I'm rather sick of "sage on stage" and "guide on the side" comparisons. The clear dichotomy chafes. While power in classrooms has shifted from the teacher at the centre, it's important to note that educators play a vital role not fully addressed by some of the current conversation. ... It's the basis on which teaching and education should be founded. But I think something more is needed, something that places some level of value or interpretation on content, knowledge, and concepts being explored.

An interesting article that addresses some issues of connectivism. I particular like his reference to role of the "individual formerly known as teacher" in education.
