The Evolving Role of the Teacher

The Evolving Role of the Teacher | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

More teachers today are providing opportunities for their students to connect and learn in powerful ways. There is an increasing focus on collaboration, competency-based learning, use of open resources, project-based learning, and learning environments are shifting to support these new opportunities. These shifts are accelerated by access to technology that has transformed how we learn and interact with one another.

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

Metacognition, simply put, is the process of thinking about thinking. It is important in every aspect of school and life, since it involves self-reflection on one’s current position, future goals, potential actions and strategies, and results. At its core, it is a basic survival strategy, and has been shown to be present even in rats.
