This could equally well have been categorised under assessment (http://www.scoop.it/t/assessment-by-peter-twining).

 

Knowing what works will become more important than knowing why it works - though we will still need theory. This has massive implications for research (as well as practice). 

 

I have to say that the notion that the challenge to privacy of big data is more like 'Minority Report' than '1984' is somewhat terrifying!

Yes. That’s right. It’s not a misspelling. “Tweaching” is on the rise. A term coined by our very own Brian Salerno at QU Online, “tweaching” refers to the use of Twitter for instruction in both online and on ground settings. According to the Faculty Focus Report (2009) on Twitter in Higher Education, up to 71.8% of college faculty expect that their use of Twitter will increase in the coming school year. Will you be “tweaching” with them?

Teacher Education in Finland

Teacher Education in Finland | Stuffaliknows | Scoop.it

Finland is generally recognized as one of the world’s highest performing nations. Over the past decade, Finnish students have been high performers on the international PISA exams.

 

 


In Finnish schools, students never take a standardized test. How is their progress assessed? By their teachers.

 

 

Finnish educators say that the key totheir success is the high quality of their teachers. Not just a star here and there, but the profession as a whole has high standards for entry and for preparation. There are no shortcuts o becoming a teacher in Finland. Teachers are highly respected, just as much as other professions.

AnnC's curator insight, September 30, 2013 7:20 PM

We need to create a culture that respects the teaching profession as much as any other as will create our future leaders.

Vrinda Boodram's curator insight, December 6, 2013 6:48 PM

I applaud the approach on education taken by Finland. Staying clear of a content-driven, test-based system is clearly  the way to go based on their success rate! Relying on standardized testing to measure students’ success only demoralizes the ability of the students (especially those who are not good test-takers), and even the teachers since they too are judged and evaluated based on how their students perform. Testing tolerance simply strips children of their confidence and teachers of their ability to creatively teach, and as a result disables children from achieving their maximum potential.

 

The respect that Finnish teachers have is also drastically different to that of the U.S. where the notorious phrase is, “those can’t do, teach.” The enforcement of educators having a Masters degree and undergoing extensive training for entry and preparation seems to be the reason why that level of respect is upheld. The fact that only one of ten teachers is accepted to teacher colleges is a clear indication of the rigour and competitiveness of the program. This type of structure ensures that only the best of the best become teachers of the future leaders of the nation.

PeterT's curator insight, August 30, 2013 8:45 AM

I have been on the BERA Council for several years so you might expect me to be pro educational research. Indeed, I do genuinly believe that education research matters and spend quite a lot of my time engaging with research. However, I think that this report helps to illustrate some of the problems with outcomes from educational research - its often wordy, self-serving and lacks punch.

 

I was hoping for a hard hitting report that gave convincing concrete examples of educational research that had impacted on practice (either directly or through the development of theory) - I wasn't convinced by what I read. :O(
