Many of us have known for some time that the face of teaching is changing. We are no longer the all knowing, fountain of knowledge. And apparently at this year’s SXSWedu Conference and Festival in Austin, Texas the idea of us being facilitators of personalised learning was popular. About time I hear from the back.
So what were the key foci:
- Teach students to find the answers.
- Ignite a spark.
- Put context before content.
- Let learning be iffy.
- Bring students in as curriculum designers.
