David Truss :: Pair-a-dimes for Your Thoughts » The Pro-D Flip - 4 views

  •  
    Professional Development for me used to be about going to sessions on specific days and then trying to 'bring back' what I've learned and incorporate it into my daily practice. Sometimes this was very challenging, I would get inundated with new information and find it very hard to apply what I learned into what I did on a day-to-day basis. Often my notes would be filed away, not to be seen again.

    We need to store knowledge in our outboard brains - not only in databases, intranets and on the Internet, but also in the experience and insights of our co-workers, colleagues and people networks. Knowing who to ask when confronting a challenge is absolutely vital in our interconnected world.

THE DIGITAL EDUCATION REVOLUTION: A Dramatic and Wide-reaching Change or The Same Old R... - 11 views

  • Ray & Coulter (2010) supports this stating that currently, teachers as a collective, do not see the potential for technologies to aid in the development of new knowledge, active engagement and linkage of knowledge to a real-world setting
  • There is no doubt that the Digital Education Revolution once completely rolled out will improve the digital resources available for each school and student nationwide, and that the intent of ensuring that all education professionals in Australia are skilled up to support this roll out is well-meaning.
  • but no where is it stated that teachers are required to be trained in the use of information communication technologies and being proficient in doing so.

  • our students are already miles ahead of the politics and the policies which are just coming into play.
  • We just don’t have the luxury of time for the groundswell of teachers to find their own way.
  • it promoted an infrastructure agenda instead of a learning agenda – which then filters down to the classroom interface resulting in old things in new ways.
  • think what the agenda has lacked (with the DER and more broadly with the ICT agenda) is a clear, research-driven compelling case for change

Research Summary 3: Teacher PD in ICT « hELPC! - 9 views

  •  
    That it is necessary to shift away from ICT-skills centred PD, towards reflective, pedagogically focused learning, is clear. Unless we, as teachers, can justify using ICT and make pedagogical changes to enhance student outcomes, then efforts to 'teach' ICT will be superficial. Embracing a Communities of Practice model for ICT PD incorporates the ubiquitous recommendations; that ICT PD should be collaborative; ongoing; focused on teacher needs;and facilitate critical discussion amongst colleagues.

    Is a lack of PD a barrier?
    Professional development is a barrier, although I think they can teach themselves much of what teachers need to be learning to be able to modernise their classrooms. The worst thing a teacher can say is: "who's going to teach me how to do that?" Teachers are teachers and should be able to teach themselves what they need to know. If they can't then they probably shouldn't be teaching. You want a teacher who can keep up. There are networks of other educators out there that can connect you with new skills.
    Professional development doesn't have to be something that is done to teachers - it can be just ongoing conversations they're having with other professionals that they're learning from every day.

Technologically Externalized Knowledge and Learning « Connectivism - 2 views

  •  
    Reformers have largely worked within, rather than on, the system of education. Working within the system has resulted in status-quo preservation, even when reformists felt they were being radical. Illich failed to account for how educational institutions are integrated into society. Freire spoke with a humanity and hope that was largely overlooked by a comfortable developed world incapable of seeing the structure and impact of its system. To create and nurture change, a message must not only be true for an era, but it must also resonate with the needs, passions, interests, realities, and hopes of the audience to whom the message is directed.
