They jury is still out on what schools of the future will consider core knowledge. What is certain is student-centered and relevant learning. More than a simple trend, personalized learning points to better student-teacher relationships and personal knowledge profiles. Technology can do a lot but dialogue and constructivism are here to stay.

Una interesante entrevista a George Siemens. De qué se trata el conocimiento y como pensar de manera compleja el ámbito de lo educativo y el aprender. 

Jeroen Boon's curator insight, January 12, 2014 2:34 PM

Connectivism is a learning theory for the digital age. Learning has changed over the last several decades. The theories of behaviourism, cognitivism, and constructivism provide an effect view of learning in many environments. They fall short, however, when learning moves into informal, networked, technology-enabled arena.

It is a great question and not just an American issue. There are likely several reasons, but two I think about are the use of part-time contracts as a fiscal and control tool and many young teachers graduating do not enter teaching. Their degree is valuable outside School.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 16, 6:44 PM

Teaching is about a calling which is full of wonder and awe. That being said, teachers cannot do what they are told all the time. They need to get out on the edge. What I experienced with School managers is they did not like that. They wanted serfs who did what they were told and answered dutifully.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, February 17, 10:52 AM

Our teachers are overwhelmed with directives from building and district administrators, as well as the state and federal government.  Held to high levels of accountability for students passing a standardized test, it is no wonder many comply to survive.  

 

As a building administrator, I struggled to integrate the myriad of mandates into a  streamlined package that would enable teachers to meet the "firehose" of requirements from  all the different agencies.  

 

Our teachers need time to collaborate with others and to reflect on their practice.  They deserve timely, positive feedback and opportunities to grow professionally.  

 

Perhaps the best teachers do not do what they are told....and the best administrators help teachers to discriminate and choose how they can meet the mandates and maintain their professional expertise on what works for  the students in THEIR classroom.
