Teachers as Learners, not Teachers

Will Richardson is one of my favorite thought leaders in the education world. He has a new book out, which I will have to purchase and read. (“From Master Teacher to Master Learner.”)

Quick quote from his new book, as previewed on his blog:

Teachers must move their own practice in transformative ways toward a focus on learning, not knowing. That’s not to say that the need for knowing isn’t still important. (Though there’s a strong argument that there’s way too much curriculum to know.) But it does suggest that to best help our students become powerful learners in the modern world, they need teachers who are master learners as well.
