Hannah Jacobs's curator insight, May 19, 6:28 PM
Think. Pair. Share.  A simple idea that allows students to teach other students and learn from each other as well.
Stacey Mendan's curator insight, May 27, 10:04 PM

I am a big fan of peer-to-peer teaching. There is plenty of evidence to suggest: (i) we learn effectively when being taught by our peers; (ii) teaching someone a concept is an effective form of consolidation.  However facilitating peer-to-peer learning can be challenging so guidance and advice can be useful.

Once considered the skill of the future, coding is now a necessity for most emerging career fields. If learning to code is like learning a foreign language, then it follows that it might be easier to learn when you're young. And now there's a robot for that.

Six Ways the Teacher's Role is Changing 

Six Ways the Teacher's Role is Changing  | STEM | Scoop.it

During this time of significant educational change, we are forced to ask ourselves, what is the role of the teacher?

Teachers continue to be central to learning, but the role is changing significantly. Our children still need to develop real skills and real knowledge, but they also need to be self-reliant, resilient, and fully capable of re-inventing themselves. This means students must learn how to self-direct their learning.

So if students are self-directing their learning, what's the role of the teacher?

Teachers build the curriculum/lessons with the individual student based on his/her needs and interests rather than move through a fixed curriculum en masse.


Teachers provide the experiences and tools to access new knowledge in specific areas of interest as facilitators of individual pathways, rather than being a provider of the content or expert in one or every area,Teachers become experts in how people learn, not only in teaching.


Teachers support a community of learners in teams, possibly of multiple ages, rather than alone in classrooms with fixed grades of students.


Teachers have more autonomy over their daily schedule, and can be flexible to adjust their schedules to support student needs.


Teachers provide opportunities for real-world, connected, practical learning rather than isolated academics.
These are the types of changes in the teacher's role that are fundamental to developing students who are capable of independent learning and reinvention in a rapidly changing world.

During a time of significant educational change, this article addresses the contemporary question: "What is the real role of the teacher?" Teachers continue to be central to learning and students still need to develop real skills and real knowledge, however 21st century learners also need to be self-reliant, resilient, and fully capable of re-inventing themselves, meaning that students must learn how to self-direct their learning.

Early in February, I decided it was time to tackle the messiest area of our makerspace. Nope, it’s not our maker supply storage, thanks to Leslie Terronez, we cleaned that up last year. It’s not our littleBits cabinet (although, yes, it needs frequent re-organization.) It’s a little old area, I’ve been tinkering with since 2015…..
