  24. 24. Let’s read that quote again:“In the early 1990s, the teachers really are themonopoly of knowledge and they are the onesthat comes to class to deliver that knowledge sothat students can acquire them. But today,knowledge is no more a monopoly among theteachers because students can get knowledgefrom a myriad of sources. Hence the role of theteacher today is facilitation. You know, thatmeans facilitate students where they could getthe right knowledge, how they could synthesizethings, how they could discern the informationthat they get.”-Professor Lee Sing Kong, Director, SingaporeNational Institute of Education.
