News from the Classroom

St. Paul Raider Science Blog

A science blog created and maintained by Mr. Streble's science class at St. Paul Catholic School in Louisville, Kentucky.

Technology

Preschool, PK, K and First Grade classes have been learning the placement of the letters of the alphabet on their computer keyboards by first viewing the AlphaBlocks YouTube videos from the BBC learning website. To see these with your children, go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UU4FKj0OmWs. Secondly they "play" a game called AtoZap, as well as the TuxPaint text feature.

Second and Third Grades have been gaining wordprocessing skills, learning about creating documents and formatting text, and the third graders are practicing their keyboarding skills at learning.com's "Prescriptive Keyboarding" program.

Fourth Grade is learning about spreadsheets, bar graphs and line graphs. They are also practicing their keyboarding skills with "Typing Tutor" (http://www.typingweb.com/tutor/).

Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Grades are also practicing their keyboarding skills with the online "Typing Tutor" program, while the eighth graders are finding, using and evaluating Digital Tools and Project Ideas for classroom use.

What New Role Does 21st Century Learning Create For Parents? - Part 3

This is the final part of the series of three articles discussing about the new role that 21st century learning creates for parents.


Parents are a child’s first teacher and serve as a model for behavior and provide guidance and support that build a child’s self-esteem and enhances learning. Schools take a lot of responsibility for preparing students for their futures; they obviously can't do it alone. Parents don't want them to do it alone and want to be equal contributors in their child’s success. Parental involvement and support are most vital to a child’s education.

The book, ‘Preparing Students for the 21st Century’ by Donna Uchida, Marvin Cetron, Floretta McKenzie, brings insights on what students need now to lead successful lives. It [also] highlights how parents must contribute towards their child’s learning to prepare them for the 21st century. Some of the highlights from the section are:

  • Parents should work collaboratively with teachers and the school and visit and communicate with the school regularly. When parents work closely with their child’s teacher and the school, the child is the winner. Depending on their level of involvement, parents gain self confidence in parenting, develop an understanding of their home as a learning environment, an understanding of school programs and services, and develop increased comfort in communicating with the school to work towards policies that affect their child’s education.
    As a result of this, children gain respect for their parents, understand that school is important and develop confidence in doing their school work. Teachers and school systems gain a respect and appreciation of a parent’s time, a common base knowledge for communicating about a student’s progress and shortcomings at school and a feeling of parental support for programs.
  • Parents should be collaborators and problem-solvers. They should supplement what students learn in school by encouraging and rewarding achievements, providing enrichment activities, enforcing policies about bedtime and homework and helping schools solve a child’s problems as they arise. They should also attend events and stay informed on their child’s school life.
  • Parents should offer constant support, take out more time and put in efforts to help their child with his learning. They can also serve as tutors and volunteers in their child’s school, work closely with the parent-teacher group and may belong to the parent support network.
  • At the highest level of involvement, parents can be advisers and co-decision makers. They can do so by becoming a part of the school board, school council or a decision-making group.
  • They should take an active interest in their child’s school work. A parent’s attitude towards education and school can have profound impact on student achievement. When parents ask about and check their child’s school work, when they discuss their child’s likes and dislikes and show that they care about school, they send a very powerful message that school is important and it should be valued.
  • They should provide a rich and stable home-learning environment by providing learning opportunities at home. They can provide more reading materials to make children better readers and can set a good example of reading often themselves.
  • The concept of life-long learning should be modeled and valued. Parents should encourage inquiry, questioning and experimentation. They can send the message that one should never stop learning by continuing to take classes in adulthood. They can support education verbally and through their actions.
  • They should read to and with children. By reading aloud, parents can introduce children to literature. They should model the importance of reading throughout life. The more types of reading materials at home will increase a child’s reading proficiency.
  • Parents should monitor homework completion and provide guidance towards goals. If parents show interest in their child’s learning, then the child is more likely to develop a good attitude toward learning that will lead to academic success. Parents can help children by making homework a priority and provide a quiet place where children can study. They should also teach their child how to set and achieve goals which will help them build confidence and self-esteem. Children who are allowed to become involved in their own scheduling and goal setting become more self-reliant and often more enthusiastic about studying.

21st century learning creates a lot of new roles for parents and from being mere supporters, parents are required to become partners in their child’s learning.
