You're right. Teachers are the easy target. Your last sentence makes it. When teachers, school admins, and parents would be one team again it might be a solution. In my case it was even too much of it, for my mom teachers were (sort of) gods. :-(
jantamaya, Your mom sounds like mine. Teachers could do no wrong! My mother told our adult neighbors if they ever saw me or my brothers up to no good they had permission to "correct us". Oh the nightmares of adults with switches chasing me!:-)
But how can we change the society? Our powerful media could bring weekly good news and good examples. They won't do it; however, first they would ask how much money they would be able to make with such 'good' news... :-|
I hope that you're right about the last sentence. If you're right, our media isn't doing a good job. We are informed only about the bad examples instead showing us the opposite - the good examples. Why isn't the media information balanced? ????
Yes---the media focuses on only the bad; never the good. Every day I get positive and respectful feedback from students (and when applicable) parents and community members.
I don't understand your claim that using current technology in the classroom precludes teaching. T
Technology is integrated into lesson now as it was in the past.
Do you have any idea how white boards or computers are used in classroom today?
My wife is a retired teacher. There is so much emphasis on using the technology, that less time is available for teaching and explaining the basics of grammar, math and other subjects. Also, technology changes all the time. Schools are alwys lagging.
Technology is integrated into lessons. This is what you seem to fail to grasp.
I strongly suggest you do some research on how technologies are actually used in the contemporary classroom before judging them as obstacles to instruction.
Why teachers don't begin with the school management and address there the problem? This is the first and easiest step for teachers because they don't have much influence on parents. The principal and the management must stand behind teachers, I think
I know technology is integrated into the lesson--therein lies the problem. We are so concern with meshing the two, that we are not teaching the lesson. As a reporter I sat in school board meetings where constant changes made learning the lower rung.
