Here Below you can check out the feedback (for one of our units) of one of the 16.000 students that last year took an online course with ITTT!
Unit 10 presented 2 video lessons with the same topic but different approuch. It showed how any lack of the appropriate aspect, such as: a teacher's smile, positive attitude, inviting gesture, appropriate voice and following the right order of lesson phases, affect the class, students participation and even their feelings. There is a big difference between the lessons in both factors: the teachers approach and the result of the lesson.
In fact, in the first video the teacher had started the lesson with the Study phase, instead of Engage one; he did not explain clearly the topic, his attitude to the students was diprived any interes in them, lacked enthusiasm, he was pointing at students, showing his disappointment in them, and had other unappropriate, discauraging behaviour. The positive behaviour if him was only calling a student's name after announcing a question and using pictures during the lesson. Inversa, in the second lesson the teacher was very positive, encouraging, he had introduced himself ang gotten equainted to the students before the lesson started, he even wrote his name on the board, he was smiling, his gestures were inviting, he involved the whole class into participation, he explained the tasks and the topic clearly, and as a result, students felt confident, and I dare to say, respected, as well as responded with the high level of participation.
It was a very good presentation of how a teacher should and should not conduct a lesson.
