Sharing: A Responsibility of the Modern Educator

Sharing: A Responsibility of the Modern Educator | Digital Learning for Young Learners | Scoop.it
The educator becomes a connected educator and through sharing, is an active participant and contributor to the connected educator movement.

Being a connected educator means connecting with other teachers to exchange ideas, improve your teaching practice, and in turn, make a change in education. It is only through being connected that we can collaborate and help to foster learning for the 21st century and beyond. (Being a Connected Educator)

The gap between what is and what could be in education is larger than it ever has  been.  I believe this is largely due to technology and the ability to establish global connections because of social media. Educators are more connected and more aware about education trends than any time in the history of public education.

Imagine how education could be transformed if all educators use their own personal, often passion-driven voices. The bottom line is that if any individual educator believes there are flaws in the education, that it can be done better, then s/he has the responsibility to say something. I reaching the point that I am starting to believe it is a moral imperative for educators to share what they know to be true with other educators; and with administrators, students’ families, community members, politicians . . . the larger global society.

I don't think this is a new responsibility, but it is important.

J'aime ce post parce qu'effectivement, tout prof devient de facto une source pour les autres en matière de connaissance. Pourquoi pas le partager ?

Durriyyah Kemp's curator insight, April 6, 2015 9:50 AM

You'd be hard-pressed to find a better way to pay it forward than through shared learning... education.

The challenge is offering opportunities for meaningful engagement of skilled learners.  Not everyone comfortably jumps through other people's hoops.  Higher Education is charged with ways of enabling skilled learners to set up their own hoops.

Très juste par rapport à la réalité du terrain : il y a les étudiants et les apprenants (et un continuum entre les deux).

Building Early Literacy Skills With iPads - ITEACH WITH IPADS

Building Early Literacy Skills With iPads - ITEACH WITH IPADS | Digital Learning for Young Learners | Scoop.it
I am on spring break this week. It has been such a luxury to linger over coffee and the newspaper in the mornings. That has been about all of the luxury I’ve been able to enjoy because even though I’m on spring break from my job, I am not on spring break from doctoral classes. I have been immersed in scholarly articles on early literacy. So, while this is all fresh on my mind, I am going to share a few work samples from some of our recent literacy activities on iPads.
