The Future of the Teaching Profession from the Perspective of Students with a Major in Education
Céspedes, Jensy Campos; Gutiérrez, Walter Solano
Journal of New Approaches in Educational Research, v6 n2 p87-92 Jul 2017
The article offers the results obtained in a study where, through the application of a survey and the development of a discussion forum with students from education majors, information about their perceptions with regard to four axes related to the future of the teaching profession was obtained, as follows: the teacher profile, the student characteristics, the participation of the family and the community in the education process and the curricular changes. From the study, it can be observed that the family and the community are perceived as the organizations with greater trends towards change as a consequence of the technological development and the globalization processes of societies, whilst the teacher profile, the concept of student, of school and curricula, tend to remain within the status quo. The perceptions shown by the future teachers who participated in the study demand relevant changes in the training processes of the education professionals.
