Hypocrisy in the Profession of Education

Hypocrisy in the Profession of Education | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | 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. <===

Teachers need to remain current too. Librarians can help them do this.

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 3:49 PM
Agree. Teachers must be open minded and willing to learn more and more , (a lifetime edeavour , )to kep up and be equiped to teach well their "pupils" on overall advances bat specially their field of expertize ! Be up to date all the time to teach well and really enjoy what they do . I know I have been a teacher in the past .

"no I do not think you can be as effective as an unconnected and irrelevant educator."

What Is Web 3.0 And How Will It Change Education?

What Is Web 3.0 And How Will It Change Education? | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it
We'll reach a new state of web skills when we reinvent technology tools to better enhance our personal learning. We'll be at 3.0 when schools are everywhere and not viewed as daycare.

Hi David, Keeeb is a good tool if you need to collect and organize web resources, images or video. It's better than Pinterest functionality-wise but it does not have its audience. So my advice is try it out and see if it does what you need to do.

Thanks Robin, I'm going to try ;-)
