Hate to poke the fear monster or sound like a Luddite, But having just finished my first year and with lots of time ahead, I find I’m getting lost in my own head a little. All year long I was loathe to use Khan Academy. I dunno, sort of a protective “but these are MY students and I don’t need a guy named Khan to teach them for me” type attitude. But I am forced to wonder and worry, with things like Khan Academy, YouTube, Siri, MasteryConnect and various other forms of personalized distance learning; will we as classroom educators soon be resigned to the same scrap heap as chimney sweepers and horse drawn carriages? Especially given the ever relentless drive for financial efficiency that capitalism demands? A very sad and distressing thought for me; I feel like I found my place in the world. Paranoid?
