Why?

 

On the theory that a student practices and reflects, whereas a teacher practices and demonstrates, we ask you to surpass your role as 'teacher' and do all four!; see slide 22 from Downes, S. (2007). Personal Learning the Web 2.0 Way. Stephen Downes: Knowledge, Learning, Community. Audio available: https://www.downes.ca/presentation/144
