Subverting the System: Student and Teacher as Equals

Subverting the System: Student and Teacher as Equals | Learning 2gether | Scoop.it
One educator tries a different approach: “It’s a different way of approaching education, with educators not being the controlling force. It’s about breaking down boundaries and seeing yourself as an equal. We’re all just doing the best we can to learn and to try to form a narrative with cohesion and meaning.”
Nancy Jones's insight:

“Teaching is as much an internal journey, with the relationship between humans in a class as essential as pedagogy. Are you willing to see yourself on equal footing? Everyone is capable of that mindset. It really comes down to what you trust: Do you trust the process, and do you trust the students?”- This is REALLY 21st century learning with the teacher as a co-earner and the students having choices for leadership in the process.

Why It's Time To Start Teaching Students How To Think - Edudemic

Why It's Time To Start Teaching Students How To Think - Edudemic | Learning 2gether | Scoop.it
As an elementary teacher, I can’t help but notice that children today want quick answers and do not take the time to think things through.

Nancy Jones's insight:

We need parent buy - in on this at our school. They are just interested I rewards, not process or  hard work.

Making it Fun!

In an age where children expect everything to be instant, their responses become the same without taking time to process the information first.

Analysis and synthesis take time...and are critical to problem solving, as we all know. How to teach these higher level thinking processes is key to helping students become successful independent learners.
