Owning the Teaching–and the Learning

You have a billion potential teachers. You have an opportunity to learn in ways that you or I could not even have dreamed of when we were in school. And you have an opportunity to shepherd your students into a much more complex, much messier, and much more profound world of learning in ways that will help prepare them more powerfully for the world they face.

Many of our kids are already doing this without us. Many of them have much more of a clue of what it means to learn using these tools than we do. —Will RichardsonOwning the Teaching–and the Learning  (weglogg-ed)
