Hypocrisy in the Profession of Education

Hypocrisy in the Profession of Education | Pedagogy and technology of online learning | Scoop.it
Whenever I think of a teacher, I also think of a scholar. It has always been apparent to me that if one is to be an effective teacher, one must continually learn. Of course that is not always a pat...

 

As educators we must be learners first. If we are to be better educators, we must first be better learners. We may not always have a choice in what we learn.

 

After so long not being involved with learning, many educators do not know how much they do not know.

 

===> How can they make decisions on what they need to learn, if they are unaware of the existence of many of the things they need to know? <===

 

===> To be better educators, we first need to be better learners. <===

 

 

The biggest hypocrisy of the Education Profession is that the educators too often have become poor learners ===> unwilling to leave their comfort zones to improve their learning. <===

Perhaps you need to teach yourself before you can teach others. 

MrAnalytic's comment, May 23, 2013 2:18 PM
This is very very true! I strongly agree with the part where they wouldn't want to leave their comfort zones!
Julia da Silva's comment, May 25, 2013 10:49 AM

Five Steps to Improving Online Group Work Assignments

Five Steps to Improving Online Group Work Assignments | Pedagogy and technology of online learning | Scoop.it
Online Group Projects – Yikes! You can hear the moans and groans of students echoing through your computer monitors as you start the first week of your online course. The reasons for requiring a group project vary from one discipline to another, but there are educational and career motives for requiring group projects. Students will have an opportunity to develop team skills, improve communication skills, and leverage their own personal interests and experiences to contribute to a group project.

Coaching Strategies to Enhance Online Discussions

Coaching Strategies to Enhance Online Discussions | Pedagogy and technology of online learning | Scoop.it
I am not an athlete. I lack coordination and have some physical limitations. My husband, on the other hand, is an excellent skier. He isn’t a teacher but he believed I could learn to ski, convinced me to try, and partnered with me in the learning process, like the best teachers do. Learning to ski taught me 10 coaching strategies bridging four areas: establishing a safe space to learn, sharing responsibility, providing feedback, and empowering the learner. I apply these strategies to facilitating online discussions, but they relate to a range of learning contexts.
