Reflections on Digital Aristotle

In my most recent video I reflect on C.G.P. Grey's video Digital Aristotle: Thoughts on the Future of Education.  The video is an excellent look at technology in education and is thoroughly engaging.  However there were two parts of the video that were troubling to me.  Mr. Grey believes that schools in the future will contain far less teachers doing far less.  I believe that technology is a powerful tool that will make teachers more important in the future.  The educational success of countries like Finland is not built on technology but on excellent teachers.  I also address the concept of videos as teachers.  I feel that wonderful educational videos are like wonderful books, they can be used by teachers to improve learning but they themselves are not teachers.  Parking students in front of videos and calling it teaching is no different than sending them to the library with a pass.  This may work for some students but it will never revolutionize education in America.
