  4. 4. Paradigm shifts in classroom management Great deal of student freedom Little to no student freedom Learner-centered:  teacher is facilitator/coach Teacher-centered:  teacher is center of attention and provider of information Learners work collaboratively with classmates and others around the world – the Global Classroom Learners work in isolation – classroom within 4 walls Active Learning Passive learning Research-driven Textbook-driven Focus:  what students Know, Can Do and Are Like after all the details are forgotten. Focus:  memorization of discrete facts
  5. 5. Paradigm shifts in classroom management Curriculum and instruction address student diversity Diversity in students is ignored. Performances, projects and multiple forms of media are used for learning and assessment Print is the primary vehicle of learning and assessment. High expectations – “If it isn’t good it isn’t done.”  We expect, and ensure, that all students succeed in learning at high levels.  Some may go higher – we get out of their way to let them do that. Low expectations Self, Peer and Other assessments.  Public audience, authentic assessments. Teacher is judge.  No one else sees student work. No “discipline problems” – students and teaches have mutually respectful relationship as co-learners; students are highly motivated. “ Discipline problems – educators do not trust students and vice versa.  No student motivation.
