Learning to Teach for a Knowledge Society

Carlos Marcelo

Abstract


Modern societies are engulfed in a complicated process of transformation. This unplanned transformation is affecting the way we are organized, how we work, how we relate to each other, and how we learn. These changes are visible in the institutions charged with educating new citizens. How are these changes influencing the role of teachers? How do we begin to rethink teachers' work in these new circumstances? How should the new generation of teachers be developed? What knowledges and attitudes must we instill in today's teachers so that they may take advantage of the new opportunities offered by the information society? In this article we review the literature of teacher learning and teacher knowledge from the point of view of new challenges presented by the knowledge society.
