A global look at pedagogies for 21st century skills

A global look at pedagogies for 21st century skills | teaching | Scoop.it

Disconnects between policy mandates/supports and desired practice were found in most of the schools and all of the systems in our sample. For example, teachers were often being asked to innovate while being incented and judged solely by measures of the facts that students had acquired through traditional means, or given ICT to use without related curricular materials and models for ways to use it powerfully and effectively in subject matter learning. It was rare that teachers experienced standards, curriculum, professional development, assessments, and incentives that all aligned to support the development of students’ 21st century skills.

Many clear points within the article...Education is messy.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 11, 2013 12:18 PM

It is not the desired practice which is disconnected, but more an issue of did policy makers actually go into classrooms and have conversations with teachers.

MET Project : Measures of Effective Teaching

MET Project : Measures of Effective Teaching | teaching | Scoop.it

We know that great teaching matters more than anything else within a school. More than class size. More than school funding.

 

More than technology.

Many say "you know it when you see it." But what does great teaching actually look like?

 

Two-thirds of American teachers feel that current evaluations don't accurately capture the full picture of what they do in the classroom. They want information that they can trust from measures that are fair and reliable.

 

Because without information that leads to meaningful feedback, improving as a teacher can be like learning to play the piano by yourself or learning to play basketball without a coach: It's very tough to get better and to become great without knowing what you're doing right.

 

The Measures of Effective Teaching (MET) project was designed to help teachers and school systems close the gap between their expectations for effective teaching and what is actually happening in classrooms.

 

The project brought together 3,000 teacher volunteers in six different school districts with dozens of education experts and researchers.

 

The MET project's goal was to build and test measures of effective teaching to find out how evaluation methods could best be used to tell teachers more about the skills that make them most effective and to help districts identify and develop great teaching.
