6 Tips for the Successful Online Teacher | THE Journal

6 Tips for the Successful Online Teacher | THE Journal | K12Education | Scoop.it

By Richard Rose

 

"In recent intake interviews with new students of education at West Texas A&M University, I found that teaching online is the new Holy Grail for many young K-12 educators. They dream about how wonderful it would be to spend part of their day working from home in their bunny slippers and to conduct meaningful interactions with students via Skype while preparing dinner. To this group, teaching online means never having to be anywhere at any particular time, never having to wear uncomfortable "professional clothes," and never being asked a question without having time to research the answer.

 

"After two decades in online teaching in both the corporate world and higher education, I regret to report that the grass is not necessarily greener on the other side of the network connection. While online teaching offers many rewards for instructors, it takes a special set of skills and attitudes to excel at it. And these are emphatically not the same skills and attitudes that make an exceptional classroom teacher. Here's the mindset it takes to be a successful online teacher:"

Love that this is happening in schools more and more.  Truly a natural progression and seeing districts accept it instead of fight it is refreshing.

I am going to do this for my two boys, 7 and 10 yrs, for my sanity and theirs for their morning routine!  It's a win win... they get to use their iTouch in the morning and I won't be pulling my hair out tell them the same things I tell them every morning! :)

The Genius Of Google Fiber

The Genius Of Google Fiber | K12Education | Scoop.it
Google is giving away hugely expensive fiber-based Internet access, but not because it's a charity. Google knows that the more people that spend time online, the more likely they will spend money with Google.

It is not just having the technology; it is knowing how to use the technology effectively!

Cathleen Nardi's curator insight, May 23, 2013 5:58 PM

The ability to adapt and the ability to encourage one's students to do the same.

Jane Sowter-Maranion's curator insight, May 23, 2013 7:12 PM

Being a 21st Century educator is creating a learning environment that is social, collaborative and project based. Teachers, nor anyone else for that matter, will ever be able to keep up with all new technologies. The trick is to focus on digital technologies that facilitate student collaboration.
