The 21st Century Teacher

Will Richardson says “If you’re not feeling a little bit uncomfortable about being a teacher or being in education right now, then you’re not paying attention.”  because the technologies we have available to us are forcing us to think about how we "do schools" and how we approach teaching and learning.  The internet is bringing us both huge challenges and huge opportunities.  Students need teachers to help them learn to collaborate and be part of learning networks and to embrace change.  The video below gives some other views about the changing role of teachers in connecting with 21st century learners.
