The disappearing teacher
Traditional lectures or classroom have a certain ecology and culture. We are all too familiar with this culture through years (until today) of schooling. The ecology is often created by the architecture of the physical setting. There is the front and the back of the classroom, with the teacher in front and students at the back.

The physical settings are no longer the main design as technology has brought down the walls of the classroom/lecture room. As knowledge becomes more accessible to learners, the teacher is no longer the main source of information. They are no longer high up on the pedestal. The teacher is somehow disappearing in the classroom .. perhaps not so much as them physically disappearing .. but because the knowledge space and boundary has gotten bigger, much bigger.

However the presence of the teacher/moderator/facilitator is needed all the same as we have no idea of the teachability and learnability of the information found on the Internet.

Although the teacher is somewhat disappearing in the classroom, they re-appear in many forms in many different media and is almost available anytime, anywhere ... the teachers should start to realise this ... otherwise nothing much will change .. yeehaaa...
