A Quotation from Random Thoughts:
The role of the teacher today needs to change – they are no longer the ‘wise guardians of knowledge’. Information today is easily accessible through a myriad of technological devices. Teachers today have to be guides, showing children where the information they want can be found, but more importantly how they can navigate their way through the wealth of information out there to ensure relevance and accuracy. It is time to rethink the role of the teacher in the classroom and this will inevitably make us re-think the role of learning.
So now we shall be the Guardians of “relevance and accuracy” as distinct from “knowledge.”
EDUCATION, n. That which discloses to the wise and disguises from the foolish their lack of understanding.
