The $4 Million Teacher | Wall Street Journal

The $4 Million Teacher | Wall Street Journal | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

by Amanda Ripley


"Kim Ki-hoon earns $4 million a year in South Korea, where he is known as a rock-star teacher—a combination of words not typically heard in the rest of the world. Mr. Kim has been teaching for over 20 years, all of them in the country's private, after-school tutoring academies, known as hagwons. Unlike most teachers across the globe, he is paid according to the demand for his skills—and he is in high demand.

"Mr..Kim works about 60 hours a week teaching English, although he spends only three of those hours giving lectures. His classes are recorded on video, and the Internet has turned them into commodities, available for purchase online at the rate of $4 an hour. He spends most of his week responding to students' online requests for help, developing lesson plans and writing accompanying textbooks and workbooks (some 200 to date)."

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

I started teaching at a time when even a science fiction junkie couldn't come up with a 4 million a year teacher. Now it's possible. If stories like this don't get teachers building online curriculum.... I don't know what will!

not exactly gamification - but success breeds success - good feedback systems to parents and people are rewarded for their efforts.

Qui a dit que le métier d'enseignant payait mal ;-) ?

NB : à noter la répartition entre le temps du suivi des étudiants à distance par rapport aux activités "transmissives".
