Educators need more change, more stimulus, more push. This isn't to make them uncomfortable, though that isn't a bad thing.
As the Internet of things speeds up and information and learning is accessible 24/7, so teachers must speed up the rate at which they adapt learning in classrooms. Rehashing lesson plans, worksheets, and pedagogy year after year leads to complacency, and the last thing we need is complacency. Educators need speed if they are going to keep up with students who far outpace them accessing information for personal learning.
At any time a student can start a blog and have a following in days. Podcasts can be started and attract listeners. Collaboration is stupid easy to students who share their work like it is breath. Educators, all of us, need to get to this point.
I can imagine that students think their teachers are stupid. Kids dream up ways to work together on various things using thousands of apps and the Internet at their disposal. We need speed to catch up with them to know and understand their world, the world that moves at the speed of instant creativity.
If educators want students to be engaged in learning then we are going to have to speedily change how we learn and exist in a tech driven world.
