Hypocrisy in the Profession of Education

Hypocrisy in the Profession of Education | History Education Resources | Scoop.it
Whenever I think of a teacher, I also think of a scholar. It has always been apparent to me that if one is to be an effective teacher, one must continually learn. Of course that is not always a pat...

 

As educators we must be learners first. If we are to be better educators, we must first be better learners. We may not always have a choice in what we learn.

 

After so long not being involved with learning, many educators do not know how much they do not know.

 

===> How can they make decisions on what they need to learn, if they are unaware of the existence of many of the things they need to know? <===

 

===> To be better educators, we first need to be better learners. <===

 

 

The biggest hypocrisy of the Education Profession is that the educators too often have become poor learners ===> unwilling to leave their comfort zones to improve their learning. <===

Perhaps you need to teach yourself before you can teach others.

This is very very true! I strongly agree with the part where they wouldn't want to leave their comfort zones!

Agree. Teachers must be open minded and willing to learn more and more , (a lifetime edeavour , )to kep up and be equiped to teach well their "pupils" on overall advances bat specially their field of expertize ! Be up to date all the time to teach well and really enjoy what they do . I know I have been a teacher in the past .

"no I do not think you can be as effective as an unconnected and irrelevant educator."

NETS for Teachers

NETS for Teachers | History Education Resources | Scoop.it

ISTE's NETS for Teachers (NETS•T) are the standards for evaluating the skills and knowledge educators need to teach, work, and learn in an increasingly connected global and digital society.

 

As technology integration continues to increase in our society, it is paramount that teachers possess the skills and behaviors of digital age professionals.

 

===> Moving forward, teachers must become comfortable being co-learners with their students and colleagues around the world. <===

Wayne Pollock's insight:

A teacher is no longer the master of knowledge, only the facilitator who can guide the student away from the overwhelming amount of irrelevant information towards useful digital content.

I first connected with ISTE before they were international back in the 80's. I've worked as an ISTE consultant for over a decade. Great people and powerful lobby for ed-tech!

It's not about computer labs, it's about imbedding the technology into our content.
