I teach, therefore you learn... or do you? The changing expectations of our pupils
We no longer live the way we used to
•We teach the way we used to •We teach the way we were taught
Our philosophy may be outdated
We may be stuck in our old ways
The old may feel safe and reliable
Perhaps the new offers a better alternative
Charles Dickens wrote like this
But our pupils read Charles dickens like this
Yet we expect our pupils to produce work like this
But not like this
It may be time to reconsider the way we teach
Our pupils are not that different from us
But they experience the world differently
Think about it...
Our generation watched TV: •Limited information •Structured schedules
Their generation use computers: •Limitless information •24/7 access
Our pupils share the same interests we had: •Friendship •Socialising
But they use different tools
The means of communication have changed
This is how they communicate:
Communication may hold the key
We need to start listening
We need to teach using the right tools
We need to teach life skills
We need to stop resisting change
We risk being left behind
If we are to meet our students expectations
If we are to engage our pupils
If we are to remain relevant
If we want them to learn from us
We may need to learn from them
