Technology is replacing the teacher, or so some would have us believe. As a technology director at a school, it is easy to get caught up in the ed-tech hype and to take it to the “inevitable” conclusion where teachers are no longer necessary and the need for physical school buildings has gone away. This is not only wrong. It is quite opposite of the truth. I love a quote by one of my teachers, who said, “As long as boys like girls, there will be brick-and-mortar schools.” I think that oversimplifies it a bit, but it reminds us that human relationships are important to the education process. We need to stop scaring our teachers because they are more important than ever
