Hypocrisy in the Profession of Education

Hypocrisy in the Profession of Education | 21st Century Tools for Teaching-People and Learners | Scoop.it
Whenever I think of a teacher, I also think of a scholar. It has always been apparent to me that if one is to be an effective teacher, one must continually learn. Of course that is not always a pat...

 

As educators we must be learners first. If we are to be better educators, we must first be better learners. We may not always have a choice in what we learn.


After so long not being involved with learning, many educators do not know how much they do not know.


===> How can they make decisions on what they need to learn, if they are unaware of the existence of many of the things they need to know? <===


===> To be better educators, we first need to be better learners. <===



The biggest hypocrisy of the Education Profession is that the educators too often have become poor learners ===> unwilling to leave their comfort zones to improve their learning. <===

This is very very true! I strongly agree with the part where they wouldn't want to leave their comfort zones!

Agree. Teachers must be open minded and willing to learn more and more , (a lifetime edeavour , )to kep up and be equiped to teach well their "pupils" on overall advances bat specially their field of expertize ! Be up to date all the time to teach well and really enjoy what they do . I know I have been a teacher in the past .

Salut,

Je ne vous décevrais pas, merci encore une fois ! Il y a de nouveaux projets en cours, bientôt. Mes nouveaux cours en anglais comment on peut apprendre la sécurité informatique en 5 minutes, pas à pas. Un tutoriel après l'autre de 5 minutes seulement.

Stay tuned ;) Le premier sortira ce soir encore... Votre "feedback" sera le bienvenu, critiques aussi bienvenus ainsi que des idées, si possible se sera fait :-)

Bonne soirée
