Terrible Times Lie Ahead for Bad Teachers

Terrible Times Lie Ahead for Bad Teachers | Anley Education | Scoop.it

by Felix Jacomino

 

As I prepare a presentation on 21st Century Skills, I find myself dealing with having to first be clear on what they are NOT. Only because for many, the term "21st Century" is synonymous with technology. In this post, I won't get into the details of why it's not.

 

What I would like to share is my realization that terrible times lie ahead for bad teachers. Conversely, there has never been a more exciting time for a good educator than today and the near future!

 

In order to make a statement like that, I owe it to my readers to give my definition of each type of teacher.

 

Bad teachers:

Do not want to learn new things.

Have "the book" lead instruction and feel the need to always stick to it.

Are comfortable doing the same lessons (the same way) year after year.

Never step out of their comfort zone.

Live in their own bubble and do not see the need to live outside of it.

Only teach facts and assess the ability to memorize those facts ("Any teacher that can be replaced by a computer, deserves to be." -David Thornburg). 

Design tests to be easily gradeable.

Think that all progress in education are "fads."

Do not learn new things... oops, I already wrote that! It bears repeating because SOOOO much can be learned from other colleagues!

 

Good teachers:

Care whether their students find the learning relative.

Are ALWAYS looking for new ways to engage their students.

Embrace quality professional development as often as they can.

Learn from and share with other educators.

Have gotten this far into this post and are nodding their heads ;-)

 

My hopes are that we QUICKLY get to the point where teachers who do not inspire and engage will be seen as employees who are simply not doing their jobs and be let go. Or, they may move to schools that don't "get it" (yet) and find a safe haven there for now. Either way, it's time for ALL teachers to pick a side. And yes, there's plenty of room on the "good side" for bad teachers to make the change. Here's hoping!

Interesting take, and of course true, i.e. "technology" is not 21st Century.  It is almost a constant - technology facilitates (or can, used correctly) good teaching, and offers opportunities to add variety, flexibility and relevance.  Used badly it can be irrelevant.

Tony Palmeri's curator insight, October 25, 2015 10:48 AM

I chose this resource because they way teachers use social media has been a sore spot for many in our building. I support the idea of using social media in a professional construct and I feel that it is a powerful tool. However, even in teacher circles I've witnessed far too much negativity and I'm not sure that those individuals understand that the toxic nature of some posts are doing much damage to our school culture (and the community perceptions). I'm shocked to find that some teachers continue to use some social media to converse with students in non-academic affairs. It is truly not a good idea. I think this resource would be great to distribute during PD that occurs at the beginning of a school year.

I never thought about using the drawing as a whiteboard tool. Will have to give it a shot.

Teacher Agency: Educators Moving from a Fixed to a Growth Mindset

Teacher Agency:  Educators Moving from a Fixed to a Growth Mindset | Anley Education | Scoop.it

It is a myth that we operate under a set of oppressive bureaucratic constraints. In reality, teachers have a great deal of autonomy in the work they chose to do in their classrooms. In most cases it is our culture that provides the constraints. For individual teachers, trying out new practices and pedagogy is risky business and both our culture, and our reliance on hierarchy, provide the ideal barriers for change not to occur.

Teaching Children With Dyslexia - Accommodations - Reading Horizons | Anley Education | Scoop.it

"As a dyslexic specialist and someone who knows a great deal about teaching children with dyslexia, I see on a daily basis the struggles these students face in the mainstream classroom. What can be written in an Individualized Education Program (IEP) varies from state to state, and, often, dyslexia is not even addressed. Sometimes, if you approach it as a reading disability or a processing disorder, the schools may be more willing to work with you. You have the right as parents to discuss with your children's teachers certain accommodations that will help your children perform better and allow them to measure a more-accurate assessment of their knowledge and intelligence. You may take this list in to your children's schools and/or teachers and discuss with them what they would be willing to do to help your children."

Joe - thanks so much. That's very kind. It's still pretty rich for an individual researcher. IGI - For a company whose tag line is "disseminator of knowledge" seems like making an inexpensive digital copy available would increase the reach and has absolutely no marginal cost. The price also means that faculty will be hesitant to assign it to students. Time to revisit the business model!

Pamela - I totally agree with you (and even mention it in my blog post - which has been read by folks at IGI. ) I can only assume that as the books continue to be published, there is still demand for them even at that price point. Time to revisit the business model indeed!

BYOD School Tells Students, "Buy a Calculator Because You Can Cheat with Your iPads!"

BYOD School Tells Students, "Buy a Calculator Because You Can Cheat with Your iPads!" | Anley Education | Scoop.it

Can you believe this? 

 

My daughter goes to a 20th century school that mistakingly thinks it embraces 21st century learning simply because it allows students to bring their own device. This is particularly frustrating to me since I speak on this very subject at schools and conferences around the country. 

 

"Daddy, I need to buy a scientific calculator for math class!" I respond, "Oh sweetie, you're so cute. No one with a brand new iPad mini needs to buy a physical calculator any more. Just tell me what functions you need it to do and I'll help you find the right app." To which she says, "No. We're not allowed to use our iPads or phones. The teacher says we can cheat that way by texting, IMing, or emailing answers to each other." *facepalm*

 

I would like to crowdsource here and ask for comments as to how to best deliver my email to this school's academic director.

 

Thanks in advance!

The teacher could think about creating an assignment that involves much more than crunching numbers, and requires analysis, hypothesis proposal and other key scientific research skills that make using a Sci Calculator out of date - the whole notion of cheating is outdated.
