Professional Development for Teachers! Am I joking? Do our teachers really require further development? Well often we will here “Our teachers” knows the subject in and out. They have been into these for many years. They are experienced. They do not need any kind of training, coaching and handholding.
Friends are we been fair to the teachers. Can we have a profession where training is absolutely not required? Are our teachers or would be teachers well equipped to handle the continual socio economic and technological changes in our society.
Today’s kids are a different kind of species. They are exposed to Television, Internet, Mobile and mobile applications, gaming, internet and social media and what not. The youngest of the kid’s brain hold information load which is mind blowing. As a parent or a teacher, we, really do not know what a child in the classroom is aware of! They surprise us every moment. Their curiosity and eagerness to fast track learning is outstanding.
