Great Interview With Will Richardson

I just read a great interview with Will Richardson at http://bit.ly/97IWBU. He is a former teacher, a technology enthusiast, a consultant, a respected presenter, and the author of the popular book "Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms." During the interview, he provides some great perspectives and opinions on why technology skills are an essential component to our students' education and their futures. He comments on why he thinks it's important for teachers to be Googleable, what school administrators can do to help teachers, what network literacy means, why educators need to begin emphasizing the learning process over knowledge, and much more. I strongly encourage all educators to check out this interview.
