As connected learning communities continue to evolve, so too do teacher roles, responsibilities, capabilities, and expectations. 

Effective learning has always depended on effective teachers.  In the age of technology-empowered education, the teacher remains the critical link to learning.  The integration of technology does however create a more sophisticated and robust role for teachers in the classroom.

Teachers in a technology-rich environment continue to provide information and academic facts.  In addition, on an unprecedented scale, teachers help students understand the learning process.  They guide students as they learn to find information, determine whether and when it is appropriate, and understand how to apply it to answer questions and develop solutions to complex problems.

Technology opens new doors to assessing, evaluating, and monitoring student learning, empowering teachers to help students capitalize on academic strengths and improve academic weaknesses.
