It is part of where we might need to go, but does not eliminate the role of teachers. What it means for school is a different question.

Kim Flintoff's comment, July 6, 2013 8:54 PM
It is part of where we might need to go (Many of us have alreay departed for these shores) AND (not "but") does not eliminate the roles of teachers (it will mean teachers need to think quite differently about what it means to "teach"). What it means for schools is a different question (any more different than the usual demand to get out of the way of shifts in teaching practice and stop delaying change for so,long that it creates many more problems in the long run?)
