Pedagogy - 'Disillusioned' teachers bored by chalk and talk

Traditional methods do not suit modern classrooms, expert says

 

Professor Fullan identifies them as the root of the problem. But he stresses that the new methods of teaching he describes take teachers beyond being “mere facilitators” to becoming “partners” who recognise the “importance of proactively learning alongside students”.

 

“Through such partnering, teachers not only become learners themselves, but also begin to see learning through the eyes of their students,” he writes.

 

“This ‘visibility’ is essential if teachers are to continuously challenge students to reach for the next step.”

 

The report acknowledges that many of the teaching strategies it describes have been “advocated for at least a century by the likes of Dewey, Piaget, Montessori and Vygotsky”.

 

But it says that today’s conditions means they are now being widely embraced: “

 

Through the combination of the ‘push’ of traditional schooling that fails to keep students or teachers engaged, and the ‘pull’ of new pedagogies unleashed through digital access, the transformation of education systems on a broad scale becomes not only possible, but inevitable.”

This article supports the need to change from a traditional style of teaching to one which is in partnership with the student.

Very interesting article which gives educators much thoughts about the methods they chose to "deliver" their classroom content.

This new website provides a tool that will allow students compare constitutions from various countries and find similarities and differences. You will also find tags, over 300 of them, so you may choose to search by a specific tag such as "right to privacy" (found in 156 constitutions) or "right to bear arms" (found in 5 constitutions).

This site may be a great resource for history and social studies as courses in government.
