5 Things Students Expect From Their Teachers

5 Things Students Expect From Their Teachers | Understanding Physics | Scoop.it

Is there "a difference between a 'student' and a 'learner,' between a 'teacher' and an 'educator.'
Teachers want their students to be responsible and curious. They expect their students to follow class rules and do their homework. But what about the reverse? What do students want from their teachers?"

Some wonderful questions that I look forward to answering.

I consider points two and three absolutely necessary! Points one, four and five are more difficult to maintain for six hours per day each day of the school year for all students.

Gary Faust's insight:

Very interesting. Product development is possible, but the human brain has capabilities that a computer sill not surpass in that time. I doubt we understand the human brain sufficiently at this time to speculate about a computer's comparitive ability. Good ideas for science fiction writers, though.

Technology changes at such a rapid rate that it is tough to look ahead and envision where it will be in five years let alone fifty years...but that is what this infographic does. This timeline focuses on digital and mobile as well as big data, and references are provided for the information. 
Check it out and see if you agree or disagree.
