Pedagogy - 'Disillusioned' teachers bored by chalk and talk

Pedagogy - 'Disillusioned' teachers bored by chalk and talk | Education and Peace | Scoop.it
Traditional methods do not suit modern classrooms, expert says

 

Professor Fullan identifies them as the root of the problem. But he stresses that the new methods of teaching he describes take teachers beyond being “mere facilitators” to becoming “partners” who recognise the “importance of proactively learning alongside students”.

 

“Through such partnering, teachers not only become learners themselves, but also begin to see learning through the eyes of their students,” he writes.

 

“This ‘visibility’ is essential if teachers are to continuously challenge students to reach for the next step.”

 

The report acknowledges that many of the teaching strategies it describes have been “advocated for at least a century by the likes of Dewey, Piaget, Montessori and Vygotsky”.

 

But it says that today’s conditions means they are now being widely embraced: “

 

Through the combination of the ‘push’ of traditional schooling that fails to keep students or teachers engaged, and the ‘pull’ of new pedagogies unleashed through digital access, the transformation of education systems on a broad scale becomes not only possible, but inevitable.”

This article supports the need to change from a traditional style of teaching to one which is in partnership with the student.

Kirsten Macaulay's curator insight, January 27, 2014 4:17 AM

Very interesting article which gives educators much thoughts about the methods they chose to "deliver" their classroom content.

Teacher Training in Finland: Reflections from a Recent Graduate

Teacher Training in Finland: Reflections from a Recent Graduate | Education and Peace | Scoop.it
Finland believes in high-quality teacher education. Students apply to enter teacher colleges at the end of high school. The small nation’s eight teacher preparation institutions are highly selective. Only one of ten applicants is accepted, based on multiple measures, including an essay, an entry test, an interview, and evidence of a high motivation to teach. In addition to studying liberal arts subjects and the subjects they will teach, future teachers study pedagogy, theory, and conduct research about education. They learn how to teach students with disabilities. They take the study of education seriously. They practice teaching. Preparing to become a teacher takes five years. -Diane Ravitch

Taking the study of education seriously and  holding teachers in high esteem in society  just seem to make sense. It isn't the reality in many countries.
