Comfortable Baby Steps?

Comfortable Baby Steps? | Teachers Teaching Teachers | Scoop.it

I think everyone has certain phrases, or catchwords that tend to set them off. Some of us, of the more passionate persuasion, have phrases that send us over the edge. 

An amazingly large number of educators fully see the urgent need and agree that we need to drastically change the system. Get ready for me to go over the cliff at this point. Many say however “WE NEED TO TAKE BABY STEPS”. Why??? We are not babies. We are among the most educated group of people this country has to offer. We hold advanced degrees. We are proven thinkers and learners. Taking baby steps implies a lack of consideration, a lack of understanding, lack willingness, a lack of confidence, a lack of urgency, and most obvious to me is a lack in taking full responsibility for change. Taking baby steps to me means moving slowly enough to gauge the reactions of others. It goes to that “Teacher mentality” of “educators make no mistakes in public”. The fear of failure is often the thing that produces failure. It is a combination of all of this that has allowed the national discussion on education to be taken over by non-educators. The very baby steps educators are taking to move from a 19thcentury model of education to a model for educating kids for their future has made educators targets and not innovators. Educators are being held accountable only for the shortcomings and none of the successes. If our baby steps take us 100 years to move into the 21st century, we will need to start all over again in the 22nd.

Peu de domaines dans les affaires et dans la société qui n'a pas été affectées par la révolution des médias sociaux, même comme il a commencé il y a moins d'une décennie. De nombreuses entreprises ont réagi à cette nouvelle situation, en prenant la pleine mesure de la force et le potentiel que ces technologies représentent pour leur organisation ainsi, les wikis permettent une collaboration virtuelle plus efficace dans des projets transversaux; blogs internes, forums de discussion et des chaînes YouTube promouvoir les échanges avec le partage à la fois la connaissance comme un aperçu de chacun; campagnes virales sophistiquées possibles pour engager la relation client et la fidélité; prochaine génération de produits co-développé grâce à des processus d'innovation ouverte; et enfin les dirigeants travaillant pour définir leur stratégie d'entreprise

The Kind of STEM Teachers We Need

The Kind of STEM Teachers We Need | Teachers Teaching Teachers | Scoop.it

In a preschool class a few years back, I watched 3-year-old twin boys puzzle over a pulley with a plastic bucket on it. They were absorbed by the contraption for the full 10 minutes that I watched them. One boy would tug on the pulley cord, and the bucket would rise. Both boys would look up for several seconds, then the other one would tug on his side of the pulley cord and the bucket would descend. Another pause, this time to look down. Silence. They were not simply jerking a cord for the sake of pulling it. They were inquirers on the verge of figuring out something deeply important to them at the moment.
