Who owns the learning?

"...None of this means that teachers are less important..what it really means is that teachers are more important than ever because this is a change in the culture, a change in the ecology of learning. This is not about adding technology. It's a fundamental shift in relationships, in roles and the feeling of empowerment that students have when they create a legacy"
