Why do we expect all teachers to learn the same skills? When we can have differentiated career and interest options for children, why can’t there be enough types of career profiles and options created for teachers?
At present the main categories include regular, sports and special education teaching.
What if some teachers get training to be professional coaches, experiential professors, edTech gurus, analytics gurus and so on? What if a teacher could also become the school CTO or Chief Data Scientist?
What if we do not think of teachers as versions – teacher 1.0, teacher 2.0 and so on – as if we are thinking of a new software version to resolve the problem?
