“But far from devaluing the role of the modern teacher, the new economy of information has freed teachers from their role as “font of knowledge” and allowed them to become chief analyzer, validity coach, research assistant, master differentiator, and creator of a shared learning experience.”

–Shawn McCusker, from “Teaching in the New (Abundant) Economy of Information” on KQED’s Mindshift blog
