Thinking about... Linkiness - 1 views

  •  
    "So, this new platform at my school is all shiny and bright as you can see if you log on and take a look (very shiny and very bright!), but it doesn't look like I will actually be able to use it for anything since I cannot link to anything there, nor can anyone else. It surprises me that faculty would want to pour so much time and energy into content that is inherently self-limiting in this way."

    This makes me grateful for the opportunities we have at our school.

Online Petition: Oklahoma City Public Schools Must Adopt Balanced Internet Content Filt... - 0 views

  •  
    "To acquire and practice literacy skills today, students and educators in Oklahoma City Public Schools require access to Evernote, Google Docs, Gmail, Edmodo, Posterous, Celebrate Oklahoma Voices, and other educationally appropriate, interactive websites. All these websites are currently (as of February 9, 2012) blocked by OKCPS for student access. OKCPS must stop its "draconian" and unjustified Internet content filtering policies and adopt BALANCED policies. The district must TRUST teachers and empower them to directly bypass the content filter with their login credentials when it is professionally justified for instruction and learning."
