    Gil, I really don't have any problem with "...revolution didn't center
    around technology..." at all. Indeed, the revolution must center around
    the *learners*; technology, in any of its various forms (from pencils to
    computers) is the term we use to describe tools to help in the facilitation
    of learning. I may have said this here before, but I'll repeat it again: I
    don't see teaching as anything but learning facilitation. Members of the
    local teacher's union strongly disagree with me, which interferes with my
    ability to perform some of my consulting activities, but the school my kids
    now attend was founded by one of those union members that strongly agrees.

    Can you point to any (hopefully English language) documentation on the
    revolution you describe?

    Many thanks for your post.
