My Philosophy & Ethics in Education
by Andrew Tyler
What is the role of Education?
Classrooms that implement Web 2.0 tools like Edublogs andSkype in the Classroom will be able to provide their students with exposure to other cultures.
Who/How Should We Educate?
When it comes to the question of who should be educated, I think the simple answer is, everyone. This question for me brings up a less simple question, however, and that is how do we educate everyone? The ideal would be for education to be effective across the board, but there are so many different types of learners, it is unrealistic to assume that teaching students with one form of teaching is the most effective approach.
Flipped classrooms and implementing Universal Design for Learners guidelines can provide students with confidence and enthusiasm about learning.
What Role Does the Teacher Play?
A Makerspace program is a great way to provide connections with the local community by pulling in local experts in crafts, skills, or hobbies. Implementing a Technology Student Help Desk will also provide a collaboration between students and their peers, but also the teachers and other staff of the school as well.
