English / Re: Poor language skill of the Turkish students

I believe not only for the Turkish students but also we can provide such effective remedial courses for our own students who seem to be very weak in forming and understanding the English language.Thank you for sharing ma'am.

Faculty Forum / Importance of Project based Learning
« on: February 23, 2015, 03:31:19 PM »
The article “Maximizing the Benefits of Project work in Foreign Language Classrooms” by Alan and Stoller beautifully states that successful PBL incorporates teachers guidance and feedback on the one hand, and students autonomy and engagement on the other hand. In short we can say that a successful PBL ensures focuses on real-world subject matter that can sustain the interest of students, requires student collaboration and, at the same time, some degree of student autonomy and independence, can accommodate a purposeful and explicit focus on form and other aspects of language which is process and product oriented, with an emphasis on integrated skills and end-of project reflection at the end. The steps are also important to implement such PBL in an effective way and it can start with the question/topic that is very much real and interesting to the students to engage and motivate them following designing, time schedule, monitoring, assessing and finally evaluating. Obviously the teacher is an active and careful guide who depends on their students more and provides constructive and effective feedback time to time when needed. On the other hand, it is actually a product by the students at the end of the day which incorporates their own ideas and concerns. The proper balance of teacher’s guidance and student’s autonomy can ensure the endeavor of an effective and successful PBL. Hope to learn more from you all.

Your ideas are well stated ma'am and yes I agree that using Quaranic verses without the proper context may confuse readers of other religion and so we need to be very careful while commenting on these.May be the mis-representation of these verses through media and some authors are responsible for these concerned issues.

English / Alternative Assessment in Classroom
« on: February 12, 2015, 12:31:11 PM »
Alternative assessment is the actual reflection of the students learning which is based on their performances.This is beneficial for the learners as they would motivate themselves to design, construct and evaluate themselves for the overall goal and objectives of a course. Of course, this is something easier than the traditional assessment where teacher participates as a guide only to instruct for a task/activity and provide rubric and reveals their performances in a more meaningful way where they themselves can measure their development and growth and can grade them accordingly.Here I have attached a wonderful article regarding alternative assessment where you can find some important ideas regarding implementation of this.

English / Collaborative Problem Solving Skills
« on: February 07, 2015, 06:49:26 PM »
The key concept lies within the working with interests in collaborative problem solving which refers to the critical competency for college and career readiness. Students are expected to understand and develop the idea that there are more one ways to solve any kind of problems. The main challenge lies in organizing computer based assessment of CPS skills when it’s about a large assessment program where an individual is expected to match and collaborate with different types of other members representing different CPS skills and contexts. The terms collaborative problem solving, cooperative work, and group work are used interchangeably in the current education research literature to mean similar constructs.

Here problems are identified first and the tasks are developed accordingly. It is mixture of collaboration: “coordinated, synchronous activity that is the result of a continued attempt to construct and maintain a shared conception of a problem” (Roschelle, &Teasley, 1995, p. 70); and problem solving: “cognitive processing directed at achieving a goal when no solution method is obvious to the problem solver” (Mayer, & Wittrock, 1996). According to Griffin, Care, and McGaw (2012), it focuses each other’s point of view regarding some particular problem and concern. It helps to establish others’ responses in a group in terms of contributing knowledge, experience and expertise in a constructive way with constructive feedback and results. In Program for International Student Assessment PISA 2015, CPS competency is defined as the ability to identify and involve in a particular problem solving process with the collaborative effort along with the help of the agent for establishing an effective solution. The competency depends on how well the individual collaborates with agents (either a human or a computer) during the process which includes shared understanding, taking effective actions to resolve the problem, and also establishing and maintaining group organization.

The learner’s role is significant here which includes:
a.   They should be aware of the specific kind of activities needed to identify and solve the problem.
b.   They should be clear in understanding their roles as one of the group members and even as an individual along with the agent’s role focusing on the reflection regarding the valuable concerns of conflicts and obstacles.
