About The Evolution of Learning
The way the world was and the way the world is has changed dramatically over the past 100 years or so. Learners are particularly attuned to this and they experience the ‘disconnect’ between a changed world and the one being presented to them in the classroom.To prepare learners for the new world of work, the dynamic in the classroom needs to be more reflective of the real world out there. Interestingly, it is not only about bringing technological change into the classroom but also about embracing social shift – the way we think about and relate to the world and each other.
Just as good parenting cannot be effectively accomplished via a screen, neither can the goals of providing a relevant and holistic education be achieved without teachers, although that role is needing a considerable amount of reinvention, for one simple reason: knowledge acquisition is no longer the primary goal of education.
This presentation will help educators to understand:
- What is driving change in education
- Why education needs to change
- Why the smart classroom needs a smart teacher
- The teacher as facilitator not transmitter
- Why computer literacy is not the same as basic literacy
- New key performance indicators for teachers
A presentation for educators.
Also covered in the book co-authored by Nikki Bush & Arthur Goldstuck, called Tech-Savvy Parenting (Bookstorm, 2014).
You were absolutely spot on with your Evolution of Learning presentation at our Western Cape SAPA Conference. It was so relevant to where our educators are at and was put together in such an accessible way. Thank you.
