Therefore, we will fill you in on the 5 best qualities to be a successful teacher supported by Skolera LMS new updates, version 6.0.
5 Ways LMS Helps You Be a Successful Teacher
- Teach outside the box
- Never stop, develop yourself
- Be organized, resourceful
- Communicate with parents
- Adopt a rewarding system for students
1. LMS Helps You Think out of the Box
You may feel sometimes that you can’t do a certain thing. No worries, it happens to all of us! Sometimes you could even find yourself repeating this to yourself, unintentionally.
Therefore, the best way to get over this is to always think outside of the box. The best person to talk about this case is Joe Ruhl, a teacher of biology, genetics, and science research courses at Jefferson High School in Lafayette, Indiana, US, at his TEDx Talk.
He talks about how he turned his class’s learning experience into a fun, creative one by thinking out of the box.
He says there’s another activity that kids like very much called “arts and entertainment,” where students take any concept they learn in the unit and develop a presentation project at home to present it later to the rest of the class.

This project has to be non-traditional, he continues. For example, they may sing a song or even perform a skit.
And he shows, in the video (min 10:17), a twin who decided to show the fact that they inherited half of their genes from their mother and the other half from the father through cutting the legs of their trousers and sewing one leg to the other.
He believes this teaching technique allows the teacher to listen to students’ thinking, creating something he calls “teacher paradox.”
By getting yourself out of the equation and being a guide only to your students, he explains, you may think you will be less important. But the paradox here is that you become more important instead.
Working as a guide on the sideline assisting students makes you more free to use the most powerful teaching techniques he ever experienced in his 37-year experience as a teacher: teacher’s love for the subject and teacher’s love for students.
It’s worth mentioning that this is one of the teaching techniques supported by Skolera LMS.

2. Never Stop, Develop Yourself
Love what you do. Seriously, unless you truly love teaching, you can never become a successful teacher, at least not the students’ favourite one! If you feel that teaching is something mundane, then you need to re-evaluate what you are doing.
On the other hand, teachers should always develop their skills and techniques. Learning never stops. Every day there is something new out there for you to learn: another online course, a new lecture somewhere, a unique application you didn’t know about before.
You can also discover new information and knowledge just from dedication an hour daily for reading or searching the internet or even trying available school LMS (SMS).

Plus, you will find much encouragement from them in all the activities you come up with for the students. Naturally this will positively affect students.
