5 Things Students Expect From Their Teachers

5 Things Students Expect From Their Teachers | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Is there "a difference between a 'student' and a 'learner,' between a 'teacher' and an 'educator.'
Teachers want their students to be responsible and curious. They expect their students to follow class rules and do their homework. But what about the reverse? What do students want from their teachers?"

Some wonderful questions that I look forward to answering.

I consider points two and three absolutely necessary! Points one, four and five are more difficult to maintain for six hours per day each day of the school year for all students.

The Stages of the Learning Independence Continuum

The Stages of the Learning Independence Continuum | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

The Institute @ CESA #1 is introducing the stages of the Learning Independence Continuum in their blog following the release of the white paper, The Learning Independence Continuum.  In their first post they provide an overview with the remaining posts focusing on one of the stages of the continuum.

 

> Motivation

> Engagement

> Self-efficacy

> Ownership

> Independence

 

"In personalized learning environments, learning activities will fall all along this continuum – at times it’s more important for the educator to drive the work, at others, the learner will take the driver’s seat. However, in order for this to happen, all of the characteristics along the continuum should be developed and nurtured in each learner."

I wonder if there isn't another stage here - or maybe it's not on the continuum at all, but somewhere else: interdependence.

I'm starting to think we don't typically learn anything independently - but through interactions with other people, or the knowledge someone else has created.

Angie - Yes! You are right - interdependence. How to collaborate and work in teams. There is a large push to create independent learners and expert learners. Now you have me thinking.
