What if it doesn't matter how aware teachers become of the world community's best output? It's impossible for them to always be the most informed person in a classroom where the students have access to...everything.

I think this really does seem to point at a future evolution of the classroom where the teacher is much more of a facilitator and guide and not always the one sharing their knowledge with the students. [Comment] [Permalink]

really quite optimistic

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
