  5. 5. Five stories of possible futures for teaching profession in 2025
  6. 6. Crosscutting issues − Highlighting changes in teacher profession − Importance of ITT and recognition as CPD − Opening of teacher networks towards other stakeholders − Ownership, control of data and commercialisation − Privacy, security, safety, identity Scenarios not mutually exclusive!
  7. 7. 1. European Education Network (eNet): Expansion of eTwinning model Pro’s − School exchange becomes part of initial TT and recognition of CPD − Expansion towards more stakeholders − Safe, secure environment for teachers, students and parents to interact − Public funding (EU) for independence and sustainability Con’s − Centralised governance and structure − Less favorable in terms of openness, flexibility and interoperabilty with other networks and spheres of life.
  8. 8. 2. MyNetwork: User-centred social networking approach Pro’s − Decentralisation and federation across networks − Flexible, serving a diverse needs and profiles − Wide variety and choice - Personalised approach Con’s − Market fragmentation and individual approaches − Favours technology proficient users – others may stay behind − Difficult to engage parents and other stakeholders − Formal recognition as CPD unclear
  9. 9. 3. Intelligent Agents: Technology-focused approach Pro’s − Almost like or a music recommender for teaching − Avatar does the repetitive activities – reduction of workload − Dealing with information overload and complexity − Open Educational Resources Con’s − Technology dependence: reliability, dependability, automated suggestions and decision-making − Trust, security, privacy, − Private market solutions only
  10. 10. New roles as a teacher Scenario 4: Diversified Teaching Careers
  11. 11. 4. Diversified Teacher Careers: Autonomous learning & teachers as mentors Pro’s − Autonomous learners through personalisation and taking responsibility − Different teaching professions: teaching in class, teaching virtually, student monitoring Con’s − Highly dependent on use of digital technologies for organisation and administration of learning − Significant investment in teacher training
  12. 12. S ENARIO 5: OFFL C INE NETWORKING By 2025, collaborative technology has failed in many aspects. Teachers have spent the last five years substantial amounts of time learning new networking applications, but it was not always clear if and how these technologies improved their teaching. An alternative group of teachers has emerged that almost exclusively teach offline. This new education scheme offers rotating teachers working for different schools within the area. They get to rotate schools within the city and now dedicate more time discussing things with other teachers faceto-face. Once a month, various teachers' collaboration networking events are organised. In these events, teachers get an opportunity to do collaborative projects with other teachers. S tudents are also involved when these events take place locally. Interacting and collaborating with students from other schools has increased student motivation for learning new things.
  13. 13. 5. Technology meltdown: Off-line peer learning Pro’s − The face-to-face time is valued − Collaboration is still embedded in teaching, however in different ways Con’s − Rotating teaching profession can have drawbacks
