Algo del que estoy convencida desde hace mucho tiempo ...

Tips for Teachers as Web Tutors or Moderators

The teacher's role is crucial when planning a learning process. In an eTwinning project, it's the partner teachers' shared responsibility to schedule the learning process, choose and provide appropriate tools, set the goals and plan the procedure. After that the focus should be on the learners.
  • Teacher is a guide on the path students are walking. She/he let's the students walk independently, encourages and supports, helps in crisis, but keeps distance.
  • At the beginning the teachers' responsibility is bigger, but towards the end, the students should take responsibility of their own learning and of the process/project.
  • When the students face problems, they should have a teacher to turn to for help. On the other hand, the students should be encouraged to first try to solve the problems themselves.
  • It's important that the students help and support each other. Teaching your peers is an essential part of collaborative learning.
  • One of the most common mistakes is that the emoderator/teacher talks too much and imposes her/his own ideas very strongly.
  • In learning, the process is much more important than the end product.
  • Mistakes are an essential part of a learning process and often a very effective way to learn. They're nothing to be afraid of.
  • When given the goal and support and appropriate tools, students usually come up with amazingly creative solutions.
  • Project learning is always as much learning to learn as learning the actual subject matter.
