Why tablets can't replace 'real world' in schools - Futurity | Educational Leadership and Technology |
Tablets are ubiquitous in schools. But a new study suggests they can't replace experiments with real-world objects when it comes to helping kids learn.

Five Big Changes to the Future of Teacher Education

Five Big Changes to the Future of Teacher Education | Educational Leadership and Technology |

Getty In the book Teaching 2030 by Barnett Berry and 12 classroom experts, the authors pinpoint specific skills educators will need to teach in the schools of tomorrow.


They say teachers must be prepared to find and adapt new technologies to engage the digital generation, as well as work across traditional subject areas using project learning.


They must be able to use data and evidence to inform their practice and know how to work in both virtual learning environments and brick-and-mortar schools. And they’ll need to collaborate with community-based organizations and work in schools that provide all kinds of other services for students and their families.


Along those lines, Berry has outlined five changes he believes need to be made to the future of teacher education.

The first point is interesting. Only 70% of the 170, 000 American education school graduates enter classrooms. I suspect the Canadian percentage might be similar.

It is so true, Gust! Teaching is not transmitting the knowledge, it is igniting the light for learning through collaboration, curation and teacher's passion for learning!
