There have been some conversations in Enabling e-Learning recently that have brought up the topic of teaching practices and what is required in the 21st century. There are, understandably a range of opinions on this.

Over the next few weeks it might be interesting to have a discussion focusing on a New Zealand e-Learning pedagogy. These will focus on:

  1. What does a New Zealand student in 2014 look like?

  2. What does a New Zealand teacher in 2014 and beyond need to look like?

  3. Can we develop an e-Learning pedagogy or a list of teaching practices that are specific to teaching in New Zealand’s multi-cultural, ever-changing society in 2014 and beyond?

 


In this first discussion the focus is on the student.

Many of us know what the research/experts say, so… From your own observations:

  • What does a New Zealand student in 2014 look like?

  • What do they want from school?

  • What do they actually need from school?

If you can, include examples/stories from your experiences.


Here’s a short video clip to start your thinking:

 

  • Are New Zealand students the same? Different? In what ways?

There are also a range of resources about pedagogy and future-focused learning available on the Enabling e-Learning website.

    Hi guys. Great discussion topic and something I'm fascinated and passionate about. I am teaching year 7-8 students in a 1-1 digital class. Collaboration, independent learning and shared learning are areas we are trying to build and improve on. I look forward to following the discussion
