Profile of a modern teacher
From decades, schools and classrooms work on a systematic structure more or less the same way. But do these structures apply to children in today’s generation? If children are evolving with time and environment, why are the educators and the system stagnant?
Educators are constantly required to evaluate, review and renew strategies of teaching. They need to align with cultural, technological and informative philosophy of the era the children live in. Teaching is a dynamic concept that keeps growing and evolving from time to time and hence, educators are forever leaners.
Educational needs are not the same today as it was twenty years ago. The modern educator is a facilitator, a coordinator and a guide; the modern educator is not a teacher. Teaching should no longer be a business of giving information. Information is already available out there. The task is to present it to the students effectively in a way that it makes them want to learn by themselves.
