Why educating the educators is complex

Why educating the educators is complex | new ideas and discoveries | Scoop.it
Teaching is both craft and profession -- and more.

 

Thus teaching is a deeply social and emotional activity. You have to know your students and be able to read them quickly, and from that reading make decisions to slow down or speed up, stay with a point or return to it later, connect one student’s comment to another’s.

 

Simultaneously, you are assessing on the fly Susie’s silence, Pedro’s slump, Janelle’s uncharacteristic aggressiveness. Students are, to varying degrees, also learning from each other, learning all kinds of things, from how to carry oneself to how to multiply mixed numbers.

 

How teachers draw on this dynamic interaction varies depending on their personal style, the way they organize their rooms, and so on—but it is an ever-present part of the work they do.

Почему обучение педагогов является сложным?

DPG plc's curator insight, December 10, 2013 7:00 AM

In our expereince those who educate others and facilitate learning are great at using different tools however they must be taken on a journey that creates both confidence in using the tools and answers the WIIFM. The demands and needs of our students are changing and we need to ensure we keep up with these demands and in fact be early adopters and not laggards when it comes to change.

Adrian Bertolini's curator insight, December 9, 2013 6:48 PM

I coach teachers to use checklists as a way of articulating the step by step actions the students would take to achieve a project. The intention is to give away the thinking they should do as they successfully accomplish their learning tasks.

I do not recommend Prezi as the program access is just as poor as the costumer service.

 

I would recommend additional programs that would add additional dimension to the interactive experience would be Evernote and Zotero. What programs would you add?
