The changing role of teachers in the 21st century.




I. Introduction

It is no secret that the world is changing rapidly. Every day, new technologies and new ways of doing things are being developed and introduced to the masses. This is especially true in the field of education. Teachers today have to contend with a whole host of new challenges that their predecessors never had to face.


One of the biggest challenges facing teachers today is keeping up with today’s rapidly changing role as a good teacher. Previously, teachers were primarily responsible for imparting knowledge to their students. In the 21st century, however, the role of a teacher includes more: they must also aid their students in developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills, digital wellbeing, etc.


The 21st century has brought out many changes and challenges for teachers especially. But on the fairer side, it has also opened several new opportunities for them. With the right mindset and approach, teachers can embrace these challenges and use them to improve their pedagogic practices.
