This week I have written about unblocking social networking sites so we can empower our students to learn using those sites, helping our students create and manage an online presence, and helping our students become more information literate. These are three of many of ethical issues related to technology. It would be impractical to provide an exhaustive list of ethical guidelines for using technology in the 21st century, simply because there are too many variables at this point in the game, and because it would be so long no one would read it. For my purposes here, I choose three of what I consider to be hinderances for our students. I feel if students aren’t adequately prepared in these three areas, they will be at a disadvantage once they enter the marketplace. It will be harder for them to compete, succeed, and be successful in whatever they choose. Hopefully this week I have sparked some thought with each of you as you look at your teaching and how others in your school are currently teaching. What happens next is up to you and I hope you take it to the next level by having a conversation with other teachers, educators, administrators, community members, and most important, your students. Only through this conversation will you start to make change happen and help your students become better learners and members of society.
