#edChatRI - Q1 - A gatekeeper is something or someone keeping you from a goal. In education, high stakes testing (ACT, SAT) is often a gatekeeper. Teachers are also gatekeepers because they give grades. Many times money and societal status is a gatekeeper as well.

A1 Gatekeepers are high level powers that be that tend to be making the decisions of where education is going #edChatRI

@LindaEdwardsi Glad you could make it... Who are these gatekeepers pulling the levers of education and making these decisions? #edchatri

A1. A gatekkeeper is one who leads you to the knowledge and helps you find the way, but doesn't give it away directly and makes you find it! Teachers, Principals, Supt. #edchatri

A1 - To me a gate keeper is a person who keeps you safe, guides you in the right direction and provides mentor ship. #edChatRI

Question 2 - As teachers/educators, we are gatekeepers of knowledge for our students. How can we change our roles in the classroom from gatekeeper to guide? #edChatRI

A1 Gatekeepers control what is happening. In education, politics and policies are gatekeepers. Politics brought about high stakes testing and the politicians hold the purse strings. #edChatRI

@Shapiro_WTHS I like the positive spin on this. Often times people think of gatekeepers as things keeping people from their goals. I like how you looked at this as someone who leads you to those goals. #edchatri

#edChatRI - Q2 - I think the first step is by instilling a #growthmindset in our students and changing over to mastery based grading. We need to let our students know that they are ultimately in charge of their own learning and that they hold their own keys to knowledge.

A2 I don’t really look at educators as gatekeeper of knowledge more like facilitator, guide, model a person who shares knowledge and leadership #edChatRI

Elizabeth Hajder @BethHajder

A2 We have to be open to suggestions and show our students that we are still learning as well. Teachers don’t have all the answers and we should not pretend to. #edChatRI
