The Deconstruction of the K-12 Teacher, by Michael Godsy at The Atlantic
There is a profound difference between a local expert teacher using the Internet and all its resources to supplement and improve his or her lessons, and a teacher facilitating the educational plans of massive organizations.
The article makes some interesting points, and it applies beyond K-12 also. The name of the article in the title bar is “When the Computer Takes Over for the Teacher,” which seems a better fit for the story. It’s also not just about computers, but a fundamental shift in the way information is created and shared.
