Educators implement teaching methods that have been shown to be effective in promoting successful learning for all. Further, they use and create learning environments in which students are engaged, challenged, feel safe to take risks and are supported to learn. Thirdly, the educators want to build students’ beliefs in their own capabilities to learn successfully and their understandings of the relationship between effort and success. For the fourth, the educators provide regular and timely feedback to students in forms that make it clear what actions individuals can take to make further learning progress.
The educators know their students’ needs. Further, they want to reserve themselves a multitude of learning techniques whatever the topic demands and however the learning content is distributed. They don’t want to be shackled by predetermined EdTech-tools and systems for empowering optimal learning experience. The educators understand that the techniques, content distribution needs and degree of interaction may vary a lot – the same content may have several purposes and target groups, constant tailoring is needed.
