Heather Bryson EDTC 100 C Philosophy of Education Lifelong learning is a commitment to being open to the world and new experiences Teachers should always be learning and growing Teachers should strive to learn as much as possible to better serve their students A teacher s education does not end at graduation They must continue to study and explore new methods and theories They should also be able to reevaluate and rework old methods and theories to find new uses A teacher should attend conferences and workshops and skillbuilding activities to gain insights and experience new perspectives from others in similar situations as themselves Discussions with fellow teachers and professionals allow them to expand and share with others They can take their knowledge back into the classroom and share the experiences and knowledge with their students allowing them grow Teachers are an integral part of a child s development They have a responsibility to their students to provide a quality education A teacher should facilitate a supportive and stable environment conducive to learning They should take into account the diverse needs of the students They need to be attentive to the many aspects that affect a student s ability to learn A teacher needs to be able to change roles as a situation demands A teacher should build up their students and not demean them They must be supportive and help the student to be confident in their abilities They are mentors and counselors but they must have authority and command respect Students should be able to trust their teacher and feel safe and secure in the classroom An effective teacher is a re ective practitioner They can objectively review and revise their methods and practices as needed They have the ability to re ect on their work Heather Bryson EDTC 100 C and acknowledge assets and aws A teacher should be exible and able change as necessary to accommodate differences in students They may find that what works for one student or group of students does not work for another From day to day and year to year a teacher and their practices need to evolve to better suit the needs of the students They can take clues from students assignments and tests as well as from discussion to determine the level of student understanding They should compare the information with previous material learned and with peers and set standards to ascertain the students basis of knowledge and growth Technology is important in today s fastpaced world Technology skills are necessary in today s competitive job market Therefore it is necessary for teachers to use technology and introduce students to the limitless possibilities technology has to offer Teachers must be careful to use caution They must use age and skilllevel appropriate technology At times too much emphasis can be placed on technology It should be used as a supplement only There is a time and place for technology such as a PowerPoint presentation to outline or introduce a lecture or the internet for real world applications and further study on a new lesson It can also facilitate independent study but it can not substitute for teaching Problems arise when teachers are laX in their preparation with students Students must understand what is expected of them and what is and is not appropriate when dealing things like the internet Teachers must be clear in their expectations and carefully monitor their students Lack of resources and funding can also cause problems While a teacher may be highly trained and capable of integrating technology they can not do so if they do not have access to tools and resources
