Move Over Teachers: The Students Are in Control
We asked 35 top education experts the same simple question:

“What are the most effective uses of technology in online and mobile education?”

W

hat emerged from their responses was a
surprise. Taken individually, the essays provide
a rich variety of perspectives demonstrating the
use of mobile and online technology in and out
of the classroom. Each essay provides insights on
how educators can get the most out of the content,
tools, and networks available to them. However,
if you take a step back and view the essays in the
eBook as a whole, an important and surprising
theme emerges. Simply put, the experts are telling
us that the entire educational system is at a tipping
point. Within a few years, professors, teachers,
and campuses won’t be at the center of learning.
Instead, rapid advances in mobile and online tools,
social networks, and content are putting students in
that position.

What exactly does this shift from instructorcentric to student-centric learning mean? Basically,
everything we know about education changes. As
technology continues to fuel this shift, educators
will need to embrace their new role as coaches, and
learners will have to step up and take responsibility
for driving their learning. But learners won’t be
alone: On their journey, they’ll be accompanied by
people who know far more and far less. They’ll be
teachers and students, they’ll receive and provide
feedback, they’ll get help and give help, and they’ll
learn that learning is all about a dynamic collection
of global and interpersonal relationships.
