BetterLesson Receives $3.5M From The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation To Bring The Magic Of Great Teaching Online
As the influence of technology grows in education, many have started to predict the coming obsolescence of classroom fixtures like textbooks, chalkboards, standardized testing -- and even teachers. While technology will no doubt transform and replace some familiar pieces of education (for the better), the ideal outcome is not one in which teachers are replaced or marginalized, but one that empowers them and allows them to do their jobs more effectively. Great teachers, as anyone lucky enough to learn from one will attest, can leave lasting impressions and are essential to positive educational outcomes. After all, technology doesn't teach. Teachers do.
