Education and the Role of the Educator in the Future
Jukes, Ian; McCain, Ted; Crockett, Lee
Phi Delta Kappan, v92 n4 p15-21 Dec 2010-Jan 2011
Exponential change is making our education system obsolete. New inventions will replace not only textbooks, but everything we currently think of as school. Teachers will need to rethink their roles as advances in teaching machines allow lessons to be customized to every child wherever that child might be. What is taught also will change because students will need to learn to collaborate and to communicate using multimedia skills.
