The dramatic changes in global economies over the past five years have been matched with the transformation in technology and these are all impacting on education and the workplace.
School leaders play a key role in developing and supporting teaching and learning in their schools, and in managing processes, systems, staff, and students. It is a complex and challenging job, yet most principals agree that it is enjoyable and rewarding. All educators agree that in today's fast moving world it is essential to keep on upgrading one's skills to be prepared to handle the ever increasing learning needs of their students and teaching staff.
Here are the choices of imbibing Skill amongst learners:
Coding is the future
In the world of today, it is not just teaching others but also learning along with them. There is absolutely no room of unnecessary pool of information which has no relevance to the demands of the children. Once you realize how much technology can aid your other curricula, you see that it’s worth the time and energy. Coding definitely teaches students tech skills, but that’s only the beginning. Coding helps in developing skills from a very early age and it will serve them well for many years to come. When you do coding, it really is like a whole new language, which definitely encourages processing skills. So as they say, with coding, the control is completely in your hands.
Be a Good Teacher-Facilitator
An educational facilitator is one who opens the door to learning rather than simply providing information to students in a rote format. The trend in educational facilitators as teachers operates on the premise that students learn better when they are guided and allowed to discover knowledge on their own rather than constantly being spoon fed facts and information. Having a balance of traditional teaching as well as educational facilitators at all levels of education -- elementary, secondary and university -- gives students a well-rounded educational experience.
Teaching has been the most important part of education. Currently with the access to technology, students don’t come to school only to learn, instead they are here to experience, experiment and evolve as individuals. The next decade is unpredictable for most of us, as to what future jobs offer, how businesses work or even how the education system functions. The aim of educators should be in equipping students with wings by giving them a platform and letting them choose the direction to fly.
The future is about access, anywhere learning and collaboration, both locally and globally. Technology can often be a barrier to teaching and learning. The cloud will go a long way to remove this barrier. As cloud computing will remove the number of things that can go wrong like loss of exam data etc., all we will need is a fast robust internet connection. No software installed servers or local file storage. Teachers can use the cloud to set, collect and grade online.
