We see that the traditional teacher training programs, as well as coursework, have failed to prepare teachers for the 21st century. We see that left with no choice, their teachers are dependent on on-the-job learning as well. We see that the absence of skills or gap between education and the demands of a teacher’s job profile continues to be a big obstacle facing a teacher’s career as well. We see that this is the major reason why teaching has become the last career choice as well. We see that from being inaccessible to inadequate as well as outdated, teacher education continues to be a popular topic of debate among academicians as well as curriculum experts. We see that if teachers want to get high-paying jobs, explore career opportunities as well as get international qualifications and certifications, upgrading their skills is the key. We see that the changes in the demand for skills from students continue to have profound implications for the competencies which teachers need to acquire to effectively teach these skills to their students as well. As we know we are not living in an era when teaching a fixed syllabus of content was at the center of education as well. Today, we see that the jobs are changing and so are the expectations from teachers as well. We see that teachers are expected to follow differentiated pedagogical practices as well. We know that unlike the curriculum cantered education approach, today, the focus is on the learner as well. We see that we can say that the kind of education needed as well as taught today requires teachers to constantly advance their professional knowledge and skills. We see that teachers need to stay updated with the advancements in different fields, skills in demand, future of work as well as potential careers for students. We see that they are required to be agents of innovation because innovation is critically important for generating new sources of growth through improved productivity as well as efficiency. They can also start using an App To Teach Online and make use of an Online Teaching App as well.
We see that to be most effective, learning environments should ensure that learning is social as well as often collaborative; be highly attuned to students’ motivations; and make learning central and encourage engagement; and be acutely sensitive to individual differences, as well as promote connections across activities as well as subjects, both in and out of school. We see that in a 21st Century teaching professional is expected to have passion, strive to improve, be ethical, value professionalism, aim for high standards, have enquiring nature, as well as a quest for learning, and be adaptive and resilient. We see that they need to have people management skills, as well as facilitative skills, technological skills, pedagogical skills, reflective skills as well as thinking dispositions, communication skills, innovation skills, and social and emotional intelligence. We see that Online learning was already on the rise even if we don’t take the pandemic effect into account and it is expected to popularise more among learners as well. We see that the pandemic has triggered behavioral change. We see that upskilling the teachers are of utmost importance to guide them on best practices when it comes to online teaching methods as well. We see that the issue of upskilling teachers is both complexes as well as multi-dimensional. We see that a central foundation for improving teaching is a deep understanding of advancements in learning as well as its prospects. We see that how children learn has transformed greatly over the past years, however, it has not had a profound impact on teacher practice as the majority of teachers continue to interpret new ideas through established beliefs as well. We see that we are living in an era of accelerating change, not only in technology development but also on the economic as well as social level. We see that in the past decade or two, teaching has changed significantly as well. We see that schools today may not be what some of us remember from our childhood as well. We see that changes have affected both the opportunities as well as the challenges of teaching, as well as the attitudes, knowledge, and skills needed to prepare for a teaching career. We see that recent technological advances have affected many areas of our lives, including the way we communicate, manage, learn as well as, of course, teach. We see that never before could learning be happening the way it is now such as everywhere, all the time, on any possible topic, supporting any possible learning style or preference as well. We see that teachers must plan lessons and tasks that students understand as well. At the same time, we see that teachers must also keep track of the major learning goals of the curriculum. We see as they gain experience in teaching, they will no doubt find additional strategies making classrooms increasingly diverse, with the inclusion of students with disabilities into classrooms with their peers as well. We know that an open-ended approach makes sure that instruction does not waste students’ time, as well as makes learning truly efficient, effective, as well as valuable. We see that teachers must embrace new opportunities to focus on learning by innovating as well as finding ways to focus on the needs of the students. We see that they should ensure the delivery of effective as well as quality learning, on the virtual platform since it presents many opportunities for them to revisit not only what students are learning; but, also, how students learn as well. We see that an educator must develop facilitation skills to guide their students on how to think, what to achieve, and how as well as converse, participate in the learning process as well as not just hammering home the steps to their students’ achieving content mastery at the same time.
