André J. Spang und Torsten Larbig, die Gründer des #EDchatDE, haben sich entschlossen ausgewählte Themen, die in den über 3 Jahren des Bestehens des Twitterchats diskutiert wurden, in Buchform (siehe auch #EDchatDE – Das Buch) zu veröffentlichen. Die Ideen und best-practice-Beispiele der #EDchatDE-Community können so von noch mehr Lehrenden und Bildungsinteressierten gelesen und genutzt werden.

Hier möchte ich die von mit aufbereiteten Themen unter der LIzenz CC BY SA 4.0 weitergeben.

TASK to ASK

IMG_1221

Teaching attitudes, skills and knowledge – that is our task as a teacher. It sounds simple but the easier it sounds the more complicated it is. Today I read an article with the title „A teacher is much more than a teacher“, published in a German newspaper for doctors.
We, the teachers, are psychologists, social workers and coaches. We can multitask and act as team players. We foster our students, each of them. We demand high achievements from all our students. And, and, and, …
So, of cause, we can go on and on and we will find always new tasks for teachers.
But what is really interesting about this article is not the list of tasks, it is the positive attitude and the hope for a change in teaching culture. The article talks about a new type of teacher – innovative and student-orientated.

I am glad to find such a position in a German article. By the way, there has been a change in assessing the educational profession, I think. But this shift is taking place in the heads of teachers, it is missed in political decisions to create a new school and education structure.
Schools, teachers and the whole educational process is reappraised. And that is important. The structure of educational systems is based on the ideas developed at the end of the 18th century. But we teach students nowadays for the future. So, why do we have such difficulties in adapting educational systems to new challenges. In every kind of industry we find necessities and possibilities of quick changes. If you don’t want to lose contact to world class products, inventions or ideas then you have to adapt your business to new circumstances and conditions. And at school? There our future generation is taught.

This leads me back to my headline.
Teaching
Attitude
Skills
Knowledge

Basis is knowledge, no question. It is a must-have, without basic knowledge no further development is possible. Then during further education the focus should turn more on skills and attitudes. Of course, none of these 3 components can be taught autonomously. It is always a combination. However, all 3 components together create literacy. Literacy is not possible without knowledge or skills or attitude.
Today we have knowledge only one click away from us. The Internet is everywhere and you can search for what you want or what you need. But how to handle this huge amount of knowledge in the wide spaces of the Internet? You need skills, special skills. And nothing works in the right way if you have not the right attitude. You have to know how to act, knowledge leads to action. And action always depends on attitudes.

Consequently, school must teach these components and the best way to impart knowledge is asking. Ask your students questions, lots of questions. Challenge their thinking, let find them new ways, support their creativity. Only if they think they learn thinking. Ask them and they will learn (knowledge), they will do (skills) and they will broaden up their horizon (attitudes).
The task is to ask.
