Looks more like a walk down an exhibit hall of vendors than skill/talent tied to teaching & learning.

If every teacher had this skill set, that would dramatically change teaching and learning. The "vendors" are, contrary to your suggestion, mostly free technologies that can and do change teaching and learning.

These and many other tools are available. But if you are a teacher, what do you think? Is it really necessary to have all these skills? There is so much content readily available online and if you can organise to prepare materials in teams, or have access to a PLN on or offline, then you can share the load. 

 

Some teachers and content creators have specific skills and their expertise can be used or accessed by anyone. Personally, I think it's good for teachers to be aware of the digital possibilities for their teaching context, but it is generally unrealistic for anyone to expect all teachers to become skilled in so many different areas. 

 

Is it not better to pick fewer areas more relevant to you and focus on them? Be a master of a few areas useful to you, not a jack of all trades feeling stressed that you are master of none.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s curator insight, July 9, 2016 7:33 AM
The 21st Century educator has to adjust to the ever changing teaching and learning environments with clear focus on communication, collaboration, compromise and cultures of the learners.
