A Beautiful Poster Featuring Basic Digital Skills Every Teacher Should Have via @Mekh9

A Beautiful Poster Featuring Basic Digital Skills Every Teacher Should Have via @Mekh9 | EdTech - How to | Scoop.it

Via Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa)
Richard Whiteside's insight:

These and many other tools are available. But if you are a teacher, what do you think? Is it really necessary to have all these skills? There is so much content readily available online and if you can organise to prepare materials in teams, or have access to a PLN on or offline, then you can share the load. 

 

Some teachers and content creators have specific skills and their expertise can be used or accessed by anyone. Personally, I think it's good for teachers to be aware of the digital possibilities for their teaching context, but it is generally unrealistic for anyone to expect all teachers to become skilled in so many different areas. 

 

Is it not better to pick fewer areas more relevant to you and focus on them? Be a master of a few areas useful to you, not a jack of all trades feeling stressed that you are master of none.

Looks more like a walk down an exhibit hall of vendors than skill/talent tied to teaching & learning.
Rod Murray's comment, February 13, 2016 7:21 PM
If every teacher had this skill set, that would dramatically change teaching and learning. The "vendors" are, contrary to your suggestion, mostly free technologies that can and do change teaching and learning.

Why choose Google Drive's Presentation app over Power Point?  No reason, unless you are collaborating on a presentation.  Since more students are working on projects electronically and from different locations, this could be a great tool.

Getty and other stock photo companies are now offering millions of photos free to use. Alongside the free to use creative commons images, this means there's tonnes of material out there for everyone to use, without fearing copyright infringement!

Flipped learning is more than just having students do homework during the school day. It’s more than just putting the onus on students to teach themselves. In fact, it’s neither of those things. Don’t be fooled by simple explanations of flipped classrooms that simplify a highly complex undertaking.
