Watching the news makes me certain of at least two things. First, teaching is as important as ever.
We have more information at our finger tips than we’ve ever had in history.
We can communicate more easily than ever before.
What young people need is a guide–a signal in all the noise. The way students learn may have changed since the 20th century (or even five years ago), but what they need is someone to help facilitate learning and point them in the right direction to find answers.
After all, we need answers right now. That’s the second thing I’m certain of when I watch the news.
