For the immediate future, what we can best tell about the most effective teachers is that they will help students most by accentuating facilitation of the thinking, problem solving processes that help them learn how-to- learn.
So ends the 2-part article The Changing Roles of Teachers by Stronge, Grant, and Xu.
One of the first things you'll note about any classroom management strategy, whether it includes a focus on technology or not, is that it really is a good classroom management strategy no matter what's happening in that classroom.
So begins the instruction in the video Classroom Management in a Technology Infused Classroom by the Waukesha Tech Integration Team.
The article How Deeper Learning can Create a New Vision for Teaching lists the following competencies when defining Deeper Learning:
A watershed moment for me occurred at the annual ISTE conference several years ago when I heard Ian Jukes relate Moore's Law to what he described as the "exponential rate of change" in educational technology. I was able to let go of the concept that I had to keep up with all the new tools and devices.
The exponential rate of change also applies to the amount of information/content in the world. Clearly, the role of teacher as source of content is no longer applicable - if it ever was. But the role of teacher is still significant in the learning process. This quote from Jenny Pieratt's article in a recent edition of ASCD's Education Update sums it up well: For a new PBL adopter, this instruction may look pretty similar to what was done traditionally—perhaps a science lab, maybe a mini-lesson or short lecture, or even a video or webquest. It is my observation that with more experience designing and facilitating PBL we begin to see less traditional, "stand and deliver" approaches to instruction, but that shift is hard, and we need to give teachers the time and space to let go of the things they behold. As they become copilots to students' deeper learning, teachers will undoubtedly become more committed to nontraditional teaching practices, but we need to be sure they experience success first. Avoiding anarchy by upholding their important role in the process of learning is crucial!
