The Evolving Role of the Teacher

The Evolving Role of the Teacher | EduInfo | Scoop.it

More teachers today are providing opportunities for their students to connect and learn in powerful ways. There is an increasing focus on collaboration, competency-based learning, use of open resources, project-based learning, and learning environments are shifting to support these new opportunities. These shifts are accelerated by access to technology that has transformed how we learn and interact with one another.

The Next Stage of Personalised Learning: a virtual tutor for every student

The Next Stage of Personalised Learning: a virtual tutor for every student | EduInfo | Scoop.it
I do not believe that any machine could be as engaging or inspiring as a good teacher. Instead, human teachers could be supported by AI tutors, so that they have more time to focus on what they do best – creating positive classroom environments, planning exciting lessons, and developing richer more personal connections with each individual student.

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, October 31, 2016 12:50 PM
Very interesting. I've been thinking for a while about how AI could help teachers with feedback. There are always issues with teacher time regarding how much personalised feedback students get, what if the feedback on some of each student's extra writing and speaking (recorded) practice was provided by AI? More practice, more feedback and more 'data' for a teacher to see on each student. 

Would this work? Would it be good? Who knows?! But it seems interesting to me. 
Mauricio Ramírez's curator insight, October 31, 2016 9:17 PM
"What if we could give every student their own virtual tutor?", this is such a profound question that drove me to think about not only my students' necessities, but my own as an English facilitator who sometimes finds it quite difficult to guide learners, give them timely feedback and prepare classes and tests. Thus, having a virtual tutor would not only be ideal, but useful in order to help students practice and therefore improve their language skills; however, my only concern up to this point would be whether Artifitial Intelligence (AI) might replace teachers, and although the author emphasized on the idea that "with AI, we might see driverless cars but we will not see teacherless classrooms.", I still have my doubts going on in my head. Worth reading anyway! ;)

Digital Education Survey | Deloitte US | EduInfo | Scoop.it
Students are not the only ones looking for more at-home learning: parents and teachers are also on board. Eighty-eight percent of parents and 84 percent of teachers are interested in having more at-home digital content available to supplement what's being taught in school. The increasingly digital behaviors of students, teachers, and parents are expanding the way learning occurs. Understanding and positioning ahead of that behavioral shift will be critical in helping educational organizations succeed in the digital future.

Having only recently for the first time taken up Blogging for an assessment item, I have become aware of its benefits in the classroom.  This diagram shows more ways in which it can be useful than I originally had realised and as such, I have now decided that adding a reflective Blog into my teaching will be of benefit to the students.  The ability to be in connection with others worldwide, will open students up to new possibilities.  I hope also then, that my Blogs and my students Blogs will benefit the wider community also.  I am reminded though that I need to ensure that the online environment that my students are involved in is a safe environment.

that it’s important for young people to become economically independent and self-sufficient. But to do that, he argues, they shouldn’t all learn the same thing. Instead, they should be learning to be adaptable, to be innovative, to flow with change, to collaborate and other globalized skills that will apply to whatever area of work they are passionate about pursuing. An education can help expose students to different life paths and support them in finding their passions, while giving them the transferable skills to attack any problem.
