I adore this. 

Why is Australia's national curriculum moving more towards a one-size-fits-all model when we know many of these skills are not even used in adulthood? Where is the differentiation?

 

We don't learn like this as adults and yet we ask our students to 'grin and bear it.' As an adult, I will learn when I need to and when I have the motivation. Right now, I am motivated to learn Excel formulae because I have an assignment due in a couple of weeks!

Why new technologies could never replace great teaching

Why new technologies could never replace great teaching | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it
Technology in education gets plenty of hype, but let's not forget the importance of teaching and learning, says Pamela Wright

 

So where do I stand as an educator, as a leader in education? The centre point of my passion is a philosophy that I instil into my staff, into the school and into every school I support. It is the child – first and foremost.

 

Teachers don't simply teach concepts and skills. Any new technology can do that.

 

Good teachers inspire our young people to be lifelong learners, creating a culture of independent enquiry with their enthusiasm and passion. I know this because I see it every day. Good teachers have the skills to know exactly how to get the best out of each and every young person in their care.
