Description

Exploring the changing expectations of our students.

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Our philosophy may be outdated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

Consider this:

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

But why?

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
