Do we want schools where leaders ban and block or empower and prepare? While banning and blocking certainly is more convenient and makes the jobs of adults easier, is this really best for kids? When we complain about students using social media or technology irresponsibly can we really blame them if they've never been taught how to responsibly use these tools for learning?
This presentation features school leaders who ban & block (Anthony Orsini) as well as those who empower and prepare (Chris Lehmann and Eric Shenninger). It also provides examples of a teacher (Erin Schoening) and students from The Science Leadership Academy who have had success using social media in education.
