Shifting Roles In Education

I had several discussions with teachers this week about the role of ClassLinks pages, 21st century learning, and critical thinking. This chart about shifting roles in education and establishing a "wirearchy" is very thought-provoking. You can learn more (and see the chart more clearly) at Harold Jarche's original blog post.

Please look at this (click on it for a sharper image) and think about our role as educators and learners and about our students filling those two roles, also.
