It’s no longer enough for teachers to get a credential and then sit back and teach the same content year after year.

 

Richardson says to be part of modern learning, teachers need to actively educate themselves about the context students live in and how they can improve as educators.

“There’s never been a more amazing time to be a learner,” Richardson said. “How are we in education not running towards that in our own personal lives and embracing that?”

It’s not just about connecting on Twitter with other educators or asking for professional development about technology. If teachers are waiting for a planned PD about something they are probably already stuck. “You have to have the disposition of an eight-year old to find your own learning,” Richardson said.

Critical Thinking Exercises That Will Blow Your Students’ Minds

Critical Thinking Exercises That Will Blow Your Students’ Minds | innovation in learning | Scoop.it

Real critical thinking exercises seek truth. It takes daring and independent thought to stray from conventional thinking and discover truths previously unfound. It could be said that critical thinking is at the heart of dispelling great myths about our world and changing the way a society views and acts in their world.

The connection between the digital age and the learning process is very interesting since it goes beyond the electronic devices as a learning tool.

I consider that our goal as teachers is to use technology not only as a device to give academic knowledge, we also need to implement technology as a tool which helps the learner to be autonomous, thoughtful and proactive.
