Changing Our Job Descriptions

Because digital learning is changing the way students engage with information, learning, and the world, it also is evolutionizing the traditional role of educator and schools. Teachers are now anyone who has something to offer students--anyone who has something to learn. Online public schools are providing an inexpensive, educational option to home school or private school, and Edupreneurs like Sal Kahn are cashing in on the opportunities the education/Internet fusion has made available. Ark predicts that within the next five years, more than ten percent of students will be receiving their education via online schools.
