Can you see what’s missing from this infographic on the 21st Century Teacher?

My co-author Casper Hulshof is quite clever. When he saw this infographic he asked himself what’s missing. Did you spot it?

Answer after the infographic:

Seemingly the teacher of the 21st century only doesn’t need to know one skill anymore: how to teach.

Oh, and as Inge Quets: a heart for children also seems to be missing.

  1. Actually the rather quotidian *how* to teach is covered in “Informed Pedagogy. More worrying is the absence of *what* to teach. Yet again subject knowledge is undervalued and marginalised despite it being essential for successful teaching.

  2. I would add “love working with children in large groups” as an essential component.

  3. Knowledge of the subject matter they must teach!

    Actually, I thought all parts of the infographic would demonstrate your skills as an accomplished and caring teacher, don’t they? If you are doing all these things, you are catering for all students, caring for them as individual learners, using your expert knowledge as a teacher and preparing children for the 21st century. Isn’t that what we teach for?
