26 February 2020 | 13:00 - 13:30 | The 4 Levels of Classroom Leadership

Students are not engaged effectively in our classroom. I think that improving teacher skills to guide on the side and make classroom happier will fill the gap. As a result of my learning, searching and contemplating I applied a model which uses modern strategies that helps teachers in four levels of leadership. Level 1 is a position. where students follow because they have to. Level 2 is a permission. when the students follow because they want to. And this could happen when the teacher build learning community, use art and technology to make classroom time more fun. Level 3 is a production. Students and teacher will work as a team to achieve their goals together, and the students follow because of what the leader has done for their education. Level 4 is a student’s development. Students will be happy to share knowledge, inquire and search outside curriculums and learn for their future. We will discuss how to use existing tools to make a classroom a happier place.
