It would be like China or Iran or . . . the average American school. Maybe it’s time we advocate for open Information in every context.
No disagreement from me here John. Yes, there are some parts of the Internet which are not developmentally appropriate for our students, but to block access to the Internet and pretend that what we are doing is protecting students is a fallacy. Banning kids from huge swaths of the Internet (and also not talking about them) is much like roping off all of the dangerous spots in the playground, and expecting kids to learn about keeping themselves safe by guessing what the dangers are inside the roped off areas.
Nice John. Thank you.
Great post John I like !
