As a teacher in a very student-centered program, I am often encouraged to step back from the students and let them discover their own path. A lot of teachers take this to mean that they are no longer a needed player in the classroom. I don’t see it this way. As you said, balance is the key. I definitely agree that the teacher is still an important part of the classroom. While we can let students discover things themselves by utilizing these amazing new technologies, we still need to remember that educators are crucial for guidance, reassurance and so much more. Never stop learning!
