I found the following table on Leren & Innoveren [Learning & Innovation] a blog written by Martin Groenewegen van der Weijden, culinary teacher at the Albeda College in Rotterdam. I decided to share it with you (with his permission) as I find it interesting in that it attempts to bust the dichotomy between teacher-centred and student-centred by focusing on learning.
|‘traditional’ education||‘new learning|
|The teacher teaches her/his subject lecturing in a classical setting||The school offers interdisciplinary education and makes knowledge sources available for students||The teacher provides learners with a mental model and guides them in actively working with the learning materials|
|The teacher determines the learning goals and criteria||Students determine their own learning goals||Learning goals are determined together based upon practical and societal experiences|
|Identification, definition and memorisation, automatization||Metacognitive skills like information search, communication, collaboration||Learning and transfer are central: identification, definition and memorisation, automatization, metacognitive skills|
|Aimed at lower-order skills||Aimed at higher-order skills||Aimed at lower and higher order skills|
|Instructional approach determined by the teacher||Instructional approach primarily self-determined and self-organised by student||Instructional approach is a mix and strongly dependent on student’s level and context|
|Lesson is for average student||Lesson is tailored to individual||Lesson is adapted based on deviations downwards, average, and deviations upwards|
|Assessment based on traditional testing||Assessment based on peer and self-assessment||Traditional and new forms of assessment; variation between formative and summative|
|Student expects that the teacher knows and controls||Student has responsibility for self-direction and uses the teacher when necessary||Alternation between control and self-responsibility|
|The learner as passive consumer||The learner as active knowledge-seeker||The learner as motivated individual|
|Educational approaches aimed at a student sitting in the classroom||Educational approaches aimed at individual study and collaboration through ICT||Educational approaches aimed at classical setting, individual study and collaboration|
|Teacher teaches (sage on the stage)||Teacher coaches and facilitates (guide on the side)||Teacher designs and makes education|
