This is a pretty good article for teachers who are trying to divert from the traditional methods of leading the class. The main focus should be the steps given, which are easy to learn and broad enough to adapt any classroom. I would recommend others use this article as a guideline to how you should lead the class room. I like the idea of imagining the role as a "learner first."

Meaningful learning last the longest. Learning applied to solving real life problems makes learning meaningful.....that is after all why we teach and why we  want to learn. Education is not just about getting a job nor is it only about doing something because it's on the next page or a test. That is a reality is hard for both student and teacher to remember. Activites like this can help bring home what education is about.

Teacher Education in Finland

Teacher Education in Finland | BeBetter | Scoop.it

Finland is generally recognized as one of the world’s highest performing nations. Over the past decade, Finnish students have been high performers on the international PISA exams.

 

 


In Finnish schools, students never take a standardized test. How is their progress assessed? By their teachers.

 

 

Finnish educators say that the key totheir success is the high quality of their teachers. Not just a star here and there, but the profession as a whole has high standards for entry and for preparation. There are no shortcuts o becoming a teacher in Finland. Teachers are highly respected, just as much as other professions.

Tener en cuenta... 

AnnC's curator insight, September 30, 2013 7:20 PM

We need to create a culture that respects the teaching profession as much as any other as will create our future leaders.

Vrinda Boodram's curator insight, December 6, 2013 6:48 PM

I applaud the approach on education taken by Finland. Staying clear of a content-driven, test-based system is clearly  the way to go based on their success rate! Relying on standardized testing to measure students’ success only demoralizes the ability of the students (especially those who are not good test-takers), and even the teachers since they too are judged and evaluated based on how their students perform. Testing tolerance simply strips children of their confidence and teachers of their ability to creatively teach, and as a result disables children from achieving their maximum potential.

 

The respect that Finnish teachers have is also drastically different to that of the U.S. where the notorious phrase is, “those can’t do, teach.” The enforcement of educators having a Masters degree and undergoing extensive training for entry and preparation seems to be the reason why that level of respect is upheld. The fact that only one of ten teachers is accepted to teacher colleges is a clear indication of the rigour and competitiveness of the program. This type of structure ensures that only the best of the best become teachers of the future leaders of the nation.

Helping people find what they’re good at and love to do is the surest way to increase their engagement at work and promote a deeper sense of well-being and fulfillment in their lives. I’m not saying, of course, that if education helped everyone find their element, that would solve all the social and economic problems we face.

 

But it would certainly help. And it’s much better than the alternative.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, May 4, 2013 1:26 PM

Integrating technology in your teaching requires beforehand planning and structuring. It also predisposes the existence of a set of learning goals you  want to achieve through the integration of this technology in the class. So, the process is highly structured and pre-arranged and nothing is left for " happy accidents ".

Amanda Rogers's comment, May 4, 2013 6:11 PM
This is a great tool to refer to for integrating technology into lessons whilst encorporating learning goals and allowing for HOT. It is well structured and prevents lesving steps out.
Kia Sowden's comment, May 11, 2013 1:01 AM
I think many teachers struggle to truly integrate technology into their classrooms. I believe their is the common misconception that if you are 'using' technology you are integrating it into your teaching and learning. However there is a difference between the two.

“Tweeting can be thought of as a new literary practice,” said Greenhow (Assistant Professor of Education at Michigan State University), who also studies the growing use of social media among high-schoolers. “It’s changing the way we experience what we read and what we write.” “The students get more engaged because they feel it is connected to something real, that it’s not just learning for the sake of learning,” Greenhow said. “It feels authentic to them.”

21st Century Technology Skills Are a Core Competency for Today’s Graduates | BeBetter | Scoop.it
Our students need to be comfortable with the information technologies that are inextricably linked to the 21st century skills the work place requires, and teachers need to help pave the way.

Some of the skills commonly being cited as vital in today’s workforce include:

 

 

 

- The ability to communicate effectively orally and in writing (with almost all of today’s written communications in business being conducted digitally).

 

- Teamwork skills and the ability to collaborate with others in diverse groups settings (and information technologies are increasingly essential to many forms of organizational collaboration).

 

- The ability to innovate and be creative (today’s information technologies empower innovate and creative capabilities in ways not previously envisioned).

 

- The ability to locate, organize, and evaluate information from multiple sources.

This autumn everyone can be a student. We make online learning interactive, scalable and social. Join the MOOC revolution!
Alessandro Rea's insight:
Core elements of an Open Course

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are more than filmed lectures or static e-learning resources. They make use of online video in new ways and combine it with interactive elements as well as a social layer that encourages peer-to-peer learning.

Video

Online video instruction is the core of open course teaching. These videos break down the content of an hour-long lecture into individual concepts that can be explained in short videos that are just a few minutes long.

Feedback

Answering a few multiple-choice questions allows students to check for themselves whether they grasped the key concepts. Such interactive elements keep students engaged, ensure that they stay on track from week to week and provide immediate feedback to the instructor.

P2P

Students can post, browse and respond to other students’ questions in the context of a student forum. They can upvote questions and answers that they found particularly helpful so that the best content bubbles to the top.
