This article discusses the changing context of education brought about by technology and the COVID pandemic and its implications for teachers and teacher education. Specifically, the article argues that technological changes have made instruction much less important for teachers because online learning resources and knowledge experts have increased tremendously and are globally available. Learning is no longer limited to the classroom or teachers. In this new context, teachers need to shift from instruction to coaching and recourse curating. Teacher education should thus shift from teaching future teachers how to teach and what to teach to helping future teachers become human educators who support the growth of individual students.
