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outdated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 ac...
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
