wishes and regrets by McMorr
If we want to think of ourselves as Twenty-first Century educators, we must remove some of the old paradigms that affect this view of learning. One of the most prevalent preconceptions is the definition of TEACHER.
What is a 21st Century Teacher?
Who is a 21st Century Teacher?
Where does a 21st Century Teacher function?
Do all 21st Century Teachers have an official class?
Do all 21st Century Teachers have an official school?
When does a 21st Century Teacher teach?
Why does a 21st Century Teacher teach?
While there may be some new words for teacher, educator comes to mind, I am wondering how the lines between informal education and formal education through the advances of web applications and other technologies are blurring the definitions of teachers or educators?
It seems to me that this blurring of the learning place is an opportunity for all of us to change our 20th Century preconceptions of teacher/educator into the 21st Century paradigms. Are you doing that? Do you respect all educators no matter their place of being? OR Are you stuck in the 20th Century?
