I love this quote...

...from Stephen Downes:

"When I speak to teachers these days, I don't tell them how to improve the way they teach their students. I talk to them about how they can improve the way they teach themselves."

Stephen's quote is what I've been trying to convey myself at various times on this blog, that before teachers can use new Web 2.0 technologies with their students, they have to be comfortable with them and understand their potential for themselves.

You can read Stephen's entire post here. It's Stephen's response to a post by Gary Stager responding to David Warlick responding to Jeff Utecht. Confused yet?
