We know this either from seeing them, or hearing and reading about them in blogs, on social media and in our everyday teaching lives. Some have state-of-the-art equipment and everything an educator and students would dream of. Several have a few things that could assist the class in their learning, colourful walls and children’s work displayed on them. Some, however, have nothing at all, apart from dirt floors and bare walls.Why does this occur? How does this affect learning, if it does at all? What is the most important entity in the classroom? Join me in a journey around the world, where we will be on a quest to search for where the importance lies.

DISCUSSION QUESTION: How do you implement the human touch in your class room, teaching context, or life as an educator.

I first know that I am a teacher because there are students. Thus, I always attempt to maintain an interactive atmosphere and be ready to bring my support at any time even sometimes in quizzes or exams time. My only and unique objectives to get them to know what I know, to encourage higher level of attention in the classroom, out-of-school and constant pracSee more

As a teacher, I try to establish a supportive environment, so students feel comfortable to express themlselves.
Many times they have come to me talking about problems outside the classroom and that interfere in their presence/absence in the classroom and many of them have asked for comprehension.
I am lovely with them, no matter how old they are anSee more

I teach at an elementary school in South Korea. I always try to encourage my students to try to speak even if they make mistakes because that is how we can learn and improve by practising. I like to have a fun, interactive atmosphere in the classroom. Sometimes we do fun songs and silly actions and it is amazing how much they can learn in a stress-free envirSee more

How do you implement the human touch in your class room, teaching context, or life as an educator?

As I teach middle school boys, I try to create English lessons that contain subtle life lessons. A lesson that is entertaining and simultaneously educational is important to me and I see they appreciate it. I show them I care about them individually,See more

As a teacher , I'm a good listener , listen to them and their problems as I want them to be relaxed in order to get most of the lesson and have important inputs. If anyone is sick , I ask about her. I try to give my break time to my students. I love being a teacher because of my students. :-)

"How do you implement the human touch in your class room, teaching context, or life as an educator."
I work in a rural area of South Korea with elementary and middle school students who are, for the most part, (seriously) socio-economically disadvantaged. The pressure for them to prepare for (too many) standardised tests is very intense. I trySee more

I try to communicate with them in the classroom during the lesson and out of class during the breaks. What is more I try to connect the lesson with reality and always encourage them to think where they can use what they have learnt in their life.

I try to talk with my students about thei problems,advise them in the best possible way and establish a friendly relationship with them,which is of major importance to me. I am never authoritarian towards them and try not to tell them off. Students should enjoy the lesson in a warm,cosy environment.

How do you implement the human touch in your class room, teaching context, or life as an educator?
To me teaching means starting close human relations with other human beings, therefore I treat them the way that I would like to be treated by others. In other words, a teacher should remain authoritative not authoritarian. In my class room, teaching contSee more
