What Is The Role Of Teacher In Education | JBCN International
Teachers need to include 21st century skills – Critical thinking, Collaboration, Communication and Creativity in their pedagogy but simultaneously work with learners on 22nd century skills. The pace of change will increase at an exponential rate and much of what is projected for the 22nd century will happen in the next 20 years. They need to create an environment where Care, Community, Connect, and Culture are values that young learners will imbibe. In order to build these values, we need to build a strong partnership between home and school; all the stakeholders on the same page as we collectively prepare the young adult ready for a world that will be volatile, uncertain ambiguous and complex; the VUCA World.
How does a teacher keep the natural curiosity of a 4-year old child open throughout the schooling years? How does a teacher set in motion a free-thinker? How does a teacher get children to ask more questions and become their own seekers? How does a teacher keep pace with the knowledge and multiple perspectives the world of digital information gives at the stroke of a finger? How does a teacher stretch goals for their students to unlock their potential? How does a teacher create the dissonance within the child that sparks them to seek the answers for themselves? These are questions teachers need to ask themselves and teacher-training institutions must strive to give.
Since automation, technologically-enabled processes make it mandatory for teachers to also become experts in the use of software, artificial intelligence, computing skills, coding, almost needing to become software engineers in order to use these learning tools successfully. Teachers will require to reskill themselves and change the paradigm of what education is thought to be and become a learning companion with the student, putting aside the traditional teaching strategies that are roadblocks to discovery, setting free the natural life-force of seeking the new and reaching beyond one’s self.
