The Teacher As Visionary
Teachers all over the country are reinventing themselves and creating new visions for what learning looks like for their students. This is the core of the professional craft of education. We educators are looking for new ways to engage our students in active cognitive processes so through our lessons they experience what they learn. Education is about much more than receiving a lesson: It is social, interactive, and -- when done right -- requires us to create new knowledge.
Thanks to some of the new technology platforms available, teachers are able to connect and work with their students like never before. In order to find success, they need solid infrastructure and support to learn how to use those platforms and roll them out effectively with their learners.
I had the pleasure of sharing my experience and vision for education today and tomorrow on The Teacher As podcast with Melissa Milner. Give a listen!
