Interessante, mesmo se não concordo com a quase redução do papel do professor a “coordenador” em certas fases do processo.
The new professionalization of teaching, in sum, may require renewed investment in teaching, in teachers, and in teacher preparation. Digital technologies are not likely to replace adults as important guides and role models in students’ development. What digital tools could do, if well designed, well chosen, and well deployed, is make teachers more effective in both traditional and new roles, especially in their new role as coordinator.
To accomplish this, we can no longer afford to evaluate teachers on a single metric: the performance of their students on standardized tests. Teachers contribute to the education and development of children in numerous ways, and our educational institutions must devise systems that acknowledge and reward the full range of professional services that teachers perform. In particular, systems for evaluating teacher performance should take into account teachers’ shift from the center of the pedagogical exercise to the coordinator of a range of learning and mentoring resources. This will require that teachers receive consistent support as they learn how to shift from the focus of a student’s academic life to someone who helps students coordinate the digital experiences they need to grow intellectually, socially, and culturally.
