How Teaching Is Changing: 15 Examples

How Teaching Is Changing: 15 Examples | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"It’s tempting to say that no matter how much technology pushes on education, every teacher will always need to know iconic teacher practices like assessment, curriculum design, classroom management, and cognitive coaching.

This may end up being true...Below are 15 tasks that are less skill-based. and a bit more conceptual, collectively representing how teaching is changing."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 6, 2014 2:50 AM

I suspect that every teacher has seen major change over the last few years. This post provides a look at changes that have happened, or are in the process. 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

Annie Nguyen's curator insight, March 18, 10:12 AM

It is true that nowadays, technology and social media is a big part of our lives. However, I disagree with the author's idea. I think that class work and social media should not be connected so deeply. For example, having an online research homework once in a while is fine. However, such implements would have many disadvantges. Firstly, students would take advantage of it and go elsewhere while accessing Twitter to do their assigned work. They may log into Twitter and view other materials according to personal interest instead of completing what was assigned to them. Books and papers prevent this from happening and ensure that the students focus on doing their work. Secondly, it is too early to be using social media in schools of students from age 6-16. They are still considered as "children", and should not be using social media as yet. Young immature students may use plagirism of another student's work or someone else's online wiwthout permission. Or in another case, while the class is having a discussion, one student can just wander elsewhere, as stated in the first point. If the students take an interest in digital, they would have a chance to come in contact with that subject in university or college. At that point, they are matured and would handle social media properly. Team building games should be done physically instead of cyberly, as through the computer screen, it is difficult for students to know each other. To communicate with the students, teacher could just simply contact their parents if the student is absent from class. It is true that many youngsters nowadays are fond of social media being introduced into their education, but my personal opinion is that most of the classwork should be done on books and paper.
