The 21 Signs you are A 21st Century Teacher

The 21 Signs you are A 21st Century Teacher | BYOD iPads | Scoop.it

Teaching in the 21st century is definitely not an easy task. Students are digitally focused and have more free access to information challenging thus the traditional prototypic picture of the teacher as the knowledge instigator. Engagement is also another serious issue that makes educating such kind of students a real nightmare. It takes so much creativity, originality, and novelty from the part of teachers to get students motivated and engaged.

Mathew's curator insight, December 12, 2012 10:51 AM

My thoughts: I agree that teachers need to use technology more in class. But the teachers need to be trained in the use of the technology so they can teacher the class and how to use the technology. Because most teachers these days can’t use the computers and the other technology they have and that’s because they haven’t been trained or taught in how to use the technology. Also having technology and things that are more fun for the students will help them learn and make them want to come to school each day to learn. Right now school and classes are boring so having something different would help a bunch and it would make us want to learn and want to come to school. Also I think that if each kid was given a laptop for their entire school career that would help kids learn and it would also help them get their homework done and projects done on time. Some kids once they leave school they don’t have access to a computer so they can’t do their homework at home. But if they had a laptop they could start the homework and school and then when they get home they already have the worked start and they can work at it at home. Also sometimes if you start a project at school you can’t always get it home but if you had a laptop you could have it at home and be able to work on it and get it done for class the next day.

Getting Schooled by a Third Grader: an event on early education and technology.

Getting Schooled by a Third Grader: an event on early education and technology. | BYOD iPads | Scoop.it

"Whether kids are jumping in front of Microsoft’s Kinect, tapping on an iPad, building worlds on Minecraft, or sending tweets in kindergarten classrooms, the ways they use technology are sparking new teaching methods in elementary education—and providing some cautionary tales. As interactive media become an animating force in children’s lives, how can teachers and schools make the most of its educational value? How can we tell the difference between technologies that belong in the classroom and those that are best suited for afterschool entertainment? And what might young kids’ use of media teach us about the ways they learn?"

The Global Search for Education: More From Singapore - Huffington Post

The Global Search for Education: More From Singapore - Huffington Post | BYOD iPads | Scoop.it

Singapore is recognized globally as a high-performing education system. Singapore students fared very well in the 2009 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA). Out of 65 countries that took part in these tests, Singapore students ranked fifth in reading, second in mathematics and fourth in science. "Singapore also had the second highest proportion (12.3 percent) of students who are top performers in all three domains," according to a press release from Singapore's Ministry of Education. How do teachers motivate students in the Singapore school system? How do they level the playing field between rich and poor students? How do they handle behavioral problems? Are they obsessed with testing?
