Title: In Service Teacher Development Using Lct: First Step In Lifelong Learning
Author: Valente J.A.
Abstract: What should the teacher of the future be? Among other things this professional should be able to practice and promote the development of lifelong learning skills. The question is how to prepare teachers to be able to reach this goal. The process of preparing teachers to use LCT in their pedagogical activities, carried out in two main courses in Brazil, is an attempt to move in this direction. These are on-line courses on the Internet, designed to prcpare teachers respectively from special education, and from basic education, to be able to use LCT in their classroom activities. These courses use the virtual being together approach to Distance Education, promoting the development of the reflective teacher, emphasizing reflection-in-action and reflection-onaction and working with contextualized and decontextualized knowledge. Since the course emphasizes the development of reflective teachers and provides a means for them to understand LCT activities as windows into peoples' thinking processes, teachers are acquiring ways to interact with their students, discussing the concepts involved in their activities as well as how knowledge is constructed. These are the first steps in mastering important ideas about how to become lifelong learners and how to create learning situations to help their students to develop lifelong learning mindsets. © 2003 by International Federation for Information Processing.
