How can you stay ahead of the trends and stay relevant in this new world of technology-enhanced education?

  • 8. (1) Learning that involves information transfer will be replaced by technology.
  • 9. So we see emergence of sites that provide free lessons and lectures.
  • 10. (2) Any repetitive assessment or learning task that can be replaced by a computer will be.
  • 11. Thus follows the emergence of services that provide homework and practice experiences.
  • 12. (3) Any computerized course that is cheaper and results in equal or better learning outcomes for students will be delivered that way.
  • 13. And so … the emergence of free courses, certificates, and degrees.
  • 14. So where does that leave you?
  • 15. So where does that leave you? Wait and see?
  • 16. (not recommended)
  • 17. [reflection] What creates a really great learning experience?
  • 18. Paradigm shift: You are now a learning coach.
  • 19. Listening Communication Questioning Challenging Accountability Encouraging Showing new perspectives
  • 20. Add more “Social Spice” Be the person students want to be accountable to.
  • 21. A good coach also monitors the stats and provides appropriate interventions.
  • 22. Even if the data is provided by the ProTeach 2000.
  • 23. In general, find ways to increase student engagement. But be careful … engagement for the students, not you!
  • 24. [case in point] Classroom mapping research from Vilma Mesa at the University of Michigan. Warning: These will haunt you.
  • 25. If you are brave enough to let someone else make a detailed observation of the interactions in your classroom, what would they find?
  • 26. [reflection] How do you stop being the most engaged person in your classroom? How can you get the students more engaged?
  • 27. Show relevance to current events Ask Interesting Questions Let/make students collaborate Foster thought-provoking conversations Be supportive and encouraging (get out of the way)
  • 28. And yes … Some of this too. New skills!
  • 29. Guess who’s taking all these free MOOC courses? Turns out it is people just like you.
  • 30. “Anyone that can be replaced by a computer should be.” - Arthur C. Clarke
  • 31. Here’s a bit of unsolicited advice…
  • 32. Stop wasting time doing things that a computer (or robot) can do better.
  • 33. Be a human instead.
