How Matchmaking Technology Can Help Reduce Teacher Turnover

How Matchmaking Technology Can Help Reduce Teacher Turnover | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it
How Matchmaking Technology Can Help Reduce Teacher Turnover - The Huffington Post

 

In fact,30 percent of new teachers quit before three years and almost 50 percent quit before five years.

 

The biggest reason for leaving? Nope, not pay. It's a little more complex than that. The biggest reason for leaving was the culture.

 

It was satisfaction with working conditions, which included relationships with colleagues, quality of professional development, quality of the curriculum, building conditions, etc.

Don't Confuse Technology With Teaching

Don't Confuse Technology With Teaching | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it
Though universities are rushing to embrace online courses, true education requires one mind engaging with another.

 

Educators are coaches, personal trainers in intellectual fitness. The value we add to the media extravaganza is like the value the trainer adds to the gym or the coach adds to the equipment. We provide individualized instruction in how to evaluate and make use of information and ideas, teaching people how to think for themselves.

 

Just as coaching requires individual attention, education, at its core, requires one mind engaging with another, in real time: listening, understanding, correcting, modeling, suggesting, prodding, denying, affirming, and critiquing thoughts and their expression.
