I teach, therefore you learn... or do you?

  1. I teach, therefore you learn... or do you? The changing expectations of our pupils
  2. We no longer live the way we used to
  3. •We teach the way we used to •We teach the way we were taught
  4. Our philosophy may be outdated
  5. We may be stuck in our old ways
  6. The old may feel safe and reliable
  7. Perhaps the new offers a better alternative
  8. Consider this:
  9. Charles Dickens wrote like this
  10. But our pupils read Charles dickens like this
  11. Yet we expect our pupils to produce work like this
  12. But not like this
  13. It may be time to reconsider the way we teach
  14. But why?
  15. Our pupils are not that different from us
  16. But they experience the world differently
  17. Think about it...
  18. Our generation watched TV: •Limited information •Structured schedules
  19. Their generation use computers: •Limitless information •24/7 access
  20. Our pupils share the same interests we had: •Friendship •Socialising
  21. But they use different tools
  22. The means of communication have changed
  23. This is how they communicate:
  24. Communication may hold the key
  25. We need to start listening
  26. We need to teach using the right tools
  27. We need to teach life skills
  28. We need to stop resisting change
  29. We risk being left behind
  30. If we are to meet our students expectations
  31. If we are to engage our pupils
  32. If we are to remain relevant
  33. If we want them to learn from us
  34. We may need to learn from them
