The 21st Century Teacher Trainer…

The 21st Century Teacher Trainer… | The 21st century classroom | Scoop.it

 

"…or even Teacher Educator!
It seems you can’t throw a rock into the blogosphere these days without hitting a post or article on the 21st Century “something-or-other”.

Teaching is no different, teacher training is no different…so, and because I obviously have my “teacher educator” hat on these days, here’s my two cents on “trainers” of the present and future...."

 

Another great post by Tony Gurr. Having read his earlier posts on Imagineering the 21st Century Teacher; The Prequel and The Sequel, I have yet to find any writing that better describes the Role of Teacher in a Connected World.

Supporting Innovative Teachers as Knowledge Generators

Supporting Innovative Teachers as Knowledge Generators | The 21st century classroom | Scoop.it

We need to start envisioning our teachers as knowledge generators and creative professionals whom we trust to innovate and implement unorthodox ideas that might transform teaching and learning. The time has come to reward innovation among our best and most creative teachers. They should be given the time and resources to reflect on their practice, experiment with new ideas, and implement strategies to more effectively engage learners.

Hi Anne-Mart! Thanks for the suggestion! I mistakenly opened the link from your suggestion and posted it to my site directly from the link instead of rescooping off yours! Sorry!

Productivity Tools for Educators

Productivity Tools for Educators | The 21st century classroom | Scoop.it

" I am a firm believer in the purposeful use of technology to improve productivity and accessibility to critical information. .....In addition to be good stewards of our resources, I believe that an important responsibility of a 21st educator is the purposeful modeling of instructional technology. That being said, neither teachers or administrators have time for contrived implementation of tech tools – it should serve a purpose and lead to more effective practice. Over the course of my school administrative experiences I have gradually developed systems for managing tasks and duties that minimize the necessity of paper and provide nearly universal access to the notes, paperwork and documentation needed to effectively carry out my responsibilities. It is a work in progress, but I have decided to share the web 2.0 tools I use on a day-to-day basis to improve my efficiency and model technology usage for our teaching staff. While these descriptions have a decidedly administrative slant, each tool is easily adapted for classroom use."

Build a powerful PLN - your learning network

Build a powerful PLN - your learning network | The 21st century classroom | Scoop.it

If you are a professional, you should have a PLN. Your PLN (personal or professional learning network) is the community of people you interact with and learn from on a regular basis. They may be people you meet on a daily basis, but more often than not in the digital age, many PLNs are comprised of people we interact with on social networking sites. In my opinion, the most powerful PLN building tool is Twitter. For me, Twitter is an incredibly powerful yet simple tool that enables me to connect with, and learn from, specialists, experts and enthusiasts in my chosen field of expertise. Put simply, I follow teachers, learning professionals and education experts from all around the world - over 1400 at my last count. I learn something new everyday, usually as a result of dialogue on Twitter, or clicking on a link someone has shared in my timeline.

Do Teachers Need to Relearn How to Learn?

Do Teachers Need to Relearn How to Learn? | The 21st century classroom | Scoop.it

I suspect that the main reason many teachers don’t transfer their knowledge and actively seek answers to their questions about tech is that they simply aren’t very interested in learning it. The key to David Warlick’s statement is that people can leverage the internet to learn anything they want to learn. But let’s put that aside for now and assume for the sake of argument that teachers need to learn how to use tech whether they want to or not. Why do they often profess helplessness and state that they can’t learn it without PD?
