"Students will be—and to some extent already are—living in a world of online interactions for which they currently have few learning contexts or models," Will Richardson (p. 26) tells us:

What is a teacher? A guide, not a guard. What is learning? A journey, not a destination. What is discovery? Questioning the answers. What is the process? Discovering ideas, not covering content. What is the goal? Open minds, not closed issues. What is the test? Being and becoming, not remembering and reviewing. What is school? Whatever we choose to make it.
