Why new technologies could never replace great teaching

Why new technologies could never replace great teaching | Learning English | Scoop.it
Technology in education gets plenty of hype, but let's not forget the importance of teaching and learning, says Pamela Wright

 

So where do I stand as an educator, as a leader in education? The centre point of my passion is a philosophy that I instil into my staff, into the school and into every school I support. It is the child – first and foremost.

 

Teachers don't simply teach concepts and skills. Any new technology can do that.

 

Good teachers inspire our young people to be lifelong learners, creating a culture of independent enquiry with their enthusiasm and passion. I know this because I see it every day. Good teachers have the skills to know exactly how to get the best out of each and every young person in their care.

Aurore A.N Beaini's curator insight, November 20, 2013 2:45 AM

the psychological status of a student in a teaching and learning situation is definitely proven to be an essential criteria for the success and efficiency of the students outcome, therefore the more the student is working in a non-stress environment, the better his evolution will be in terms of learning quality.

The challenge from the teaching side will always be to come out with a balanced configuration between serious and game!

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 5:19 AM

Self explanatory visual on the benefits of gaming as a means of learning. Outlined are the rewards, mastery, engagement, intensity, exercise, readiness, and competitiveness. These types of graphics need to be displayed in the classroom. There's always parents who are unsure of how gaming qualifies as teaching. Can't they just sit their kid in front of an iPad all day at home? Well, in the appropriate setting, with the right direction and guidance, games are certainly good for learning. Some people just don't know that from experience yet.
