, el mundo está en continuo cambio, y el ámbito educativo también. Ante esta anotación, debo decir que tanto las actividades como materiales educativos deben de renovarse para mejorar la enseñanza. Los profesores deben de inculcar nuevas metodologías, que quizás con el temario que se dé no es suficiente para que los alumnos aprendan, y por otro lado, los materiales. A esto me requiero referir a que las tecnologías avanzan y existen muchos alumnos los cuales no disponen de todas ellas en aulas o incluso en clase, por tanto las innovaciones que se hacen con el objetivo de mejorar no funcionan, y por otro lado, los profesores, estos que se quedan “atrasados” en esto de las tecnologías y no avanzan y son incluso los alumnos los que tienen que enseñarlos a poner un simple power point en un proyector. Creo que se deben ir innovando tanto las actividades como los materiales, pero que los profesores y alumnos, sobre todo los profesores, deben de adaptarse para que así se pueda lograr el proceso de aprendizaje de forma más satisfactoria.

    ¿Cómo enseñar? La manera en la que un profesor enseña puede ser muy diferente a la que utiliza otro profesor, pero el saber enseñar y llegar con facilidad a los alumnos es una competencia muy importante del profesorado.La manera en la que se enseña también depende mucho de los medios y recursos que se utilicen. Los tiempos han cambiado, y con ellos la forma de pensar y las tecnologías. Ya no se concibe una clase, por lo menos de la educación superior, que no cuente con presentaciones digitales y en la que se use diversos recursos, no solo el profesor en medio de la clase recitando como un papagayo.

    Tanto el profesorado como el material educativo debe de ir renovándose según pasan los años. Cada año que pasa evolucionamos y esos cambios debemos de incluirlos en la enseñanza, de modo que el diseño y la planificación de los materiales educativos deben de ser dinámicos y variados. en mi opinión, la metodología que mejor se adapta a los alumnos es aquella que se presenta cercana a ellos y de forma divertida, de este modo ayudamos al alumno de forma integral, sin olvidar que, el diseño de estos materiales deben de estar basados en unas reglas y normas, para que que se lleve a cabo una enseñanza que se adapte al currículum vigente.

  6. Carmen González Mira dice: Responder

    Como todo en esta vida las cosas van evolucionando.

    Antes no había tantas tecnologías como hay hoy en día. Los temas estaban escritos en papel o se cogían apuntes de lo que decía cierto profesor y poco más. Hoy en día también hay papel y bolígrafo, pero como he dicho anteriormente las cosas evolucionan y hay nuevas tecnologías.

    Un profesor se debe adaptar a todas aquellas tecnologías y saber utilizarlo. Un profesor que solo se dedique a la materia escrita, evidentemente aburre y hace que los alumnos se aburran y no capten la información del todo, ni con ganas. Si este antes de ir a clases se las prepara antes, utiliza nuevos métodos (ordenador, dinámicas, participación en clase, debates, trabajos grupales, enseñar nuevos métodos de estudio (diarios, mapas conceptuales,retroalimentación de las clases anteriores de forma diaria …) etc) a parte de la materia (escrita), estos captarán más información e irán con ganas a dichas clases.

    Al igual que nosotros nos tenemos que adaptar a los profesores, ellos tienen que adaptarse a nosotros y a todo lo nuevo.(es una cosa mutua).

    No es del todo fácil saber enseñar pero si se pone empeño en el trabajo y te gusta lo que haces, haces lo que sea para que te respeten y valoren tu trabajo. Si se hace de forma correcta aseguro que los alumnos no se olvidan nunca de los buenos profesores.

  7. I think that a variety in teaching methods is really important. Changing materials and the way of teaching may arouse the students’ interest. When getting to know new methods or media or even seeing the teacher from a different perspective keeps students interested and curious about the different tasks and topics. And as we know, curiosity is the key for learning and intellectual achievements. Also I think that teachers, who prepare the study activities in their own way with their own creative ideas, are likely to transfer their enthusiasm to the students, which will help the students to be interested, excited and curious about the tasks.
    There are different types of learners, some people for instance claim to have a photographic memory, so they are more likely to remember vocabulary for example when memorizing the way the vocabulary sheet looked like. But you can only find out, which is your individual best way to learn, if you had the chance to try several methods, for example in school because the teacher introduced different methods during varied tasks. Introducing different methods to students is beneficial for them and their learning processes.

    En la actualidad, somos consecuente de que no es suficiente con la preparación que hace el docente para su particular intervención educativa, sino que también hay que preparar la actividad de los alumnos. Los materiales educativos están creados por las herramientas de apoyo, y ayudas formativas para los estudiantes cuya finalidad tenga la necesidad de aprender. Es imprescindible habituarse a las nuevas tecnologías y saber sacarles el máximo provecho, y hacer clases dinámicas, que el alumno piense que es una asignatura amena e importante y así aprenderá mucho mas, que no siendo una clase aburrida solo teórica porque no se van a enterar de nada. Para terminar decir que los profesores saben de sobra que materiales escoger y que ellos consideren que son mejores para conseguir el mayor aprendizaje posible.

  9. Marina Marchante Amador dice: Responder

    Realmente no creo que existan mejores ni peores maestros pero si que considero que existen diferentes tipos:
    -Clásicos. Son aquellos que se limitan al libro, a lo que pone en los libros y a realizar todas las actividades sentados en los pupitres con papel y bolígrafo.
    -Innovadores. Son aquellos que utilizan las nuevas tecnologías, no sólo para realizar actividades sino también para su entrega a través de plataformas, correos electrónicos, etc.
    Lo mejor sería poder combinar el método clásico con las nuevas tecnologías, el problema radica en que ésto, sólo suelen hacerlo aquellos profesores que disponen de una vocación más que suficiente para poder buscar estrategias diferentes que ayuden a los alumnos a potenciar todas sus capacidades e interiorizar aquellos conceptos mínimos que se requieren en la evaluación.

    Para comenzar, hablaremos de la profesionalidad de los profesores, éstos deberán de formarse cada vez más ante las nuevas reformas, tecnologías, materias, dado que cada año saldrán y vendrán nuevos alumnos para impartir clases. Los educadores a pesar de licenciarse y aprobar unas oposiciones deben de realizar exámenes cada cierto tiempo para observar sus conocimientos, métodos y estructura para impartir dichas asignaturas. En segunda lugar, deben programar actividades para los alumnos, para que ayuden a su formación. Para finalizar, destacar los pocos recursos que ofrecen los centros, aulas,universidades a la hora de acceder a materiales educativos. Si no tenemos accesorios para el desarrollo de las clase ¿ cómo van a aprender los alumnos?.

  11. Modern curriculum materials are really important nowadays. Teachers have a very important and challenging task if they want their pupils to follow a lesson.Today we have a variety of materials and tools that can make learning much more interesting. The teachers should know how to use different materials and especially when. Who is a good teacher? For me a good teacher is someone who respects students, creates a sense of community and belonging in the classroom; a great teacher is also warm, accessible, enthusiastic and caring; a great teacher sets high expectations for all students; he has his own love of learning and inspires students with his passion for education and for the course material. He has to love his job.

  12. I like to work with a lot of different materials. I liked it as a child and I also like to teach it. If I work with children I often like to let them work on different stations. There are 5-10 stations (depends on the topic) with differents tasks and differents materials. The children go to one station they really and work there. So the children can work on there on and learn about the topic in a different way. Of course it needs a lot of prework from the teacher and also creativity! But I think as I said in a lot comments before, this is a good way to learn. The children arent under pressure. They can choose their favourite. Every child is interested in something else. every child is differnt. In thiy way thei can learn it different…

  13. I totally agreed with the first picture, that how can we make the best lesson. Beside the teacher’s proficience and the tools it needs the perfect curriculum, what is give all the informations for the students, and it has to be fresh all the time and get with the age. But because we are not the same, it is hard to find the best curriculum which is good for everybody, so the teachers have to represent the theme various ways, cause some of us like to hear the theme, some of us like to read it, or visualize. Further they have to develop the student’s skills also. Motivating them, and place them different situation whether alone or in groups.

  14. A teacher has a difficult job in ensuring every child is content in their classroom. I don’t think the question is whats the best technique a teacher can use when teaching, its how can you merge the methods and the qualities of a successful teacher together. therefore, its down to that individual how they try to do this that will result in a success or not. Creative/visual leaning is an important aspect to consider. It may keep the child alert and interested in what they are learning rather than being dictated to from a textbook. The more ‘hands on’ approach being brought into schools today intrigues the child and allows them to work alongside other children in group work.
    interacting with others is a great way to stimulate their thoughts and ideas and improves their communication levels with not only each other but their teacher as well. It will develop their confidence and hopefully reflect well as they grow up.

    A teacher is will have the necessary knowledge and skills to teach a class, they have been examined and educated in doing so. However just having these skills does not mean they are naturally able to teach children in the most efficient and successful way. Explaining how to do something or what something is does not always result in the person being taught learning something new. The information being provided is obviously integral however so is the way the information is being put across. Innovative and creative methods, I believe, is the best way to teach. In order to truly process and learn something they receiver must find the information interesting, or at least relevant. So a teacher has a difficult job as they must always be looking at ways to improve the way they teach their subject.

    To prepare a class its not an easy task. For a really good lesson, where the students not bored, everybody interest in the class have to do a lot of things. For a successful class the teacher need a classroom, which just right, not too designed, but nice, where the students feel good themself. After that, need tools, devices, which with can be taught the material. But the most important are the students, and that the teacher have to discipline them. Its a lot to do, and i dont even talk about the prepare for a class at home. But its much time, which taken from the family, and given to the class. With a great curriculum, and with a good perfomance, this all learning thing could be good for the children and the teacher too. Its important to fix all together, not just talk about the curriculum.

  17. Based learning is used in education.Information provider of books and learning respondent had questions.However, today this situation has become insufficient.Now the design of the required training.Increasing professionalization of teachers and curriculum materials needed.A difficult process because education.And teaching is not an easy profession.Especially nowadays kids are very smart.They want to learn and know everything.Children are very inquisitive.All they need to have an education system that will meet.More self-development of teachers should be aware of and agenda.Curriculum materials other than books visually, as things should listen and applications should be increased.

    Different learning activities and materials can be helpful for many students to understand the meaning of what the teacher wants them to know. Activities represent one way to show the educational content in a different way to the students. For this reason the main aspect of the curriculum can be seen from a different point of view. Good activities can be used to show the students applications of the things they are learning. In doing so the teacher maybe can delight his students for the things they learned and will learn. Beside the advantage for the students, good activities can be useful for teachers too. The evaluation of activities by the teacher or the student’s presentation of activities makes it possible to improve the teacher’s view of the class. Therefore inequality and weaknesses can be displayed. Afterwards the teacher can adept this way of teaching or draw other conclusion for himself. This shows that the use of good activities or alternative learning materials offers advantages for students as well for teachers.

    This is a very interesting article. In my opinion teaching is a very complex and difficult job and therefore it is eessential that they have tools to help them teach classes just as a doctor or mechanic have their tools to help them do their job. I believe that visual learning is one of the easiest and most common ways of learning. Not only does using visual aids help children learn but it is a fun interactive way for they children to learn and communicate with their teachers. In my opinion using visual tools to teach is the way forward and nowadays virtual visual aids are very accessible to teachers and they should take advantage of this new technology to create a stimulating and fun learning environment for their students.

  20. I think that prepare for every lesson for several reasons. First,need to “build” upon their previous lesson. For example, if they struggled with a specific grammar point such as future perfect tense, I would have more exercises and activities ready for them so that we can work out any remaining issues before going on to the next grammar point. Secondly,have to use a variety of teaching techniques and there is not enough opportunity in one hour to use all of them. Therefore, I rotate techniques, activities and strategies from lesson to lesson. While there can be some similar activities used for multiple lessons such as a grammar warm up, there should be some differences and distinctions. Also, when a student notices that you planned a lesson exclusively for them, they will feel special and thus sign up for more lessons. That’s why it is important to take notes during a lesson and then go back before the next lesson to review specifically what the student needs more practice with and what they did well.

    De este texto he sacado en conclusión que existen gran multitud de materiales curriculares y no sólo el libro de texto, el papel fundamental este en manos del que imparte la asignatura; puesto que en sus manos está el hacerla más agradable, asequible, innovadora, motivadora… Los docentes deben programar una planificación sobre las actividades que posteriormente llevará a cabo y usarlas de la manera más eficiente posible.

  22. Preparing teaching materials is crucial for a good education. If teacher preares teaching materials, the lectures will be entertaining and interesting. So, students will be more enthusiastic to learn new subjects and it affects their all education life. For example, in my high school, my English teacher always brought different materials to the class. With these materials we learned lots of knowledge, lots of verbs etc. Moreover, the materials which my teacher brought the class, developed my listening, writing and reading skills. So, the teacher’s duty is so important for the students. A teacher can inspire his students by using teaching materials, and the courses can be so entertaining. If the teacher just comes to the class and just talks about the courses, the lectures will be boring and the students don’t want to listen to their lectures.

    Es muy importante un buen diseño de actividades, hoy en día disponemos de mucho material educativo que utilizando de forma coherente y en relación con los conocimientos nos puede servir de gran ayuda, como por ejemplo los elementos audiovisuales, que captan la atención de los alumnos y es más fácil de recordar para la explicación de ciertos puntos de un temario que la explicación de la teoría sin mas, llevando a cabo unas buenas actividades destinadas al alumno se puede conseguir mejor rendimiento y mejores resultados, el problema es que la mayoría de las veces disponemos de estos elementos y materiales pero no le damos el uso adecuado.

  24. huge influence on acquisition of knowledge by pupils. The basic fundament for education should be traditional activities based on textbooks, lectures and notes. But we also should use the possibilities which are given to us by a modern, present-day world: multimedia, computers, and presentations. By mixing those two types of curriculum it will be possible to achieve the situation where students learn with pleasure and attend classes with curiosity

    In my point of view at the current time the professor have much more posibility to teach because of the technology and that’s give to the student much more posibility for using the new technology wich they will probably use for them future job like powerpoint presentation or diferent software.
    I think it’s the best way for making the children interesting about the class but also they will learn faster if they are interesting and it’s the objective of all teachers. The video is really interesting and “Rick” talk about a very important think because the relation between teacher and student’s it’s one of the sucess key.

    Children are curious, they are constantly asking questions and are full of curiosity. If their environment is safe and feel loved, we satisfy their need for security. Such a child is optimistic, has self-confidence and courage. One of the most important tasks, is to create to children loving and supportive environment. Parent or teacher should not give children unclear goals, and should be aware of the child’s small accomplishments that happen every day. We must commend every positive action, and the child’s progress.

  26. Of course, preparing the student activities is an important task for teachers as the old model of teacher-centred instruction should be overcome. Teachers have the not so easy task to get the students attention which works best by varying learning styles. They can use role plays, debates, discussions, all which brings variety to tutorial activities. In this sense, it is not only about motivation of students. As mentioned in the text, these student activities should not miss their function. The materials which are developped should be consistent with the curriculum project and should be adopted to the context, just to mention two criterias listed in the article.

  27. It is crucial to prepare materials for teaching. It is not just a source, it is actually a tool to make things concrete in the mind so that students can make sense of what they are taught. This way, learning will be more permanent compared to non-material classes. When students are lectured rather than given materials,then information will fly and be irrelevant to the pupils. Producing activities is also meaningful and beneficial as well as materials. There are different types of students with different multiple intelligences. So, teachers should bear this fact in mind and produce activities considering this. Of course, these are not the only criteras that should be taken into consideration. There are more then these as the article suggests such as consistency, overview, evaluation, reflection and formal aspecs.

  28. Teachers have a very important and challenging task if they want their students to follow a lesson and take from it as much as possible. Today we have a wide variety of materials and tools that can make learning unit much more interesting. However, it requires more preparation and time, which of course is not paid and is out of working hours. That is why we can see very differently prepared teaching hours. At practice, I had the opportunity to see very good lessons with many different activities in which the students were motivated and cooperate. And I also saw lessons where students were just listening to a lecture, disturbing hour and did not participate. Instead of a strict curriculum, which teachers are trying to follow, we should pay more attention to the different device materials and activities that teachers should have at their disposal to improve the lesson.

  29. I strongly believe that preparing student’s activity and choosing didactics materials have a huge influence on acquisition of knowledge by pupils.
    The basic fundament for education should be traditional activities based on textbooks, lectures and notes. But we also should use the possibilities which are given to us by a modern, present-day world: multimedia, computers, and presentations.
    By mixing those two types of curriculum it will be possible to achieve the situation where students learn with pleasure and attend classes with curiosity and interest.

    Teaching materials” is a generic term used to describe the resources teachers use to deliver instruction. Teaching materials can support student learning and increase student success. Ideally, the teaching materials will be tailored to the content in which they’re being used, to the students in whose class they are being used, and the teacher. Teaching materials come in many shapes and sizes, but they all have in common the ability to support student learning.teaching.Learning materials are important because they can significantly increase student achievement by supporting student learning. For example, a worksheet may provide a student with important opportunities to practice a new skill gained in class. This process aids in the learning process by allowing the student to explore the knowledge independently as well as providing repetition. Learning materials, regardless of what kind, all have some function in student learning.

  31. When i was in primary school i really loved it when we worked with different kind of material. And what i really loved was when we had to do a paper with a lots of different exercises and we had this hour to finish it. Because we had to do it but we could do it on our own. The experience of using a lot of different types of learning is only positive, if you ask me. You learn to explore in order to be able to firgure things out, to get the point! But I also had teachers who stuck by there book and kept on talking and talking in a boring way, and of course, from these lessons, I don’t remember anything, They were boring and i didn’t pay attention at all. So i think if you really want to teach in a good way, you should try to use a lot of different kinds of materials because then its more likely that your students remember anything and that they pay more attention.

  32. To find out a great interesting and effective method how to teach and in the same time engage an attention of the students is very hard work. The teachers should know a little bit more about the students and about their personal interest to get them involved. The creativity and particularity of the lesson can be the most important part of the process. The activity and attention of the pupils are connected in each case. I think is hard to get involved every person in the room by one topic but is not impossible. The teachers have to follow many rules and regulations which are set by a school system. To skip it over depend on many persons and if their mind is not still ready for some kind of innovation and progress is very difficult to fight them. That is the reason why we should not stop to try and show the people that the innovative ideas, creativity and modern methods of teaching can be not less than useful.

    Teachers certainly play a key role in education process. Their attitude, way of teaching and their knowledge affects students. They need to find the best possible way to reach pupils, catch their attention and interest them. This is not easy, that’s why i think that teachers should feel passion for their profession. They should be open-minded, creative and energetic to create the right atmosphere in the classroom. It is important to motivate students, giving them the power to act, discussion, think and learn. Teachers should also take into account new technologies and methods, which in combination with the traditional will allow to create something new in their way of teaching, enter the positive energy to the class and thus make the study more effective.

  34. In these days, I realized how difficult is to become a good (qualified) teacher. A great lesson depends on so many factors, that it seems extremely impossible to me to meet all the requirements. However, it is necessary to try our best as teachers so as to teach a ”great lesson” to our students. In my opinion, teachers should be well educated, I mean they should try to learn more and improve themselves (such as mastering in Finish education sytem). In addition, they should be really willing to make it better, to take into account all aspects in order to teach an effective lesson. Their teaching should correspond to children’s needs. That is why a teaching can be always the same. Teachers have to be flexible, ready to change their teaching if they realize that is not working, ready to evaluate every minute themselves. Because each person have different capacity to absorb the knowledge. If you are a teacher, you cannot expect the same capacity for your all students, or course every students will have different attitudes towards the schools. Also, you should remember that you will have lots of students who do not willing to learn or create something.

    The best teachers I remember from my school and whom I actually learned a lot from are those who used materials and visual learning. Making the classroom a fun energetic place makes the work memorable and this is the teachers duty to be innovative. The use of the Internet and posters and flashcards are all useful ways of learning for the student. These are all accessible materials, it is the teacher who should come up with the ideas to make learning happen in the classroom in a more effective way than the traditional way of writing notes. They’re are many websites available for students and teachers with learning activities and ideas for learning activities. Some children learn more from practical work instead so activites are a good way of teaching more effectively to suit every childs needs.

  36. I think that one of the most challenging tasks for the teacher is, properly choose the materials, which he is going to use to teach. Good teacher should prepare his lessons in the best way. Decide which things should be given, how and when. In my opinion the main trait, which good teacher should have is passion. It’s very important if teachers are passionate about what they are teaching. In this way they can easily inspire pupils and cause up interest. He also should have authority because it’s useful for the relationship among the teacher and students. All ways of teaching are good if they are effective.

  37. I think that the right choice of teaching methods and what materials teachers use in the classroom have strong impact on the learning process. It is important to balance the use of traditional materials, such as books, notes, lecture-based lessons, with the more modern and innovative ones – interactive blackboards, computers, multimedia. The use of the latter can boost the learning process; however, one needs to be be careful in order not to make the media more important than the content of the lesson. The most important element of a lesson is still the teacher, who needs to know clearly what he or she wants to achieve and is the aim of a particular task.

    I think the good teacher or professor is preparing his classes with traditional materials, such as incorporating curriculum materials,is that even with a blank paper and not an academic book will conveys enough material to develop a theme. Every good teacher brings the day’s lesson learned, or even tells you stories and adventures for the class is not so boring,and it wakes you up interest in the subject, you just finding even better with the examples that told you that the material.I think it is a very important task that every teacher select both traditional resources and materials as innovators,to teach their classes, it is essential to choose adecuadmente because it is fundamental to the development tools.Good teacher should be helpful,friendly,enthusiastic,firm,fair,responsive and also inspirational.

  39. I remember when I was in high school, how much I loved it when we worked with different kind of materials. I really loved it. Why? Because it keeps you entertained! You are present in the class, you pay attention, you learn through different kind of ways, you can have fun and explore during learning new thins. The experience of using a lot of different types of learning is only positive, if you ask me. You learn to cope in other situation, you learn to explore in orther to be able to firgure things out, the get the point! But I also had teachers who stuck by there book and kept on talking and talking in a boring way, well, from these lessons, I don’t remember anything, and at the moment itself, I thought they were boring and didn’t trigger my attention at all..

    I found this text very interesting. The picture of “a great lesson” is a messy way of showing how a great lesson should be. We are actually pretty good with working with different materials in the classroom and with students. The Swedish school system and government makes that possible for us. But there are obviously exceptions among teachers… Sometimes you meet teachers who are stuck in their old methods or teachers who are to lazy to develop or use materials, they think it’s better to work with only the books. This is so unfortunate and uninspiring, but in some ways I can understand them… The teacher job is very complex there days and there are a lot of work to do, for example, in Sweden all teachers have to write long reviews of each student and that’s both good and bad, since the time may be necessary to develop materials and some reviews are unnecessary. This question of “How teaching design activities and materials” is very hard and we may discuss it forever. But I think that we should be creative and help each other. Each teacher should have their own activities and materials to help the childrens learning process and make the lessons better.

  41. Nowadays the educational system becomes more and more open for the use of various resources and materials and for the development of a more flexible and varied methods of teaching.
    In the times our parents went to school, this was unthinkable. The practise was to get lectures and study silent what is written in the books.
    We are can be really lucky, that this system of education is overcome. With all the resources we have today, just regarding for example the media, or in sience our technology, it would be a shame to leave these variety of possibilities unused and stick to the same routine.

  42. I think that good teachers should have their own curriculum and also some other avtivities and tools to prepare good lessons. The worst thing in my opinion is to have only textbooks and to give students some information and that’s it. I think that if teachers have interesting ideas to teach then students want to learn and they want to listen what teacher want to say. Good teachers should preapre some projects for students so they can work on their own or in the groups not only listen what the teacher need to say.

    Un buen maestro, bajo mi punto de vista, es aquel que prepara sus clases combinando diversas herramientas, con el único objetivo de intentar que sus alumnos saquen el mayor partido posible a cada clase. Es aquel que utiliza la enseñanza clásica (basada en los libros….), y las nuevas tecnologías (pizarras electrónicas, proyectores de imágenes y vídeos….) así lo requiera el temario que se este dando en el momento, adaptándose siempre en las capacidades y necesidades del alumnado, pues es lo más importante. El profesorado es el encargado de observar si su alumnado comprende o interioriza mejor el contenido mediante unas herramientas u otras y de ahí, ir combinándolas como sea necesario para facilitarles el estudio y que cada sesión sea lo más eficiente posible.

  44. I think It is so important that the teachers knows their curriculum and then start to do their own curriculum materials and find new thinking ways to work with the curriculum. I don´t like when teacher only have textbooks and materials that a company had make from what it stands in the curriculum. Because it´s just one way to see it. Every person can do their own interpretation of the curriculum and through that finding new amazing ways to work in the classroom, make new materials that other teacher can take part of, and more activities how to learn in different subject.
    The most professional teacher is the teacher that has the courage to interpret the curriculum and make materials and activities from how he/she experience the curriculum.

    Este artículo pone en evidencia el hecho que el diseño y la preparación de las actividades de los alumnos,que incluye la elección de materiales y medios educativos,es una etapa fundamental en el proceso educativo. Todo eso es muy importante porque no solo permite presentar los contenidos,sino también condiciona la cualidad del aprendizaje. En efecto el papel de los medios es transmitir las informaciónes pero la elección de un medio o de un otro puede condicionar el alcanzar de la adquisición de esas,porque es necesario tener en cuenta las especificas necesidades de los estudiantes y otros factores y los recursos tienen que ser lo más adecuados posible y estimulantes. Por eso los profesores tienen que reflexionar en manera diligente en la elaboración de los materiales curriculares y planificar su trabajo para asegurar el mejor proceso de enseñanza-aprendizaje posible.

  46. Teachers need to use many different materials in their classrooms when they are making lessons. Textbooks are handy for teaching the main lesson but they also need to use other materials to help explain the full lesson. Teachers should use flash cards and posters for visual learning. Since we now can use technology in the classroom I think teachers should use clips from the Internet where possible to explain their topics. This will help as many students need visual learning to help them to understand. Teachers should expand on their original teaching methods and create new tools to help teach their students. There are a lot more options nowadays and this will help the current education system to progress.

    This article is a good summery about the educative setting from the Institution school. To be a teacher is a very multifaceted Job where you have to improve and develop new ideas all the time. I am really glad to study at a university, where we learn about all this aspects of teaching, because it is not common, especially for teacher education for the “Gymnasium”. In my opinion you can only be a good teacher if you remind yourself to all this aspects and if you are a self-reflective person. It is important to be open for other opinions and ideas to improve yourself. Teachers should exactly impart this knowledge of behaviour to the pupils and also to other teachers. To make mistakes and to be wrong shouldn’t be as stigmatized than now anymore.

    Tras el artículo podemos concluir que las actividades y materiales son necesarios y muy importantes para llevar a cabo una enseñanza o un aprendizaje adecuado por parte del educador o profesor. Tanto los materiales como las actividades es imprescindible prepararlas para elaborar la guía de la intervención que llevará a cabo el educador y así poder lograr un éxito positivo. De esta manera el docente se sentirá motivado y elaborará con entusiasmo sus tareas y las demás actividades gracias a su ejemplo a seguir que sería el profesor o educador.

  49. Cathérine Jové Skoluda dice: Responder

    I agree with statement, that the success of a lesson in school depends a lot on preparation, the motivation the teacher shows and the way he tries to transfer contents. Students need a teacher who behaves in a motivating, impassionate way to arouse their interest. It´s really important, that the teacher uses different sorts of media like traditional workbooks, modern media and especially the activity of his students. There are lots of teachers who always work with the same material over years and just cross out the parts that aren´t actual anymore for example on a work sheet, so that the student can see, that he prepared it years ago. I also had a history teacher during my schooldays, who always did the same in his classes, he just opened his book, started to read the first sentences and then he always has lost the plot and started talking about actual things in the news. That was sometimes interesting, but I learned quite nothing about history. He has never asked questions, we`ve never had to work in groups…you could sleep and he didn`t realize this. So he never seemed prepared for his classes and so students never were interested in his subject and also weren´t prepared.

  50. Nowdays you can encounter so many teachers who lost their motivation to teach which is really a tradgedy. I think a teacher should not only make the students feel welcome and respected but also have fun with their work.
    You can see alone at the materials a teacher has if he likes his job and is good at it or not. For me, materials are the foundation of a good, well-organized and planned lesson. Don’t get me wrong I like to take stuff from coursebooks too, but the materials you collect all your years as teacher are as important as the books and if you do it right you make them one time and have them your whole teacher career.
    They should be your companion in your job as a teacher.

    Este texto en relación con la innovación y creatividad del docente respecto a la creación de herramientas es donde entra en juego las habilidades especificas de cada profesor/maestro, por lo que obviando las cualidades propias de cada ser humano deberíamos de plantearnos si verdaderamente se forma en nuestras universidades a los futuros maestros con este grado de innovación que el texto explica que es necesario. Por otra parte una conclusión positiva que he leído entre líneas es como estamos dejando atrás la escuela tradicional con este tipo de habilidades que se requieren a modo de requisitos básicos a adquirir en las nuevas generaciones de docentes.

  52. Not everyone can be a teacher. There are many advices, how to help them, how to become a good teacher. Not everyone use it. I know many teachers who should not become a teachers, with no doubt. A great lesson, as we could see, has many factors, such as disciplining, planning, experience, and others. But the most important is Teaching style. I believe, that if children are wrongly taught, it is mostly teacher faul. I know that there are exeptions,
    but 90% of this situation happens. If a person loves to teach, will be a great teacher. If picked this profession because didn’t get to another, it is obious, will not be a great role model teacher.

  53. We’re facing the problem that there is a huge group of teachers that do not put much effort in their work. They’re trying to do it as easy for them as possible and as a result we have bored students that doesn’t have even the smallest desire to learn something. I see trough my school experience that when the teacher does his job with passion , even if I in general don’t like the subject I’m more interested and learning is not that hard anymore. To make it happened it doesn’t require really big effort, starting with making a contact with students instead of reading slides from presentation can make a difference.

    La tarea de cómo enseñar, es competencia plena del educador. Cada maestro tiene la suya propia, que puede ser más o menos acertada, y que por lo tanto podrá obtener mejores o peores resultados académicos, pero toda tarea debe de ser coherente con el proyecto curricular y estar en relación con los objetivos y contenidos de la materia a impartir.
    Desde mi punto de vista, hay que hacer del alumnado el protagonista de este proceso de enseñanza y aprendizaje, por lo tanto el diseño de las actividades y los materiales que vayamos a emplear en las para llevarlo a cabo, han de ser lo más reales posibles para despertar la motivación y el interés en el mismo, y esto se consigue, ya no solo en ámbito educativo, sino en todos, INNOVANDO. No será lo mismo un tema que se lleve a cabo con un simple libro de texto, que un teme que se desarrolle con materiales diversos, que el niño pueda contrastarlos con la realidad, etc. De esta forma el aprendizaje será más dinámico y el niño adquirirá los conocimientos igualmente, pero lo hará activamente, con más ganas y de un forma que le gusta y que le hace sentir importantes.
    Podemos decir por tanto que, el cómo enseñar, es una de las piezas claves en la que se van a basar los resultados que obtengamos del proceso educativo, por lo que los criterios fundamentes, que se desarrollan a lo largo de este artículo, deberían de tenerse en cuenta a la hora de elaborar y tomar postura ante las actividades y los materiales que se van a utilizar para el desarrollo de los contenidos que se vayan a impartir.

    En mi opinión, pienso que un docente tiene que tener un buen currículo de actividades, para así poder preparar con excelencia a los alumnos, debe ser creador y dinámico a la hora de llevar a cabo estas actividades.
    La enseñanaza y el apredndizaje de un alumno debe tener una organización, planificación y coordinación para que esta sea eficaz. Además tiene que tener un principio bien elaborado, pero no tiene final ya que una persona puede ir aprendiendo durante toda su vida, sin tener un límite.
    Aunque cada profesor tiene una manera de enseñar diferente como aquel que dice ” cada maestrito tiene su librito”, debe de seguir las actividades planteadas en el currículum docente, ya que son obligatorias que estos alumnos adquieran este conocimiento necesario en la etapa escolar correspondiente a su periodo de aprendizaje.

  56. Alexandra Mc Gurran dice: Responder

    Some suggest that ‘those who can’t do teach’. I believe the opposite as the role of an educator is complex and challenging therefore the learning materials a teacher is provided with to teach are an essential tool. After all would you expect a mechanic to repair a car if he did not have his tool box?

    Even though I feel an educators material is important I cannot stress enough how important it is that the teacher uses it correctly. The material is there to support the role of the teacher; it is not there to do the job. Thus I feel a teacher’s personality and enthusiasm for the job needs to also be present to grasp students attention, along with clarifying and giving extra help when necessary.

  57. The role of a teacher or educator is a very interesting and difficult role which is often very challenging so the use of learning materials is simply in a support role for the teacher. I firmly believe that for students to do well in exams, presentations…or life then the teacher must use his or her own personality as well as the text book, website, article to put a point across and make it memorable for the student. Take for example a religious studies teacher at my secondary school in Northern Ireland who was very outgoing, friendly, and approachable meaning if I had any difficulty understand the resources given, i.e. the RE text book and list of websites to learn information from I could easily approach her and gain clarification on anything I was unsure off. This variety of materials meant that i could be easily confused however with the assistance of the teacher help, and the answers were only ever a question away.

  58. I believe a teaching profession is very challenging. Teachers have a huge amount of responsibilities, these are not only in the classroom but at different levels. Teachers must read curriculums, use guidance from education boards, plan a yearly teaching plan, control large classes and much more. There is much more work that goes on in the background of an educational institution. One very memorable teacher I had at school had a brilliant idea, He would use the text book as a method of additional information, but mainly uses small cards with an easier and much more fun method of learning. Key words, pictures and fun facts always appeared on his cards. It made learning fun and enjoyable. He was able to connect with all of his students, he did read from the text book, but only when reinstating his individual points. Looking back on my former friends from school, almost everyone seems to have chosen further education. Deep down I truly believe he has had a big influence in all our life’s. This hard work and constant motivational learning methods incorporated, obviously have taken a serious amount of time and planning. I notice that in today’s teaching society there are a lot of teachers filled with important knowledge, however the most important part of teaching is the way in which classes are delivered. More teachers need to make learning fun, memorable and enjoyable.

  59. Use of materials in teaching can be identified best as the use of supporting elements which enrich the education and teaching setting. While informing the individual with relevant information, skills and attitudes, educators try to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of education through analyzing various aspects of learning-teaching process such as teaching programs, learning-teaching settings and teaching methods. Development of teaching programs as well as learning and teaching methods and increasing the efficiency of present technologies or material in terms of reaching their goals, have become the major objectives. From experience of working in a school, I believe that when materials are included in education programs, learning improves. In addition, when various materials are used during education, learning occurs more rapidly. Students prefer teaching methods benefiting from materials to traditional methods. During learning and teaching process, materials are generally used to support teaching. Well-designed teaching materials enrich the teaching process and facilitate learning. For example, when audio-visual materials are used in teaching, learning takes place in a quicker and more permanent manner. I think that the only way to motivate the students and ensure a relatively easier learning process, is to make use of materials addressing more than one sense organ. Overall, I think that materials are generally used to support teaching. Well-designed and structured teaching materials enrich the teaching process and increase the amount of learning.

  60. In my own opinion I think that learning materials are beneficial to have when teaching a lesson. I think this because learning materials provide variety, are helpful in attracting attention of the students and they can save time and energy for both the teacher and the students. Materials makes the abstract ideas concrete and thus help in making learning more effective. They provide good substitutes for the real objects as they make learning equally meaningful and they help in the development of various skills such as, how to draw a diagram of the topic among the students. Some examples include story books, blocks, videos, games, paper handouts, model clay, overhead projector transparencies etc. I think that extra educational materials make the lesson interesting rather than sticking to the one way of teaching for example reading from a textbook all the time. It adds variety to the lesson and it can make the lesson a lot more fun.

  61. I think that learning materials are important because they can significantly increase student achievement by supporting student learning. For example, a worksheet may provide a student with important opportunities to practice a new skill gained in class. This process aids in the learning process by allowing the student to explore the knowledge independently as well as providing repetition. Learning materials, regardless of what kind, all have some function in student learning. Teaching aids also engage students’ other senses since there are no limits in what aids can be utilized when supplementing a lesson.

    A perfect lesson is connected with and consist of many variables and in the first picture, it is mentioned perfectly. Make these all concepts perfect is almost impossible. Even if you are perfect as a teacher, students can be incapable, uninerested, you may not have necessary materials in school, environment may be inconvenient and etc. For our part, our responsibility is to minimize these negative components and to actualize our duties. Curriculum, materials, projects, works and etc, these are all can be arranged by ourselves. The criterias to develop materials that is given in the article are also very interesting and important. Variety, consistency, adaptability and etc. These are all basic steps in the way of a perfect education.

  63. Sandra Maloversnik dice: Responder

    A good lesson needs well prepared material as well as a motivated teacher, a teacher who knows how to use the material in order to motivate students to learn something new. And today we have so many possibilities to vary in the way we teach. A lesson can only be good if the teacher really prepared it well. We need to think about how we will use the material in the class and how the students could react or what their response could be. But what is more important is the teacher. A lesson can be perfectly planned, if the teacher isn`t motivated to teach the children something it won`t work out. So teachers have a really important role in the education of a child. But most teachers don`t figure that it is up to them if students want to learn something or if they are unmotivated.

    En este texto, creo que lo principal que hay que comentar es que como se ha visto textos anteriores el profesor es el que elige como dar la asignatura, pero la gran mayoría de estos, prefieren dar las clases de una manera teórica y olvidan que para enseñar también es muy importante la práctica y más aún en algunas asignaturas específicas, donde tengas que ver casos concretos para entenderlo mejor. Entiendo en cierto modo, que haya profesores que le encante dar su asignatura porque la vean muy importante e interesante pero también tienen que tener en cuenta al alumno y como este aprenderá mejor su asignatura.
    Para ser docente, hay que tener vocación y si una persona lo tiene, creo que lo que le importara es que el alumno aprenda y como se dice cotidianamente más vale calidad que cantidad.

    En mi opinión son fundamentales tanto unos buenos materiales educativos, como las estrategias de enseñanza de los docentes. En la actualidad se cuenta con muchos recursos didácticos, materiales, etc, pero eso si hay que utilizarlo adecuadamente, porque de otra manera no servirán de mucho.
    Por otra parte, los materiales curriculares se desarrollan dentro del aula, pero en algunos aspectos se debería de reciclar para motivar a los alumnos en su aprendizaje, que los docentes dejen aparte un poco los libros de texto y buscar otro tipo de estrategias para el desarrollo de las clases, porque no es solo los libros los que enseña, hay actividades en la que hace participar a los alumnos, y de esta forma también aprende. Pero todo esto tiene que ser coherente con el proyecto curricular y estar relacionas con las expectativas que se tiene.

    El material curricular es un elemento que no debe faltar en el planteamiento de una clase de cualquier maestro o profesor, eso sí, deben ser coherentes con el proyecto curricular escolar y con contenidos objetivos del mismo. Este ayuda, tanto al profesor a explicar, como a los alumnos a comprender. No basta con ceñirse a la pura teoría y lectura de los libros de texto, sino que es de gran ayuda un material complementario que haga más fácil la comprensión. Estas actividades deben utilizarse para explotar lo mejor de cada alumno. Además este tipo de material permite la relación con otros alumnos y la adquisición de otros valores y experiencias. Por lo que yo apoyo la existencia de este material curricular y su innovación continua.

    Hoy en día, un buen diseño de actividades y materiales educativos es algo muy valioso e importante, ya que gracias a dichas actividades y materiales el profesor podrá enseñar a sus alumnos de una manera más productiva y eficaz. Actualmente, tenemos una diversidad de materiales educativos mayor que hace unos años. Antes, el profesor solo contaba con una pizarra y unos libros, hoy en día los profesores cuentan con muchos mas materiales, como por ejemplo con pizarras electrónicas, materiales electrónico, ordenadores para todos los alumnos y muchos materiales mas. En mi opinión, creo que un buen diseño de actividades y materiales educativo no sería eficaz sin un buen profesor que los llevase acabo, ya que el profesor es el que tiene que innovar y poner ímpetu en todas las actividades que haga con su alumnado.

    Hoy en día, bajo mi punto de vista, no es suficiente con “enseñar” un temario a un grupo de alumnos, en mi opinión esto sucede día a día y cada vez más. La gran mayoria de los profesores utilizan coletillas como: ” A mi me dicen que os enseñe esto y yo hago lo que me dicen”, pero, ¿por qué llevar a cabo una educación de este modo?, ¿perdida de la vocación quuizas?,no lo sabemos.
    Estoy muy de acuerdo en que el profesorado ante todo tiene que tener conciencia de qué clase de alumnos tiene para poder transmitirles todo lo aprendido hasta hoy, y con esto me refiero a que debe saber qué conocimientos tienen sus alumnos para poder sacarle todo el partido posible a su enseñanza.

    La importancia de la metodología y el diseño de actividades es importante para aumentar el interés del alumno, cuanto más material educativo se utilice y mayor sea la programación de actividades, el método se perfecciona.

    En primer lugar, el artículo refleja la importancia de que un educador se planifique bien su trabajo, su actividad en el aula. A la hora de que un profesor se planifique su trabajo en el aula, y los recursos materiales para llevar a cabo el aprendizaje, deben tener en cuenta que esta planificación debe tener el objetivo de que el aprendizaje sea significativo en los alumnos, y en esto también influyen los materiales escolares que se utilice. Por eso lo dichos materiales tienen que ir innovando y ser materiales que capten la atención de ellos y se les haga la clase más amenas. Esto hace que el diseño de actividades y materiales educativos tengan un papel importante en la enseñanza. Además el docente no puede bastarle sólo con su formación como educador, sino que tiene que seguir formándose, y atender a las necesidades de los alumnos con los que trate.

  71. IXONE GOMEZ RAMIREZ dice: Responder

    Hoy en día la innovación es poder, y en este aspecto la educación también tiene que ser participe. Ya no es suficiente con dar el tema leyendo un texto ya sea de manera tradicional o con un power point, para esto está el material curricular. Debe ser un apoyo para el profesor y a la vez una motivación para el alumno.
    Hay que tener en cuenta que tanto el docente como el educando pasan muchas horas al día entre clases, por esta razón es importante innovar y reciclarse usando los materiales curriculares para no caer en la rutina y hacer de la clase y la asignatura una tortura.
    Pero como todo aquello que se realiza en el aula debe tener cierto rigor y valerse de una evaluación constante para tratar de lograr los fines deseados en los alumnos.

  72. Estoy totalmente de acuerdo con la idea que tiene la pedagogía moderna sobre como deben ser las actividades. Las actividades deben ser coherentes tanto con el currículo escolar como con el currículo oculto. Esta muy bien realizar actividades de lengua, de matemáticas, geografía… pero, ¿quién querrá tener,por ejemplo, a un dependiente que no trate con respeto a los clientes? Los materiales educativos así como las actividades deben ser diseñadas para sacar lo máximo de cada persona, tanto a nivel escolar como moral. Podemos mandar una actividad destinada a realizarse de manera individual teniendo como objetivo simplemente la realización de la misma, o podemos mandar una actividad en la que además del contenido, se evalúe la ayuda al compañero, el trabajo en equipo, la relación entre compañeros…

  73. Marta Madrigal Lebrato dice: Responder

    Como ya se ha dicho anteriormente, cada profesor tiene su propia manera de enseñar, pero aun así, no puede estar al margen de lo establecido, por tanto las actividades educativas que lleve a cabo con sus alumnos, deben ser coherentes con el proyecto curricular escolar y con contenidos y objetivos del mismo.
    Las actividades, son algo esencial que no puede faltar en ninguna de las etapas educativas, ya que, entre otras cosas, son altamente útiles para que se produzca el aprendizaje. Pero el hecho de que se lleven a cabo actividades como medio de enseñanza escolar, no depende solo de la proposición y planificación de la misma por parte del profesor, sino que también depende de los materiales y recursos de los que se disponga, principalmente en los centros educativos.
    Actualmente, ha disminuido en gran medida las actividades en los centros educativos, puesto que los recortes en educación han hecho que los centros dispongan de menos material y presupuesto para el desarrollo de las mismas.

Deben de adecuarse a sus alumnos, hacer unas clases dinámicas,seleccionar un determinado modelo de intervención, el diseño de actividades, deben decidir acerca de las variables organizativas espacio-temporales (el espacio que ocupará y qué tiempo van a dedicar a la actividad,

    Para realizar una enseñanza significativa en los niños, adolescentes, jóvenes… es necesaria una buena planificación y elaboración de actividades y materiales educativos. Esto ayudará a las personas a recordar lo aprendido a largo plazo o por el contrario, si no se ha enseñado bien, el aprendizaje le durará por muy corto plazo.

    Los materiales curriculares son recursos de distinto tipo que se emplean para facilitar el proceso de aprendizaje. Pueden ser libros de texto, vídeos, actividades… Todo esto ayuda para facilitar la comprensión de la temática enseñada.

    Para diseñar unas actividades o elegir el material educativo, el docente debe plantearse primero unos objetivos de aprendizaje, debe conocer las necesidades de los alumnos y los procesos mentales que quieren fortalecer y el medio social en que se utilizan.

    Por lo tanto, la metodología que se va a aplicar debe ser elaborada con anterioridad y bien planificada para provocar una comprensión adecuada y un aprendizaje exacto sobre las cosas, y a la hora de la evaluación tener unos resultados positivos.

  76. LAURA MARIA ARASANZ CORONIL dice: Responder

    Pienso que la metodologia del profesor es muy importante a la hora de impartir y llegar al alumnado. Por lo tanto los recursos materiales que utilice y su forma de impartirlas tiene que ser desde un punto de vista que les llegue al alumno.
    Bajo mi punto de vista el profesor tiene que estar preparado no solo para estar delante de los alumnos en las aulas sino también saber llegar a ello mediante un trato cordial y hacer con ello que al alumno le llegue lo que le está enseñando.

  77. María José Valverde Bermejo dice: Responder

    Desde mi punto de vista, creo que las actividades que se realizan para que el alumnado asimile los conceptos cobran mucha importancia. El profesor diseña su propio trabajo y además las actividades que le hará más fácil el aprendizaje al alumno. Pienso que deben ser tareas que vinculen al alumno con la información y el contenido a tratar, y además para que el proceso de enseñanza y aprendizaje sea más fácil y fructífero se necesitan herramientas que les interesen y que haga que lo que aprenden a través de ellas no se les olvide.
    Por todo esto, es muy importante el uso que cada docente le otorgue a sus recursos, pudiendo ser dinámicos y que consigan no distraer la atención de quien recibe la enseñanza, en la medida que sea posible.
    Para esto, no sólo es suficiente la buena preparación del profesor, si no también actitud positiva y ganas a lo que se le debe sumar la atención y el interés del alumno.

    Pienso que en la actualidad el uso de materiales curriculares tradicionales como los libros son necesarios pero deben estar relacionado con otros materiales propios de la actualidad en la que vivimos como pueden ser ordenadores o pizarras electrónicas que provoquen motivación en el alumno ya que rompe con la cotidiano de un libro de texto.

    Los docentes deben de estar formados, pero no pueden conformarse con eso, tiene que ir ampliando sus conocimientos y adaptándose a los nuevos cambios y expectativas que se plantean según la época en la que estemos. Los profesores de hoy en día cuentan con más materiales educativos que los de antes. Con estos materiales los profesores deberían conseguir hacer las clases más amenas y dinámicas, para que los niños no se sientan aburridos y pierdan el interés por aprender. Para que esto último se consiga creo que sería bueno que los docentes llevasen preparadas sus clases, aunque tenga que modificarlo según las circunstancias que se den en ese momento. En mi opinión un docente que elabora actividades dinámicas y llamativas conforme a sus alumnos, mejora la atención y la adquisición de conocimiento de estos mismos.

  81. Ana María Volante Márquez dice: Responder

    En mi opinión, un docente debe tener una buena base formativa, pero no sólo eso; sino que es de vital importancia, que para enseñar al alumnado sea creativo, innovador, dinámico, etc. Esto es importante, ya que hace que el alumnado se motive, y así ponga mas ganas a la hora de aprender; por lo tanto le será más fácil captar la información.
    También es muy significativo, que el profesorado vaya a clase con la misma preparada; ya que es muy importante planear más o menos cuanto puede durar una actividad o dinámica que traiga el profesor para realizarla en el aula. Y por supuesto, que haga partícipes al alumnado durante la clase, para que así les sea menos aburrida.
    Actualmente, en las aulas vemos muchos ordenadores, proyectores, pantallas, etc., para mi eso no es importante ya que si el profesor no hace un buen uso de los mismo no sirve para nada.

    El diseño de actividades y materiales educativos cobran un papel muy importrante a la hora de impartir la enseñanza, ya que hay que preparar la actividad de los alumnos según las necesidades de estos, de manera que sean innovadoras y aparezca más dinamismo pero a la misma vez relacionen los contenidos y los objetivos a conseguir. Los materiales educativos son la base fundamental para desarrollar la enseñanza, ya que son los materiales que se utilizan para impartirla, pero me parece erróneo que hasta esto tenga un fin económico detrás. Unas pocas editoriales son las que se benefician, siendos estos materiales comercializados y se dejan al margen a profesores anónimos con muchas experiencias en cuanto a diseño de materiales que tienen mayor conocimiento.

    Sin duda, como la manera de enseñar es importante, como ya se mencionó anteriormente. Pero no solo la manera de cómo enseñar sino también saber seleccionar las prioridades principalmente para poder educar con éxito sin acabar en el fracaso escolar. Creatividad, innovación e implicación por parte del maestro hacia sus alumnos a través de los herramientas existentes como los libros de texto son necesarios para que el profesor consiga su objetivo. Hay que tener en cuenta que los valores éticos son importantes, que cada alumno es diferente y que tantos las tecnologías como las personas evolucionan a lo largo del tiempo, teniendo que estar siempre preparado para adaptar estos métodos de enseñanza según como se precise, actualizándose.
    No se puede olvidar el papel de los padres para que la labor del profesor consiga su objetivo, teniendo estos que implicarse con ellos para poder así conocer el mejor camino de aprendizaje de sus hijos.

    Opino, como he dicho en comentarios anteriores, que el profesor es el encargado de diseñar las estrategias y debe ser el responsable de orientar dichas actividades al temario establecido. Opino que existen cantidades de dinámicas y estrategias que llevadas a la práctica con el alumnado pueden ser muy productivas y eficaces y además nos olvidamos también un poco de ese sistema de estar sentado en una silla, levantar la mano si quieres decir algo, y escuchar al profesor horas y horas, este sistema es utilizado aún por muchos profesores y en mi opinión resulta bastante monótono y desmotivador para el alumno y alumna escuchar y escuchar y no ponerse en la situación real de la teoría que nos estan explicando.

  85. María Tirado Recio dice: Responder

    Todo docente debería planificar y estructurar sus actividades hacia los educandos ya que éstos solo mostrarán interés y además aprenderán, si dichas actividades les llama la atención, ya sea con materiales u otras cosas.
    Si ya los contenidos resultan aburridos y a esto le sumas que el profesorado o el educador no muestra ese entusiasmo para que los alumnos muestren interés en sus explicaciones y demás, esto conlleva al fracaso escolar. Por este motivo todo docente debe diseñar actividades para los alumnos en sus intervenciones y estas actividades tienen que estar interrelacionadas con las preocupaciones o motivaciones de los que reciben estas intervenciones o educación.

  86. Ana Cordón Masero dice: Responder

    El principal problema del fracaso escolar de los alumnos, es entre otros el poco interés que muestran por las asignaturas, el temario, y los profesores. Siendo mas concreta y sincera el fracaso escolar es debido al mal planteamiento del sistema educativo en este país. Las clases deberían de ser más llamativas tanto para profesores como para alumnos ya que algunos profesores se aburren impartiendo clases, y esto afecta a los alumnos. Hacer que los estudiantes se sientan atraídos por los estudios es un reto que el sistema educativo debe superar. Existen varias formas de hacer esto como inculcar desde pequeño la enseñanza como entretenimiento y no como educación, no fomentando la competitividad entre los alumnos, no etiquetando a los niños según su nivel, sino ayudarle para que tenga el mismo que todos.

    Para mí no solo basta un buena preparación del docente respecto a teoría se refiere, si no también tiene que tener unas características necesarias para poder enseñar a los alumnos, sobre todo ilusión y ganas. Ya no solo basta con la clase que da el profesor en la escuela si no que el alumno debe seguir su tarea en casa, donde los padres se vean influenciados, ayudándolos a trabajar. La finalidad de la enseñanza es que los alumnos lleguen a comprender y entender la teoría que le están explicando, para que en un futuro pueda servirle de algo y no solo estudiarselo de memoria para poder sacar un sobresaliente en un examen y cuando salga no se acuerde de nada. Por último, decir que la teoría es muy importante para el aprendizaje pero no lo es todo, las clases se deben impartir con un poco más de dinámica.

  88. Irene Torres Domínguez dice: Responder

    Pienso que es muy importante llegar a clase con un diseño de actividades y materiales educativos que ayuden al aprendizaje y más aun que se utilizan estrategias de manera dinámica para aprender sin olvidar, motivando al alumnado.
    También estoy de acuerdo con que hay temario que hay que dar de manera teórica, pero en las asignaturas pesadas creo que es más positivo aprender de manera que no se olvide, porque por ejemplo sociales y naturales la mayoría de los alumnos la estudiamos de memoria y al cabo de los días no nos acordamos de nada, de la otra manera alomejor no se nos olvidaría.
    Por último decir que hay profesores que llegan a clases sin ánimos, impartiendo su clase sin tener una relación profesor-alumno por lo que eso se transmite y muchos alumnos se aburren de sus clases, llegando a no estudiar su asignatura (no aprendido de ella) y suspender pero ¿la culpa es realmente de los estudiantes? o es ¿de la forma del profesor de impartir sus clases?
    Conforme pasan mis años académicos pienso que los profesores que llegan a sus clases con una sonrisa y se relacionan con sus alumnos, esos profesores se quedan marcados en la vida del estudiante siempre recordándolo como un profesor que ama lo que hace.

  89. MARIA VALENZUELA MORALES dice: Responder

    En mi opinión, la influencia que tengan las actividades y los materiales que utilicen los niños en el aula les hará recordar lo aprendido o olvidarlo con el tiempo, por ello, creo que es fundamental la planificación que hagan los docentes de las actividades escolares tanto dentro como fuera del aula, ya que una buena planificación repercutirá más positivamente en los niños y dejara una huella imborrable.
    Además, creo que los materiales que se utilizan en el aula pueden desarrollar mucho sus capacidades, por ejemplo, los niños que están acostumbrados a trabajar con pizarras táctiles u ordenadores, para la búsqueda autónoma de información o para el manejo de programas informativos.
    Por último, decir que los docentes son los encargados de la planificación de estas actividades y de los medios y materiales con los que las realizaran, por lo que es fundamental que lo hagan con esmero y dedicación.

  90. Elena Romero Mancebo dice: Responder

    Personalmente, un buen maestro para mí, es el que transmite de manera clara lo que se pretende enseñar y hacer llegar a sus alumnos ese contenido motivándoles y haciéndoles participar en clase mediante dinámicas ya sean en grupo o individuales y que le intente sacar todo el potencial que lleva dentro para así poder llegar a usarlo en el futuro ya sea como profesional o en su vida personal.
    Por lo que creo que los docentes deberían preparase muy bien antes de impartir sus clases y que utilicen los materiales curriculares de la manera que crean más eficaz para conseguir sus propósitos.

  91. Nazaret Mª Mota Estrada dice: Responder

    Pienso y estoy a favor de que a los niños se les enseñe contenido teórico. La cuestión de enseñar no es la cantidad sino la calidad. Existen numerosas asignaturas que no tienen porque impartirse de forma tan teórica. por ejemplo, naturales, si por ejemplo un docente tiene que enseñar las partes de una planta puede perfectamente coger flores de verdad, así ellos ven la planta y seguro que no se les olvida.
    También una forma acertada de enseñar algo es los videos, las imágenes, los juegos…
    Muchos profesores no piensan o no les conviene pensar en la motivación de los niños, puesto que es muy cómodo ponerte a explicar sentado en una silla y mandar a los alumnos a copiar, leer… Este tipo de docente debería dejarle el puesto a otro que si le guste enseñar, que para el, aunque le lleve mas tiempo, sea importante que sus alumnos aprendan a la vez que se divierten.

  92. Silvia Cerrajero Barranca dice: Responder

    Todo profesorado debe seguir su propia estrategia de enseñanza. Yo soy participe que en la clase hagan dinámicas, que si que la teoría es fundamental y muchos profesores se pueden tirar horas y horas hablando sintiéndose orgullosos de toda su sabiduría sin darse cuenta que eso a los niños les aburre. Los niños necesitan motivación para que de esta manera tengan ilusión por ir al cole, aprendiendo pero a la misma vez divirtiéndose, una estrategia que desde mi punto de vista es ejemplar para la enseñanza de los niños porque algo que a ellos les divierte muestran el triple de atención, por lo que a la misma vez que se están divirtiendo están aprendiendo.

    En las manos de todos aquellos que son responsables del buen curso de la clase, está el progreso de esta misma. ¿Deben de cumplir unos requisitos mínimos más allá de la carrera y las oposiciones? En mi opinión, aquellas personas que se encargan de la educación de todos los que están empezando a formarse, tanto por dentro como por fuera, debería de cumplir unos requisitos más allá de la titulación necesaria, como deberían de ser: tener una sensibilidad, dureza, talante, saber estar, entre muchos otros adecuado, adecuado para que los niños que les van a escuchar seis horas diarios cinco días a la semana, les vean como unos ejemplos a seguir, no como personas a las que odiar por el simple hecho de dejarles sin recreo o suspenderles un examen.

  94. Juan Celedonio Pérez Páez dice: Responder

    Es cierto que la necesidad de diseñar una actividad coherente a los propósitos educativos, alrededor de unos medios o materiales funcionales es lo ideal, dentro de cualquier modo educativo Pero resaltar el epígrafe del texto que hace referencia a la profesionalidad del docente según la unión y coherencia anteriormente comentada. El problema es que un porcentaje por debajo de lo deseado se compromete y lleva acabo dicha profesionalidad. Muchos se contentan con diseños y medios ya establecidos y muy utilizados (no dudo de su funcionalidad), pero no intenta ir un paso más allá, investigar en nuevos diseños más pragmáticos junto a materiales curriculares muchos más atractivos para el educando.

  95. Respecto a mi opinión cuando se habla de que somos conscientes de que solo no vale con la preparación del docente para la intervención educativa, sino que es preciso también preparar la actividad del alumno, creo que la comunidad educativa si será consecuente de ello, pero no es una realidad que se pone siempre en práctica, en muchas ocasiones simplemente se imparte los conocimientos de tal forma que los educandos los asimilan de manera mecánica, olvidando sus preocupaciones, inquietudes, intereses y por lo tanto imposibilitando la adquisión de nuevos conocimientos.
    En cuanto a los materiales escolares, son indispensables para que junto con la metodología llevada a cabo por el docente sirva como complemento para facilitar el proceso de aprendizaje, constituyendo una fuente motivadora para el alumnado, haciendo más dinámicas y participativas las intervenciones en las aulas, pero siempre debe mantener una coherencia con el resto de elementos curriculares, es decir, entre los objetivos, contenidos, metodología y evaluación de la enseñanza-aprendizaje.

    Conforme voy leyendo los artículos, me doy cuenta que aparte de que todos tienen su relación, parece que están organizados por contenidos por orden de comprensión, para ir entendiendo y comprendiendo los artículos que vas a posterior.
    Con respecto a este tema sobre el diseño de las actividades y utilización de recursos adecuados para la realización de las misma, pienso que al igual que las estrategias y los métodos educativos que se utilizan, son puntos muy importantes que se ha de tener en cuenta, ¿porqué?, es la base principal para que las actividades se desarrolle con éxito siguiendo los objetivos que se han propuesto con dichas actividades. Los recursos son importante para poder tener un amplio abanico de posibilidades al alumnado que presenten diferencias con los compañeros, para que existan alternativas mediante la presencia de diversidad de recursos y más hoy día con las nuevas tecnología. Todo ello, favorecera a la integración de los niños en las aulas y el profesorado debe detener en cuenta estos aspectos y los principios que se ha de seguir para que el proyecto se lleve a cabbo y cumpla con su finalidad.

  97. Teresa Gómez Pérez dice: Responder

    Pienso que es fundamental, tanto unos buenos materiales educativos, como las estrategias de enseñanzas y sin lugar a dudas una constante formacion e innovacion por parte del docente, que sienta vocacion por su profesion. Pues todos los recurso y medios didacticos que se usen y ayuden en el aprendizaje y en la enseñanza son buenos. Pero si no se emplean adecuadamente, no serviran de nada, como dice el texto, por si solos no hacen magia.
    Solos no motivaran a los alumnos ni transmitiran valores. En muchas ocasiones llega más a los alumnos una idea, por parte de los profesores, una vivencia o una explicacion sencilla comparada con algo de la vida real o cualquier actividad realizada en clase, que este relacionada con el contenido teorico, que el mejor libro de texto con un temario largísimo y extenso, que aburre a los estudiantes. Por tanto considero fundamental la participacion por parte de los alumnos y del profesor, para poder conseguir una clase dinamica y viva.

  98. Débora Barranco Ríos dice: Responder

    La mayoría de los profesores principalmente se dedican a llegar a clase impartirla de la forma más sencilla para ellos, mandar la tarea para que los alumnos tengan que trabajar su asignatura en casa e irse para casa. ¿No nos damos cuenta que esto es un grave problema?, las repuestas ante esos profesores son alumnos aburridos de su materia en la cual no quieren dedicar tiempo, principalmente hacen la tarea que le han mandado y días antes del examen memorizan toda la teoría para sacar un aprobado o buena nota.
    Ante este problema, lo que deberían ser diferente tendría que ser los profesores cambiando sus clases como por ejemplo con otras estrategias, actividades, didáctica… De manera que el alumno vería a la escuela como un lugar en el que se aprende de forma fácil y divertida, a esto se le añadiría que seguramente disminuiría los fracasos escolares y los profesores se sentirían mucho más orgullos al ver como sus alumnos se forman.

  99. María Álvarez Espada dice: Responder

    El cómo utilizar y diseñar las actividades es muy importante en un educador, ya que según como se planifique los alumnos están más motivados y participativos.
    Estos materiales educativos son la base y guía para la tarea docente ya que el profesor no porque se haya sacado la carrera está todo hecho, sino que, él debe de seguir preparándose, formándose y cada día llevar preparada sus clases y no siempre las mismas actividades, debe de alternar con diferentes actividades y así las clases serán más amenas.
    Para finalizar quisiera decir que los niños de hoy en día se aburren con lo tradicional, es un dato que deberían de tener en cuenta los docentes.

    Como comenté en un texto anterior “diseño y desarrollo del currículum escolar” estoy totalmente de acuerdo con el diseño del currículum porque en mi opinión es muy útil para que el profesor pueda seguir una guía de los temas que tiene que explicar a los alumnos. Pero está claro que existen también actividades y materiales educativos que ayudan mucho a la hora de trabajar.
    Por ejemplo, realizar actividades prácticas relacionadas con el temario para que los alumnos no se aburran y pongan en práctica los conocimientos adquiridos. También utilizar presentaciones de diapositivas con el temario, que es algo que suele usarse en la universidad pero por ejemplo en colegios e institutos no, al menos en mi caso los profesores que he tenido siempre se han guiado de libros. Y por otro lado, hacer uso de los ordenadores para así también aprender y mejorar la búsqueda en internet, ya que en algunos centros educativos se disponen de equipos informáticos que a penas suelen usarse. Estas son algunas de las muchas cosas que pueden realizarse para enseñar en las aulas de una forma más entretenida y creativa.

  101. Ana Terrada Abril dice: Responder

    Estoy totalmente de acuerdo en que el medio no es lo primordial, sino más bien el uso que se haga de éste.
    Añadiría al texto, algo más respecto a las actividades escolares, no solo éstas deben estar actualizadas, ya que si la enseñanza es tradicional, puede dar lugar a conocimientos atrasados o imcompletos, también deben ir clasificadas según nivel de importancia, si una actividad es primordial, considero que debe ir por delante de otras que quizás hacen fución de complementariedad sin más. Conservando un orden estructurado y lógico, la educación también lo será.

  102. CINTIA LOBATO ANILLO dice: Responder

    Debemos de tener bastante claro que el docente no solo es formado para su profesión, sino que este también debe de seguir formándose durante su periodo como tal, es decir, debe de desarrollar una serie de actividades para los alumnos que con la experiencia sino van bien éstas deben de cambiarse. Estas actividades deben capacitar al alumno para cumplir sus objetivos.
    Es cierto que para aprender es necesario obtener una serie de recursos que ayuden a realizar estas actividades. Estos recursos materiales hacen que el docente pueda llevar una clase entretenida para los niños, tener relación con ellos…
    Y por último es totalmente cierto que si los profesores no se implican con todo lo anterior no habrá un aprendizaje beneficioso para ninguna parte tanto del alumno como del profesor que no lleva a cabo un buen trabajo.

  103. Cristina Hernández Valiente dice: Responder

    En mi opinión un profesor debe utilizar unas buenas actividades, donde además de enseñar, motiven al alumno a seguir aprendiendo. Sobre todo si hablamos de la educación escolar, se necesita de unas actividades innovadoras y motivadoras, ya que el niño no entiende por que lo separan de su familia y le obligan a escribir veinte veces la a. Para ello el profesorado debe estar preparado, y saber diversas actividades, contando con más o menos recursos, pues no en todos las escuelas cuentan con el mismo material curricular, por ello hay que saber adaptar los recursos a actividades, e incluso fomentar el aprendizaje grupal, mediante juegos y actividades donde potencien su imaginación y su creatividad.

  104. Macarena López Ruiz dice: Responder

    Cada profesor/a tiene su metodología de enseñanza para su alumnado, en mi opinión cada uno de ellos debe buscar dentro de su metodología la intención de motivar al alumno/a a la materia que se está dando, que el alumno/a sea receptivo a esa materia y participe haciendo las clases más amenas y activas, con esto los alumnos/as hace más esfuerzo por aprender aunque sea inconscientemente ya que sólo con la participación y el interés están aprendiendo. Da igual la forma como se realice, con la ayuda de materiales extras, charlas, diapositivas,… la cuestión es despertar al alumno/a para hacer las clases dinámicas y estos no se aburran y así no se den por vencido.

  105. Antonio Cosmo Narváez dice: Responder

    Las clases se hacen aburridas, y muy pesadas, los decentes la mayoría no son dinámicos ni alternativos, simplemente llegan a clase, imparten sus temario,mandan actividades y se van para casa. Esto es un grave problema, de esta manera los alumnos repelen y se cansan antes de los estudios, lo ven como una obligación y una forma aburrida de perder el tiempo. Se puede enseñar la misma teoría pero llevada a la práctica, saliendo de clase interaccionando con la naturaleza, visitando ciertos lugares relacionado con el contenido…Si los alumnos se encuentran a gusto con lo que hacen, la información que reciben le será de mayor beneficio, incluso tendrán entusiasmo en seguir desarrollándolas ya que les parecen divertida. Con esto no digo ni mucho menos que haya de dejar de lado a la teoría, pero si darle otro enfoque diferente a la hora de desarrollar las clase. De esta manera el profesor se sentirá orgulloso de ver que los alumnos aprenden y se divierten al mismo tiempo, y los alumnos no verán las escuela como algo de que huir.

    Este tema la verdad que me lo he cuestionado siempre , y sobre todo cuando nos dejaron un trimestre entero de 2º de primaria haciendo una corbata con lunares de colores, me acordaré siempre..y piensa ¿ Verdaderamente no hay otras estrategias y actividades para enseñar un concepto? una unidad didáctica? Claro que las abra y mas hoy día donde tenemos una fuente de recursos mundial como puede ser Internet. pero aquí entre el papel del profesor, del colegio etc..
    de la innovación que tenga cada profesor en realizar una actividad u otra de una forma u otra, mas pragmática o mas teórica.

  107. ARÁNZAZU RASCO POLEO dice: Responder

    En mi opinión son muchas las actividades que son propuestas por los profesores, para hacer las clases más dinámicas y obtengan la atención de los niños. A lo largo de mi educación me he encontrado con una gran diversidad de docentes, que realizaban diversas actividades para la enseñanza educativa, el problema es que muchas veces no sabía cuál era el objetivo de la actividad. Entonces ¿De que me sirve hacer variadas actividades si no se cual es el objetivo de la misma? Respecto al material educativo, pienso que es una buena herramienta para trabajar y poder contar con ella siempre que sea necesario, sin embargo, están constantemente cambiando los libros de textos y es un dinero que algunas personas no pueden permitirse. No entiendo porque cambiar un libro de por ejemplo “historia” constantemente, si lo que ha sucedido va a ser igual hoy y mañana. La verdad es que lo veo un gasto innecesario. Además pienso cuantos cuadernillos me he comprado, como por ejemplo “inglés” y ahora abro las páginas y más de la mitad se encuentran vacías. ¿Para qué hacernos gastar un dinero en comprar libros de textos si después no lo vamos a utilizar?

    To education took place in an appropriate way the need is proper implementation of educational programs. This program is based on many of aspects that should be taken into account every teacher. Education is interesting when we introduce something that interested the students, each teacher can implement the program through play or appropriate educational games. Thanks to the science itself is not so boring. Students are motivated for the teacher. Knowing your students should adapt appropriate forms of teaching not forgetting the general curriculum. This is not an easy task, but every teacher should enter the active forms of learning in their school.

  109. Maria Betekhtina dice: Responder

    Development of materials is an important part of teaching. After all, the understanding and knowledge of the student depends on clarity of your material’s explaination. It’s important to configure the program according to the sphere in which learning takes place. It’s necessary to cooperate with students in the preparation of programs to develop the most suitable methods of teaching. Using actual scientific materials will also improve the performance of knowledge and awareness of students. And it’s necessary to adopt successful techniques from other educational institutions and gradually improve them to have the best result in education.

  110. A good teacher encourages her students to be developed in all areas and is supportive in all aspects. Attributes of a good teacher include strong leadership skills, patience, compassion, and understanding. As my previous experience has proved that a good teacher will also take time aside to focus on children who need extra assistance, which will in turn ensure the overall success of the student as they progress. A teacher with high level of competence is also very important as pride and confidence allow for further progression in the classroom. As evidence has shown the successful teacher is a prepared teacher. This also means having had previous instruction in the psychology and philosophy of learning as well as strong personal attributes are the most important. I personally very much appreciate teacher’s ability to get along with others which is now called Emotional Intelligence. In all countries teaching positions require professional skills. In addition to being knowledgeable about the subjects they teach, preschool teachers must have the ability to inspire trust and confidence, always communicate with their students. Their activities demand a significant effort. Teachers in high schools also have to build their coursework around creative and critical thinking, which might be around decision making and problem solving.

  111. Danielle Murphy dice: Responder

    I think a teacher’s job is very difficult. They have a lot of responsibilities, even down to choosing the wright textbook for a class or a beneficial activity for the class to do. I had a teacher in Ireland who made her own textbook and it was all put into simple English with buzz words and acronyms, this helped almost all of the class to connect and communicate with the teacher as she cut out a huge part of the useless information that was not needed. All of the students that she thought got top grades. The teacher made the subject her own and it was fun and exciting to learn from her. Throughout my education I noticed many teachers to be extremely knowledgeable, but they cannot transfer their knowledge effectively to their students. Much of this had to do with presentation and materials used.

  112. Fedora Morozová dice: Responder

    The best way to not lose the pupil’s attention is to be innovative and creative. If the situation allows it, teacher should try with children all the possible ways of study. That is why it should be also included to the curriculum. I suggest – except of usual classes make also the discussion in classes – what each student think about certain topic and team-works with presentation, actual thinking about theoretical problems, which help to students better understand the problematic and deepen their critical thinking. I also think that instead of boring homeworks would be better something which attracts children’s mind, what about seeing a historic movie for the next history classes? If the teachers try to figure the curriculum more innovative, it will be benefiacial either for them and for students.

  113. Edvinas Leščinskas dice: Responder

    Teachers job is not just to teach but also to choose the resources and knowledge of other thinks. They have to know how to organize their classes and after class activities(homework). It is hard to choose the best way for teaching. Some prefer using projectors, other teachers prefer just talking and others like to write on the blackboard. I believe it would be also a good idea for them to just ask their students what they prefer. Curriculum should have a certain plan and a direction however it should also be flexible to adapt to other students needs as well. Teachers should also attend various seminars and deepen their knowledge in various fields. This way they would become better individuals and know more about their field. Teachers should try to make their students passionate about the subjects that they teach. Teaching is a process which involves both a teacher and a student and they both must be willing to become better.

  114. Katarzyna Grabska dice: Responder

    I think it is really hard to be a good teacher. But in fact..what does it really mean – good teacher?
    In my opinion it should be a person with a passion, really interesed in subject that she teaches, open-mined. Teacher should share the passion with his students, show them how interesting the world is, provide them with interest to explore the knowledge. Should motivate his pupils, or students, be a kind of friend. A man of principle but flexible, with sense of humor, and with respect to students. Should not treat himseld as someone better than students. Not only going through the material from the borring books. Good teacher also should develop himself for all the time, read about new things, new metodology, because the world moves on. It is important to be tuned with new things that come out, using new technology that could be so useful nowadays, and help to make classes more interesting.

  115. In order to begin to learn a student’s first lesson is the need to love and be interested in the topic. A student may become interested or have an innate interest in a specific area of course themselves. However, a teacher of a subject can change the opinion of the student, in a positive or negative way. Students can love a certain subject but the teacher’s teaching methods can be incompatible with the student. If that is the case the student becomes disengaged with the class and loses their passion for the topic. Therefore it is important to consider the student-teacher relationship for effective learning. For this we need a teacher who can think of different events that can be approached from a wider perspective has the ability to solve problems. It may be impossible to win over the whole class, but more interesting and communicative teaching could help increase motivation and interest for some students.

  116. Very much depends on the teacher’s approach to education, passion, dedication to the cause. It should above all apply your leads in practice, show it on your own examples, their own experiences of life. Teacher should have charisma at what he does best teaching methods, techniques, materials and guidance. His passion and knowledge should encourage children, students to work effectively, seeking the best. It is also important relationship with the student teacher. The relationship should be based on cooperation, respect and understanding. It is important that both parties feel the most comfortable and not afraid to express his own opinion.

  117. I agree with the article that using different methods and materials for teaching is very important. It’s hard to find a right approach which will be good for everyone because each individual is different and you can not find a way to always please all of them. That’s why I think it’s good that we use a variety of approaches so that in the end somehow we manage to capture all different tastes and please them all. That’s when teachers creativity comes in. Teachers have to be very open minded, good observers and listeners so that they get the idea which type of a person each student is- visual or auditory type and than adapt lessons to both groups. It should be in the interest of a teacher to organize classes that will be interesting and enjoyable for children to learn.

  118. I think a good teacher profile could be possible with good communication and quality communication .I always believe that to be good teacher is not possible to obey to rules in goverment and depermant of eduction system.Because every student has different algae and learning way is different for example some students can learn with book by reading but some students are learing by writting, also some students can learn very easy with visuality ect . So I think teachers can know that who can learn which kind of way for learning in class with communication .For example in Turkey a lot of students dont like mathematics because the teachers are starting to speech and they are teaching one of subject then they are solving problem and they dont ask anything to students so he or she doesnt know who can learn this lesson on this way .So I think they should ask to children how they want to learn and it is first step of learning I always believe that .

  119. Natalia Chernykh dice: Responder

    In the centre of the learning process should always be cognitive activity of students, without which the teacher is very difficult to convey to the students the skills and knowledge he has. Training material is pedagogically correct, suitable system of knowledge that the student has to master. But in my opinion the most important thing is how the teacher will bring this material to the students. Take one book and only work on is wrong. Material should be varied, and its teaching is interesting. The teacher should understand why he says some material and how to make the student not only to listen to but to be interested in it.

  120. What is it about to be a good teacher?
    It’s a very good question and not to easy to answer.
    In my opinion maybe the most important thing is to be able to empathize to the children, so you get if someones having problems, and how you can help him understand, regarding school topics but maybe also in social life. Also, you have some ‘leading skills’, so that the children respect you and don’t make fun of you, like Lukas told about his physics teacher. If you have those, it’s much more likely that pupils learn more compared to someone who just reads down his knowledge, even if he has great knowledge.

  121. I think that there are some materials, especially in primary school where i will have to work in the future, which are important for the learning-process of the students, these are for example learning games for all subjects and exercise books for practicing maths, grammar, and so forth. In my opinion it is not necessary to provide heaps of materials for the students, i think a better way to organize classes in which the students have time for free learning (where they can choose by themselves what and how they like to learn) is to provide lots of non-fiction books in which the students can find informations about varied topics. When students develop interest for a particular content, it is normally sufficient when informations are laid out, especially young children are often very creative when they are asked to visualize or to present their findings.

  122. I think that there is one general one thing which is important for a teacer for being a ‘good teacher’, which is; being able to motivate the pupils/students for learning – getting them motivated/enthousiastic.
Every pupil has a different way of learning, so does also have teachers a different way in teaching, which not means that if one teacher use a different method than a other teacher, that the one is better is teaching than the other. 
‘Motivate your pupil for learning’ includes in my opinion, using different types of methods and learningmaterials. 
For some pupils it works better to learn through the internet or by the Ipad, for others it might work better to learn by books, by reading. Or pupils learn better by doing it (constructivism), or learn better by visual learning (movies and so on). I think that knowing what kind of learningmaterial fits a pupil/student the best is being a good teacher. By giving every pupil the meterial and learningmethod with fits the pupil the best, is the best way of motivating in my opinion. It motivates a pupil more if he prefer visual learning when he learns on a visual way instead of reading books.

  123. I still think that the education is not that bad, atleased not for me, as shown in the blogs. On the schools i have been on, and the schools i have teached there always was lots of materials and a basics of the interest of the school. We have “art” schools “free” schools “theoretical schools” (all primary) and the parents choose wich school their child gos on. On all these schools there was a variety of material and activities like music, painting and other art stuff, but also to improve social behaviour for children with problems. I think we should look to othere to improve the classes we give. At an older age i stay witht the point that one is responsible for his own learning, we can not simply blame someone else for it. All the teachers i have met did their best with what they got, including a low salary and or budget for material and alot of working hours.

    Activities and materials are involved in the major parts of education. While they are so important, it is inevitable to make them accurate with some points. Firstly, every teacher has their own teaching style. It is obvious that they use the materials accordingly. If a teacher has communicative approach, he generally uses materials like computers, tapes to organize listening and speaking activities. Maybe he can use cards or games to provide some kind of interaction. If he has a task-based approach, he needs to give a real life task and the materials changes. Not totally, but we can see. He uses more realistic things. Every student has their learning style too. In this case, it is benefical for a teacher to know every single student well and choose the approaches therefore materials and activities accordingly. Evaluation is a very important part. So taking it into account may make things easier. Students get enthusiastic to see their improvements or rewards for their work. It is totally student-based I think. There are some students who can learn better in mechanical ways. For example, grammar books, exercises etc. They feel more confortable by seeing the structures. On the other hand, there are some who learn more actively. They want to speak and interact so that they can learn faster. The teacher should take these things into account in order to make them focus, because materials and activities are what makes a lesson, a lesson. At least for students. It is a good chance to make the lessons more interesting.

    I experienced by myself the importance of the right choice, well preparation and attractive presentation of your teaching method and material. Especially if you can`t profit from years of experience, the preparation is complex, you have to bear in mind a lot of things and it takes you a lot of time – but at the end the satisfaction of your work and the success of you lesson depends basically on a good preparation and adequate choice.
    Unfortunately I can`t remember a single time in my school time when any teacher ask us for our opinion of their classes. I think in every other profession it`s more than common to do a steady evaluation, in consideration of professional approaches but in school contexts not – maybe I`m wrong but I think a steady and standardized evaluation doesn`t exist in this way. I saw a lot of teachers who were using the same teaching materials over years – I think that`s just possible because they`re profiting from their civil servant status. It`s a shame because it`s obvious, the more satisfied both sides are, the more fun is it for pupils as well as for teachers to go to school every days.

    I think the problem today is that the teachers do not looking on the good of students. Often the teacher is his plan of action and do not care interests of children. This can be seen often on the example of physical education. The teacher must enter some sort of evaluation to the journal so doing test eg running on time. Do not look at it from the first these children need to learn run properly and very fast. Here comes me to mind the movie FREEDOM WRITERS (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0463998/). There teacher first saw the problem to the solution in the classroom and strive for its solution. I think this that everyone, who want to be teacher should watch this movie.

    Many teachers work according to the old scheme … They have own plan, and already before the start of the school year, lesson after lesson, knowledge of which will do … They have transmit content and at the ends of their work. I also met ithi type of teachers. These lessons always were boring. But the best remember teachers who learned from us what we’re craving. After the recognition – they also passed mandatory content but we did it in a nice way, legible and clearly arranged, easier. We know that the needs of childrens in a large class always can differ but you can always find an optimal solution. The teacher is a profession as a doctor -only people with vocation can stay teachers.

    First of all, it should be made clear there is no good or bad teacher for me. We can define teachers considering the ways of delivering the knowledge to students. As we know every students have different learning styles and different memory that’ why teachers are seen bad or good because their teaching styles don’t match with students or match. While deciding whether a teacher is good or not, we should take account into their relation with students and interest with subjects. To me, there are three points. Firstly, ‘the good teachers’ should answer the students’ needs no matter what other people say. Secondly, the interests of teacher on subjects is determining factor because the more teachers have knowledge about subjects, the more students are interested in. Finally, the last point is how teachers convey information. As i mentioned in the beginning, in this point no matter how much they have knowledge, the matter is whether they can convey the knowledge students or not. I have experience in this point. During my high school period, i had a teacher who was great on his field, had many articles etc. But he wasn’t good at delivering the knowledge. It was like he was waiting somethings from us to take knowledge from him. All those features made him bad teacher in my eye. But if he had chose being researcher or something like that, i am sure he would have been perfect in his field. Curriculum, learners and teachers should have connection each other. Even if they are lack of one connection, it ruins the whole chain.. All in all, relationship between curriculum and teacher, teacher and students, students and curriculum are the main three point which shouldn’t be ignored in education process.

  130. In fact, I cannot agree more. It’s hard to say something more, because I think the same.
    I believe that lessons should be interesting, teachers have to tell a lot of real life and also everyday work examples. Lecturer must be familiar with a given topic and the material need to present with excitement, good speech and language must be understood. Teaching must draw on useful handouts – complete and binding.

    I want to add one video… where u can see how some of the students feel about their education, and I find this speach of this young men very intresting, because, if we talk about some of the lessons – I would agree to him.

    The most important thing in education process is HOW to teach. I really liked the picture of a great lesson. I totally agree that the great lesson depends not only on well educated teachers or students but also there is important other things such as classroom or the entire surrounding. For example, if there is very cold in the classroom so it would be harder to learn something. This example shows that the good learning process consist of various spheres. What is more, the most important thing in the learning process for sure is the way of teaching/learning. Everybody could learn from each other when sharing with the ideas and minds. Splitting students into different teams makes teaching process easier and more interesting to students. Also it lets students always express their knowledge. Also teamworks are good not only for sharing the ideas and letting express for everybody their own minds but also the learning process become as a game – team game. When students are eager to know something, they will do their own effor t in knowing more and more.

  132. I have to agree to special point of the article, the beste teachers are these which can refer directly to the lived-in world of the children. If students can create a link between the subject matter and their own lives, learning is easy.
    So teachers need to know their class and have to do lessons emphatic,which is not easy in everyday work.
    To relate to myself, the best teachers treated me and the rest of the class with respect and most important of all, their lessons were relined with empathy, they used examples which were related directly to our everyday lifes. So we could easily create a link to the subject matter and learning came naturaly to us.

    While i was reading this article, i felt a little bit stressed, because i realized how difficult it is to become a good teacher. A great lesson depends on so many factors, that it seems extremely impossible to me to meet all the requirements. However, it is necessary to try our best as teachers so as to teach a ”great lesson” to our students. In my opinion, teachers should be well educated by the university, and after that they should also try to learn more and improve themselves. In addition, they should be really willing to try hard, to take into account all aspects in order to teach an effective lesson. Their teaching should correspond to children’s needs. That is why a teaching can be always the same. Teachers have to be flexible, ready to change their teaching if they realize that is not working, ready to evaluate every minute themselves.Not easy, of course. But who said that being a teacher is easy?

  134. What is a good teacher? First divine the word good. And well, when is somebody a good teacher? Sometimes i am a little bit irritated and disappointed because i have teachers that i really not divine as a teacher. They know a lot, don’t get me wrong! But to give students information on the right way and really teach them is a whole other story. Especially for professors that only have work experience but never teaches before. I can tell those professors don’t know how to teach students. They only tell things in a Powerpoint and nobody understand the terms that he/she is using.

    I ask the question on ask.com. And this is the question that i got;
    ” A good teacher is one who is able to bond with his/her students, to understand and to resonate with their feelings and emotions. A good teacher has a positive mental attitude, is flexible and is open to change. A good teacher should also be a role model to the students.”

    I think this is a good subscribe for what a good teacher is! it contains everything what we as society expect from a teacher. Especially the flexibility is important in my opinion. You need to give a class where everybody is interested, but also open to change the class if somebody have for example important questions. Also give students individual attention (especially primary school). They need that to improve their skills and sometimes you need help from a teacher to do that. I think as a teacher you need to find a good balance between theory (books) and your own guts. As a teacher you know what is best for the kids so sometimes you need to follow in my opinion your guts. That’s why i think they have many new developments in primary school because teachers found out that they’re more options to teach.
    In general i think we need to have the focus on the students (or kids). if you think or assume things for students, i think it’s not the right way. it is better to ask the student themselves because they know what is best for them and how they want have to classes!

  135. I believe that ıf you want to be good teacher you should find out the needs of your students .Motivate students the subject must be interesting for to be succesfull.So the teachers also need to study at home maybe much more than studenst becasue to be seccesful teacher is not very easy and also I think teachers must try alot of different way to teach to students for example some students like to play a game so you can teach them with a game some students really like to read so you can teach them with reading so all teacher must know that which methods are better for his/her students because I think it is the most important things for teaching students for example I hate to learn something with playing game I dont know why but I really dont like I cant focus I cant imagine I can learn somethimg from games actually they are so borring so to be teachers are not very easy .

  136. A good teacher has a lot of knowledge and prepares lessons and materials in advance. He uses curriculum materials to support the presentation of and interaction with the curriculum content. This includes textbooks, workbooks, manipulatives, memory maps for taking notes and other more or less innovative materials. He also uses colours, bold images and space on the page to enable learners to build up their own unique way of making sense of the material. It’s important that he provides opportunities to demonstrate the new knowledge, encourages students to work collaboratively and independently, to be actively involved in their learning, to rehearse new learning and also put in place a process of reflection and ongoing evaluation.

  137. Materials are an essential element of the learning environment.
    The opportunities offered by information technology to be used can be prepared easily. While it is important to find or prepare materials as well as the actual effect occurs when used in an appropriate manner within the course.for example; very well prepared material, in a manner not fit for purpose or above the level of students’ prior knowledge and perception as opposed to facilitate learning if used will reduce interest and attention.Similarly, parallel and not consistent with the information in the material of the word or phrase, which is used to draw attention to an important point of learning prevents the applications.Material not only well designed but is not sufficient for an effective learning.It is very important to use in the course.
    Because the material, but is an integral part of teaching and learning supports when used in goal-oriented.

  138. In my opinion to be a good teacher first we have to have passion to do it.
    I think is obvious for everybody that teachers have big influence in our lives.
    Depends from their behavior, metodology and approach they can inspire, motivate us or completly make us hate some subjects.
    Example of good teacher for me: In primary school i hated math, my teacher required to much and made students feel stressed and stupid. I thought that i would never be able to be good in this subject. I felt really stupid. Then in high school i met really nice and open minded women (math teacher) she showed me that is nothing to worry and stress about, she understood that not everybody were born to be good in math. Still I was not one of the top in my class but i enjoyed this subject just because of her way how she explained things and how she behaved during the class! She taught me a lot and i’m very thankful for that.

    Choosing good material for lessons is without any doubts already a key fact for a good lesson. the problem is, that this step is at the same time one of the most difficult ones in creating a lesson. In the internet you can find a lot of already planned lessons. i would guess that half of them should never be used. on the other hand you can also make a very good lesson with bad material…here an exaple:
    last year (oh my god its already 2014?) i was preparing a geography lesson for 16year-old children with the topic “climate zones”. at the beginning we gave our students a very bad map where you could see a segmentacion into 5 zones, divided by lines and marked with degrees of latitude (which was also wrong by the way). We asked them what they think about this segmentacion. as it was a map from the geography book the mayority of them was content with the map. but step for step we discussed about the segmentacion and at the end we all asked ourselves: “What is the sense to divide the world into 5 climate zones?”, “Can you really drag a line between this zones?”.
    So i think that good material can really help teachers a lot to make good lessons, but still its your turn to guide your students into a certain direction! And you can also use bad materials for good lessons.

    You just can‘t be a good teacher, you can became good, experienced teacher. Of course is always possible to use some advices of experts, but I think good teacher should hear what the student says. Also good teacher uses a big variety of teaching techniques, he must now how to explain the same thing in different ways, for different students, because every student learns in different ways. But this is my opinion, other people are thinking in different way and maybe they imagine a good teacher in totally opposite thinking. For me the bigest impression is made by passionated and free minded teachers, when they are teaching in such an easy way.

  141. Question, who is a good teacher, can’t be answered in a simple sentence. Every teacher has different styles how to teach. It’s very hard to categorize. But in my opinion a good teacher is a professional who is open mind, communicative, patient, expert in some area of knowledge or skills, community leader, public servant, parents substitute, children confidant, member of teacher’s organization, has roles in community and of course has authority in class. More than this, responsibility in the classroom has to be arranged at the teacher and students: teacher has to provide a study and consultations for students who need special explanation; students also have to provide the study with willingness to work, independent learning, innovative projects and here is also opportunity to develop their skills, to become independent, etc. According to my experience is very good if a teacher has clear learning purposes and outcomes, uses different interactions to match purposes and outcomes: informing, describing, explaining, modelling, demonstrating, coaching, listening, watching, questions; is affection for children, uses flexible grouping’s, skillful use of questions, manage time to observe, circulate, respond and intervene, etc.

    I totally agree. Sure, there is a mutual relation in curriculum but firstly must give the lead to students. Teachers have some responsibilities. Some of teachers can escape their liability and they can want more effort to students so they can give activity to students. In my oppinion, lessons shouldn’t be just evaluate. In this situaiton it can be boring to learning. It need creativity, imagination, new ideas so in this point teacher have big role to control in the class process. Another point, Huge part of curriculum shape with teaching tasks with traditional or technological way. Such as textbooks, media etc. Traditional way provide more active, participatory teaching process for teacher and students. But in technological way it is not valid. Effective learning with appropriate matterials, motivating, follow the curriculum, good choise for assesment. Otherwise, good communication skills, classroom quality, teaching style etc. Conclusion, a good teacher firstly should be like own job, should be know responsibilities and should be choose effective materials.

  143. I think beeing a good teacher depends on many things. For exampel it depends on the subject, on the students, on the attetude of the students and the different methods of the teacher.
    For example: We had a teacher (in physik) who did a lot of practical work with us and who told a lot af funny storys, but it was no fun for us. we made fun of him and disturbed his lesson. The question is why? – I think because he had no authority, he tried to be cool and not to be strict. We all knew that we could do what we want and we still would get a good mark.
    On the other hand we had a strict teacher (in math) who made difficult lessons and exams and he was very authoritative, but we learned a lot and at the end I am happy that I spent a lot of effort.
    So what I want to say is, that I think that its not only important to have different methods to teach…What I mean is that it need to be autentic.

  144. The teacher is judged by the way he teaches, how „good” their lessons are… as you can see in this article, in the first picture “a great lesson” depends on so many things, that’s why it’s very hard to put together a lesson which would satisfy all the students in the class. But it is possible. Recently I have been thinking about this topic so much, that I decided to make a small research of my own by asking some people, which was their favorite subject in primary school or high school, I won’t tell all the answers, just my conclusions which are –
    – When people answer the question which was their favorite subject and mainly WHY, they all say it’s because that they were/are interested in this subject and the teacher was great (favorite subject and favorite teacher are often connected)
    – When asked – which was the least favorite subject and mainly WHY, the answers are – because I wasn’t good at that subject and the teacher was horrible.
    This is how I came to the conclusion, that maybe there are no boring or incomprehensible subjects, just the teachers who don’t know how to motivate and interest students, and mainly because they use just few teaching methods, which constantly are repeated, so for some students these methods are acceptable, but for those students who have different learning styles, that is unacceptable.
    This is one of the reasons why I think that only open-minded, creative, flexible and clever people can become good teachers.

  145. Every teacher had different learning styles and technics. They all have prepared some teaching units where they sum up all necessary things like – Methodology, aims, objectives and content. Teacher need some adaptation week to see and understand student learning style, because students also learn differently. Teachers need to be a good friend with students, make good student-teacher relationship. The best teaching method is when the teacher can prove a theoretical thing with some examples or visual proves. At that time students can see how all these theories work in practical life. In my opinion all teachers who love their work and who can be happy and proud of their students are the best ones.

  146. Everyone is different and it follows that each needs a different approach. Teachers responsibility is to find access for each student, facilitate the learning process. Teacher have to be interested in each students growth then student will feel a support from teacher and it will be easier to communicate with each other. Also important to help student using different methods and materials. in my country we have a special program who helps students with learning difficulties. Teacher have to made a postcards which will help student in learning. in this postcards are written main laws and thing what students have to know, for example, in mathematics there will be mathematical formulas (algebra and geometry calculations). In languages there will be about correct spelling etc. It is the way how teacher use simple materials to help their students.. And it is very useful.

  147. Each student learns in different ways. Some students need to different ways (as the material) for understand while only explain is enough for some students. Moreover, using different materials and different ways can improve students’ attention. And it provides long-lasting learning. The curriculum tells a lot things. But teachers implement the curriculum. İf teachers recognize the student, they knows learn best with which the way the way for students. Teachers must recognize their students well. And teachers should make choice of materials according to this. It is not easy to plan a lesson. He/ She has to think about many things ( as materials to be used, the duration of the course, the status of students etc.), when teachers make program lessons. I think, Increases experience of the teachers,they will be more successful in this regard. And therefore practical training should be increased in faculties of education .

    What Being a good teacher is ? This question can not just be answered in a simple sentence. There is not such a thing as a perfect teacher. Teaching is such a subjective task.

    The perfect example for that is that you can give two different teachers the same subject to teach , they will do it differently even sometime drastically differently, but the result will be that students will get the knowledge.

    That what a good teacher and a good teaching is all about. A good teacher, should have an exhaustive knowledge of the subject he wants to teach, but most of all the two aspects which are more important are patience and pedagody. Because the main objective of a teacher is student getting knowledge, whatever the way of teaching.

  149. I believe in order to be a good teacher you must firstly find out the needs of your students. To be successful and motivate students the subject must be interesting. I also think that your teaching strategy depends on the level you are teaching for example for children the best way to learn is through having fun and using their imagination. You need to adapt different teaching methods for different students. To me teachers need to be more involved in the design of the curriculum and should have more access to any materials that they feel will benefit the class. They need to plan what they will teach for example if a class needs more vocabulary. How will they teach this? Technology has also been proven to help students learn as it is more interesting. I feel each teacher should be given the opportunity to use the new and latest classroom materials.

  150. Traditional method of education is really important. We can’t just throw it a way and made a new one. For me it have to adopt new things , new ideas. We have to rework it with a new tools because lifes go on. We are changing year by year and teaching method should be updated every time . We can’t stay still we have o move one.For example we should try to open creativity in students (we have to made conditions for it ) . Nowadays we need freash points of view if we want to change somthing in a good way. Teachers have to learn differnt methods of learning they should do that if we want do grow passion, logical thinking, asking questions, creativity in students. They have to juggle with those methods to attract, to show thing in a nice way.

  151. The ´how´ in teaching is the most important issue in teaching. But it cannot be said that there is only one right way of teaching. Actually I think that it depends on how pupils like to learn and how they are used to learn. In the last years, it became more and more popular to do group work instead of didactic teaching, but in my personal experience, it was sometimes too much of that kind of teaching and some teachers also didn´t really know how to support pupils in those exercises. But if a teacher knows how to do it right, group work is worth being expanded.
    A more important problem in teaching is that often the environment in which children learn (the classrooms and schools) is not considered that important as it actually is. The design of the room also influences the success or the failure of children learning.

    1. Referring to “In the last years, it became more and more popular to do group work instead of didactic teaching” I wouldn’t say the opposite of group work is didactic teaching. Much more I’d say a (experienced) teacher who has didactical skills knows when and who to use group work as a method. Or generally speaking: How to find and use alternatives of the antiquate ex-cathedra teaching.
      Which leads me to the point where I’m gohing ahead with Iris comment:
      Besides the questions of the material, it also should be considered in which spatial setup a teaching process takes place. Sometimes a worksheet might be helpful, but working in a informal education setup outside, wouldn’t get easier with many papers (or folders) laying around.

      And to mention the third main pedagoge besides the teacher and the room (including the materials) you should always keep in mind the time!
      How long is a attention span? How long can you focus? How much time do you want to spend with boring fact memorizing?

  152. What a ‚good teacher‘ is can be characterized on so many levels. In my opinion, teachers have to possess a certain amount of prior knowledge. But the more important thing is that they how to present and to deliver it. Obviously, there are different learning types and because of that, we require a great choice of material in class. As it was said in the text, curriculum materials are undoubtedly one of the main tools that shape the teaching task. I agree to that, because I also think that the quality of the used material relates to the quality of a lesson. Mainly it has to give students new information linked to what they already know, plus demand active participation from students.

  153. What makes a good teacher? There are a numerous answers to this question but for me the most important factor is the passion to work and the encouragement to improve the own teaching. A teacher who tries to make the best out of his work is on a good way but still you need to stay on the track and moving own since learning never stops – especially not for teachers. What is more is that teachers need to reflect themselves continuously. They have to find out which role they have in classroom, how they master difficult situations, what their relationship is like to their student, how they make the students learn and if their message conveys to the students.

    I think that for a good teaching, the better is to do with traditional methods but also with new technologies. In every sector, we must not forget the principles of traditional methods which have proved themselves. But in education, children need to have landmarks so that they can understand and learn better. At school we have to give them new information linked to what they already know, or at least new information they could link to something familiar. This can be done through activities in groups, mixing ideas, or also by more practical works, and by little trips or presentations about the subject they learn. By the diversity of activities, I think each learner can do well out of it and find their way according to their learning style.
    Moreover, a teacher cannot only be a “reservoir” of knowledge. He/she has to apply knowledge to a given topic and see what the connections there are with the environment, and particularly with students’ milieu. Thus, teachers can understand better students if they find what motivates them the most, and also if they are able to get used to elements composing the new generation like new technologies, which does not mean leaving traditional methods out.

  155. While increasing participation is an obvious goal in courses that include frequent discussions and small-group work, it is also important in a lecture course. In short, if only a few students participate by volunteering answers, asking questions, or contributing to discussions, class sessions become to some extent a lost opportunity to assess and promote learning. You can improve student participation in your course by devoting time and thought to shaping the environment and planning each class session. Furthermore, the way in which you interact, both verbally and non-verbally, communicates to students your attitude about participation.
    Ideally, the goal of increasing participation is not to have every student participate in the same way or at the same rate. Instead, it is to create an environment in which all participants have the opportunity to learn and in which the class explores issues and ideas in depth, from a variety of viewpoints. Some students will raise their voices more than others; this variation is a result of differences in learning preferences as well as differences in personalities. For example, some students who do not speak often in class are reflective learners, who typically develop ideas and questions in their minds before speaking; others are shy students who feel uncomfortable speaking in front of groups (at least initially). Many students who frequently volunteer to contribute are active learners, who typically think while they speak. The instructor’s goal is to create conditions that enable students of various learning preferences and personalities to contribute. To reach this goal, you will need to take extra steps to encourage quiet students to speak up and, occasionally, ask the more verbose students to hold back from commenting in order to give others a chance.

  156. I think it is important nowadays that educative material is given in different forms. There are different types of learning and not every child has the best success with the same presentation of the information. Some children learn better if they see something, others prefer to hear something and others have to do something with their hands or have to imitate something. Children have to get to know the different forms of presentation and should be supported by their teachers to discover which the best method for themselves is. Because we have the Internet and are used to it, different forms of presentation won’t be a problem in the future, I think.

  157. I think children will only learn when they have the mental capacity for it. What means that it is more difficult for a child to learn something that is totally different to what is already in it’s mind. It’ll be easier to process information when those actually affect those concerned children. This will be enhanced with a increase of a teachers freedome to teach and more time for teaching and learning. Because nobody will know what the students will affect while they create a curriculum. So, i the curriculum leaves gaps to communicate with each other and to try to find some practical things to demonstrate something it will be way easier to learn AND to teach. The learning process will might take longer, but the recived information will last longer and learning might be not known for boredom, but with experience. Well, wouldn’t that would be great?!

  158. I truly believe that it is not the knowledge in which a teacher has that makes them a ‘good teacher’ and makes children’s learning progress at a faster pace but how a teacher decides to deliver the knowledge. Many aspects need to be considered when planning a lesson for children. How will the teacher organise the class? What resources will the teacher use? What key vocabulary does the teacher want the children to learn? Is the work differentiated? Is the work exciting and catered around the children’s interests? Is timing thought through thoroughly for the different parts of the lesson? These are only a few of the aspects that need to be considered when planning a lesson. In order to be a ‘great’ teacher a person needs to be very creative in order to constantly come up with different ideas for lessons that are exciting and inspiring.

  159. I agree with what this article talks about when it mentions materials and adapting to context. I think it’s really important for teachers to introduce different materials in the class because all children are different and learn in different ways and should be given a fair opportunity to learn. Variety of materials in the classroom can help hold students attention so can save some students from losing interest and falling behind. I also agree with what is said about adapting to what the environment demands as I think it would make learning easier for the children and help their development as they’d have a better understanding of what’s going on around them.

    The term a “good teacher” can be characterized on so many levels. I firmly believe that a “good teacher” cannot be defined by the quality or quantity of knowledge that they possess but by how they deliver this knowledge to others, be it to a group of pupils or on a one-to-one basis. One of the main challenges a teacher faces is gaining the respect of their students, which can be achieved in a variety of ways. From my own experience, my favourite teachers in school were the ones who I had a positive relationship with, as well as knowing that I was making good learning progress in the class- as a result of the respect I had for the teacher as a person and as a teacher. There is no doubt that a “good teacher” needs to have excellent communication skills, not only to communicate the concept of the lesson in question but to engage and motivate the pupils. It is important for the teacher to also have respect for each individual in the class- a responsive approach, valuing the opinion, prior knowledge and learning styles of each pupil can prove invaluable in creating a positive attitude to learning in the classroom. As mentioned in the video, it is certain that an enthusiasm for the subject is important for the teacher to have so that they may motivate, enthuse and engage the pupils. This enthusiasm can be portrayed in many different aspects, such as through active pupil involvement in lessons, a sense of humour and of course a consistant method of working regarding discipline and a positive attitude to learning.

    Desde mi punto de vista el articulo es bastante importante ya que aclara muy bien el cómo diseñar las actividades y la utilización de los materiales educativos de los que se dispone, y creo que a todo educador le vendría bien tener todos estos conceptos claros.
    Otro punto bastante importante es que pienso que es mucho mejor que cada profesores se hiciera su propio curriculum y administrara sus clases de una manera favorable a las necesidades de sus alumnos, ya que es mucho mejor una elaboración propia de acuerdo a las necesidades de cada alumno que una general para todos.

    El artículo que nos presenta es bastante orientativo para cualquier educador, en lo que se refiere a la preparación de las actividades para los alumnos. Siempre se ha dicho en los círculos docentes, que es tan importante la clase como la elaboración previa de los contenidos y didáctica de la misma y, en este sentido, estoy totalmente de acuerdo con esta visión de la enseñanza. Los materiales curriculares sirven de base para la tarea docente y de guía metodológica para cualquier profesor. Por ello, es un valor a tener en cuenta el hecho de que el docente se implique en la elaboración de los propios materiales curriculares. Esta implicación activa en el proyecto de creación aporta una mayor riqueza tanto a los contenidos como a los medios y materiales que se utilizan dentro del aula y que repercuten de manera positiva en el proceso de la enseñanza.

    Nowadays, it’s really difficult to find teachers that they are trying every day to be close to the students and try to learn them things with a different and at the same time interesting way for the students.
    From my experience in the classes-as a part of practice-the students are really excited when the teacher tries through activities to explain them things that can see in their life.
    The implementation of activities should be based on the interests and needs of students. Also, the teacher should set specific goals to achieve for example the knowledge he wants the students to take…
    At the end it’s important to make an objective evaluation of himself in order to see if he succeeded his goals.

  164. Hay muchos criterios para que podemos decir que alguien es un buen maestro. Raramente el profesor está incluyendo todo el esfuerzo en su conferencia. Importante es que el profesor entiende los estudiantes y que se sabe como adaptarse. Cada profesor debe mantener su plan de trabajo y encontrar maneras para enseñar más fácilmente a los estudiantes. Cada día vemos alguna innovación en el trabajo de los profesores con los estudiantes. Sobre todo, lo más importante es el enfoque del profesor al estudiante. Profesor que nos trata bien se converte en un modelo para nosotros. Quieremos estar como el y enseñar los niños lo que el enseña nosotros.

    Qualities of a good teacher are a little bit hard to define because it depends of what you think is important in life and what your personality is like. For me a good teacher is someone who is not only teaching but someone who is approachable and commit to children/students. Teaching is a small part of your job as teacher because there is a lot more to do than only teaching, for example communicate! If you don’t communicate with the students/children how could you know what is going on in their lives and what interests them? If you don’t know those things you can’t passionate them. A good teacher also needs to be enthusiastic, fair, friendly, respected and respecting and so on.
    There are many qualities for a good teacher but I think the most important is to be passionate in what you do. If you are passionate by teaching you will find creative ways to enthusiasm children/students and to talk to them.

  166. I think the term “good teacher”is so complex and consists of many personal characteristics and years of training. For me the teachers which I remember best and miss the most were the ones with enthusiasm about their subject and a wish to share their knowledge with us. I think that students love and respect the good teachers and forget the others after some time. Like first girl in video said – firm, but fair.
    Teacher is the person who are all the time in relationships with people, with students, with other teaches, with parents of the students. I think very important skill is the ability to understand the situation, to feel the environment and be able to make decisions very fast. In some way good teacher is like an actor, like a showman who needs to keep the attencion of the audience, get the message to them and make them to think about it.

    There is nothing more terrible then a boring classroom. What teachers should do for this is being a little bit creative. For example when teaching history, teachers can teach the subject in dialogs or they can animate it. A good teacher shouldn’t be boring and monotonous .As the children say in the video; affection is important. Every person can have problems if the teacher treats that troubled child like a friend and shows affection, this problem will be solved. A teacher should be able to be a parent or a friend. It is wrong to give a lesson and make the students study lesson continuously. Teacher can join student’s activities. She/he should give importance to their ideas. Let’s think a bit. The subjects that we were good at, weren’t the subjects that the teachers that we loved taught?
    Teachers’ and teacher candidates’ thinking about it and empathizing is the best way to communicate with students. The question “What kind of teacher would I want?” is very important.

    To meet the needs of today and to be able to prepare them for future it is necessary to raise our students as conscious students about how they will learn, how they will think and how they will use the required technology for these. While the technologies and materials used in teaching process are supporter tools in the proper fulfillment of learning, being able to follow the developments in technology that occur with every passing day and being able to use them in the right way for the needs of daily life are skills that should be gained. Primarily educators should have these skills; then they should be able to make the students gain them. Effective learning in the classroom atmosphere can be provided when at least one of the interactions among student-teacher, student-student, student-content and student atmosphere interactions is able to be at high level. To make these interaction types at high level, teaching technologies and materials can be harnessed. Learning better can be provided with technologies and materials prepared in accordance with the need of learning individually of the students who has different perception ways.

    Realmente hoy en día es difícil encontrar a los profesores que de verdad quieren enseñar y ayudar a desarrollar el conocimiento y su pensamiento.

Esta cualidad de la pasión creo que es muy importante ya que transmiten que su vocación profesional de una manera diferente y esto hace que los alumnos muestren interés por la materia, desde la experiencia de cada profesor que ha vivido también se llega a transmitir el conocimiento para los alumnos.

    To me, a good teacher is someone who really cares about his students, someone who really has a passion for his job. I think it is really important to be passionate about his subject because it’s much more interesting to listen to a person who is really captivated about what she’s saying than listening to someone who is just here because it’s her job.
    In high school, i had a teacher of History who was really passionate about his job and when he was teaching us an historic event for example, it was as if he was relating a story, he was standing in the middle of the class, imitating the scene and we all had the feeling that we were living the event. We had so much fun and at the same time, it was a really good way to help us to remember the lesson.

    If a teacher has enthusiasm, love and respect for both the students and their subjects, knowledge and creativity, then we won’t have to link them to bossiness and homework. It is commonly accepted that studying is a painful experience we all have to go through, a painful boring experience. However, if the teacher can stir studying into life, with their humor, then it mightn’t be as boring. Everybody enjoys fun, laughter and new things. A teacher needs to explore different ways of teaching, to be able to think out of the box. By using their sense of humor and imagination, teachers can show their fun side to the students and therefore bringing about a more comfortable and relaxing teaching environments. Furthermore, to develop a good relationship, there should be love and respect between the two. A teacher should always respect the students, so to give them confidence and love for themselves. By encouraging a student in a non-severe way will hearten them, and motivate them to improve, and prevent them from having teacher-fear. As well as that, teachers could also act like a role model, to bring about the message of how to treat others and the basic politeness. This strategy works to ways and really develops their relationships.

  177. Teaching is a career that provides challenges, excitement, personal reward and a chance to encourage and support others to achieve their goals.There are many personal qualities and skills that make someone a good teacher.
    These include:
    being good at explaining things
    being a people person and enjoy working with a wide range of people
    enthusiasm
    having a strong knowledge in particular subject areas
    being a good time manager
    ability to work in a team as well as using your own initiative
    keeping your cool under pressure
    having patience and a good sense of humour
    being fair-minded
    coping well with change
    enjoying a challenge.
    Good teachers know that by listening to and working with colleagues, parents, other professionals and community members that they can inspire students and improve their learning.

    In my opinion there are too many teachers who became teachers because they did not know what to become instead. Unfortunately these people do not have this certain passion that you need to be a good teacher. You really need to WANT to be a good teacher and make efforts for reaching this target. That is preparing lessons while thinking about the student and in which way the lesson will be useful for him and not thinking about yourself and how to prepare a lesson with as less effort as possible. Too many teachers are lazy in my eyes, they are exhausted about everything, annoyed by the children and just frustrated that they do not have fun in their job. For this reason one needs to be aware of what expects him in his future as a teacher and motivated to be a good teacher for his pupils so that they are well prepared for their futures.

    Como hemos podido leer en el artículo, los materiales educativos están constituidos por todos los instrumentos de apoyo, herramientas y ayudas didácticas que se construyen o seleccionan con el fin de acercar a los estudiantes al conocimiento y a la construcción de los conceptos, a fin de facilitar de esta manera el aprendizaje.
    No obstante, es fundamental tener presente que el sentido de estos materiales deriva de la decisión de cómo seleccionarlos, qué utilización darles, para qué y cómo organizarlos en una actividad, lo cual debe ser el resultado de la reflexión del docente sobre lo que quiere enseñar, lo que espera que aprenda el estudiante y los procedimientos que deben desarrollar tanto el profesor como los alumnos para lograrlo.
    Cuando se toma la decisión de diseñar materiales educativos para apoyo de un curso, se debe de tener clara la función que cumple estos materiales dentro del proceso de enseñanza y aprendizaje, pues hay que tener siempre presente que somos mediadores en el encuentro del alumno con el conocimiento.

    Desde mi perspectiva el aprendizaje debe ser enfocado desde el propio alumno sino nunca será efectivo, y necesita de una “venta atractiva”, es decir, de fácil recepción por el educando. Para este concepto hoy en día contamos con multitud de métodos entre ellos: audiovisuales,las TICS, el trabajo de campo, dinámicas, charlas informativas, etc. Cada conocimiento se podrá vender de una forma concreta, unos más atractivos y otros menos. Pero lo importe de todo esto no es el pensar “¿como podemos vender ese conocimiento de la mejor forma posible?”, sino como a nuestros educandos le llegará mejor este conocimiento, siempre teniendo en cuenta a las personas podremos lograr que se produzca el aprendizaje. Creo que la forma correcta de educar es mediante una dinámica participativa, democrática, reflexiva donde los educandos tengas las propias riendas de su camino de aprendizaje.

  181. I certainly agree that a good teacher in the video children are friendly, reliable and should be equitable. Should be a teacher who is primarily devoted to education and training. The teacher needs to ensure his course on the subject and draw the attention of the students. Should respect the views of students and their views on the subject. Treat them equally no matter what they felt in the individual by giving them responsibilities. Students will respect such a teacher, the other kinds of love, and the teachers almost a despotic dictator is no difference.

    Estoy totalmente de acuerdo con el artículo ya que todo profesor debe de apoyar sus explicaciones en distintos materiales, para que así el alumno pueda seguirlo y comprender mejor los conceptos que este les ofrece, pero siempre el docente tiene que ir innovando y adaptándose a lo que la sociedad mas demande, pues si solo usas libros los alumnos no podrán aprender a buscar buena información en internet y además este se aburrirá en sus explicaciones haciendo que se distraiga y no aprenda todo lo adecuado de esa asignatura.

A good teacher is kind, is generous, listens to you, encourages you, has faith in you, keeps confidences, likes teaching children, likes teaching their subject, takes time to explain things, helps you when you’re stuck, tells you how you are doing, allows you to have your say, doesn’t give up on you, cares for your opinion, makes you feel clever, treats people equally, stands up for you, makes allowances, tells the truth and is forgiving. At the same time patience and adaptability is very important.And a good teacher is somebody who learns more everyday. Someone who adapts and reinvents their practice all the time. Someone who doesn’t think that having a top degree or being super qualified makes them any better or more knowledgable than anyone else.I had lots of teachers in my education life and the teachers I love them had good communication with us students.I think the communication is most important thing.

    Con el fin de que aquellos que lo escuchan “alumnos” adquieran el conocimiento y los conceptos para un buen aprendizaje, es decir, como si esto fuera en tiempo real.
    Teniendo siempre en cuenta, como no puede ser de otra manera, el saber manejarlos, para que el alcance que queremos conseguir de estos “pedagógicos” sea el mas útil y de los mejores resultados.

  186. Las actividades y la realización con la que se va a llevar la clase, la asignatura o el curso es algo importante, por lo que se necesita una buena planificación de lo que se va a llevar a cabo a lo largo del curso academico.
    Es importante partir de los conceptos y materiales que se van a desarrollar en las clases para los alumnos y la metodología planteada, ya que se debe intentar que todos los alumnos aprendan los contenidos.
    Aunque la educación no es un juego, ni las clases son para “divertirse” creo que si es acertado que las clases se lleven desde una perspectiva más activa, en la que se lleva a la participación de los niños/as del aula, en la que no solo se copie, o lean los ejercicios en clase, sino en la que sea “divertido” aprender. Por lo que llevando a cabo lo establecido en el curriculum escolar, creo acertado que los profesores innoven en sus actividades a la hora de dar clase.

    The single most important skill that a teacher needs is the ability to communicate effectively with their pupils. Without good communication, learning becomes extremely difficult for students, young and old alike. Personal involvement, enthusiasm and an appropriate sense of hunmur makes a teacher more approachable. With technology the way it is, children are used to receiving information quick and so often have short attention spans. A teacher must have enthusiasm and energy to deliver the information to the kids. If a teacher can hold children’s attention and engage them in lessons, there are less behavioural issues and thus they can gain control of the classroom.

    Dictatorial methods of teaching are becoming more and more obsolete, making learning active rather than passive. In my own country in the North of Ireland, a revised curriculum was introduced in primary and secondary schools in 2007 ‘to meet the needs of young people, society, the economy and environment in the 21st Century.’ (http://www.nicurriculum.org.uk/about/). The main changes include the introduction of active lessons, more relevant curriculum content and self directed learning. This has brought major changes to the attitudes of teachers who now realise the need for active learning.

Es mas, yo creo que demasiados recursos, como por ejemplo los ordenadores pueden llegar a ser una distraccion para el alumno.
    Por otro lado los medios de los que dispone el docente, previamente tiene que hacer una buena planificacion de como va a utilizarlos para desarrollar su activdad, y asi poder conseguir los objetivos propuestos en el curriculum.

    It is without a doubt that if a teacher is boring and monotonous then the students will dread going to that class and will eventually skip that class as the lecture is boring and the students sense of creativity is not captured. On the other hand if an educatir makes the lesson interactive for the student and incorporates an element of fun and enjoyment then the students is more likely to want to participate and will become more encouraged to learn within that given subject or class.
    Often for some educators injecting this into their lessons can be very hard to do, as often there lessons consist of figures, dates, facts, rules, etc. but however for those who manage to inject it, the results are plentyful. Finally I believe that those teachers who makes there lessons enjoyable for the student experience are the ones who will get the best results.

  190. Fun! Lessons that are fun, inspire students to interact with the lesson as they gain enjoyment from participating. Fun lessons help create a better learning enviornment for everyone especially for the teacher as it helps gain respect from the student. In my experience I believe I learnt more from the teachers and lessons that I enjoyed, I feel this was the case as I gave them more respect and attention; This was reflected in my grades for those subject. This experience gives me the view that a good teacher has the skill to make a lesson fun but also be able to include high quality information within the fun lessons. Teachers should also have a high level of organisational skills, the ability to control the class as students can be disruptive, affecting the learning enviornment, but they should also have a combonation of great interpersonal skills and a personality to interact with the students; I feel if a teacher can interact with a student on a personal level, the student will feel valued and important therefore wanting to learn, resulting in their best effort for the teacher. In conclusion I believe being a teacher is extremely difficult as they need to poccess many skills to motivate the student, control them, and also to pinpoint the correct teaching methods to deliver the curriculum in a way the children will grasp best.

  191. In order to be a good teacher there is a long list of characteristics that teachers need to have. In the video students say qualities that they look for in a good teacher are easy going, approachable, enthusiastic, have the ability to inspire and involve students in a lesson and the ability to communicate effectively with their students. All these traits make for a comfortable and friendly learning environment in which students are more willing to learn.When a teacher makes the classes or lectures challenging and fun for the students then the it gives the students an added incentive to do well in that area.
    There is no doubting the need for sufficient knowledge in their subject areas but they must also have that passion for their subject. For a teacher who talks passionate about their subject excites and inspires students on that subject.

    First of all I want to begin with this question ‘how should be a good teacher?’in my opinion; A successful teacher doesn’t mean a good teacher. Because, teachers aren’t trained as information robot .they are guide to students in the class. While teachers talk to students ,we should study “ not to teach, to address. They will have a good teacher by this way. If teachers don’t accept this, they have two alternative ways. First alternative ; your can bring newness to enviroment and second alternative ; You’re going to deny your’s life in prison. The most logical is alternative 1. Briefly, a good teacher must believes to own students’ are going to make good things. For example: Thompson and her student’s story.
    Now, I want to write about teach. Assuming, we have same learning and teaching. Whereas the teaching is to give knowledge; the learning creates behavior change. This problem is memorizing’s result. The memorizing isn’t lasting and this approach slow down education and teaching system’s progress. The teaching methods is writing in the a lot of books and teachers are using this methods. But why we aren’t using these methods? For example; there are ”Six thinking hats methods” (Written by Edward de bono,1985). It is ideal method for students. Every colors have to diffrent mean. Colors; white-impartial, red-emotional, yellow-optimistic, black-pessimistic, green- innovator, blue-assessment. Teachers can turn for this method to game. They make colored hats with together students. In this way students can escape from memorizing.and the lesson be funny.:)

  193. Cómo ya se dice en el post, no sólo es necesario tener en cuenta por parte del profesor su intervención educativa, sino también las actividades que ayudarán a afianzar los conocimientos.
    Me parece un aspecto verdaderamente importante, ya que no todos los docentes tienen este último aspecto en cuenta, le restan importancia a algo que, para mi forma de entender la educación, es vital.
    También se trata el tema del empleo de medios o materiales curriculares en clase, que bajo mi experiencia, pienso que se infravalora demasiado, no se le atribuye la importancia que merece a un complemento educativo que en mi opinión es fundamental.

    In my opinion, the teacher’s work is not easy. Because of it is the best performed by persons who really like do it, for them is a passion to relay knowledge to students. Then it is more probably that this person will become a favorite teacher. The learning process should, as well as any other process, be effective. Increasingly, we see that the “school” methods of relay knowledge are not very effective. Would not be better to give students the opportunity to experiment to find their own creative solutions? Today, we have a lot of proposed criteria, methods, etc., which can make easier the relay knowledge and the reception, but unfortunately they are rarely used. On the other hand, the school should not only focus on the relay knowledge, but also to educate competencies, skills and attitudes.

    En mi opinión me gustaría aportar que el abuso de la evaluación absoluta (gracias a exámenes, cuestionarios y trabajos de laboratorio) es pernicioso. El alumno y el profesor deben llegar a un contrato, claramente definido, cuyo objetivo es mejorar el rendimiento del alumno a la hora de lograr cierto número de competencias. Cada estudiante parte de un nivel de base diferente. Los estudiantes deben ser conscientes que sus calificaciones durante el curso solo dependen de su trabajo, de su esfuerzo y de la relación de este esfuerzo comparado con el esfuerzo de los demás alumnos. Los alumnos que más se esfuercen acabarán alcanzando un dominio de la materia que garantizará mejores calificaciones.
    Muchos estudiantes no se dan cuenta de que el aprendizaje progresa a través de etapas y que la memorización es solo una de ellas, una de las primeras. No basta con recordar, hay que comprender, aplicar, analizar, evaluar e incluso crear nuevo conocimiento.

  197. Watching this video made me think that good teacher must be all-rounder. Besides the knowledge of the subject, he/she must have good social skills. I think students like to see a little bit of caring from their teacher. Also they like a teacher who intergrate their subject to a real world, because a lot of times there’s a question: ,,But why I need to study It, where can I use It in the real world?”. I think that’s the thing teachers should think about.
    But as the people are different, are also students and of course teachers. For some student, one teacher can be the best, but for other, the worse. There is no perfection.
    I think the key word is respect and It must come from both sides – from students and teachers.

  198. This article is very interesting as is the video of the students stating what they believe is a good teacher. You can see the overlap in the video of all the characteristics that the deem important. Being a good teacher is more than just knowing everything about the subject. A good teacher needs to be a good communicator, able to tell their students what they need to learn in a manner that is relevant to them. S\he needs to be able to control the class and be an authoritative figure but in a fair way. Approachability is also invaluable as a students needs to be able to come to the teacher will problems and questions they may have. Students seem to be more interested in learning the subject when they are more involved and are able to enjoy the subject.

  199. There is no doubt that the work of teacher is challenging, stressful and chaotic. It is very hard to know what makes a good teacher. From my experience of teaching in a secondary school last semester, a teacher has to have many characteristics and traits in order to be classified as a good teacher. Clearly, an excellent teacher must have good communication, organizational and interpersonal skills in order to succeed in the teaching profession. Moreover, it can be strongly argued that an effective educator must be an authoritative figure but in a fair and equal manner. The teachers that I liked best when I was in school were those that were passionate and enthusiastic about what they were teaching. When a student senses this in a teacher it can be rather uplifting. Indeed, I think flexibility is one of the most important traits of an educator nowadays. Someone who mixes and matches their teaching methods. Their teaching methods is not just simply reading information from a textbook but showing video clips and movies. Even bring the students on field trips. I think this teaching approach is very refreshing. Finally, I think respect is most pivotal aspect of teaching and education. There must be a mutual respect between both students and teachers. A teacher must earn their students respect rather than demand it. This is the starting point of what makes a good teacher.

    Para mí el buen profesor es aquel que se preocupa porque su alumno entienda las lecciones y no le suponga una carga estudiar, aquel que hace las clases amenas. Pero para esto debe tener previamente un buen programa de actividades que se complemente con la acción de profesor y los alumnos. También son muy importantes los materiales curriculares, porque son sobre lo que te basa para dar tus clases, pero no es lo más importante, no es más que un medio. A lo que le doy más importancia es a la conexión profesor-alumno, el resto solo lo complementa.

  201. The qualities necessary to be a ‘good’ teacher can vary from person to person, as we saw in the video clip, but can also vary between geographical locations and between students of different ages. There is also a massive difference in the thoughts of pupils, parents and politicians. On the whole teachers play an extremely important role in all of our lives, and we all have those teachers that stand out to us from our academic lives, and from these memories we can ascertain what we believe to be the ‘best’ qualities. But classes are so diverse and there are such a wide range of abilities being mixed into each class that what one pupil sees to be a good teacher, another from the same class may not. As shown in the diagram, there are many contributing factors, and the way they present their subjects is a contributing factor, and many feel that the use of interactive materials are definitely the way forward.

    Yo pienso, que existen miles de maneras de enseñar a un alumno y centenares de recursos.
    ¿ Pero de que vale todo esto si no son utilizados correctamente? Puedes tener muchos recursos, como son : ordenadores para los alumnos, presentaciones de powerpoint, libros de toda clase de editoriales… pero de que le sirve todo esto aun profesor, si en realidad no tiene esa vocación de querer educar a niños/as para que en un futuro puedan defenderse en el mercado laboral.
    Opino, que un docente que de verdad tenga vocación con los mínimos recursos y con entusiasmo, lograría enseñar muchísimo mejor a sus alumnos, que uno que por muchos recursos que tenga no sea capaz de sacarle partido por falta de interés sobre sus alumnos.

    I think at the moment materials in school are changing: The influence of new media, the internet, movies and smart devices are spreading in the school. That is necessary because the pupils today are “digital natives” that means they have grown up with the internet and their smartphones. So it is logical to bring the private devices to the classrooms. Maybe in the future pupils will have a tablet instead of books which would be a progress because old and often used books would belong to the past.

    On the other hand is a normal schoolbook in Germany used for 10 years. A normal electronic device lasts maybe for two or three years and they are expensive. A other problem is that the new technique in school will never be as smart as the devises of the pupils. So the big advantage that a electronic devise is more interesting as a book does not exist anymore. Maybe the schools should wait a few years until they change their materials to electronic devises.

    All materials have one problem: They can be very interesting but in the end the teacher is responsible for a good or a boring lesson. Materials are only a tool for the teacher but they cannot replace the teacher. That is why a lot of people go for example to a language school and do not learn the language with online tools.

    Pienso que los materiales para dar clases tienen que ser una herramienta más pero no indispensables, lo indispensable tiene que ser las ganas y el entusiasmo que muestran los profesores para enseñar a los alumnos. Creo que con los nuevos métodos los niños tienen mayor facilidad para aprender y divertirse pero también para distraerse, creo que lo mejor y más favorable para el niño es un mezcla entre como antiguamente se enseñaba con pizarra o libro de texto simplemente y lo actual que son los ordenadores las pizarras digitales, etc.

    The education is the thing that defines the life of every individual, therefore it is very important for the people. However, we all see that there is a crisis in the education. The problem is in the methods of teaching, the approach of the teachers toward the students and the materials that should be learnt. In my opinion, there are a lot of things that can be done to improve that and the first one is the way how the lessons pass. We all know that we cannot find every material interesting and be enthusiastic about it but still a good professional teacher can provoke interest. So the design of the lessons should be more varied. What I mean is that in can be included a lot of different styles of teaching. During the lessons there should be interaction between student and teacher, students should be included in the lesson as participants no just as listeners. Additionally, the teachers should pay more attentions on the individual needs, interests and problems. If the attention is more personal the students will feel more predisposed and valued. It is well known truth that when we are looked as unique individuals and not part of the crowd, we are more likely to have better self-esteem and that will reflect on our participation and our will to participate and expressing personal views. Furthermore, the more non-standard the methods are, the more they are likely to be remembered by the students.

    Teachers play a central role in the education of students. A teacher’s attitude and actions can leave lasting impressions. They need to create independent individuals.Should always promote a good atmosphere, act in a professional manner and be seen as role models by learners. They must teach through cooperation, facilitation, love and caring attitude and not by exercising authority, domination and giving punishments. For me a good teacher is a person the students feel inspired by. Someone how really understands the students and really communicate with them. Very important part of student learning is the textbook – the place from where he obtained information. And, if there is no textbook ??
    Would be very useful if, for one subject, the student ,use more of two senses – for example: eyes, hearing,smells ,touch…With more discussion and practice study material ,will be remembered much more durable and fast.

    A good teacher needs balance and balance is the operative quality in a teacher. Having the balance between being firm and fair as well as being passionate and approachable all play a part in a person being a good teacher.Having taught myself for one semester in a primary school I was able to observe the qualities that make up a good teacher. Having control is so important to a class because if a teacher has no control over a class how is anyone going to benefit from that situation. A teacher needs to have a love and passion for the subject they are teaching because if they are not motivated about the subject how do they expect the students to have a motivation also. Teachers also need to be approachable in case a student has a problem or is struggling and also with this approach ability they make the student more comfortable in their environment and more willing to learn.

  208. I think there are a lot of different and important characteristics that make up a good teacher. I can’t only mention one because it’s about the person as a whole. At first, a good teacher has to build a good relationship with the children because it’s all about good and respectful communication. Unfortunately, Austrian students who want to become a secondary school teacher don’t get that amount of practice in real schools than students for primary school. I think that’s a huge mistake because it’s such an important process to find out if you want to teach at schools or not. You really have to love the work with children and of course to be capable at what you’re doing. In my opinion, the teaching profession is a very exciting one because not only the pupils learn something know but also the teacher has to inform him- or herself and has to acquire knowledge constantly. As a teacher, you must be curious and motivated and you don’t have to be afraid to fail. A failure is the possibility to do it different and better the next time.

    No creo que un profesor explique mejor o peor dependiendo de los materiales que utilice, estoy de acuerdo que de cuantos mas materiales se puedan utilizar mejor pero cuando estos materiales sean escasos los profesores no deben de excusarse con ello, ya que un profesor no depende de los materiales que utilice sino del buen uso que haga de aquellos que pueda utilizar.
    Es cierto que la tecnología ha avanzado mucho en estos últimos años y que facilita muchos tipos de trabajo y que a los alumnos le puede motivar más a la hora de trabajar, pero también es cierto que hay profesores que con tan solo con sus palabras motivan a los alumnos y los lleva a su terreno.

  210. Marta Garrido Serrano dice: Responder

    Considero que el docente debe de tener en cuenta los posibles medios a utilizar en cada tarea de enseñanza y aprendizaje, pues estos son muy útiles a la hora del interés mostrado por el alumno.
    Las actividades deben estar enfocadas siempre al bienestar de los alumnos/as, a reforzar su creatividad, sus conocimientos y habilidades.
    El docente debe ser capaz de reconocer cuando un medio es eficaz y cuando no, en éste caso cambiarlo, y optar por otros.

  211. The needs of students range from an academic level, to physical level to personal level. I believe all aspects of students should be accommodated to through interactive learning with the various curriculum materials that are both tradional and modern. The video presents us with many recommendations as to the teacher they believe is “a good teacher” and I agree with most of these suggestions. My favourite response is a teacher who is firm but fair I believe this is very true. Also the demands of teachers include friendly, sense of humour, inspirational, approachable and good communicator, all vital skills for teaching. A teacher does not solely teach, personal relationship, inspiration and passion are also major factors. A students learning experience is made up of many elements including the teacher, the classroom, seating, salary, culture, gestures etc the list is endless.

  212. Luci Toledano YMaldonado dice: Responder

    Para empezar,creo que es muy importante preparar las actividades de los alumnos,y ver el tiempo que se quiere dedicar a la actividad .Son una pieza importante los recursosdidacticos.
    La participación del profesorado es el broche que debe brillar.Todo docente tiene que saber trnasmitir los conocimientos.. De el va a depender todo lo demas,es decir transmitir, confianza al alumno,conocer en profundidad .Los profesoress exigen una continua remodelación .. Innovación y formacion y no olvidar (Actión research) que es la investigación emprendida por los profesionales con objeto de mejorar sus practicas… ser efectivo ,formarse permanentemente.

  213. Como no toda la gente es divertida y no toda la gente no es una autoridad, a veces puede pasar que los alumnos no soy interesados por el tema explacado y el profesor o maestro puede estar un poco desilusionado. Imaginaos, el profesor está preparado para la clase perfectamente, pero a los alumnos no llama la atención. Por una parte, el profesor no se equivoca, por otra parte sí. Probablemente le falta algo como se llama técnica de enseñanza. A los estudiantes no les gustan las clases monotónas y se ponen aburridos muy rápidamente. Por eso se han creado las técnicas, que deberían ayudar a hacer el tema de clase más interesado teniendo en cuenta cumplimiento de plan annual. El diseño de actividades y materiales educativos es un ejemplo típico como desarollar una curiosidad de asignatura.

  214. What makes a good teacher? About this question I’ve already thought a lot of times. There are so many different aspects which need to fit together and it also depends on one’s own attitude how an ideal teacher should be. Parents have another opinion of a good teacher than the pupils, the headmaster or the politicians. So I think as the video already transferred, this is a very individual thing, which can hardly be generalized. For me all the mentioned facts in the video and in the article are important, but I’m afraid it’s almost impossible to find one teacher, which has all of those qualifications. This is why I think being a good teacher is also connected with being yourself and not to copy anyone or trying to behave like someone else. So for me as a prospective teacher it’s very important to reflect my own way of teaching all the time and to get a feedback from other teachers for strengthening my talents and discovering my deficits and concerning to this I think I can become a good teacher.

  215. Olga Cantero Contreras dice: Responder

    Como dicen los alumnos que aparecen en el vídeo que encabeza el artículo de nuestro profesor, todo docente debe tener algunas cualidades indispensables para un buen desarrollo en la enseñanza-aprendizaje en el aula, como son por ejemplo la cercanía, la buena comunicación, la capacidad para transmitir inspiración al alumno, ser una persona amistosa, respetuosa…y muchas otras. Y digo indispensables porque no concibo a un profesor que no cuenta entre sus cualidades con la mayoría de estas, ya que su labor es enseñar y para ello necesita captar la atención de niños y niñas.
    Por otro lado, en lo que se refiere al material curricular, mi opinión es bastante clara. Creo que un buen profesor no necesita un millón de materiales para conseguir que sus alumnos vayan a casa con una lección aprendida, aunque abogo por utilizarlos de una manera complementaria en las aulas, y más cuando estamos en un momento de total auge de las nuevas tecnologías, por lo que debemos aprovecharlas. No todos los profesores tienen esa capacidad de reciclarse con el paso del tiempo, pero creo que es aspecto muy necesario en la educación, renovar tanto los materiales como los conocimientos y las formas de transmitirlos.

    All teachers have an extremly demanding and challenging job. Every school and class contains a wide range of ability, thus an integral challenge that teachers attempt to overcome is to cater for all the children’s needs. These needs range from an academic level, to physical level to personal level. All aspects of the child should be accomadated through interactiving learning with the various cirriculum materials that are both tradional and modern, e.g interactive whiteboards and computer games. the video provided gives an insight to the ‘optimum teaching personality’ from the persepective of a group of students. They described a good teacher with words such as ‘friendly, enthusiastic and firm but fair’. As well as soley teaching, another major factor in the students learning is their relationship with the teacher. As illustrated in the diagram above, there are numerous factors such as the, teacher, classroom, cirriculum materials, contents and delivery of class, that contribute to the student’s learning experience.

  217. Rocío Díaz Blanco dice: Responder

    Es evidente que cada profesor va a desarrollar su papel en función de las creencias implícitas que tiene sobre lo que realiza, pero todos ellos deben saber cómo coordinar, planificar, dirigir y controlar una clase.
    Además de esto, podría complementar o aumentar el aprendizaje y conocimiento de los alumnos ayudándose de las nuevas tecnologías. Esto no significa que el profesor pierda su rol, sino que experimenta un cambio hacia nuevos modos de desarrollar actividades más cercanas a las nuevas tecnologías, aunque no todos los profesores están interesados en aplicarlas, a veces consecuencia de la falta de información que tienen sobre ellas.

  218. Julia Rodziewicz dice: Responder

    In my education path, from kindergarten to university, I’ve met a lot of teachers an professors. Most of them had really huge scope of knowledge. A lot of professors were authors of some specialist researches and books. But only a few of them were able to pass this knowledge to students and interest them in a topic of a lecture.
    The professions, which are teacher or professor are really not a piece of cake. Teaching is very hard and demanding job. No matter who are the students and how old they are. The most important thing is to create good relation between both teachers and students. I also think that teacher should be demanding person, but at the same time someone on whom students can depend. Knowledge about teaching subject is undeniably and most of all idea and capacity to engage students in topic.
    I also totally agree with the students from the film and their answers about features of good teacher.

  219. First of all the teacher has to love his or her job, because without it I think he or she never can be ogood teacher. In my oppinion you can easily recognise which teacher love his or her job and which doesn’t. The other main thing is the respect. The teacher who doesn’t have respect is not real teacher I guess. Without respect the teacher can’t be succesful, but it’s also not good, if the students are scared of the teacher. The sense of humour is also important, because with humour the teacheer can make his or her classes more exciting and the students will concentrate much more. It’s also important that the teacher should be approachable if you need something. At home I’m writing my thesis and I can keep contact with my teacher really hard! I’m wondering if I should change teacher, because on the one hand he doesn’t help me at all and on the other hand he makes my work harder, because I would need his signature for many documents so I can’t continue my work. My mother was also a teacher and lot of parents told her that she is the best teacher they have ever met with. She has respect, she has sense of humour, she is friendly and which is most important: she loved her job!

    Sin duda una de las preguntas más difíciles de responder es la de ¿qué es lo que hace un buen profesor?, ya que claramente el profesor debe tener una buena programación didáctica pero aparte de eso debe saber llevarlo a cabo y sacar partido a sus clases ya que lo más difícil es meterse a los alumnos en el bolsillo.
    Estoy de acuerdo con lo que dice la pedagogía moderna : las actividades deben ser coherentes con el proyecto curricular escolar y estar interrelacionadas con contenidos y objetivos, ya que pienso que es lo más importante, es lo esencial.
    Y creo también que el buen docente debe llevar la clase ya preparada y organizada, con contenidos trabajados para poder impartirla mejor de forma que sea entendida por sus alumnos, sabiendo el nivel que tienen para que sepan enfrentarse a la materia con posibilidades de aprender.

  221. Lorena Castillo López dice: Responder

    En este texto estoy claramente deacuerdo que se debe valorar más los materiales curriculares que los medios, ya pues los materiales curriculares tratan de fomentar, motivar, etc. a los alumnos, y los medios aunque sin menospreciar su importancia, tienen menos valor, pues se relacionan mayormente con cosas materiales. Aunque he de decir que los materiales curriculares de poco sirven si no hay una profesionalización correcta del docente, pues importa y mucho la creatividad , imaginación, etc. y lo involucrado que éste este con el ambiente educativo que lo rodea y la relación que tenga con su aula. Pues un docente bien formado, y con los materiales curriculares necesarios, puede captar la atención del niño/a con facilidad, transportandolo al mundo del conocimiento y la sabiduría, que éste le pueda otorgar. Pienso que para que se propície un buen entorno educativo en las clases, es necesario el cúmulo de las herramientas imprescindibles nombradas con anterioridad, aunque la personalidad del profesional sea un elemento clave para la transmisión de conocimientos.

    Desde mi punto de vista creo que un buen docente debe de llevar a su clase la materia preparada y organizada para impartirla de manera que se entienda, sabiendo en todo lo momento lo que quiere decir y de forma que capte toda la atención y el interés del alumno, para esto hay que saber que metodología hay que utilizar y el momento adecuado.

    Para esta motivación debe de hacer al alumno participe de las diferentes actividades que se realicen, como la utilización de la capacidad crítica ejerciendo el dialogo entre el profesor y el alumno, y que mejor forma que utilizar el debate, también sería propicio el empleo de las nuevas tecnologías, pero sabiendo en todo momento como debemos utilizarlas.

  223. Manuel Antonio Conde Del Rio dice: Responder

    Cuando las actividades están mas cerca del centro de interés de los educandos, es mucho más fácil que conectar con los mismos. Los medios por los que deseamos transmitir el conocimiento tienen una importancia muy alta, pero no por el medio en si mismo, sino por saber elegir en cada momento el medio más adecuado al centro de interés de los educandos y con el que podamos obtener un mejor resultado y la consecución de los objetivos planteados.

    El docente tiene que conocer y dominar un amplio abanico de medios para llegar al alumnado, pero sobre todo tiene que saber elegir en cada momento el medio más adecuado y que se acerque más al centro de interés de los mismos. Un medio de enseñanza inadecuado en un momento dado puede hacer que determinados conocimientos importantes e incluso del máximo interés para el alumnado pase desapercibido por una mala elección del medio con el que los presentamos.

  224. ANA ISABEL GARCÍA VIOQUE dice: Responder

    Asistir a clase con la materia preparada es responsabilidad del docente, además creo que cuando se preparan las actividades que se desarrollaran posteriormente en el aula la clase se desarrolla mejor, y si las actividades se adecúan al espacio y al tiempo del que se dispone la clase será más llevadera y esto aumentará el interés y la motivación de los alumnos. Pienso también que trabajar cada día actividades distintas para desarrollar unas determinadas competencias favorecerá el clima en el aula. Finalmente a la hora de evaluar se podrían contar estas actividades para fomentar la participación del alumnado.

    ¿La mejor manera de enseñar? Siempre podré decir que un buen profesor es aquel que como muchos profesores que me he encontrado a lo largo de mi vida y por suerte, son aquellos profesores que venían de sus propias casas con la parte del temario preparada, en el que se ajusta al tiempo de clase, a las actividades que habría que realizar en clase etc.

    Por eso todo profesor tiene el deber, como profesor que es, de prepararse previamente sus clases, y para poder complementar sus contenidos puede consultar libros, enciclopedias, internet, que quiera o no, también está para algo.

    Y para terminar, creo que además de enseñar el profesor, la mejor manera para que éste se vaya contento y motivado para el día siguiente, es que todo el alumnado que el tenga, le felicite por esa clase.

  226. NURIA MARTIN BERNAL dice: Responder

    Desde mi punto de vista, son los propios profesores los que deben de organizar las clases que van a impartir ellos mismos, es como mejor se entenderían y se haría de manera mas original ya que ellos mismos son los que saben que explicar y como impartir las clases a los alumnos de manera amena, y que estos entiendan la lección y los propios profesores puedan resolver las dudas a los mismo alumnos.También es bueno que se utilicen las nuevas tecnologías como las diapositivas,imágenes, etc para impartir las clases de manera diferente, pero lo más importante es que cada cual prepare su propia lección educativa, que para ser buen maestro no hace falta mucho más que poner interés en lo que realmente te gusta, traer aprendida las clases de ese día, y contar anécdotas que le hayan pasado durante su recorrido académico, eso es lo que despierta el interés de un alumno; la originalidad del profesorado.

  227. PAULA ROMÁN FERNÁNDEZ dice: Responder

    En mi opinión, al igual que es responsabilidad del profesor preparar la tarea y la clase también es responsabilidad de este transmitir motivación a sus alumnos, ya que tan importante es una tarea como la otra. Pero cabe tener en cuenta que no es necesario cumplir una serie de actividades a raja tabla porque creo que lo más importante es la colaboración y participación de los alumnos para complementar su aprendizaje a la misma vez que esto les permiten abrirse y formarse conjuntamente como personas.

  228. Alba Romero Galván dice: Responder

    Sería muy positivo, que el proyecto curricular, así como los medios, los realicen los/las docentes, previamente atendiendo a las necesidades y deseos de los/las niños/as, considero que es la forma más eficaz.

    Es importante tener claro los objetivos, así como, es fundamental adaptar las activiades cuando sea necesario.

    Cuanto más adaptado a las capacidades de los/las niños/as sea el material, mayor interés encontraremos, y con un poco de originalidad, aumentará el interés.

    Una vez despierto el interés, el/la profesor/a transmite el conocimiento, haciendo a los/las niños/as participes (sin dar todo hecho), para mantener su atención y conseguir participación y una buena transimisión de información.

    La evaluación inicial, continua y final, ayudará al profesor/a, a adaptar, modificar, detectar errores, así como a comprobar si se han obtenido los resultados esperados.

  229. Antonio Manuel Blanco Ramos dice: Responder

    Un profesor siempre debe de ser original y espontaneo ya que tiene que mantener la atención de los alumnos y eso es una labor difícil. Si el proyecto de enseñanza es elaborado por el mismo profesor que va a impartir la materia es mucho más eficaz, ya que el mismo es consiente del proceso y de su finalidad por completo, puede también plantearse los problemas que puedan surgir a partir de su planteamiento y así podrá afrontarlos con éxito, en cambio si los realiza otra persona en lugar del docente puede presentarse varias dudas y preguntas tanto por parte del alumnado al no entender bien lo que quiere expresar el maestro con sus medidas y el mismo maestro que no entiende bien la finalidad del proyecto, también puede presentarse que el docente no esté de acuerdo con las medidas establecidas y no trabajará a gusto, en definitiva, casa docente debe de realizar sus métodos, sus técnicas, sus materiales de trabajo… para que trabaje a gusto y más seguro de sí mismo ante cualquier contratiempo.

  230. Inmaculada Morales López dice: Responder

    En mi opinión es mejor tener un planteamiento de la clase que se va a realizar, así funcionará correctamente y se podrán adelantar más cosas como resolver las dudas de los alumnos. Hay que tener en cuenta los materiales que se van a emplear para las tareas y que todos participen en la actividad que plantee.
    Actualmente están utilizando las tecnologías para ir avanzando en todos los sentidos para una mayor eficacia. Pienso que esta muy bien, no creo que esto afecte positiva o negativamente sino lo que importa es cómo el profesor elabore y proyecte su actividad.

  231. Azucena Gutiérrez Burguillos dice: Responder

    Es bueno que los profesores elaboren y trabajen su propio proyecto curricular con el que van a trabajar, ya que los medios para que se produzca aprendizaje son elaborados y puestos en práctica por la misma persona, esto da un mayor grado de probabilidades de que aumente su eficacia.
    En primer lugar a la hora de elaborar este material, los docentes deben tener claro los objetivos que pretenden conseguir y adaptar las actividades a los posibles cambios que puedan surgir y a los distintos niveles cognitivos que puedan presentar los niños, el material debe ser innovador y motivador, que despierte en el niño un interés, y la forma de trabajar con el material es incluso más importante que éste mismo, los docentes deben ser intelectuales en acción que transmitan sus conocimientos. A todo esto debe ir unido una evaluación continua de todo el proceso, tanto antes de comenzar, para intentar localizar posibles fallos, como durante el proceso, ya que todo es modificable y adaptable a las diversas situaciones, y al final del proceso para evaluar los resultados.

  232. Hoy en día hay muchos medios tecnológicos para proporcionar una buena enseñanza. Aunque creo que el debate no está en si los avances tecnológicos son positivos o negativos para impartir una buena educación, sino en si los docentes y dicentes saben utilizarlo como es debido para llevarlo a cabo.

  233. Domingo Jesús Carrasco Barrios dice: Responder

    Estamos en la Era de la Tecnología, en una sociedad en constante evolución e inmersos en una crisis económica que considero que ha frenado en seco la implantación de nuevas estrategias y materiales de enseñanza digitales que favorezcan los logros educativos de los futuros educandos. No es que considere que con esta nueva tecnología al servicio de la educación los resultados sean más óptimos, sino todo lo contrario, pienso que el responsable de trasmitir conocimientos es el profesor y los materiales, sean cuales sean, son algo secundario y sirven para apoyo de las clases. No dudo de que la digitalización de la sociedad es algo que está ocurriendo y favoreciendo todos los campos de la misma, pero si abogo por los profesionales motivadores con facilidad de recursos, empáticos, prácticos y sobre todo humanos.

    Pienso que hoy en dia un docente cuenta muchos recursos para impartir la clase. Si comparamos los recursos de hoy en dia con los de hace diez años, vemos que antes solo había una pizarra y libros de textos, hoy contamos con ordenadores en las aulas, proyectores. pizarras digitales… y pienso que con estas novedades, el alumno aprende menos, porque es mas fácil que se distraiga o por ejemplo con la moodle, generalizando un poco, a los alumnos la moodle nos encanta, ¿porque? por que si un día no queremos asistir a clase, nos encontramos las diapositivas y los apuntes de clase hay subido, y esto es un motivo por el cual los alumnos aprendemos menos. ¿Como enseñan los docentes hoy en día? en el caso de alguno no me preguntaría el cómo enseñan si no me preguntaría si de verdad enseñan.

  235. Alba Azogil Buenaventura dice: Responder

    Bajo mi punto de vista hoy en día contamos con muchos recursos didácticos en las aulas, considero que es algo que complementa y ayuda al docente a enseñar al alumnado. No considero que estos recursos sean indispensables ya que hace unos años no existían y el alumnado salía mejor preparado. Por tanto, pienso que el docente tiene que tener sus clases preparadas antes de enfrentarse a su alumnado, buscar estrategias que a su alumnado le atraiga les resulte atractiva sus clases… y utilizar dichos recursos para ayudar a que aprendan de otra forma. Que haiga una mezcla entre la enseñanza tradicional e intercalando novedades didácticas para que no sea monótona la clase. Además las nuevas tecnologías están a la orden del día y es necesario saber manejar y hacer un buen uso de ellas.

  236. María Blanca Alfonso Alonso dice: Responder

    Pues es cierto que hoy en día las aulas, y con ellas, los profesores, cuentan con materiales y recursos didácticos que deben hacer las clases bastantes más amenas; hasta hace unos años, solamente estaban la pizarra y el libro de texto como recursos del docente; y aunque pensemos que las clases de ahora son más entretenidas por los materiales con los que se cuentan (ordenadores, pizarras digitales, etc) , quizás con tantos medios, los alumnos se distraen mucho más y no prestan la atención que debieran. Y antes, lo más seguro es que se aburrian más que en está época porque no tenían nada para motivarse en las clases.
    Con todo esto, creo que debe existir una mezcla entre la enseñanza tradicional y la de ahora, usar los medios de los que se disponen para que los alumnos puedan pasar un buen rato en clase y no estén deseando que acabe para salir y pensar “vaya clase he tenido de aburria y si lo sé no vengo”, las clases están para que las aprovechen y aprendan todo lo posible, también sin que lleguen a aburrirse. Para ello, el maestro o profesor tiene la clave, así que es el que debe asegurarse de que pasen un rato agradable y que por lo menos le saquen algo de provecho. Para acabar, sin duda el docente tiene que preparar sus clases y documentarse si lo necesita para que los alumnos salgan satisfechos de cada clase, sea cual sea la asignatura o el curso en el que se encuentren.

  237. Helena Wenzelová dice: Responder

    Textbooks, notes, and different materials from teachers are considered to be a basic stuff for students. Beginning teachers used to do the preparation for the classes at home in their free time. Experienced teachers already have their preparations for the classes and there is a possibility that they are not updating them very frequently. I am up for a way of teaching where the teacher regularly updates the study material and uses updated information as well. Students should learn about actual issues which are surrounding us and not only have basic knowledge of the subject based on the old definitions. There is currently a lot of information sources e. g. media, internet. Students should look for this information by themselves but when they are not interested in the subject they would rarely search for a particular information from the other sources. It is a teacher who can provide the students with a new and interesting iformation and this way to arise their interest in the topic.

  238. I think that not everyone is able to be a good teacher and on the other side I am sure that there are a lot of people who are not teachers, but would be very good teacher. This task is very individual. It really depends on the personal features and abilities.

    My personal experience is, that at the university the best “teachers” (or potential teachers) are the people from practise. I mean the managers, directos and so on and it does not matter if current or past. But I like if they have got a lecture and speaking about real and practical things and experiencies. I think that this is a way how to learn the students the most.

  239. Ángel Serrano Rodriguez dice: Responder

    Yo opino que los recursos para enseñar es algo que facilitaría bastante la tarea, son interesantes pero no indispensables, yo creo que eso no lo es todo, que los profesores tambien tienen que realizar una labor muy importantes y para que esos recursos sean efectivos deben saber utilizarlos, y si no consiguen sacarles partido esto se les podria poner en su contra. Por eso pienso que seria algo bueno pero hay que saber utilizarlos.

  240. Guillermo Saborido Quirós dice: Responder

    Pienso que para enseñar lo que se necesita es un buen ambiente de aprendizaje, ademas de que el profesor tiene que buscar las estrategias necesarias para motivar a los docentes, seguido de seleccionar la forma de aprender de una manera divertida y entusiasta que llame la atención de los alumnos provocando que los contenidos que se asimilan lleguen hasta dentro y no sean pasajeros.

  241. Manuel Rivera Suárez dice: Responder

    “muchos recursos pero poco aprendizaje” frase citada de Jordi Évole. Hoy en día, y tal como dice esta frase, contamos con numerosos recursos pero son indebidamente usados, la tecnología en el aula en mi opinión solo sirve de método de distracción en clases, pues cuando se usan ordenadores o similares el alumnado rara vez sigue al 100% las directrices del profesor. Más allá de si sea bien usado o no, contamos con que aun teniendo estos recursos, el profesor no sea capaz de compaginar los contenidos con estos recursos. Pero en cambio, si considero que el uso de numerosos recursos puede ser bien usado, y así, conseguir un método de aprendizaje lucrativo e interactivo con el cual el alumno aprende a la vez que se divierte.

  242. Jesus Maria Lopez Munoz dice: Responder

    En lo referente al diseño de actividades y materiales, hemos tenido un referente bastante vago, ya que en nuestros primeros años de aprendizaje, eso de elaborar algo era una tontería, ya que disponíamos de la “sagrada biblia” que nos facilitaba la editorial Anaya sobre diferentes competencias. Gracias al trabajo de algunos profesores este pensamiento está comenzando a des enquistarse de las mentes de futuros profesionales de la docencia y así pienso que debe ser, por el bien de nuestros futuros discentes.

  243. Manuela García Reyes dice: Responder

    En mi opinión, de nada sirve que un maestro cuente con toda clase de recursos sino es está comprometido con su tarea de docencia, es decir, el no preparar sus clases, el no motivar al alumnado, el no transmitir el entusiasmo por aprender nuevos conocimientos, el no facilitar o adecuar contenidos(adaptaciones curriculares)… Los recursos ayudan a que toda esta labor se pueda conseguir con más facilidad y de una forma más eficiente, pero es sin duda el maestro quien debe tener conciencia del “yo maestro”,y con ésto me refiero a la responsabilidad, seguridad, compromiso que debe tener y transmitir a sus alumnos.

  244. Being a teacher is very hard job if you want to be a good one. If you just step in front of the class and say what you have to say that is easy. But then you definitely did not do your job as you should. For teacher is very important to know their pupils and adjust program to their needs. Teacher should be aware that kids are different and they have different needs. That it why is so important to use in class different ways of teaching, so every child can connect with the subject. Teacher should know how to motivate their pupils and how to catch their attention. Things that kids mention in the video were generally connected with relationship between them and the teacher – this must be honest, trustful and respectful.

    En los tiempos que corren tenemos la gran ventaja de contar con recursos novedosos y llamativos que hacen posible una educación más llevadera y atractiva para los alumnos.
    El buen profesor es el que se prepara sus clases y piensa en sus alumnos, en como hacerle mas facil y llevadero el dia a dia.
    En mi opinión he de decir que unas actividades llamativas y en la cual los alumnos se involucran hacen posible la captación de más información que horas teorias. Esto hace mucho más facil la tarea de estudiar ya que si algo es divertido se recuerda durante mucho tiempo.

    Yo pienso, que los profesores deben utilizar las nuevas tecnologías para poder hacer que los niños estén mas interesados en las clases y no se aburran. Hay muchos vídeos por los que se pueden enseñar cualquiera de los objetivos que se desee conseguir en cualquier unidad didáctica y muchos mas medios.
    Pero aunque el profesor utilice todos los medios posibles, si no es cercano a los alumnos y no les da confianza es muy difícil que estos tengan interés en las clases.

  247. When I saw this video I am starting to think how I imagine good teacher. What kind of teacher I want to become one day. Good teacher has two-way communication with his students. He is friendly and close to them. He is aware that he doesn’t just teach them but also educate. He represent them a model so he has to, with his behavior, give them a good example. He has to know how motivate them for work. He is listening them and trying to help them at school or other problems. He has to be equitable (sometimes is this very difficult). Beside this personal characteristic he also has a good knowledge about things he teach and about his job. He has to communicate well with his collaborator and parents.
    So to be a good teacher you also have to be good listener, friend, psychologist, adviser and much more.

    Para ser profesor, primero hay que tener una formación universitaria previa, en la cual, se adquieren una serie de conocimientos y métodos didácticos con los cuales transmitir los conceptos y las informaciones pertinentes a los alumnos. No obstante, la formación de un profesor no acaba aquí. Su formación ha de ser continua y permanente, dentro y fuera del aula: no solo tiene que enseñar, sino que, a la vez, tiene que aprender de sus alumnos. El problema, es que muchos profesores, bien por inconciencia o por incompetencia, no saben hacer esto último, y en cuanto se ven obligados a enfrentarse a la realidad de que, quizás, lo que has aprendido durante tu formación no está siendo útil, es cuando realmente surgen los problemas.

    Con todo esto lo que quiero decir es que, al final, se necesita algo más que una serie de métodos o normas para ejercer la labor de enseñar.

    I think that being a teacher is a really hard and responsible job. You have to be patient, able to get through to students, have a sense of humor, have a true calling and be basically all those things that were mentioned on the video. Unfortunately speaking from my experience as a student and also having colleagues choosing this career i have to say that there aren’t many teachers who have at least some of these features . Nowadays people are taking this path because of short hours of working and perks that comes with it (for example holidays). So when they have to finally teach you something they are just doing absolute minimum and go home happy that it’s over.

    Enseñar es la tarea fundamental que tiene como misión el maestro o profesor, pero no con solo cursar un grado de educación uno está apto para ejercer la enseñanza propiamente dicha.
    Para poder ejecutar la misión de enseñar a los demás, primero el educador debe formarse bien y adquirir todas las competencias posibles para una mejor ejecución en su trabajo, enseñar.
    Para llevar a cabo la enseñanza, debe organizar una serie de actividades que fundamenten e inculquen una serie de objetivos, contenidos, competencias básicas y valores, todo bien enmarcado dentro de una temporalización organizada, y un buen y correcto uso de los materiales a los que pueda acceder. Pero lo que realmente debe tener claro un educador debe ser la metodología que vaya a utilizar a la hora de cumplir con su trabajo, ya que a partir de la misma deberá tomar la postura más idónea para atender a las necesidades de sus alumnos y acercar los conocimientos a los mismos.

  254. Hmmm my perfect teacher would be that in the beging tell us what he expectat from us. Than that he has a goal to teach all the same never mind if he like the child more or less. So for me is also very important that he’s friendly and have interesting lectures in which you can enjoy. They have to have authority because with out that he’s nothing and if he have this children will lisent to them. Like they said in they video they alo have to have a sense of humour firm, but fair, good communicator, responsive, inspirational…

    I have to tell you about some teacher that I had elementary school he was teaching me history and because of him I love history. He was talking in such a passion that I literally eat their words.
    He explane us every thing like he was living in stone Age or in Romans time so in my opinion he was the best.

    Tambien podemos decir que hay muchas formas de dar clase, las hay incluso que aburren a los alumnos, pues, hay muchas alternativas para poder hacerlas divertidas o no tan monótonas.
    Por lo tanto, creo que deberían utilizar otro tipo de recursos como proyectores, videos, imágenes, etc

Creo que todo maestro deberia se inteligente a la hora de preparar sus clases porque con los medios actuales podrian convertirse en una gran ayuda para este, mejorando su tipo de clase y ayudando a que los alumnos lo entiendan mejor.
    Hay que tener en cuenta que no solo de los medios se sirve sino que el maestro es quien debe buscar analizar y preparar esa informacion recogida en muchisimos y diversos medios, como es internet, enciclopedias, videos, libros…
    Para mi es importante que se utilice de manera mas regular, pero siempre teniendo en cuenta que quien sabe y quien debe llevar la clase tiene que ser el maestro.

  257. In this article I recognize a lot. My mother is a teacher and she also like to use different curriculum materials. It helps the student to be innovative and the teacher to optimize the positive character in the teaching and for the student personal learning. I only think that a teacher has a lot to do in class. Like I said in my last article, you have the instructions from the government, the rules of the school, social pressure and a lot to teach the children. You must be creative as a teacher to do this all but most of the time they will.

    Beside that there are a lot of tools you can use now as a teacher to put into your teaching style. I think it is useful you go along with the time. We have a lot of digitalizing and children know how to use it. Maybe it is time for the teachers to use it in there classes.

    Ιn my opinion, when a teacher plans a lesson he should take into account the following things:
    Firstly, he has to set specific goals to achieve. The knowledge he wants students to take, the other abilities he wants to cultivate, etc.
    Secondly, he has to think of the subject itself, as well as a good way of teaching it, in order to help students understand.
    Thirdly, he must have in mind their special needs, their level, the knowledge they need to take, their personal learning style, skills and interests.
    Finally, he must try to adapt the lesson to all these and also not to spend time in irrelevant things.

    Los medios para enseñar, han cambiado a lo largo de la historia, pero no creo que la manera de enseñar también lo haya hecho. Desde siempre ha habido maestros que han querido enseñar a su manera, teniendo el medio como algo externo, de apoyo y cogiendo lo que realmente cree que es más interesante, y otros que sin el medio no han sido nada.

    Ahora bien, ¿quién lo hace mejor?. Pues yo pienso que a la hora de enseñar hay que tener claro qué, cómo y cuándo se debe hacer a lo largo del curso, hay que realizar una planificación, teniendo en cuenta el soporte material y los medios propios de cada uno como maestro. Aunque lo realmente esencial será siempre trasladar a los alumnos algo que terminen comprendiendo correctamente, se les explique de la manera que sea. Claro está, siempre desde un punto motivador y de la forma más lúdica para un mayor afianzamiento de conceptos.

    Cada profesor ha de elaborar su intervención educativa en el aula mediante el diseño de actividades y materiales educativos no solo basarse en los materiales que tiene elaborados, sino investigar y confeccionar nuevos materiales adaptados a sus nuevas circunstancias y alumnos. Pero ¿qué pasa con el que no lo hace? Nada. La respuesta es clara, los profesores que cogen el libro y dan la clase “casi” leyendo el material, son abundantes y todos lo hemos experimentado. ¿Es justo que por esto, muchos niños tengan que buscarse formas de aprendizaje alternativas? No, pero sucede. Por lo que solo puedo decir: NO CAIGAMOS EN EL TÓPICO DEL PROFESOR “PASIVO” y evolucionemos en nuestras formas de enseñar.

  261. Creo que el maestro/a no debe escatimar en la utilización de todos los recursos que tenga a su alrededor, los recursos en sí mismo no son rechazables, ya que cada uno en su medida pueden ayudarnos en nuestra labor docente.
    Estoy de acuerdo con los limites planteados en la entrada, los recursos deben de ser coherentes con el proyecto curricular del centro y con el entorno como bien dices, debe haber diversidad entre ellos, ya que a lo hora de diseñar actividades, el abanico de presentación, formato, realización y resolución del trabajo planteado será mucho más amplio y atractivo. Un recurso puede ser bueno, pero abusar del mismo puede condicionar el éxito de este.
    En general todos los recurso son utilizables, los editoriales también pero no se puede plantear como recursos únicos, ni si quiera creo yo como el principal. El docente al conocer de primera mano la realidad de sus alumnos, puede y debe adaptar cualquier recurso o material adaptado a esa realidad.

    La importancia de las actividades llevadas a cabo por el docente, es tan grande que de ahí conoceremos si el discente ha captado toda la información que se pretendía. Estas actividades tienen que estar adaptadas al alumno, y teniendo en cuenta su nivel. Eso sí, las actividades no se deben utilizar para “matar el tiempo” una vez que el profesor haya terminado su explicación.
    Por mi parte, creo conveniente que en la etapa de la Educación Primaria se lleven a cabo más actividades grupales, es decir, que se fomente una buena relación entre los compañeros y a su vez mejore el clima de trabajo de la clase, ya que eso producirá que a lo largo de nuestra etapa laboral nos encontremos con personas que sea un placer trabajar con ellos y otras que odiaremos por su individualidad.
    Para finalizar, quiero hacer saber que ya existen páginas web donde se comparten actividades entre distintos profesores. Pero no es un regalo que te sirve para quitarte trabajo, sino que para poder descargar algunas actividades, es necesario que hayas subido otras. Esto proporciona al profesor una mayor variedad a la vez que contribuye a que otros profesores posean otras actividades.

    To be the best specialist firstly it is required to love your job. For some teachers their job is just the way to earn some money. But others are trying to teach and make their lessons interesting and giving benefits for children as much as it is possible. There are a lot of types of materials to make the lessons more interesting, encouraging students to learn. It is more involving in a learning process when a teacher combines traditional and modern ways to prepare for the lesson especially in this technology age.
    I totally agree with the children opinions in a video about a good teacher. He has to be involved in his subject, understand children and make them to wait for the next lesson.

    Por otra parte, estoy totalmente de acuerdo con el apartado de los criterios fundamentales para la elaboración de materiales curriculares. Este apartado sirve de gran ayuda para cualquier docente y de estos criterios me gustaría destacar los que para mí resultan más importantes de todos ellos que son: 1. la coherencia, 2. Rigor científico, 3. diversidad de materiales, y como cuarto, último y más importante (en mi opinión) es la reflexión sobre valores.

    En definitiva lo que este artículo intenta es hacernos entender que necesitamos una serie de materiales para optimizar y estimular la actividad del alumno pero además de estos es necesario el buen uso que el docente realiza de ellos.

El buen maestro prepara sus clases con materiales tradicionales, que tiene aprendida la lección y la explica con seguridad.

Creo que todo docente se tiene que preocupar mas en formarse como buen profesor y persona que en lo que debera enseñar cuando llegue la hora de impartir clase

  269. Being a teacher is one of the hardest thing ever. To be a good teacher you need to have a great nerve system and you need to be ready for every possible situation. Nowadays it is really hard to be a good teacher. I have seen a lot of teachers running out of classes crying, especially, those are teachers who teaches young children, from 1 – 5 grade. Children are getting harder to control, if you know how to control them, without being rude, it is first step to become a great teacher. Another criteria, how you can know if you are a good teacher is students’ activity. If there is students who writes you and wants to keep in touch with you, then you know, you’re a great teacher. This video is really great, and I think to become a better teacher it is necessary to listen to the students.

    Estoy de acuerdo en que debemos utilizar materiales para un mayor entendimiento de los alumnos, pero siempre los indicados y correctos, aquellos con lo que el profesor sienta que puede expresar con mayor claridad y efecto lo que quiere que llegue a sus alumnos.
    También hay que decir que hay medios que alejan al profesor de sus alumnos y que éste adquiere un papel secundario y ésto tampoco se debe permitir ya que el principal medio de comunicación debe ser el docente apoyado claro está por materiales pero no al contrario, es decir, en aulas que se trabajan con ordenadores y prestan más atención a éste que a lo que de verdad importa que es aprender por medio de la figura del maestro.

    La profesión de un maestro no es sólo lo que se ve, no es sólo el impartir clases a un grupo de alumnos; antes de esto, el docente tiene que haber preparado su clase: qué va a dar, cómo lo va a dar y qué materiales va a utilizar.
    Tiene que desarrollar una unidad didáctica, que es una especie de guion o programación de las cosas que va a hacer.
    Para poder desarrollar una unidad didáctica hacen falta unos materiales educativos, que son aquellos instrumentos que ayudan a la comprensión al alumno de un determinado aprendizaje, como por ejemplo fichas, vídeos… Muchas editoriales vienen ya con sus propios materiales didácticos y hay maestros, que debido a la falta de tiempo, cogen esos mismos. Para mi punto de vista, creo que esto no es bueno. Pienso que un maestro debería utilizar los materiales que él crea precisos, teniendo en cuenta el contexto en el que conviven sus alumnos, sus tipos de alumnos, etc. O bien, podría ayudarse de las editoriales, pero solo eso, ayudarse, y coger aquello que le haga falta.
    Por otra parte, pienso que el docente en ningún momento debe quedarse escaso de recursos. Con esto me refiero a que quizás algún alumno/s termine cualquier actividad antes y no es conveniente que “se quede con los brazos cruzados”. El maestro debe estar preparado para todo y en cualquier momento tener otra actividad a realizar para el alumno.
    Para un aprendizaje mayor y más eficaz, los materiales educativos tienen que revisarse constantemente, ver si realmente a los alumnos esos recursos les benefician en su educación o no y en base a esto adaptarlos. A esto se le denomina evaluación.
    Hay ocasiones que el problema del aprendizaje no es de estos materiales educativos, no es de los alumnos; el problema es de los maestros que no manejan de manera adecuada estos materiales. Como dice en el texto, no se trata de que los materiales más innovadores sean los mejores y los más tradicionales peores, solo se trata de saber utilizarlos de forma correcta. Pero lo que sí es cierto, es que los alumnos de esta generación en lo que mejor se desenvuelven son en las nuevas tecnologías, y por ello pienso que los maestros deberían hacer cursos para innovarse y así poder aplicar sus conocimientos aplicando estos nuevos medios. Creo que de esta forma muchos alumnos aprenderán las cosas de una manera más amena y contextualizada.

    Los maestros deben preparar sus materiales para dar la clase, para ello se apoyarán seguramente en libros, enciclopedias, etc. Algunos utilizan los libros como apoyo y ellos amplían, reducen y corrigen información que no consideren adecuada, pero otros toman el libro como único material y basan sus clases solo en él; sin corregir, aumentar ni reducir información.
    En la actualidad, con todas las tecnologías que disponemos, los maestros deberían apoyarse en varios recursos como power points que motiven a los alumnos, vídeos, …..

  273. Actualmente los maestros tienen una amplia cantidad de materiales con los que pueden trabajar,ademas de actividades extra escolares, y muchos otros medios como son ordenadores, pizarras electrónicas,…. todo esto es una mejora que nadie hubiera previsto hace 60 años pero creo que no es del todo necesario, que es un derroche, por ejemplo los centros TIC, yo estudie un uno 4 años y la verdad que no me aporto gran cosa. Pienso que la educación se puede mejorar innovando con los instrumentos que se utilicen pero hacia otra dirección. En vez de ordenadores los centros podrían invertir por ejemplo en clases mas practicas para obtener una mejor calidad de enseñanza. Aun así opino que todo esto es bueno para la educación, para que se vaya modernizando y evolucionando poco a poco, todo progreso es bueno y necesario para llegar a una mejora del sistema educativo.

  274. Gema Rodríguez Llagas dice: Responder

    Yo pienso que hay muchas maneras de enseñar y también que se puede mejorar otras formas de dar clases. Hoy en día es difícil enseñar y captar la atención de los alumnos, ya que tienen más distracciones, aunque eso se puede evitar utilizando otros métodos de enseñanza, utilizando un material adecuado que capte más la atención del alumno. Aunque esto no puede ser utilizado por el profesor sobre la marcha, sino que tiene que tenerlo todo planeado antes, o al menos eso es lo que se debería de hacer. El problema está en que el alumno no aprende si no va a clase, y para que vaya hay que captar su atención haciendo que se anime a ir y a participar en la enseñanza dada y en el temario, así puede poner más interés y aprender más. Ya que cuando a alguien algo le gusta, le es más fácil seguirlo que a quien no.

  275. Bajo mi punto de vista, hoy en día es una suerte contar con una amplia gama de materiales con los cuales un maestro puede impartir sus clases pero ¿es eso del todo necesario?
    En mi opinión no lo es, ya que nunca un ordenador podrá enseñar conocimientos mejor que un maestro aunque nos pueda dar mucha más información; ya que la tarea de un maestro no consiste sólo en dar información sino en que sus alumnos entiendan esa información, es decir, no es lo que se da, sino cómo se da, ya que un maestro a través de ejemplos, anécdotas y otros mecanismos pueden hacer que los alumnos capten mejor la información que a través de google por ejemplo.
    En definitiva pienso que si, que es mejor optar o poder utilizar diferentes recursos para enseñar, pero dichos recursos hay que saber utilizarlos, y otra cosa muy importante es no dejar a un lado los materiales tradicionales como el libro,una visita a un museo… sino que se deben complementar tanto nuevas como antiguas tecnologías para el perfeccionamiento del método de enseñanza.
    Un buen maestro es aquel capaz de enseñar de manera atractiva y entretenida utilizando elementos curriculares nuevos y tradicionales.

    If you are a teacher, you have to appeal to all of the students although there is a known fact that everybody differs from each other in one way or another, that is why being a teacher seems to be a very difficult job. In my opinion, a person who REALLY wants to be a teacher, shoud be a teacher. In one of my educational classes in my home university, the professor asked us a question “Who wants to work as a teacher after graduation?”. Only 2 students (one of them was me) raised their hands from 74 students. 72 of them were studying education but they did not want to be a teacher after graduation. Most of the students entered university because their exam grade to get into the university was enough to study education but they did not want to be a teacher, which is a real dilemma. However, being a teacher requires more than this. Therefore, the people who really deserve, should be a teacher.

    Si hay algo bastante claro es que los niños en las aulas se suelen aburrir, captar la atención de un niño no es tarea fácil y si tienes delante de ti a 20 aún menos, de ahí la necesidad de cambiar el entorno de las clases de vez en cuando y sacarlos de las aulas o usar otro material más innovador y aparcar a veces el libro de texto de toda la vida. Un niño con interés por algo es un universo de querer saber

  278. Being a teacher is not an easy thing to do. A teacher has many responsibilities and many things to do. Thinking about and preparing teaching units, lesson plans,objectives, special needed students, best activities that fit into the curriculum, and all of things can happen in the class. A teacher always has a plan B if plan A does not work. Among all these duties teacher should choose activities and materials according to children’s level. Activities should make children to think about the concept and make them curious. Teacher should be creative and be enthusiastic for teaching process. Also, they should be aware of the needs of new generation, choose the most modern strategy for teaching and learning process and include technology in their classroom.

    Siempre un buen maestro escapa de la rutina y hace suyas las clases día a día. Los alumnos agradecen, aunque a ves no directamente, estas variaciones en la programación que aportan dinamismo y frescura a la clase.
    En los últimos años se ha mejorado este aspecto introduciendo el término “TIC” a las aulas; la incorporación del material informático a las clases ha ayudado, como elemento añadido, a llevar a cabo ejercicios o tareas que antes no se podían realizar sino eran la propia casa de cada educando.
    Los educadores se han aprobechado de esta mejora enormemente, incluso basando su clase en ella, sin embargo, no son los único métodos o elementos que el maestro tiene a su alcance.
    A fin de cuentas, y bajo mi punto de vista, se deben usar diferentes estrategias para conseguir en cada clase llegar al alumno de la manera mas eficaz posible.

    I find the best teachers to be those who are really interested in what they are teaching, because you can really feel their enthusiasm. Qualities in a teacher that i also find valuable is; respect for the children, humor, strict but fair and that they dont put themself on a higher level than the students. When studying in the university i find the lectures that are oustide the curriculum to be the most interesting, that is when i really feel that i learn something valuable. Other students may think that those lectures are a waist of time because it has nothing to do with the ultimate goal; the exam.. There are endless possibilities when deciding how to teach, but every child have a different mind, is it possible to trigger everyone of them? Obviously teaching is a very hard profession, you have the educational part but also the huge social part to have in mind at all times..

    No matter how you are capable of your area,If you dont know how to teach in a prolific way it doesnt make sense.As one of the students said,for breaking the chain of routine,”sense of humous !!is one of the indispensibles I think.Not only sharing his knowledge about current subject,working like an advisor is one of the duties of teacher so the ability of ”good communicating” is also really important. İf student/s/ feel readiness of the teacher ,they may share both direct and indirect problems about their learning process easily so being ”approachable ‘is among my main components.When it comes to my own idea ,the sense of responsibility is more important than any other point. If teacher doesnt perform his best while teaching ,how can he expect his students to feel their responsibility while daing tasks?

  283. Fredrika von Braun dice: Responder

    I think that teacher must be creative. They can not only work with the material, like the books for example. Teachers need time and space to planning the lessons from the curriculum, from the students interests, from their own way to inspire and from the material, and from that make it their own way to teach. This is not an easy thing to do and most of the teachers don’t have time for this. I think this is one of the biggest problems when the education has bad quality. Teacher misses time to be creative and to plan their lessons with enthusiasm. It is much easier to just work with the text book every week. They don’t get paid for planning really good lessons in the evening before they go to bed, from home. So why should they do that? Teaching is a work, not a lifestyle and all people, even teachers deserve their spare time.

    A good teacher approaches the student as to his partner. Authority cannot build through the distribution of notes and bad marks. He tries to take students to approach them substance can estimate their abilities and hasn’t too high demands, not least he doesn’t infallible of himself, can admit a mistake, or that they know anything. Obviously, such an approach requires more intensive preparation and a certain degree of talent than come to class and have students rewrite most hours from the board. Teaching isn’t ordinary job, it’s the creative process. Each student is different, every class has a different composition, each time it’s necessary to devise a new strategy instruction.

    Opino que un buen profesor es aquel que además de preparar el temario de la clase que va a realizar, lo hace de una forma innovadora y amena, ya que está demostrado que un alumno que disfruta con la clase aprende mejor (los contenidos se fijan más) que aquel que solamente escucha lo que el profesor está explicando. Además creo que el educador debe preparar sus clases con las diferentes tecnologías que se puedan aplicar, como por ejemplo el uso de las ppt, videos… ya que éstas están a la orden del día.
    Como conclusión decir que una buena clase debe posibilitar la adquisición de nuevos conocimientos y afianzar los que ya se tienen, además de desarrollar la personalidad del educando.

    creo que cualquier maestro, siempre debe de estar innovando,creando, aprendiendo de sus propios errores y de los propios alumnos. pienso que hoy en día un maestro innovador no tiene porque estar ligado a la tecnología, si se puede apoyar en ella, pero un buen maestro es aquel que con un folio en blanco es capaz de explicar la materia.
    Un buen maestro es quien domina currículum, evaluación y métodos para la enseñanza, pero las adapta para que les sirvan a sus alumnos. los materiales utilizados deben de estar adaptados a los tiempos actuales para que así los alumnos puedan adaptarlos a su vida cotidiana. Un buen maestro es quien se propone como meta que todos sus alumnos aprendan, que vayan a sus clases y no pierdan el interés por la materia.
    el maestro debe de valerse de su experiencia para enriquecer el conocimiento de sus alumnos. el maestro que se dedica a solo leer el libro, ppt, etc. para mi no es un buen maestro, porque cualquiera es capaz de hacer eso. todo maestro debe de motivar a sus alumnos a estudiar y darle las pautas para que les sea más fácil.

    I believe teachers like this are an example that there are people who are interested in guiding the younger for a correct future, away from the traditional way of teaching. Changing the curriculum to help students way of thinking will be an evolution and will help teachers and children to come closer and bring out new examples to the world. The traditional way of teaching should be changed and a new approach should be taken . An approach which will prepare children for the future differently, in a way that they will know what to do and how to do it. Learn correct reasearch and enjoy it. Create projects to find hidden talents. Award the children with reflective comments to encourage them. Help them find an orientation if the teacher sees the talent first. For example, in a drawing class. ! Such Teachers should be examples and they will be respected, becasue what go’s around come’s around. What i mean is when somebody does something with their heart there will be a turning point and rewards. The rewards would be for the teacher and society, bright minds who think differently because their education was different.

    Yo pienso que un buen maestro es aquel que prepara sus clases, que tiene un método y unos recursos bien definidos. Sí, están los libros de texto y otros muchos recursos que puede utilizar el profesor para guiarse, para hacer actividades o ejercicios, pero este también tiene que ser innovador, crear sus propias ideas, ya que los libros no están adaptados a cada uno de los alumnos, ya que cada clase y cada alumno es un mundo, puesto que el profesor debe saber desarrollar su clase en función de las necesidades de sus alumnos. Opino que es importante aprovechar los recursos y materiales educativos que nos brinda la sociedad de hoy día, pero aquellos buenos maestros son esos que, además de estos medios, tienen y saben sacar provecho de los suyos propios.

    Pienso que hoy en día hay muchas herramientas en las que poder apoyarse a la hora de enseñar, pero el buen maestro es aquel capaz de transmitir información a sus alumnos, captando su atención, sin necesidad de estos materiales. ¿Qué te enseña un power point? Creo que nada. En este caso, surge la figura del maestro, el cual te enseña a comprender ese ppt, ya que por sí solo no transmite nada. Me parece estupendo que los maestros tengan un soporte como un libro, ordenador, ppt,… con los que secundar una clase, repito, secundar. Debemos tener suficientes conocimientos para que el alumnado haya aprendido significativamente los contenidos dados en clase.
    Tanto los materiales tradicionales como los modernos, son un apoyo más. A mi parecer, debemos hacer un equilibrio entre ellos, sacando lo mejor de cada uno y ofreciéndole al alumnado buenos instrumentos para que aprendan de una manera entretenida y sin hacer clases monótonas y aburridas.

    Un maestro ha de estar preparado para el diseño de actividades y materiales educativos. Es cierto que no es suficiente con la preparación que hace un maestro para su propia intervención educativa, pero al igual, pienso que éste tiene que ser capaz de desarrollar un “método” a seguir y, de esta manera, lograr un objetivo propuesto de antemano. Tal “método” podría ser crear nuevas actividades y nuevos materiales educativos e innovar de este modo.

    En el aprendizaje por parte de los alumnos es preciso un nuevo énfasis, debido al gran crecimiento de información útil, y la rapidez con que pasa de moda. Por ello, considero que sería importante tener la habilidad de inventar, diseñar, crear, proponer…nuevos ejercicios y materiales educativos propios. Así, podría dar buen ejemplo a los niños y demostrarles que si tú has sido capaz, ellos también pueden ser capaces.

    Desde mi punto de vista, pienso que es igual de importante que el alumno vaya a las clases como que el profesor prepare éstas. Parece una exageración, pero creo que si el profesor no prepara una clase y va con el libro y manda las actividades marcadas, ¿para qué queremos un profesor?.
    El buen docente deberá preparar muy bien sus clases y decidir las cosas que se van a dar, cómo y en qué momento.
    Al mandar las actividades a sus alumnos deberá decidir si éstas son óptimas para que las realice, y realizar un estudio y una preparación de los temas que se van a dar en clase para ofrecerlo después a sus educandos.

    Today it’s really difficult to find teachers who really want to teach and help pupils to evolve their thinking, I think. Other causes that make that it’s hard to find great teachers are qualities required. In my opinion, the main quality is passion. It is very important if teachers are passionate about what they are teaching. Teachers with passion inspire pupils. They get pupils interested and even excited about what they are learning. Passion is what makes pupils decide to study more. Good teachers exhibit expertise in the subjects they are teaching and spend time continuing to gain new knowledge in their field. There are a lot of other things which make good teacher. I think that every teacher should have a little bit of everything.

    Los docentes deben preparar sus propios materiales, sabemos que están los libros y muchos otros recursos pero debemos tener en cuenta que una clase no es igual a otra, ya que hay personas diferentes con necesidades distintas y que les puede venir bien que los maestros expliquen con unos medios o con otros. Hay muchos materiales y se deben usar los que más se adecuen o más efectivos sean para enseñar.
    Lo importante es que con los medios más innovadores o tradicionales los niños comprendan la materia y aprendan, que es la finalidad para la que el maestro prepara los materiales.

  294. Cristina Inm Rivero Márquez dice: Responder

    Desde mi punto de vista, creo que el buen docente es aquel que prepara sus clases antes de asistir a ellas, es decir el buen profesor es aquel que prepara sus clases días antes en su casa o su lugar de trabajo, para cuando llegue el día de impartir la clase a sus alumnos este profesor sea capaz de explicar con mayor exactitud y más claramente el tema a sus alumnos, puesto que el tema a tratar ya lo va a tener preparado y machacado. Pienso también que el buen docente es aquel que utiliza todo tipo de tecnologías para enseñar a sus alumnos y también todo tipo de métodos, es decir, desde enseñar a los niños con los métodos antiguos, es decir, los tradicionales de toda la vida hasta las nuevas tecnologías ( ordenadores, internet … ), sobre todo hay que tener en cuenta esto último y hacer hincapié en estas nuevas tecnologías y enseñar a el niño a que aprenda a utilizarlas, puesto que en los tiempos que estamos, esas tecnologías son las que están a la orden del día y ya quien no sabe utilizarlas de forma base, es casi como si no supiera leer y escribir.

    Pienso que es fundamental que un maestro/a debe conocer distintas formas de diseñar una actividad, haciéndola lo mas activa posible y atractiva, que sea motivante, que refleje aspectos reales de la vida, que se puedan modificar según el tipo de alumno (flexibilidad). Mientras exista un cocktail de métodos tradicionales y nuevos elementos curriculares, opino que seran diseñadas actividades mas completas y eficaces.

    Un buen docente es aquel que utiliza los recursos necesarios para conseguir que los alumnos interioricen los contenidos sin aburrirse, de una manera dinámica y participativa. El maestro debe ser capaz de mantener viva la llama de las ganas de aprender, aprender y seguir aprendiendo, para lo cual existen variedad de recursos y actividades como se cita en el texto.
    Pero se trata de formar a personas. Bajo mi punto de vista, el buen docente hace ver a sus alumnos cual es la realidad en la que vivimos y las posibilidades que hay en ella para salir adelante. Queremos a gente emprendedora que sea capaz de desenvolverse en cualquier situación y momento y eso es algo que se va aprendiendo poco a poco a lo largo de la etapa escolar.
    Al igual que se seleccionan los contenidos que se van a impartir en el curso, deben seleccionarse los recursos y medios que se van a utilizar para ello.

  297. paula lopez delgado dice: Responder

    Creo que es un pilar fundamental en la enseñanza el saber enseñar y el querer aprender. Los materiales no sirven de nada si el docente no sabe utilizarlos de la mejor manera posible. De que sirve que uses nuevas tecnologías sino saben como enseñar a utilizarlas. Primero el docente debe saber utilizarlas y seguidamente saber como enseñar a lo niños a usarla de la mejor manera posible. El docente debe motivar a sus alumnos, preparándose sus clases detenidamente en casa y no llegar y solo plasmar en la pizarra lo que ya viene en el libro, porque si el docente se basa solo en lo que los libros dicen y no intenta explicarlo de otra manera para que el alumno pueda captar bien las ideas, ¿para que sirve en este caso el profesor? seria tan sencillo como comprar el libro y leerlo en casa. Si un docente no transmite ni se interesa por enseñar entonces no es un buen docente. Hay miles de maneras de motivar al alumnado ya sea con materiales tradicionales o nuevos, lo único que deben hacer es emplearlos bien.

    Pienso que un buen maestro debe utilizar, los recursos que el considere conveniente e ir intercambiándolos poco a poco para que los niños se adapten.
    Para mí un buen tipo de maestro es aquel que trata con los alumnos además de temas elementales, temas de la vida cotidiana. Todo esto intercalado con el uso de las nuevas tecnologías y los antiguos métodos de enseñanza, porque todo esto sería una buena fusión para el aprendizaje de los niños. Algo que yo no cambiaría nunca, es el corregir las actividades mandadas a los niños en la pizarra, me parece un buen método aunque sea antiguo, ya que las dudas surgidas pueden servir para todos. Ahora sí, hay que aceptar todos los métodos ya que aunque no sean del agrado de todas las personas, puede tener fines inconseguibles por otros tipos de métodos.

    A good teacher is one who has a big impact in the education of students and achieves – in general – success in teaching and educational work. If a teacher proves genuine interest in children’s work and will consciously take care of his own development as a human being and teacher, can achieve a lot, because the development of human capabilities is basically unlimited.
    A good teacher should have pedagogical intuition and tact, which consists of the ability to sense depth and appropriate to respond to the student. All students should be treated equally. A teacher should have the gift of observation and should be characterized by the ability of empathy, optimism, consistency, confidence, calmness and courage in action, especially in difficult situations. If a teacher wants pupils to respect him, he has to respect the child’s personality, be always reasonable, balanced and patient and should be their advisor.
    The basis of the authority of the teacher is also a thorough professional knowledge, teaching skills and high culture. The teacher should deepen their theoretical knowledge to improve their teaching methods, develop their culture and prevent routine, characterized by a high level of moral.

    En mi opinión, para conseguir una buena enseñanza a parte del buen comunicador que debe ser el maestro, influye los medios utilizados para llevarla a cabo.
    Los recursos didácticos, como nombra el texto ha de ser motivadores e innovadores, así cuanto mayores avances tecnológicos pueda disponer el maestro, mayor facilidad tendrá para poder captar la atención de sus alumnos y además el resultado de la clase será más dinámico. De esta forma, a los alumnos les costará menor esfuerzo aprender cosas nuevas y al mismo tiempo tendrá mayor interés por hacerlo.
    Sin embargo, también es cierto que un profesor que no utiliza métodos tan innovadores, que solo recurre al libro y métodos antiguos, tal vez transmita más que aquel lo emplee.
    Para concluir, los maestros deben seleccionar aquellos materiales que consideren que son mejores para conseguir el mayor aprendizaje posible.

  301. teacher needs ‘tools’ to be good one. his tools its curriculum materials. he has to know what purpose he wants achieve and later designates the way how to do this. he has to present his subject in interesting and varied way. its also important to have a passion to can ‘infect’ this the students. And try to be friendly have a contact with them but still know what you want to achieve. the movie where the students are talking its really interesting. it shows that the teacher should be friendly but resolute, with passion and willingness to transfer knowledge. they need be respect, and trust the teacher. its really difficult role. requires commitment and knowledge. teacher have to like his work without its impossible.

    Es muy importante para que se produzca una buena enseñanza el uso de múltiples materiales y recursos didácticos que ayuden a los alumnos a tener una mayor comprensión e interiorización de los conocimientos. Estos materiales o recursos tienen que estar adaptados a los tiempos actuales para que así los alumnos aprendan también a adaptarse a estos tiempos. Pero creo que la verdadera labor de enseñar y el que se produzca o no aprendizaje es función del maestro; si éste no sabe sacarle partido a los materiales educativos que tenga, por numerosos y modernos que sean, no le servirá de nada, ya que los recursos didácticos sólo constituyen un medio para la transmisión de conocimientos, no enseñan por sí solos.

  303. En mi opinión, todo educador deber seleccionar la materia que se tenga que impartir en una clase, ya que se debe de tener gran información de lo que se va a enseñar para que sea una clase más activa y que el maestro se sienta mucho más seguro de lo que está diciendo. Es una tarea difícil la de seleccionar unos ejercicios y una materia adecuada para los alumnos, ya que muchos alumnos quizás no se adapten a sus explicaciones ,ya que muchos alumnos tienen dificultades a la hora de aprender y para ello tiene que adaptar el contenido a todos los niños. Actualmente, existen muchos medios para que el contenido llegue con más facilidad a los educandos, todo docente debe adaptarse a las nuevas tecnologías para poder enfrentar todos los medios tanto los informáticos como los tradicionales.

  304. Entre todas las funciones que un maestro debe desempeñar dentro del aula, quizas la mas dificil sea la de escoger adecuadamente la tarea o las tareas que ayudaran a los niños a desarrollar una mas facil comprensión o un fuerte nivel de aprendizaje. Pienso que para los maestros debe de ser importante que sus alumnos, al acabar una clase, hayan sido capaz de captar todo lo que uno a querido decir y todo lo que ha querido explicar, por lo tanto estas tareas pueden ser dinámicas, amenas o pueden ser tareas en las que el propio alumno pueda participar directamente. Tener la atención de ellos es el primer paso para poder desarrollar una buena clase.

  305. First of all i have to say that i agree in a lot of things which the students have mentioned in the video. My experience as a student or pupil was if the teacher is fascinated and has a passion to his subjects which he taughts the lesson is very interesting and also inspired for the students.
    But the teacher has also to have a passion to work with other students and social skills. So it is not just about to have good marks in university for becoming a teacher it deals also with your social skills and your attidude to your yourself and other persons.
    In my opinion it is very important for a teacher to be open minded to people from around the world and to show to the people who are around you because a teacher is also a role model for the pupils and not just a person who teaches them with knowledge. In school it is not only about knowledge in a science way it is also about knowledge in a social and behaviour way.

    Bajo mi punto de vista, un buen maestro debe ser capaz de seleccionar los recursos convenientes para el mejor aprendizaje posible de sus alumnos. Además, dentro de esos recursos, todos mejorables como bien menciona el texto, el profesor debe hacer una selección rigurosa de los contenidos, ya que los alumnos deben tener una buena referencia para su aprendizaje. Sin duda, no es una tarea fácil y no todo el mundo es capaz de realizarlo de forma correcta; muchos alumnos tienen dificultades en el aprendizaje en alguna etapa de su vida debido a un inadecuado sistema de enseñanza de un maestro anterior.
    Esta selección de contenidos debe llevar presente en todo momento unos objetivos que el alumnado debe alcanzar y que son la base del curso.

    Pero lo más importante y en lo que se tiene que volcar un docente es en hacer un buen uso de estos recursos curriculares. El profesor tiene que estar motivado para enseñar a sus alumnos para conseguir estimular y despertar interes en estos, que es de la forma que mejor aprenden.

  309. Cristina Ruiz Pais dice: Responder

    Personalmente, pienso que un buen maestro es aquel que es capaz de que sus alumnos comprendan todo lo que se explica. Es cierto que en estos tiempos, existen muchísimos medios para hacer llegar la información pero ante todo, lo más importante es la figura del profesor, y es él quien debe de tener todos sus conocimientos bien adquiridos para poder enseñarlos. Estos medios tan solo serían una ayuda para transmitir la información al alumnado, consiguiendo así motivarlos más, hacer las clases mas amenas e interactivas, y finalmente, adquirir conocimientos de una manera mas fácil, atractiva y rápida.

    Es necesario adaptarse a las nuevas tecnologías y saber aprovecharlas al máximo, pero un buen maestro debe ser capaz de enseñar en cualquier tipo de situación, con o sin estas tecnologías. En cuanto a los libros de texto, pienso que son un negocio más. Están bien como guía de una asignatura pero tampoco debemos regirnos a ellos exclusivamente.

    Como ya he dicho antes, lo más importante es el maestro, y por ellos pienso que debe tener ciertas cualidades a parte de poseer todos los conocimientos necesarios. Para mí, unas buenas cualidades docentes serían la empatía, motivación, confianza, responsabilidad, vocación, seguridad, respeto y autocontrol.

    Pienso que lo esencial de un maestro es enseñar, ya sea con materiales tradicionales, modernos o con ninguno de ellos. Tanto uno como otro pueden servir pero siempre cuando el maestro sepa relacionarlos y utilizarlos a su explicación. Si un maestro no se prepara sus clases no le da importancia a que sus alumnos atiendan o muestres interés etc, ahí si es importante algún material ya sea tradicional o moderno, pero si el maestro si se preocupa da igual. Pienso que lo importante no es dar clase con un power point ni otras cosas, con el simple hecho de que un maestro sepa captar la atención de sus alumnos haciendo clases divertidas,difererentes, atrayentes etc es suficente,

  311. In my opinion a good teacher is the basic of education because he can create methods and ways of education which is very important for students. Good teacher should be helpful,friendly,enthusiastic,firm,fair,responsive and also inspirational. He should have a sense of humour and know how to communicate with students. He should have authority because it is useful for the relationship among the teacher and students. They can appreciate and respect him. His style of teaching should be interesting and catchy or interactive. His experience is utility and he is able to enrich knowledge which passes on students. I do not like when teacher is only reading some presentation. Everybody can do this. Good teacher should also motivate students to study. It is significant when teacher has wide outlook as well. Every teacher should understand teaching as a mission and that is why teachers are so important for our education.

    La finalidad del texto me ha parecido muy interesante , ya que para futuros maestros que ojala seamos , no solo nos muestras un modelo a seguir , sino que además para mi entender se puede percibir una critica para con esos maestros que creen que el mero hecho de la realización de un powert point (por poner un ejemplo) es un modelo eficiente de enseñanza.

    En el día de hoy, con la enseñanza en las aulas nos encontramos con una gran duda: ¿ técnicas modernas o técnicas tradicionales? Sabemos que estamos en un país y ante una sociedad que prefiere y quiere innovar en todo lo posible. Pero mi modesta opinión es que en el ámbito de la enseñanza, no debemos presumir de tener pizarras electrónicas, la última publicación del libro de conocimiento del medio o matemáticas de la editorial X o ordenadores para cada alumno. La base de todo esto es mucho más fácil y no se compra con dinero. Es un buen maestro, que se encargue de seleccionar, añadir o quitar la tarea adecuada para sus alumnos y que haga de sus clases algo productivo, captando la atención de sus alumnos mediante ejemplos del día a día, juegos o cualquier otra técnica. Para que ellos salgan del colegio con algo aprendido y lo más importante comprendido, no que sus clases se basen sólo en leer literalmente lo mencionado en los libros.
    El objetivo sería una integración de ambas con el propósito de mejorar la calidad de los aprendizajes, y por supuesto, sin olvidar, que el maestro deber ser susceptibles a los cambios que le depara la pedagogía moderna dado a que la globalización, la cibernética, la robótica y la informática lo exige. Así pues considero que el buen maestro es aquel que se ajusta a las transformaciones.
    “El maestro que intenta enseñar sin inspirar en el alumno el deseo de aprender está tratando de forjar un hierro frío” (Frase de Horace Mann, Educador estadounidense, primer defensor de la escuela pública).

    En mi opinión, pienso que el buen maestro o profesor es el que prepara sus clases, con materiales tradicionales, como incorporando materiales curriculares, es el que hasta con un papel en blanco y no un libro académico te transmite material suficiente como para desarrollar un tema. Todo buen maestro trae aprendida la lección del día, o incluso te cuenta anécdotas y aventuras para que la clase no sea tan aburrida, y con ello te despierta interés del tema, incluso te acabas enterando mejor con los ejemplos que te ha contado que con el material.
    Por ello concluyo, diciendo que hay que relacionarlo, intercalarlo, que tanto lo tradicional como lo nuevo se complemente y que con ello se haga la clase más amena y atractiva, que suscite el interés de los alumnos, tampoco que sea un maestro basado solo en lo cotidiano y tradicional, sino que mejore y prepare sus clases a la orden del día, basado en la actualidad y métodos nuevos haciendo que despierte las conciencias de los niños, y no que las aburra.
    Que no sea un maestro autoritario, basado en una idea fija, sino que influya en sus alumnos por motivaciones y conocimientos y experiencias nuevas.

    Una de las tareas más complicadas del maestro es elegir de forma adecuada el material que va a utilizar para enseñar a sus pupilos. Aunque no todos los maestros realizan esta tarea, en mi opinión deben examinar profundamente los materiales didácticos que utilizara en el aula. Creo que tanto los materiales curriculares tradicionales como los más modernos son validos, solo debemos sacar los mejor de cada uno de ellos y así elaborar un material propio que contenga las características fundamentales que deben tener.

  316. I can count one 2 hands how many good teachers I had during my schoolcareer. That’s not a lot if you know that we had more then 70 teachers in our lives. Those who I still remind are the teachers who can speak easily to you and explain tough courses easy and fun. A good teacher is for me also having a good ‘coach’. Someone who believes in you and don’t see his students as all the same humans, but they see and exept all the personality’s of his students. As a teacher you also need a patience, because not every student can get things right away. As teacher you need to give every student the time to learn and understand. I hope for myself that I can be one of those teachers, students will never forget!

    Yo creo que actualmente, existe esa indecisión en los maestros: enseñar con el modelo tradicional o introducir innovaciones curriculares. El Buen Maestro es aquel que es capaz de intercalar las dos opciones, es decir, que utiliza el modelo tradicional y que va intercalando novedades por el bien del alumno, evitando que las clases sean monótonas.
    De tal forma que tiene que haber un equilibrio entre los dos modelos, pero decantándose un poco más por los nuevos elementos curriculares.

  318. Simona Martinkutė dice: Responder

    If a teacher wants to attract, involve his/her student in subject first of all this teacher have to be satisfied with his/her job and talk not to walls but to them, also don’t ignore students’ ideas. I think to attract students’ attention can the diversity of teaching methods and using some media because when you see, hear and do the same things in the same way day by day it becomes not interesting anymore. However to make the brand new, valuable and at the same time engrossing activities and to prepare not boring material are time – consuming and demanding tasks. Of course… Yes, you’re right! It requires creativity as well! A teacher should do his best to communicate with students and make them think. Furthermore a teacher has to teach in this way that students will honour him/her but don’t feel fear of him/her.

  319. La necesidad de otros materiales para enseñar es evidente. Aparte de los libros de textos, que es verdad que nos aportan numerosa información, también es necesario contar con otros tipos de materiales durante la clase, como power points, imágenes… para que el alumno asuma mejor los contenidos. A ciertas edades, los niños no aprenden demasiado con libros de textos es más, se lo estudian de memoria y no son conscientes de lo que se están aprendiendo, sin embargo, si el profesor llega a clase con imágenes, powers point… a los niños les llama la atención, incluso llegarán a casa diciendo lo que han observado en clase y lo que han aprendido nuevo. Pienso que innovar un poco la clase con distintos materiales puede sacar más provecho al alumno.

  320. The comment i posted in the name of hendrik was mine (Lena Wilkending)
    His name and things were just still saved on my laptop because he was making the last comment on my laptop-sorry for the confusion;)

    A goood teacher can not be definded by just some characetristics. Of course it is right what the kids said that a teacher has to be firm but fair and that he has to have a lot of humor to make learning more fun and situations in class more easy. Teachers also have to be and that is really important respectful to their students,because if the teacher is respectful he gains respect too. What for me is the most important thing is that the teacher has to be self-intrinsic.He has to be motivated to teach the students and he has to be motivated to motivate each and everyone in his class. And so he has to develop many different strategies and methods to fullfill this aim.That is very important to me. He has to change his way of teaching everytime he realises that hes not taking everybody with him. Its on him to involve and motivate.He has to be entusiasthic and flexible to inspire their students.And that is something that no teacher could learn in his education, I think that is something you have if you love what you are doing and learn through life but that is nothing that could be learned.

  322. I think the most important four things a teacher has to offer are: competence in the subject, communication skills, authority and a organizing talent.
    I dont think every teacher should talk too much about things that arent related to the subject, like the meaning of life, morals and other stuff like that. I remember many teachers who did that, and i stopped listening closely to them because my parents and books told me sharper things about that. Also they are not meant to be my mentors in life, but in mathematics for example. Of course enthusiasm for the content and for teaching itself is also very important, as well as fairness and consistency as told in the video. Too much humour i see also critically, only in small portions to keep the awake. But the children have to realize that the teacher is in front of the class to teah things, not to entertain.

  323. I readed some of comments here and everything what I think about the good teacher was already said, I agree with my classmates.
    When we´re speaking about the good teacher, I always remember one my teacher from high school. She is nun. I didn’t believe, that the nun can learns me too much about the life. I think the sense of her teaching wasn´t in religion. She learns me like to be good person, she learns me about relationship between people, about moral behaviour, love and relationship between man and woman, how can I improve my personality.. Our lessons weren´t all the time about boring theoretical things, which I can read in books by myself. We were speaking about the life and sense of life. I think all of teachers have to be like her. They have to feel love and satisfaction for teaching. She learned me like to be better person, she listen to me and respect my own opinions. And this is the basic for all of kinds of education.

  324. What are the criteria for being a good teacher? In that video one of the student (Rick) talks about crucial point for that question. He said the good teacher is not who teaches a lot but who communicates a lot and try to understand students in every situation. I totally agree with that argument. First ability that teachers have to have is communication skills. If teacher is a good communicator everything else would came by itself. Good communicator would courage, inspire, improve student’s creativity and discover their own skills by communicating with them. As we are teacher candidates, we need to have special communication classes so when we become a teacher we would know how to communicate with students in every situation. And help them to improve their skills also solve their problems by themselves.

  325. To my mind there are seven really important things that make a good teacher.
    The joy of teaching, the ability to delight and inspire people, authority, justice, passion and pedagogical knowledge special knowledge.
    Of course some things are more important than others – every teacher should have a little bit of everything.But characteritics are connected, too.
    If you have a lot of knowledge about your subjects it is great. But if you don’t have the ability to delight and inspire your students it is much harder to equip them with knowledge.

  326. I think that’s how teachers conduct classes, whether they will be able to interest children to the subjects is an extremely important in a later consequences. Children are very creative, but they need a little help to be even more creative. I remember that once I loved physics, becouse my teacher was really great and also creative and she really could teach us very well, but also was demanding. Actually, thanks to her, becouse I became interested in the subject, because she could in an interesting way to talk about it. But I respect her, so that’s why I learned very well. later our headteacher changed teacher and everything suddenly changed, I did not have such enthusiasm anymore. I think that first of all is how we learn is very important, because after all, we can not learn everything by heart. All ways are good if they are effective.

  327. Good teacher should have a natural authority, to be fair, educated, conscientious, understanding and with a sense of humor. Unfortunately, these teachers were never enough and in these modern times there are even fewer. Being a good teacher, it is a mission, not just a profession, like any other. I think teacher have to wanna be a teacher, if someone doing this job just because of money, students know it. Real teacher want to share information with you, want to learn you something and second time of teacher dont care if you know it or not.
    Sometimes we are angry if we have really strict teacher but if you are think about it, they are strict because they want to learn you something. Teaching is hard and responsible job

    I think that as a pedagogue you have to be flexible and be ready for what can be used and need in a lesson or a course. Just to follow the crowd and not take own initiatives does impede, not only the pupils but also yourself to develop. You have to be able to dare to do wrong to be innovative. It is not always possible to get the resources for the material and tools so you have to be creative and motivated. Even though resources should not be the most important I think that without them you can’t help and reach to every pupil. Some children need extra care, help and attention and if you don’t give the extra attention those pupils will be the ones that lose the most. It is not only to motivate the pupils and do the work but you should, as a pedagogue, be motivate too and have an engagement to the profession or else you will lose the pupils motivation.

  329. It is a lot of things that affects a child’s learning and you have to focus on the child’s reality in order to provide the right tools for learning. But I do not believe that the materials are of decisive significance when it comes to learning. I believe that many things could be thought without materials if the conditions are right. It might be more difficult now then earlier, since the computers play such a significant role in the society and serve as an excellent tool for learning. The material that is used when you are teaching does affect the learning outcomes. What fits one student does not automatically fit the next. Just because you have the right material it does not mean that every pupil will reach the predetermined learning outcomes. Material does not help just by being; it is all about how you use them. Because it does not matter how carefully you chose the material if you do not know how to use it in an effective way.

  330. What I value the most in a teacher is his/her self-involvement in both, curriculum making and classroom activities. I, and all students,can immediately recognize a teacher who does copy-paste from the textbook, or a teacher who makes his own power point slides or distribution materials. I don`t ask from a teacher to know everything, I ask him to care, to let the information flow through him and then present it to learners in his own way, with his own understanding. This is the way how to inspire learners to acquire new knowledge but think creatively, with independent perception of things. In addition, I really expect from teachers to want to get to know the newest information about their subjects and teaching methods, because generations change and teacher should have an urge to want to change his methiods with them.

  331. The importance of good and adequate curriculum materials is inevitable – not only concerning textbooks where to find and read theoretical information and practical exercises, but also materials used in classroom by a teacher during lectures. Visual aids, PowerPoint presentations, video materials etc. not only help to make a class more interactive, but help to deliver intended information to everybody in the class room. This is because good visual materials work well on people who have visual memory. Moreover, in a certain age the only way to teach something to a child is with a help of curriculum materials, for example, flashcards. All of this really shows that these materials are as essential as lecture’s content itself.

  332. The teacher is one of the most important people that children from an early age come their way. So I think it should be up to the very well-prepared, he has to deal with inexperienced young people who absorb everything on the show. The teacher must be the authority for the students, should be required but it be understood. The teacher primarily be human, children be aware now that they can go to him with a problem, and that there will always understand. Studying physical education, and I hope that if I work in my profession, I’ll just such a teacher, that will teach and help the children, when the need arises.

  333. A good teacher? You have to wonder whether it is a teacher who teaches well and is knowledgeable about what he teaches, or perhaps a good teacher is one who helps his students, trying to understand them, to capture the individuality of each child. For me, a good teacher should have both. In life, I met a few really great teachers, and those who should never be allowed to work with children. A good teacher does not close in the knowledge that you have, but all the time it is completed and is able to pass this knowledge in a way that does not need to force children to sit for hours on the books, or the fear of the next test. The teacher should also live the life of the school, and than make the required minimum. I met teachers who really cared about the kids and really gave a lot of himself to while away the time spent in school. I think that being a teacher is very difficult and responsible profession. He has the education of several young people who are not yet fully shaped.

  334. I am studying at ELT in my country and I can say that most of my friends don’t know anything about their future job. I am saying ” job” cause before all these factors, firstly they had better know more about their work rather than what to teach. As far as they are aware of what they do and how they do, the following is going to be better. Then, the methology is followed in a conscious way. Of course, as a teacher everybody should adopt fundamental active positions in the production of materials and prepare activities consistent with the school curriculum,but in my opinion, to be a good teacher and especially to be professional mean adopting all these elements to your own teaching method and knowing your students, identifying all the individual and learning differences.

  335. A good teacher is a bit of a friend, not only to teach students how to properly learn and his interpretation should be enriched by his own experience. Person remembers good teacher even after years when you do not go to school a long time ago. Unfortunately, bad teacher pupil also remember for a lifetime. I see the mistake on the side of cantors. How many of them really wants to learn, is passionate about his work, active, inspiring? I think a lot of people going to teachers’ college because they do not know what else they could do. But it’s that right?
    I recognize that such work is very demanding, it is no easy to be a “good teacher” certainly, but I think this is not work for everyone. I would not work in the profession, because I just know that I couldn’t be a good teacher. And that’s why I say admiration all successful professors and wish them much success and persistence.

  336. In my oppinion to be a good teacher is a difficult task. A handle this role is really important, because every teacher affects students and pupils.
    I think there are teachers who teach because it is their profession and they need to earn money to living.On the other hand, there are teachers and professors for their work which is something like a hobby. They like their job and people like this can be a good teacher. It is not only important relationship with the school and education as a whole, but especially for students. Goog teacher must know how is to be a pupils and he has to understood his pupils. Maintain your respect, be a friend and to be able to learn in my opinion are three basic points of how to become a good teacher.

  337. One of the biggest challenge of being a teacher and teach pupils is to get respect and give respect. It´s important to find a balance between being strict and serious and little more informal. You have to learn when you should approach which form of teaching styles. If you´re too strict lesson after lesson the pupils will not like you, when they not like you, they will not respect you. But if you´re too friendly and sharing private talk with your students, they want you to keep talking and suddenly you lost not only the teaching out but also the role as a teacher. I´m not sure how we best combine these two different approaches but I really think that it´s important to be aware of it so we can learn as teachers when it´s time to be formal and when it´s OK to be more informal. And I guess it´s a thing you only can now by experience in the profession.

  338. The teacher as an educational entity has a very important role in the life of an individual. Teacher is part of the education and upbringing. This is a man who gives you new knowledge and skills and with who you spend a lot of time every day – if we are talking about the education in elementary or secondary schools. Teacher should be creative, spontaneous, authentic, have their personality and impressed to know, also authoritarianism and human. Of course has a knowledge in the field. Personally, I like teachers who know how to speak passionately about own subject or about a particular topic. To demonstrate the impressed by conviction even though the theme of no concern to me. Being a teacher is not easy. It is the responsibility for knowledge of future generations. And we all know that learning and impressed the youth of today is really more complicated than it used to be in past times.

  339. I think a good teacher will inform himself on three levels and adapt that provided information to shape his own learning activities and materials.
    – One: the information that society provides (governmental policy)
    – Two: the information that the school provides (school method/ policy)
    – Three the information that the students and their near environment (parents) provide.
    Absorbing this information and translate it into learning activities and choosing matching materials is an important condition. Next to that a teacher should be inspiring, approachable and authentic. He has to be able to motivate his students by giving responsibility, using an interesting medium like media for his activities and adapt to the world of the students. Students from this generation are called students from generation Einstein they our faster, smarter, more flexible, better in multitasking and more social. The most important for them is to develop an authenitic, unique and social personality. Teachers should empower and inspire their students, by using activities and materials that enable the possibility to develop that personality in an innovative and attractive way taking into account the information and needs of the before named levels.

  340. Question what is a good teacher is very subjective but still a good teacher has to have some competence with she can operated in her learning process. I think that everyboody have experience with a good teachers and a teachers which did not impress us. I think that being a teacher is also hard. As a teacher you have a very big role in individuals life. I think that very important thing is relationship between teachers and students. In my class in University of Ljubljana there are only 40 people in the whole year and you can see that teachers know their students by names, that you are not just one of the many people (in economic faculty there are 600 people in one class) who are in one class, you can see that whole relationship among people and teachers is different. Important is trust between teachers and students, respect, curiosity and motivation in both side. Teachers role in education is very extensive and important. She needs to provide a knowledge to other people and she needs to select the right methodology which can be the most effective in some group of people and still be attentive to transfer knowledge in the context of curriculum.

  341. Like we see in the video there are a lot of opinions how the right teachter should be, but I think it depends on the subject. On the one hand, when we talk about history teachers, they should have good knowlege in their subjet and should be really creative in telling the history. A math teacher on the other hand should be very spontaneous in finding new examples for therories to keep the lesson going on. Therefore also the preperation for the lesson with a variety of material and media is really important. But I think we all, as potencial teachers, have to learn what is enough and what is too much for a lesson, including which material we need to prepare. As a conclusion I would say, that we will learn how to be a good teacher while practicing. Furthermore I would say that nowadays lessons without media support aren´t possible anymore.

  342. Actually the question of a good teacher is a really hard question. The reason is, that there are not many profession in our society with such high requirements like being a teacher. These high requirements create an high pressure upon the shoulders of the teacher. Basically there are actually only one side, who should have these requirements: The pupils. But there are more sides, like parents, the school itself and the society.
    In my opinion, being a good teacher is a really hard aim to achieve, because of the requirements. Everytime, when we talk about (good or bad) teacher we should keep that at the back of our mind.

  343. Who said that being a teacher is an easy profession? Nevertheless, people believe that it is easy and non-tiring. But if they are asked for being in a teacher’s position just once…they deny! Now we can imagine why!
    It is also true that students are the best judges of their teachers….And yes, they know when someone is a good teacher or not.
    On the other hand, there are teachers who believe that they know everything just because they have the degree on their hands…And that’s the worst situation and unfortunately very usual too… To this kind of people, the students have to remind them which is their job and what they have to do instead of doing what they believe is good enough. Students have to remind them that the ability of learning people information, the way how to study, the way how to communicate, the way how to think, and a lot of things more, is not at all an easy issue…And also the fact that students are different personalities with their personal characteristics, abilities and skills, so they have to behave to each one unique. Education is not an industry(where activities take place in mass production..)

  344. Oh what a tough job we are going to do! We have to be multitasking. They want us to be a good communicator, enthusiastic, responsable, fair, creative…. And those are just the students. There are parents and colleges who wants us to be in a certain way as well…
    But in my opinion this is also what makes it so interesting. Every day there are new challenges and you have to find a way how to manage them. I think it’s very important to be open-minded: to be interested in the student’s opinion, to discuss and to call for feedback a lot. Besides that it is so important that you can inspire the children. If you are really into the things you talk about and really enjoy learning, experimenting new things than the students also want to learn because human beeings are curious. I think my job is beeing a companion during the process of learning, that will suport the children whenever necessary and encourage them to learn what they think is important for them.

  345. I think that a good teacher is a person vvho teach us something. Sometimes vve are expacting from the teacher to give us a good explanation about the subject but they dont knovv hovv to do it. VVe can see that they have a lot of knovvledge but this doesnt mean that they knovv hovv to make a good interaction vvith a class. Somehovv also this kind of teachers can gave us a lection if vve are prepared to accept it. And I also think that everyone of us have a different style and vve prefer different vvays of learning so all the approaches are good. Of course also I had a fevv bad teachers but the main thing that vvas annoying for me vvas the fact that they didnt respect us. So my conclusion is that everyone is a good teacher for someone and you can learn from him if you vvant but all the teachers should treat the students vvith respect and vvith avvareness that nobody vvorth less than other.

  346. Teachers play a central role in the education of students. A teacher’s attitude and actions can leave lasting impressions. They need to create independent individuals. Effective teachers genuinely care, like, accept, and value their students. These teachers will demonstrate kindness, share responsibility, accept diversity, foster individual instruction, and encourage creativity. With the knowledge of these attitudes and actions, they will have the potential to be an effective teacher who will be remembered fondly by students. They should always promote a good atmosphere, act in a professional manner and be seen as role models by learners. They must teach through cooperation, facilitation, love and caring attitude and not by exercising authority, domination and giving punishments. They must try to raise the self-esteem of students. Good teachers create trust, confidence, interest, enthusiasm and hope ,but not fear, frustration and disappointment. They should be kind and forgiving instead of being revengeful. They should teach by interaction with students rather than depending on lectures alone.

    For me a good teacher is a person the students feel inspired by. Someone how really understands the students and really communicate with them.
    Somehow I believe that every teacher wants to be a good one, but it’s just a few who are given the opperunity to really touch the students and have a real connection with them.
    To be a good teacher you must have a certain quality that you can’t point out to, it’s something that is trickered by the students, the students make you a better teacher.
    If students feel that their teacher really understands them, they will feel much more comfortable. Also for the teacher this is a much nicer way to teach because if the students feel respected, the teacher will be respected to and the students will really try their best to do the best they can.
    Respect is the basic to be a good teacher in my opion.

  348. What’s a good teacher? If the answer to this question sure isn’t easy, cause otherwise ALL the teachers in the world would be good ones. I don’t believe that there’s one teacher that doesn’t WANT to be a good one… Only sometimes it’s hard to define, what exactly you must do to be a good teacher. I think there’s a lot, everyone can ‘do’, but that’s not what will make you a good teacher, it’s the attitude you have, the person you are, that makes you a good or bad teacher. I’m sure you can work on it, but i think it’s also something that’s inside of you, that same people can’t change, even if they would want to. There’s not only one quality that would make you a good teacher, it’s so many qualities together.

    The thing that ‘Rick’ is saying in this video, made me think about a conversation I had with the other belgian girls earlier this week..
    We were talking about the relationship between the teacher and students here in Spain, that they are better than the relationships we have with our teachers in Belgium. For some reason, belgian teachers are more uncommunicative with their students. They teach and besides that, you don’t have any relation with your teacher. you are ‘just’ a student.
    And if we see how the spanish teachers that we have here, talk to us and teach their subject with so much passion for what they do and teach, than it really gets to us. We are not only students here, we are students who can really talk with our teachers, discuss with them and share our opinion with them, and that’s my idea of a good teacher.

  350. In the beginning in teaching is needed authority to the teacher. But the problem is, teacher should be the authority or have authority? Moreover, he or she has to be/have authority as a teacher or as a person? It’s not easy question, because it’s obligated by material of learning. We had one teacher in high school which was learning us our own language. We didn’t know about her nothing, nothing as a person, history, even her opinion she shew rare. Someone may asked, how the hell it’s possible, that oldschool, teacher like a Prussian officer can learn a literature and poesy? She might, and she did it well. The most amazing was that she’s never screaming, wasn’t giving any punishment or penalty test. The worst punishment was her disappointment, which you can see in her eyes. Moreover no one in class wasn’t talking, almost never. Not because they was scared, not because they didn’t have about what, but because there weren’t any ideas in their mind that they can talk on her lesson. We know her only as a teacher, not as a person, but still she was (and is) one of most amazing teacher I’ve ever had and she prepared us to ‘mature exam’ as well as it was only possible.

  351. If I remember my own schooldays and think about my studentlife the most impressiv and succeful teachers for me were/are those who had/have PERSONALITY and HUMANITY. What do I mean with that? It is very dificult to explain what personality means because it is very subjective and divers but somehow I think people who are committed to their subjects and who feel confident about what they do and WHO THEY ARE have the ability to affect someone. Of course the competence to TRANSPORT KNOWLEDGE and the capability to MAKE THINGS INTERESTING is also very important. But how can one make things interesting? One point is if someone has the feeling something concerns him he is more interested. Often in school one big question of the pupils is: “Why should I learn it? It is not important for my life…I like other subjects but not this.” There is obviously a big distance between the subject and some pupils. A good teacher has to take this distance and should be able to answer this question in an suitable way for this pupil and also has to show how different disciplines are connected to each other. Before one are able to teach something he has to get TRUST to the class and I think it is necessary to be humanly. I remember my music teacher. She was entusiastic, funny and sometimes grumpy but in every class my classmates and I learned a lot. She had this special connection to everyone, although many pupils didn’t like her they had respect before her love to music and the wonderful ability to transport it to us. Her methods were sometimes oldschool but I am sure nobody has forgotten the circle of fifth..

    I think good teaching often has less to do with their knowledge and skills but with their attitude towards their students, their subject, and their work.

    These are the words of an educator and philosopher Parker Palmer what I think is really true:
    “Good teaching isn’t about technique. I’ve asked students around the country to describe their good teachers to me. Some of them describe people who lecture all the time, some of them describe people who do little other than facilitate group process, and others describe everything in between. But all of them describe people who have some sort of connective capacity, who connect themselves to their students, their students to each other, and everyone to the subject being studied.” (1999, p. 27)

    For me the best teachers are teachers that consider the students as equal, teachers that teach because they really want to and not because they have to because it’s their job. Teachers that teach their subject with heart and soul, that are adding personal experience and values and beliefs into the subject
