Our Moral Obligation

I was on a search for videos on YouTube that I could share with my staff and came across Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach’s 2008 talk in Christchurch,  New Zealand. While it is not new to say that teachers have the moral obligation to prepare students for their future in the job world, it is provocative (at least with some) to throw down the gauntlet and fuse this obligation with the use of social media and other technologies within the safety nets of our classrooms. We are doing students a huge disservice if we ignore, criticize and/or fuel the fear-mongering that surrounds the use of SM and tech in our schools.
