Creating a 21st Century School for Teachers and Learners
Yong Zhao has rightly said, “Respect of students’ interests, freedom to explore, faith in students’ ability to achieve something meaningful (rather than underestimation of their ability).” These are some of the most effective terms that can help a teacher and student to create a 21st century school.
Here are some important key points that help you in creating a 21st century school for teachers and learners.
Try to think like an Entrepreneur:
Yong Zhao has advocated an entrepreneurial mindset to become a highly inspiring educator. With this mindset, instructors will be able to design an effective curriculum for students and teachers.
Moreover, it will be easy for them to develop an efficient teacher’s profile and this process will help with their recruitment as well. It will also assist in purchasing resources, marketing, and creating product quality.
Think Big Dream Big:
By designing a Big Dream in your mind and to follow up that dream will also help you to create a space that provides quality learning for students. First Dream then turns it into a vision and a mission to thrive a fascinating culture in your school.
Inspiring passionate teachers:
Try to recruit teachers who have already worked in other areas than teaching so that they can give more innovative ideas. They should be risk-takers and go-getters to bring variety in your school.
Flexible learning Arenas can be created with flexible teachers:
When I watched a movie named Hichki, I find it very interesting that how a teacher can make her students more interactive, enthusiastic, creative and curious to learn new things just by trying new and innovative ideas of teaching. A teacher must be very flexible and creative to make her students more curious and interactive.
To conclude, I want to add that to create a 21st century school for learners and teacher the best way is to simplify the most complex things in your school. It will maintain a positive aura to create a blissful learning environment in your school.
