Change is also about the change process. Something that might not always stand out in change is there is structure. Structure is not always rigid and enforced. The structure described in this article moved from one that was centralized to one that was about the social connections within the particular school. Alberta's school reformers could learn something here.

7 Ways #Reflection Gives #Students #Ownership of their Learning

7 Ways #Reflection Gives #Students #Ownership of their Learning | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it
It wasn’t until I actively started to reflect, both by myself in writing each and every day, and also with my wife at the end of the day, that I could open up my world to new possibilities. Reflecting helped me recognize where I was currently at (in my job, in blogging, in being a dad and husband) versus where I wanted to be.

If we don’t reflect, we tend to go through the motions, not conscious of what steps we can take to get better or move forward.

The same goes for students. When students are allowed, given time, supported, and praised for their reflection, something changes. They begin to own their experience, instead of being forced into a series of choices they aren’t sure about.

Documenting and Reflecting on Learning | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it
I am a strong proponent of encouraging learners of all ages to engage in reflective practice. Learners do not just receive information only at the time it is given; they absorb information in many different ways, often after the fact, through reflection. The most powerful learning often happens when students self-monitor, or reflect. Students may…

The word engage is different than empower. To engage suggests there is an internal motive on the student's part to further their learning. They wonder about something that interests them. Teaching is about relating to each student and helping them bring wonder to life.

When robots replace teachers

When robots replace teachers | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it
We’ve known for decades now that eventually, robots will replace all of us.

Robots in factories. Robots that will clean your house. Robots that will diagnose your illness. Robots that will write poetry and compose symphonies and paint church ceilings–and then robots that create the robots that write poetry and compose symphonies and paint church ceilings.

And artificial intelligence is also coming. Machine learning will guide your life in ways that you may not notice–more of a gentle nudge in the direction of the fastest way to avoid traffic and get to work, or a suggested alternative product to the one you’re currently browsing on Amazon. These algorithms will be embedded in robots, of course, to diagnose those illnesses and write that poetry. We already have bots that write poems on twitter.

We have algorithmic art, too. Soon we’ll program the imminent robots to act out these otherwise purely digital tasks for the comfort of anthropomorphism. Not only will they know if you’re sad, but they knew you were going to be sad before it happened. They monitor vital signs, evaluate family history, your productivity, sleep patterns, and more, ultimately accessing trillions and trillions of bytes of always-accruing data for patterns.

Six Ways the Teacher's Role is Changing 

Six Ways the Teacher's Role is Changing  | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it

During this time of significant educational change, we are forced to ask ourselves, what is the role of the teacher?

Teachers continue to be central to learning, but the role is changing significantly. Our children still need to develop real skills and real knowledge, but they also need to be self-reliant, resilient, and fully capable of re-inventing themselves. This means students must learn how to self-direct their learning.

So if students are self-directing their learning, what's the role of the teacher?

Teachers build the curriculum/lessons with the individual student based on his/her needs and interests rather than move through a fixed curriculum en masse.


Teachers provide the experiences and tools to access new knowledge in specific areas of interest as facilitators of individual pathways, rather than being a provider of the content or expert in one or every area,Teachers become experts in how people learn, not only in teaching.


Teachers support a community of learners in teams, possibly of multiple ages, rather than alone in classrooms with fixed grades of students.


Teachers have more autonomy over their daily schedule, and can be flexible to adjust their schedules to support student needs.


Teachers provide opportunities for real-world, connected, practical learning rather than isolated academics.
These are the types of changes in the teacher's role that are fundamental to developing students who are capable of independent learning and reinvention in a rapidly changing world.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, May 6, 2:46 PM

While I'm weary and doubtful of specialized curricula that position themselves as possible silver bullets, I welcome the thinking that teachers who are supported in their own (personalized) learning and given the gift of time to examine what needs to be taught and then determine which resources and strategies are most suitable for all of their students (TPACK, anyone?) will be more successful. If that's what we're calling deeper learning for teachers, so be it and make it so.
