21st Century Teacher 저자: Mind Map: 21st Century Teacher

1. Professional Identity

1.1. Teacher Identity

1.1.1. The teacher can act as a "guide on the side" which is a more non-traditional style of teching. This involves understanding the needs of the student, giving many options for understanding, and more student lead projects

1.1.2. Teachers can also act as a 'sage on the stage" which would be a traditional method of teaching. These teachers teach the curriculum and to the test, they lecture in front of their students, have a quiet classroom and do nor deviate from the lesson plan

1.2. Educational Philosophy

1.2.1. "The idea that the focus of education should be the universal truths conveyed through the classic and profound thoughts and works that have lasted through the centuries and have recurred in each generation." (Martin, D & Loomis, K, 2006, pg 46) Perennialism is the educational philosophy that everyone should be taught from classic literature , the teacher is a guide on the side but the students learning is based on a classic body of knowledge

1.2.2. The essentialist believes there are certain basic or essential knowledge, skills, and understandings students should master Essentialism is an educational philosophy based on memorizing basic knowledge and skills to be a productive member of a workplace. They teach to the test, and a more back to the basics approach.

1.2.3. students determine what they need to study, guided, of course, by the teacher. Teachers following the philosophy of Existentialism would base their teaching on the needs of the student. The student investigates themselves and make their own meaning of the world

1.2.4. Social reconstructionists believe that world crises require the use of education to facilitate the development of a new social order, one that is truly democratic in nature. Schools are seen as agents of the reformation of society rather than as transmitters of knowledge Social Reconstructivism is focused on social justice and to educate students to become democratic citizens of the world

1.2.5. educational theory marked by emphasis on the individual child, informality of classroom procedure, and encouragement of self-expression The philosophy of Progressivism gives students the freedom to create their own development. Focused on project based learning, teachers provide experiences to students

1.3. Theoretical Approaches to Learning

1.3.1. Humanism is the belief that humans themselves are intrinsic learners and will learn best when they can make personal connections with the subject at hand. Maslows Hierarchy: When a person has their basic needs met they we become self-actualized (Theories of Educational Psychology Lecture)

1.3.2. Behaviorism is the use of different types of reinforcement to encourage certain behaviors. Positive reinforcement can be used in the classroom through treats, gold stars, stickers etc. Negative reinforcement such as writing names on the whiteboard or no recess can also be used to discourage negative behavior

1.3.3. Understanding Information Processing can also be important to consider when approaching learning. Students can encode information in their short term memory but also retrieve it from their long term memory. Sensory stimulation can also be used in learning

1.3.4. Constructivism is when students learn by constructing their own personal meaning in the subject

1.4. Self Reflection

1.4.1. "You don't know what you don't know strive for intellectual humility" (Sensoy, O & DiAngelo, R, 2012, pg 167) Have an open mind, make connections, don't dismiss information, pose questions

1.4.2. "Everyone has opinions, opinions are not the same as informed knowledge" (Sonsoy, O & DiAngelo, R. 2012, pg 168) when we have difficulty understanding a concept, the easiest thing is to give a personal response, use small groups to deepen understanding

1.4.3. "Let go of anecdotal evidence and examine patterns" (Sensoy, O & DiAngelo, R. 2012, pg 170) teach social justice issues, let the framework of the course expand your own personal knowledge

1.4.4. "Use your reactions as entry points for gaining deeper self-knowledge" (Sensoy, O & Di Angelo, R. 2012, pg 171) questions require research and knowledge than bold statements, if you accept information what may be ethically required

1.4.5. "Recognize how your social positionality informs your reactions to your instructor and those whose works you study in the course" (Sensoy, O & DiAngelo, R. 2012, pg 173) What blind spots do you have, are their topics that you do not understand as well due to your positions and background

1.4.6. Grades and Effort assignments must demonstrate comprehension, grades are not assigned for how hard the student works but on the outcome of that work, more focused on the what rather than the why

3.1. Curriculum

3.1.1. In the Ministerial Order the premier Jim Prentice said that, " students will study subjects learn reading, writing and mathematics"(J. Prentice, 2013) This reflects a more back to the basic approach to education as the premier is more focused on making sure that the students know the basic skills that they need to.
