Battling Against Traditional Perceptions of Teaching and Learning. My goal with blended learning has always been to shift the focus from me to my students. I want to place them at the center of learning. I want them to ask questions, conduct research, engage in conversations, collaborate with peers, and make meaning for themselves. I believe this is the best way to prepare them for life. However, the truth is that being a student in a student-centered classroom is hard & some kids just don't want to work that hardClick To Tweet I teach 9th and 10th grade, so my students have been in school for 10 years before they walk through my classroom door.
They’ve been conditioned to think that “teaching” is a person standing at the front of the room explaining information. This perception of what a teacher should do and what I actually do are very different. My students’ role in the classroom has largely been to listen, take notes, and complete individual practice. How can I help my students to appreciate the skills they will need when they graduate? Manuel. Le Design Thinking pour les enseignants.
