One has only to watch the developement of their own children to realize the powerful influence a commited teacher can have on their future maturity.
Carmen Arias 's comment, March 1, 2013 1:17 PM
A chid teacher is at the same time tutor, mentor and counselor so responsability is stronger at that primary stage of learning. A child cannot choose their teacher. That´s why their task is so overwhelmingly relevant
Mark E. Deschaine, PhD's curator insight, August 5, 2015 10:53 PM

Wonderful article!  Attending to lesson design is vital.  We must consider cognitive demand.  Principles of adult learning appear to be quite related to those for children.

"The technology behind Augmented Reality is taking a real-world view and enhancing it with computer-generated imagery. Whether this is done by using a computer monitor and camera or fitted goggles to imprint imagery in the lenses, augmenting in this manner has great possibilities for a variety of tasks.

Educators of all kinds are implementing this technology and the progress has been nothing short of excellent."

Simply said, this is a great article!

Allan Shaw's curator insight, February 17, 2013 12:38 AM

Perhaps our time, the here and now is redolent of times gone past where education had to face significant public criticism and attempt significant adjustments. The early 20th sentury in the USA was such a time.  Educators need to lead from a firm values base and in line with what is best for students.

Lou Salza's curator insight, February 18, 2013 7:01 PM

1. The paradox of high unemployment and a war for talent continues.

We don’t have a jobs crisis in the world, we have a skills crisis. Some clear evidence from this report.

45% of US employers say lack of skills is the “main reason” for entry-level vacanciesOnly 42% of worldwide employers believe new graduates are adequately prepared for work.

This data echoes the data we hear regularly from clients. Companies need to invest heavily in internal development programs to stay competitive. Our research shows that the training industry grew by 12% this year, the highest level in 9 years.

This research also shows that employers would be willing to pay new workers 22% higher salaries if they did have the skills they need. Employers want “ready made” employees.

2. Worldwide educational institutions are out of sync with employer needs.

While 42% of employers believe newly educated workers are ready for work, 72% of educational institutions do. This is an enormous mis-match. Primary and secondary educational institutions are not keeping in touch with corporate recruiters and the needs of business.

Again our research validates this completely. Most of our clients are investing heavily in new corporate universities, onboarding programs, and what we call “continuous learning” programs. In fact the L&D industry is in the middle of a renaissance, as companies try to reinvent all types of training around new internet technologies.

3. Students don’t perceive that traditional education methods drive job skills.

The #1 cited way (60%) students believe they learn skills is through “on the job training.” (Our reserach shows that 72% of business managers say the same thing.) 58% cite that “hands-on learning” is best.

Lectures are the lowest rated learning method (30%) tied with “traditional online learning” (30%).

Unfortunately most colleges still rely heavily on lectures and the “for-profit” distance learning institutions rely heavily on “traditional online learning.” (Only 24% of academic program graduates say that they use hands-on learning in their program.)
