Teachers are used to hearing about new ideas in education -- changes in instruction, technology and curriculum that are going to fix what's broken.
So what's the takeaway for us, as teachers?
Well, the students have already changed. Learning trends are no longer about preparation, but about mitigation, about reducing the erosive effect of pairing connected students with disconnected learning environments. Coming to terms with that is important for both teachers and other change agents. We're chasing, not leading.
