Mally Johnsen

Mally Johnsen

My name is Mally Johnsen, a Norwegian art and design teacher with experience from K1-12, and freetime artschool for kids. The last 15 years I have worked with 16-19 years old students. For about two years I worked as a school department leader, but I missed both teaching and learningmoments with my students. Technology has since 2006 been an important part of my teaching, the national curriculum, and an integral part of 1:1 PC adoptions in our schools. I finished my Masters Degree ("ICT in Learning") at Høgskolen i Stord/Haugesund in 2013. OneNote and assessment and for learning was the theme for my degree. Beside the specific technology for art and design, such as Adobe Photoshop, OneNote is my favourite technology tool.

Beverley Cripps

Beverley Cripps

Beverley Cripps is a teacher in Learning for Life and Work, Music and 21st-Century Skills at Ashfield Girls' High School in Belfast (Northern Ireland): "I have always been passionate about learning, especially when it came to technology. I began teaching in 2006 and ever since then have remained passionate about sharing my expertise enthusiastically with my students, and anyone else willing to listen. One of the most inspiring aspects of teaching for me, is leading students to a world of discovery. Watching them having their own “lightbulb” moments is something that I find special, particularly when they share their excitement for your subject. It’s also great to meet pupils who you taught in the past and hear how they are living as successful contributors to society. I thoroughly believe in Lifelong Learning and welcome new challenges."

Steffi Svendsen

Steffi Svendsen

My name is Steffi Marita Miland Svendsen and I’m a twenty-five year old teacher from Norway. I graduated in 2012, so I am fairly new in the game with, lots to learn. In today's world, I do believe it is important to nurture and promote the benefits form the use of technology. I’m not only teaching to test, I teach my students about life and how to succeed on their own. As an overachiever myself, never being able to live up to my own expectations, I go to work every day telling my kids that they are good enough as long as they do their best. Nothing will ever change that. Technology makes it easy to implement all of the 21st century skills, and with OneNote as my secret weapon, I have more time to guide and foster my students. We work together as a team rather than me sitting on a pedestal with all the correct answers. And it brings a smile to my face when I open a Snapchat from one of my pupils proudly showing how they are spending their Sunday afternoon.

Irena Uluçay

Irena Uluçay is a teacher of ICT and programming at Secondary School of Information Technologies in Brno, Czech Republic. As J. A. Komenský said, education should be based on games that builds creativity and cooperation. Irena believes, that giving something from her heart to the lesson makes her students more active and focused on a topic. The information technologies have changed everything that includes our everyday routines, mainly education. Irena says, that a modern teacher is a coach of students working on themselves to achieve their highest possible level of knowledge. Coaching students should also include teamwork, which is an important thing to be able to manage to do big things simply.

I am Gazi Salahuddin Siddiquee, Assistant Professor, Agrani School and College, Dhaka, Bangladesh. I download pictures and animated video clips from internet. Then I make digital educational content using Microsoft PowerPoint. Because I use multimedia projector and laptop in my classroom, my classroom is more attractive to the students. They enjoy my class very much and participate in learning activities. This is 21st century, where we can find everything is transformed so our teaching style is also changed. As a 21st century teacher I try to make my classroom different from the traditional one. In my classroom there is a blackboard and a multimedia projector. I show lots of information, and pictures in my classes by projector for the students better understanding. Which also make my classroom more interesting to the students and also increase their interest in study.

I currently teach middle school drama and high school computer studies, in addition to my role as a technology integration support teacher for our faculty.

This has been enhanced through my involvement with the ISTE Arts Educator Network and Cohort21. My blog investigates a lot of my ideas around getting more girls interested in STEM, most specifically, computer science. Although I work at a girls school, we still need to find relevant and exciting ways to motivate them in these subjects.

Elisabeth Nagy

Elisabeth Nagy is an upper secondary teacher at Franska Skolan Secondary School in Stockholm, Sweden: "A mix of curiosity and perseverance inspires and motivates me. I refuse to be categorized as a Non Digital Native born in a decade when the phones had dial discs with cords and essays were written using old fashioned typewriters. As a middle-aged woman, I do not want to come to a standstill watching technology making progress leaving me behind. Together with my students, I explore tools and we aim at integrating them as a part of both teaching and learning. When we get AHA-moments, when technology inspires, helps and supports, they serve as energizers. “Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up interest wrinkles the soul.” (Douglas MacArthur). Exchanging experience is something I would like to further engage in."

Dimitris Primalis

Born and bred in a refugee neighbourhood in Athens, I have always had faith in the power of education to transform people’s life. Aristotle’s quote:” Education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity in adversity” has always been a source of inspiration reminding me of an educator’s importance and my role: to open windows on my learners’ life to the world and to boost their communication, collaboration and critical thinking skills. This path has been facilitated by technology that I have fully incorporated in my teaching. Dimitris Primalis is an EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teacher at Doukas – a Microsoft showcase school- in Athens, Greece.

Dimitrina Todorova is IT teacher in secondary school in Bulgaria. She teaches students how to work with technologies effectively and successfully: “The processes in the technological sphere and the dynamic work with the students provoke me to find a way for delivering electronic teaching materials and different methods for education. I use different platforms based on Office 365, WordPress, Moodle, Coppermine and others. I organized a lot of seminars for teachers during the year so that they can use these tools. The practice shows that the teachers start with uncertainty to use the technologies but after training they feel encouraged.”

I am Dženita and I come from the heart-shaped land Bosnia and Herzegovina, where I teach at Behaudin Selmanović Primary School. I have been a primary school teacher for 15 years. The world has changed. Growing up, learning, knowledge and education are no longer the same. So we have to change to. How can we expect our students to change, to be responsible, to seek for knowledge if we are not willing to change too? I have read somewhere that men who are not willing to change are not men, but monuments. So, every day I am trying to collaborate, to grow, to learn, to teach, to share with my students, colleagues and family in order not to be monuments, but the monumental changes.

Ser una profesora innovadora me implicó superar las prácticas pedagógicas tradicionales, llevando a la práctica nuevas propuestas a los problemas pedagógicos. Para plantear nuevas propuestas tuve que tener, además de conocimiento y experiencia acerca de mi disciplina (también otras disciplinas), una capacitación que me habilite para proponer cambios, cambios basados en dotar de herramientas al alumnado que le ayuden en el principio de “aprender a aprender”, así como conocer al grupo al que tendrá que acompañar en el proceso de aprendizaje. Partiendo de la premisa de que el alumno es el protagonista en el proceso educativo, somos los profesores los que ocupamos un papel primordial en la innovación educativa por ser quienes guiaremos el proceso de aprendizaje del alumno el cual se convertirá en un futuro profesional del país.

Είμαι δάσκαλος Πρωτοβάθμιας Εκπαίδευσης στην Ελλάδα. Το σχολείο μου ονομάζεται 8ο Δημ. Σχ. Νάουσας. Πριν ακριβώς από τρία χρόνια ξεκίνησα να ενσωματώσω την τεχνολογία στην τάξη με στόχο να κάνω την μάθηση ελκυστική, λειτουργική και κυρίως ενεργητική με την συμμετοχή των παιδιών. Άρχισα να δημιουργώ ηλεκτρονικά μαθήματα με εργαλεία συγγραφής, στοχεύοντας μέσω της διάδρασης να γίνει αποτελεσματικότερη η μάθηση. Οι μαθητές μου ενθουσιάστηκαν που μπορούσαν πλέον να έχουν την δυνατότητα να συμμετέχουν ενεργά σε αυτήν την δημιουργία. Επιπρόσθετα έχουν την δική τους εκπαιδευτική πλατφόρμα μέσω της οποίας μαθαίνουν εκτός τάξης. Το σημαντικότερο όλων είναι πως άρχισαν να αντιλαμβάνονται πως η μάθηση αποκτά αξία, όταν είναι συνεργατική.

Mabore Lekalakala is permanently employed as a qualified educator at Toronto Primary School, Limpopo Province, South Africa: "Motivation always starts with self; I cannot motivate if I’m not motivated. Self-motivation is what drives me, hence I see teaching as an open entity. I see myself and learners as people in a journey. I am motivated and motivate learners to continue with the journey until the destination is reached. They should know what they want to achieve in life no matter the paths they travel, places they pass, challenges met, etc. I see these as small journeys within the long journey i.e. journey of journeys. Self-motivation is the weapon I would like my students to carry throughout their lives.

Pernille Ripp is a 7th-grade teacher in Oregon, Wisconsin (USA): "I never wanted to be a teacher. After all, teaching were for those who thought they had something to offer others, some form of wisdom, and that was definitely not me. Yet, in my 20s, teaching called me loudly and I realized that while I might not have much wisdom yet, I wanted to help children redefine what it meant to be a student, to offer those I taught a different experience than the one I had had. Now 7 years into teaching and there is no place I would rather be. The wisdom my students impart me with, the passion with which we try to change the world, the little moments of sheer happiness is something I could never have imagined would fulfill my days this much. Teaching is truly the best life for me."

I am a teacher in a rural primary school in Northern Ireland. I was fortunate to be inspired by a wonderful English Literature teacher and want to be able to inspire that love of learning in my own pupils. I firmly believe in embedding the use of technology in teaching and learning to engage and motivate pupils to enable them to achieve their potential. The learning is central to all of this – the technology enables that learning to take place in many different forms.

Àngels Soriano treballa de docent de llengua i literatura a Martí Sorolla II, València Espanya; són molts els docents que defineixen “Educar” com l’opció d’oferir estratègies que ajuden als estudiantes a desenvolupar les seues competències. Podem trobar molts sinònims de l'educació: aprendre, emocionar, crear, participar, col•laborar, donar poder als estudiants, gaudir, explorar, aventurar-se, superar-ser, la corresponsabilitat ... tants que cadascú de nosaltres faria una tria diferents, com els nostres alumnes, cadascú és diferent. La meua dita personal és:”Compartir per créixer”, perquè crec que només comunicant les nostres experiències podem ajudar a altres docents a desenvolupar la idea que no sabia com dur a terme.

But the thing is that we don’t know how it is going to be, so, from my point of view, we have to give them the skills needed to face their future with full guarantees of success. It means responsibility for me. It means cooperation, self-regulation, communication, problem solving, advanced use of ICT… things that can’t be easily found in books. We are not the source of information anymore. We walk in the same path of our students looking for the best way to get it and use it."

That is the way we influence on cultural and spiritual development of our students, their humanity, empathy and integrity. Teachers need to encourage students to express their feelings, ideas, thoughts, to be more creative, fresh, to find their own ways, new solutions, to investigate. Results are always incredible and exciting: new literature work, new scientific work. Whatever, it is always specific and humane. And makes our world better.

I'm not yet done in learning; that for me this is Mathematics that all of my students can and should experience; that my students should engage in daily problem solving. For me, technology is an ally of student and it will become more exciting if technology and Mathematics merge for one common goal, to eliminate all the misconceptions of students about the subject. I will continue playing with numbers; taking and sharing advantage of technology; and unfolding the challenge of 21st-century skills for my students. As what Rushton Hurley said, “You can be a good teacher and never use technology, and technology won’t turn a bad teacher into a good one.

Azhar Youssef is an EFL teacher and PhD student from Egypt: "I am inspired by my students living in a community with so few facilities and difficult-to-change style of thinking. I try hard to mix both pedagogy and available technology to create an optimal learning environment where they can collaborate, innovate and construct new knowledge and alternatives to solve their society’s problems. Connecting to and sharing with colleagues is my pathway to lifelong learning, continuous professional development, and making a difference in others' lives. For my country, I dream to transform education to an enjoyable experience in which students learn for life, and become responsible for building their own future."

Warren is currently head of ICT at Rondebosch Boys’ Preparatory School in Cape Town, South Africa: "My job description includes a bit of everything from teaching Grade 1 – 7, staff training in ICT, looking after a network of just under 200 devices and making sure that there is always enough coffee in the staffroom…. Most of my inspiration comes from people from around the world who are doing fantastic things with very little. I think what you are doing is absolutely awe-inspiring and it has changed the lives of countless children. Thank you for what you are doing!! For me personally my greatest gift to learners is that they fulfill their full potential, become true 21st-century, lifelong learners and realize that every one of them has a voice that can be heard and that one person can make a difference!"

Tammy Brecht Dunbar, M.Ed., S.T.E.M., is a 5th grade teacher in Manteca (CA) Unified (USA) and a pre-service technology instructor at Teachers College of San Joaquin. Tammy believes the most important 21st Century tool in any classroom is the attitude of the teacher. “Teachers need to be comfortable tackling the challenges of using technology in front of their students and modeling how to overcome obstacles,” says Tammy. Tammy agrees with Bill Goodwyn, CEO of Discovery Education: “The motherboard and the memory chip will never replace the passion and inspiration of a real-life teacher. Technology doesn’t teach. Teachers teach.”

I have seen that collaborating globally to solve the problems of the world provides those experiences. We need to empower children to believe that they can make a difference.
