Ludgero Rego's insight:

It's a question of mutual trust and acceptance of what is appropriate and what is not - without the shadow of a legal challenge looming... what happened to the "I'm sorry Mrs Oliveira, your little boy pricked himself with a needle today but he's alright now" - "that's ok, i'm sure he'll be fine" type of discourse?

J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, January 12, 2014 11:13 AM

Mike Kalin blogs somewhat simplisticly on this controversial topic. He rings into a chorus of profound delimmas. For example, are teacher roles changing or going the way of the dinosaurs?

He simplifies teacher role to: facilitator, curator, and role model. For futher discussion I wonder about Khan Academy. They may have millions of viewers, but what kind of learning community can develop without caring teachers? Education that is just personalized channels of information can be a blight on society, de-humanizing the very essence of schooling.

Technology must be combined with the development of better teacher-student relationships in order to help schools innovate. Kalin concludes: "In the Khan Academy era, content expertise can be outsourced to machines, but moral leadership cannot."
