Therefore, it is emphasized how important it is for the teachers to have computer skills and knowledge of information communication technology, as well as the ability to redesign learning and teaching process in the sense of combining the traditional teaching strategies with the possibilities offered by new technologies.Moreover, organization of working time, organization of working place, or creation of a stimulating environment for learning, determination of the parameters of functional learning outcomes and self-assessment as well as assessment of learning outcomes are also given importance.Children are surrounded by information technology (computers, mobile phones, tablets, video games, DVD movies, etc.) from the earliest age and come to school with the basic skills of their application and knowledge of their function.
Teaching strategies become the instrument of achieving the set goals.
Today’s perception of teaching is based on the humanistic approach to education and, among other things, the principles of critical communication didactics.
Given the conceptual definition of the teaching strategy, the paper analyzes in detail the concepts of teaching skills and teaching strategies through which the transfer of learning and teaching methodsare explained.
It is emphasized that strategies, methods and procedures are important aspects of the educational process that complement each other and intertwine.
In accordance with the deliberations of Kolić-Vehovec (1998) on the scientific knowledge of educational psychology as an aid to teachers in encouraging the students’ learning process, behavioral, social cognitive, constructivist learning theory and humanistic approach to learning are brought into the teaching context.
The question of contemporary teaching is manifested in the level of approach to the teaching process, level of plans and programs, teaching content, educational goals, subjects of the teaching process, communication, methods and teaching strategies.
In order to achieve the main goal of teaching, which is to assist the children during the learning process, teachers should rely on their knowledge about their students, the subject they teach and the situation they are in, in order to find the most appropriate teaching strategy (Stoll and Fink, 2000). By carefully selecting, combining and adapting teaching strategies, teachers influence the development of cognitive, affective and psychosocial abilities of students, that is, the learning process.
The student’s experience and the perception of the entire teaching process can be a guideline to teachers in creating a curriculum based on contemporary didactic postulates.
With a variety of different skill levels in every classroom, teachers must employ effective strategies that allow each student to learn the material.
Whether the class focuses on literature, grammar, or language skills, these teaching strategies will come in handy for many English teachers.
