Should Teachers Follow Business Media?

What is the teacher's role in keeping abreast of technology advancements that are shaping our society? Should teachers follow business technology blogs and magazines? I follow some blogs, some educator technology groups on Diigo: http://groups.diigo.com/groups/classroom20, http://groups.diigo.com/groups/discovery-educator-network, and http://groups.diigo.com/groups/infusEDtech and subscribe to Wired magazine. Some weeks I'm too overwhelmed to read all that comes my way. What is our responsibility in this regard?

Interesting point Jon. I was recently asked what I think school might look like in 2029. The business world certainly could give us some insight into the future of what we will need to be ready for in the teaching world...What will the education system look like in just 10 years???
