7 Ways Teaching Has Changed

7 Ways Teaching Has Changed | Organización y Futuro | Scoop.it

"Teachers are the arbitrators of knowledge and culture.

Knowledge and culture are each dynamic, endlessly crashing and churning.

This makes teaching significantly important and difficult work, and can leave teaching—as a craft—wide-eyed and nonplussed in response.

Worse, those outside the bubble of education can understandably struggle to understand the problem.

What are the teaching in those schools anyway? How is it any different from when I was in school?"

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 28, 2014 10:13 PM

How has teaching changed? Below are the seven key ideas. .

1. A culture of emerging literacies

2. A society that is mobile

3. A world where equity is a central theme

4. A society of constant connectivity

5. A world where the technology learns, too

6. A context that demands new credibility in an era of information

7. A culture that can seem, well, distracted

Many teachers may be overwhelmed with these changes and may require professional development to help them develop new skills that technology brings. But change has happened before and will continue to happen. The question is how are we adapting to the changes and how can we assist our students in becoming independent  learners in this new age of learning?

Schools in Finland will no longer teach 'subjects' | EDUcation CHANGE | Teaching by Topic | Organización y Futuro | Scoop.it

Durante años, Finlandia ha sido la palabra por un sistema educativo exitoso, encaramado en la cima de las tablas de clasificación internacional para la alfabetización y la aritmética.

.

Pasi Silander, gerente de desarrollo de la ciudad, explicó: "Lo que necesitamos ahora es un tipo diferente de la educación para preparar a las personas para la vida laboral.

.

"Los jóvenes usan las computadoras muy avanzadas. En el pasado los bancos tenían una gran cantidad de empleados de banca totting cifras, pero ahora que ha cambiado totalmente.

.

" Por lo tanto, tenemos que hacer los cambios en la educación que son necesarios para la industria y la sociedad moderna. "

.

Sobre temas concretos lecciones - una hora de la historia de la mañana, una hora de la geografía en la tarde - ya se están eliminando gradualmente para el 16-años de edad en las escuelas superiores de la ciudad. Ellos están siendo reemplazados por lo que los finlandeses llaman " la enseñanza fenómeno " - o la enseñanza por tema . Por ejemplo, un adolescente que estudia un curso de formación profesional podría tomar clases de "servicios de cafetería", que incluiría elementos de matemáticas, idiomas (para ayudar a atender a los clientes extranjeros), habilidades de escritura y habilidades de comunicación.

.

Más alumnos académicos se imparten temas cruz-sujetos, como la Unión Europea - que fusionar elementos de la economía, la historia (de los países involucrados), los idiomas y la geografía.

This is what school librarians have been doing forever!

María Florencia Perrone's curator insight, April 8, 2015 4:00 PM

The world around us is not labelled or divided in categories, then why is academic content? Can we not relate topics and elaborate meaning on the basis of relationships and intertwined data? 

Helen Teague's curator insight, April 13, 2015 9:11 PM

I wonder if this would work in the U.S.? Also, in Finland, students do not take standardized tests until the end of high school (Zhao, 2012, p. 111), so thankfully, perhaps the drill and kill process is diminished.
