The Shift of the Role of the Teacher

The Shift of the Role of the Teacher | Ed and Me | Scoop.it

We know today’s students will have to create their jobs, not look for jobs. They will compete with others around the globe. They will have jobs replaced by outsourcing and technology if their skills are easily replicated or duplicated.  To succeed, students will need creativity, communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and entrepreneurship.


They will need to be able to adapt to change, be resilient and able to work effectively in a variety of environments.

Robin Benton's curator insight, Today, 8:35 AM

We need to re-evaluate our whole education system to ensure that we provide students with what they need to succeed in the global work environment of today.  Especially our college/university structure.  Too many students graduate with degrees that cost them a large sum of money and yet don't provide them with marketable skills.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, Today, 8:57 AM

Teaching will be an amalgam of a number of roles perhaps unfolding in very unexpected ways. Is it possible that during the course of the day teaching can be each of the roles listed in the graphic?

Research: How Video Production Affects Student Engagement

edX recently commissioned a study of nearly 1,000 videos, segmenting them out by by video type and production style, and discovered this among their other findings:

Shorter videos are more engaging. Engagement drops after 6 minutes.Videos with a more personal feeling are more effective than high-fidelity studio recordings.
Videos in which the instructor speaks quickly and with high enthusiasm are more engaging.Khan-style tablet drawings are more engaging than power point slides.

These new student-centered blended learning methods inspire engagement, and are a way to connect with every student right where they are while supporting progress toward grade level standards.

The first seven provide the change and a look at the old, the new, the difference and a short summary. One example from the post is quoted below.

Personalization

The Old: Administer assessment, evaluate performance, report performance, then–maybe–make crude adjustments the best you can

The New: Identifying, prioritizing, and evaluating data for each student individually–in real time

The Difference: Precision

Interesting findings from this relatively well laid out study. There are a few questions this study does not address, such as the quality of interaction, or lack thereof, when the discourse ends at #2. What about when the student demonstrates the knowledge and critical thinking with their initial response? These would be an interesting study to address what happens with that initial student reaction.
