What It Means To Teach

What It Means To Teach | Communication design | Scoop.it

Teaching means…

…to help another person understand.

…to help another person understand why something is worth understanding.

…to help another person responsibly use what they know.

…to artfully connect students and content in authentic contexts.

…to cause change.

…to cognitively agitate.

…that relationships with children are the bedrock for everything else.

…to be able to see individual faces, needs, opportunities, and affections where others see a classroom of students.

…that you should always know the difference between what you taught and what they learned.

…to model curiosity.

…that students will likely never forget you (or that one thing you said, the time you lost your temper, how you made them feel, etc.)

…to know what it actually means to “understand.”

…to create a need for students to reorganize and repack their intellectual baggage.

…to self-critique your own biases, blind spots, and other “broken perceptions”

…to make dozens of crucial decisions on the fly not per day or class but per minute.

…that you’re going to be needed every second of every day in some important way.

…to adjust the timing, general ‘form’, and complexity of a given content so that it seems ‘just in time, just enough, and just for me’ for each student.

…to help students play with complex ideas in pursuit of self-knowledge and personal change.

…to be able to create an awesome lesson plan and unit–and to know when and why to ditch that plan and unit.

…to know the difference between teaching content and teaching thought.

…that you need to know your content well enough to teach any concept, skill, or standard within it 20+ different ways.

…that you’re going to work closely with people that will think differently than you, and learning to bridge those gaps with diplomacy could make or break your happiness

…to help students transfer understanding of academic content to authentic circumstances.

…to accept certain failure.

…to be a lifelong learner yourself.

…to disrupt social imbalances, inequities, and knowledge and skill gaps

…to confront your own weaknesses (technology, pedagogy, content, collaboration, organization, communication, etc.)

…to really, truly change the world (for the better or the worse).

…that you’re going to need a lot of help from everyone.

…to operate under unclear terms for success.

…to explain, model, and connect.

…to change, change, change.

…that in terms of sheer mathematical probability, you’re not going to be teaching for more than five years (if you’ve already passed that, congratulations!)

…that your ‘comfort zone’ no longer matters.

…your teaching program probably didn’t prepare you well (e.g., your ability to empathize and engage and design are more important than anything else you learned in said program).

…to practice humility.

It would be nice if every and each teacher added one own thought to the list.  

I add: 

...to pass my enthusiasm to them in a pleasant and inspiring way and to understand and respect their own one...

Because of ICT there are sooooo many NEW possibilities to use with the computers and the internet. Just imagine that a company owner should employ people for each special application, NO WAY! (S)He wouldn’t have enough money to afford it!!! So it is necessary that the 21st Century worker/employee would be an all-rounder! An all-rounder WHO comes straight out of school and from whom the business/workforce could profit directly!!!

For 1st time, MIT's free online classes can lead to degree

For 1st time, MIT's free online classes can lead to degree | Communication design | Scoop.it
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has offered free online courses for the last four years with one major downside: They didn't count toward a degree. That's about to change.
In a pilot project announced Wednesday, students will be able to take a semester of free online courses in one of MIT's graduate programs and then, if they pay a "modest fee" of about $1,500 and pass an exam, they will earn a MicroMaster's credential, the school said.
The new credential represents half of the university's one-year master's degree program in supply chain management. As part of the pilot project, students who perform well in the online half can take an exam to apply for the second semester on campus. Those who get in would pay $33,000, about half the cost of the yearlong program.
"Anyone who wants to be here now has a shot to be here," MIT President L. Rafael Reif said. "They have a chance to prove in advance that they can do the work."

Why We Can No Longer Rely Only On Schools And Companies For Professional And Personal Development

Why We Can No Longer Rely Only On Schools And Companies For Professional And Personal Development | Communication design | Scoop.it

There once was a time where everything you needed to know for your career was taught to you by the educational institution you attended and the company you worked for. You would go get your four year bachelor’s degree in whatever topic and that information would stay with you for a little while, then you would periodically take some additional classes offered through your company.


Today by the time you graduate with a four year college degree most of the information you will learn will be outdated and perhaps obsolete.


The world has changed and it’s up to us as individuals (and as companies) to make sure that we can change too. Organizations must enable employees by deploying the right technologies to connect people and by supporting employees and allowing them learn outside of the company. Individuals must get rid of all excuses and understand that they can learn anything they want anytime they want to learn it.

Certain of his calling as an artist, he dropped out of school at the age of 16 and became the youngest member of New York’s historic Photo League in 1949.
