Digital Experiences and Expectations of Tomorrow’s Teachers

Digital Experiences and Expectations of Tomorrow’s Teachers | K-12 Web Resources | Scoop.it

This new report, “Learning in the 21st Century: Digital Experiences and Expectations of Tomorrow’s Teachers,” is the latest in the series and provides new insights that will inform college and university based teacher preparation programs as well as the induction and professional development processes within K-12 schools and districts. Tomorrow’s teachers may have the keys to finally unlock the potential of technology to transform teaching and learning, but much depends upon their experiences in their preparation program and how well future school leadership can support their expectations for essential technology tools and resources.

Interesting report which seems to be highlighting the failure of teacher training course to adequately incorporate and prepare new teachers with and for the use of digital technologies.

Ilana Rosansky's curator insight, August 9, 2013 1:09 AM

I'd say that an opportunity to 'unlock the potential' is a real attraction.... The question is: how many will seize the opportunity?

Ben Bempong's curator insight, July 30, 2015 3:20 PM

Technology looks like the future of impacting teachers and experiences in the classroom.  Preparation is very key in route to having good induction and professional development processes with the K-12 schools and districts.

Just in time for back-to-school!  


Using our Canvas LMS, I also utilize the survey feature to obtain feedback after the first four night classes. There are five questions that help inform my teaching:

  1. The class met all stated learning objectives on the agenda.
  2. The learning exercises in this class supported the learning objectives
  3. The class provoked me to think about the topic in a new way.
  4. This class gave me practical information that I can use "as is" or adapt and use as a student or future teacher.
  5. What questions do you still have?
