This article is very insightful. It clearly explains and demonstrates the differences that have occured in education over the last 20 years, particularly in the context of technology. Mobile learning is becoming more prominent in classrooms and requires teachers to be active participants in the use of technology.

Carolyn said: "Pretty cool graphic" Thanks for the encouragement. Idea: Would it work and be useful for a Padagogy Wheel to be customised for the needs of those with Dyslexia. Could we change action verbs, activities and App selections for each Cognitive Domain Category as well as specialised PD for teachers on how to design interactions with those apps to achieve Redefinition in the SAMR model. Also PD about how to motivate these learners. Hmmmm could that be a great learning design model to help these learners? .... what do you think?

Terrible Times Lie Ahead for Bad Teachers

Terrible Times Lie Ahead for Bad Teachers | Emerging Classroom | Scoop.it

by Felix Jacomino

 

As I prepare a presentation on 21st Century Skills, I find myself dealing with having to first be clear on what they are NOT. Only because for many, the term "21st Century" is synonymous with technology. In this post, I won't get into the details of why it's not.

 

What I would like to share is my realization that terrible times lie ahead for bad teachers. Conversely, there has never been a more exiting time for a good educator than today and the near future!

 

In order to make a statement like that, I owe it to my readers to give my definition of each type of teacher.

 

Bad teachers:

Do not want to learn new things.

Have "the book" lead instruction and feel the need to always stick to it.

Are comfortable doing the same lessons (the same way) year after year.

Never step out of their comfort zone. Live in their own bubble and do not see the need to live outside of it.

Only teach facts and assess the ability to memorize those facts ("Any teacher that can be replaced by a computer, deserves to be." -David Thornburg). 

Design tests to be easily gradeable.

Think that all progress in education are "fads."

Do not learn new things... oops, I already wrote that! It bears repeating because SOOOO much can be learned from other colleagues!

 

Good teachers:

Care whether their students find the learning relative.

Are ALWAYS looking for new ways to engage their students.

Embrace quality professional development as often as they can.

Learn from and share with other educators.

Have gotten this far into this post and are nodding their heads ;-)

 

My hopes are that we QUICKLY get to the point where teachers who do not inspire and engage will be seen as employees who are simply not doing their jobs and be let go. Or, they may move to schools that don't "get it" (yet) and find a safe haven there for now. Either way, it's time for ALL teachers to pick a side. And yes, there's plenty of room on the "good side" for bad teachers to make the change. Here's hoping!

Interesting take, and of course true, i.e. "technology" is not 21st Century.  It is almost a constant - technology facilitates (or can, used correctly) good teaching, and offers opportunities to add variety, flexibility and relevance.  Used badly it can be irrelevant.

* Virtually all (99%) AP and NWP teachers in this study agree with the notion that 'the internet enables students to access a wider range of resources than would otherwise be available,' and 65% agree that 'the internet makse today's students more self-sufficient.'

* Fewer teachers, but still a majority of this sample (60%), agree with the assertion that today's technologies make it harder for students to find credible sources of information.

The End of Tech Integrationists = The Beginning of Innovation Specialists

The End of Tech Integrationists = The Beginning of Innovation Specialists | Emerging Classroom | Scoop.it

By Ben Stern

 

"I’ve received a lot of feedback on my recent prediction that technology integrationwould disappear in the years to come. I made this prediction because well-integrated technology causes technology to disappear. It becomes a means to the end of better learning. It is never an end in and of itself. I still believe this. However, I should have clarified what I think will replace it – namely, innovation.

 

"Because technology is a mere tool, effective usage requires training in the art that it serves. Hence, Technology Integrationists who do their jobs well spend as much or more time dealing with creative, innovative pedagogy as they do with the technology itself. “Technology Integrationist” is a bit of a misnomer.

 

"Instead, schools should be hiring Innovation Specialists. In so doing, they will make their aims in hiring this person explicit. Innovation, not more technology, is the goal. Ironically, by focusing away from technology, it will be used for effectively.
