The Shift of the Role of the Teacher

The Shift of the Role of the Teacher | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

We know today’s students will have to create their jobs, not look for jobs. They will compete with others around the globe. They will have jobs replaced by outsourcing and technology if their skills are easily replicated or duplicated.  To succeed, students will need creativity, communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and entrepreneurship.


They will need to be able to adapt to change, be resilient and able to work effectively in a variety of environments.

Great tips on how to facilitate collaborative learning. Learners that work collaborativley are engaged in their learning and have better learning outcomes. 

Marina Cousins's curator insight, April 10, 2014 8:06 PM

I liked this article, as it highlighted to me the importance of collaborative learning is much better than individual learning.  As I have mentioned several times, the learning and assessment that takes place within my workplace has a strong behaviourist foundation of learning and repeating key words and actions to pass an assessment (it is a very individual approach to learning).

 

Many of my colleagues view this experience of learning & assessment in a negative way.  What are some of the ways to overcome this negative view of learning?

 

After reading this article, I will seriously consider using a collaborative learning style within my workplace (if I get the opportunity).  The advantage of using real world problems or clinical incidents is that it offers the learner the opportunitity to improve their critical thinking skills and problem-solving ability.  

 

Therefore, by using collaborative learning you can apply the following learning theories of cognitivism, constructivism, objectivism.

Hazel Kuveya's curator insight, April 10, 2014 9:22 PM

Keeping the groups at moderate levels will ensure an effective exchange of ideas and participation in all involved, I can echo the same statement that two heads are better than one. It is also interesting to learn that collaborative teams attain higher level thinking and preserve information for longer periods as compared to  their individual counterparts., yes the use of technology makes collaborative learning manageable.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, September 30, 2014 10:40 AM

Without forgetting the relational nature of learning and teaching. Is it accountability or responsibility? Or is it a combining both? Judith Butler speaks about giving an account of one's self which is the way we respond and are responsible for learning.

The good folks in Stanford figured out the reason for so much 'good thinking' and innovation in Silicon valley wasn't just the talent pool available - it was HOW people met.  

Simply, people who worked for different companies met at school events, sports events, kids games etc and just started talking.  These 'ACCIDENTAL COLLISIONS' were the source of a lot of overlap thinking and spurred key innovation practices which Stanford has now tried to replicate it its own new campus.
