Effective teachers for all classrooms? It’s time for teacherpreneurs - Global Education & Skills Forum

Effective teachers for all classrooms? It’s time for teacherpreneurs - Global Education & Skills Forum | Lund's K-12 Technology Integration | Scoop.it
Effective teachers for all classrooms? It’s time for teacherpreneurs


Education conversations around the globe are focused on how to recruit, evaluate, and develop effective teachers. And for good reason. A steady drip of empirical evidence has shown that teachers are the most crucial in-school factor in student learning.

But in many cases education policy leaders have fixated on firing bad teachers and recruiting better ones. They have paid far less attention to spreading the expertise of the many effective teachers already teaching—or to providing them with opportunities to lead without leaving their classrooms and profession.

The Teacherpreneur

Enter the teacherpreneur—who teaches students regularly but has the time, space, and reward to incubate and execute his or her own ideas. Imagine a public school teacher who has the respect (and income potential) of an endowed chair at a research university and whose pedagogical and policy expertise drives innovative, collaborative projects that spread effective teaching practices.

There are at least six sound reasons for this bold brand of teacher leadership:

Researchers have proven that students learn more when their teachers collaborate in deep and authentic ways;
Principals alone cannot address demands of 21st-century learning and accountability;
Top-performing nations invest in teachers as leaders;
The most effective teacher evaluation systems are driven by master teachers;
Teachers trust their teaching colleagues more than anyone else to help them improve their practice; and
Large percentages of teachers are interested in leading without leaving the classroom.

Steps to Creating the Conditions for Deep, Rigorous, Applied Learning | Infographic | Lund's K-12 Technology Integration | Scoop.it

Many school administrators, teachers and parents want the education provided to children to be high quality, rigorous and connected to the world outside the classroom. Teachers are trying to provide these elements in various ways, but a group of schools calling themselves the “Deeper Learning Network” have codified some of what they believe are essential qualities of deep learning (check out how students lead parent teacher conferences in this model).

 

Some of these qualities include learning designated content, critical thinking, communication skills, collaborating effectively and connecting learning to real-world experiences.

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools | Lund's K-12 Technology Integration | Scoop.it

Teachers who work silently, don’t tweet, blog and discuss ideas with people around the world are obsolete. Teachers are no longer working locally but globally and it’s our job to share what we do and see what others are doing. If a teacher is no longer learning then he shouldn’t be teaching other people.

 

We should all be tweeting, blogging and sharing what works and doesn’t work, get and give advice to and from co-workers around the world. We should constantly be improving our craft because professional development isn’t a 3 hour workshop once a month but a lifelong process.

 

“We do not learn from experience…we learn from reflecting on experience.” -John Dewey

Getting Kids Engaged with Primary Sources | Cool Tools | Lund's K-12 Technology Integration | Scoop.it

The U.S. National Archives Experience Digital Vaults (pictured above) offers students a good introduction to discovering and working with primary source materials. Rather than turning kids loose on millions of records in the National Archives, Digital Vaults focuses on a curated collection of 1,200 items.

 

Within the site, there are activities designed to help students discover important connections between primary sources. One section, Pathways Challenges, provides quizzes that ask kids to analyze a specific resource and then find the related document within the collection. Teachers and students can create their own quizzes or take advantage of the premade challenges.

 

Students who create free Digital Vaults accounts can collect primary source documents and images and use them to create digital posters and videos within the available templates.

Critical Thinking is Thinking On Purpose!
Critical thinking involves mindful communication, problem-solving, and a freedom from bias or egocentric tendency. It’s clear, rational, logical, and independent thinking. It’s about improving thinking by analyzing, assessing, and reconstructing how we think.
You can apply critical thinking to any kind of subject, problem, or situation you choose.

Sound advice here on how to build critical thinking skills into the curriculum from an early age to support the growth of the next generation of digital social scientists & citizen researchers. This is great but still leaves us with a problem about how to equip established social researchers with an understanding of the potential & challenges in social media research, especially those who serve on IRBs granting access and clearance via ethics panels to new research projects.
