Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 17, 10:48 PM

I agree with the final paragraph which suggests that innovation is just the latest in a litany of buzzwords. This is most often promoted by the so-called experts who are not in the classrooms. It is easy to sit outside, look in, and pretend one knows what is happening. We need less of this and more support for teaching. What is happening in School is managing and not leading. It is stating imperatives rather than working with and conversing with teachers.

 

@ivon_ehd1

Elaine Roberts, Ph.D's curator insight, September 18, 10:21 AM

"Innovation" has lost its luster just as "awesome" has lost in true sense of awe. When everything is "awesome," nothing is. When everyone--in business and in schools--is straining towards "innovation" we will lose sight of how to be innovative or what is truly innovative.

6. Embrace that there is no “best” way. While certain hallmarks of teaching and content don’t change, literally every other layer of education does, from the standards themselves, to district “pushes,” available technology, and even what are accepted as “best practices.” So maybe a better way to put it is, embrace change.

Linda Alexander's curator insight, September 15, 9:35 PM

There should be alternative paths to teaching for individuals with college degrees, especially in math, science & technical skill areas.  The caveat is that these job candidates must pass some sort of content area test, showcase their knowledge of the curriculum development & student assessment processes and demonstrate classroom management skills during the hiring process. Frankly, I don't believe classroom management skills are a given without hours upon hours of observation and practice. And I also agree that the for-profit model, as in charter school operations, doesn't fare very well.  However, the independent schools have used "content specialists" with college degrees for decades with enormous success.  If the higher education schools consistently provided top-shelf teacher candidates, the issue would dissolve all by itself. 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 15, 10:06 PM

It is likely we need to rethink the way teachers are prepared for the classroom, but no preparation is not an option. We already are losing many teachers and the challenges are changing rapidly.

Growth mindset should be a philosophy in teaching and learning. Does it replace pedagogy? I don't think so, but I think they work together. Max van Manen's work in the area of thoughtful pedagogy fits well with growth mindset.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 18, 12:47 PM

We should realize other governments are failing our Schools, teachers, and students, hence the communities they live in. We should not just ask where male teachers have gone. We should ask, "What are the reasons male teachers left the profession?" This is not just about male teachers leaving and not entering teaching. It is about the systemic reasons they leave. Schools are places of oppression. It is in this light we should ask our questions. For example, we should ask about the increase in part-time contracts.
