Loose Change

Change is all around us and the modern teacher needs to be adaptable, innovative and willing to take a risk. Flipped classrooms, MOOCs, wearable technology, cloud computing, mobile, tablets, 4G, internet TVs, social learning, learning analytics, game based learning, augmented reality and e-books are all been used now or are just on the horizon. Change is all around us and the modern teacher needs to be adaptable, innovative and willing to take risks. The rate of technological change appears to be getting faster. Can our existing cultures allow us to take advantage of the potential of emerging technologies? Or do we need to change the way we change?

  40. How it is now...

  41. Education is receiving increasing pressure from changing global economic circumstances

    and complex societal needs.
  42. First, we as educators must establish new goals for learning.

    W e must move from emphasizing decontextualized reading and computational skills to developing independent thinkers and learners who engage in life-long learning.
  43. Learners bring their own needs and experiences to a learning

    situation. W e must incorporate those needs and experiences into learning activities to help students take ownership and responsibility for their own learning.
