Five Big Changes to the Future of Teacher Education

Five Big Changes to the Future of Teacher Education | Thinking, Learning, and Laughing | Scoop.it

Getty In the book Teaching 2030 by Barnett Berry and 12 classroom experts, the authors pinpoint specific skills educators will need to teach in the schools of tomorrow.


They say teachers must be prepared to find and adapt new technologies to engage the digital generation, as well as work across traditional subject areas using project learning.


They must be able to use data and evidence to inform their practice and know how to work in both virtual learning environments and brick-and-mortar schools. And they’ll need to collaborate with community-based organizations and work in schools that provide all kinds of other services for students and their families.


Along those lines, Berry has outlined five changes he believes need to be made to the future of teacher education.

The first point is interesting. Only 70% of the 170, 000 American education school graduates enter classrooms. I suspect the Canadian percentage might be similar.

It is so true, Gust! Teaching is not transmitting the knowledge, it is igniting the light for learning through collaboration, curation and teacher's passion for learning!

Teacher education programs need to ensure that pre-service teachers learn crucial skills for their future work as educators

Finding the best education technology tools is a time-consuming task. It may even be viewed as a chore (for some). Not with this fabulous list, though!

It looks very helpful and practical. We cannot be expert in all things digital.

Need to look into this... I love it when people take the strain off by finding sites for me.

Thanks for the great list of tools. Symbaloo itself is a great one for using with students. I try to use a small set at a time with children.

Des idées évidentes mais sans doute pas encore pour tout le monde !

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, May 6, 2014 12:55 PM

Relationships are at the centre of education. It is no longer teacher-centred or learner-centred. In a sense, teachers and students are learning alongside each other. I am not sure it will always be the teacher leading the way although they have to be willing to know when to let go and when to take charge. Content is still incredibly important in that unless it connects to the lives of teachers and students it is not practical and meaningful. Technology is rarely seamlessly integrated.

I wish that they had a bracket for engaged reading or interactive reading or critical reading. I do like this framework though.
