Schools are under pressure to teach creativity and conceptual thinking to students to prepare them for the 21st-century workplace.

 

But at a recent imagination summit in Los Angeles, internationally recognized education expert Sir Ken Robinson warned against the tendency to treat creativity as something you can "add on" to the classroom.

Think You're An Auditory Or Visual Learner? Maybe Not

We've all heard the theory that some students are visual learners, while others are auditory learners. And still other kids learn best when lessons involve movement.

But should teachers target instruction based on perceptions of students' strengths? Several psychologists say education could use some "evidence-based" teaching techniques, not unlike the way doctors try to use "evidence-based medicine."

Twitter and Your Online Class

Twitter and Your Online Class | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

A 2010 study conducted by Faculty Focus found that more than a third (35%) of the 1400 higher education professionals surveyed "use Twitter in some capacity," which was an increase from the previous year. While not all higher education professionals agree that social media, and particularly Twitter, is useful for learning, we are finding out more about its capabilities as instructors experiment and report on their successes and challenges.

An analysis of teacher professionalism, in light of personal learning networks and an online habitus

Discourses on teacher professionalism illustrate its contested nature, and professional traits or paradigms are heavily influenced by ongoing tensions between managerialism and teacher autonomy. Yet, a singular class teacher habitus commonly features across discourses, which directly links the mindset of teachers to paid work in physical locations, for example sites of schooling, with notions of professional autonomy clearly constructed in terms of the relationship between teacher and student. In recent years, many teachers have engaged extensively with new work, online, away from sites of schooling. The literature relies on the computer network metaphor to explain the new relationships, spaces and data arising from what some connectivists and others have termed ‘personal learning networks’ (PLNs). In identifying themselves as teachers and working around selected educational key words and concepts, these professionals are creating knowledge, identities, and social and other capital. However, online PLNs are not sites of public discourse, as access and participation are restricted by cultural codes and methods of artifact creation. Teachers online may find that, similar to their work in sites of schooling, performativity may offer them individual rewards, at the same time drawing them from micro-level generativity, to macro-level envisioning of change. The existence of PLNs raises two questions. Firstly, should we broaden teacher habitus to recognise new professional values, actions, commitments, capacities, skills, impact and collaboration, where activity in PLNs does not involve clients, stakeholders and colleagues from physical work locations? Secondly, how might we reconceptualise online work so that in future, discourses on teacher professionalism recognise teachers’ work across multiple sites, yet retain a singular teacher habitus? The lack of criticality and empirical grounding in the literature on PLNs must also be addressed, in order for
our conceptualisations of the varied work of teachers to move beyond narrow theories of e-learning.
