Empowering the K-12 Classroom

Here’s the most articulate and succinct posting I’ve seen to date about allowing social tols, the webb and other 2.0 type stuff in schools.
It starts with a story and then uses a clear metaphor.
Read it here.
“A hammer can kill someone but it can also build a house.
A nail can be driven through a hand but it can also hold the roof over your head.
A fist can hit but a fist can also be clasped in your hand in love.
We do not outlaw hammers, nails, or fists — we teach people to use them properly.”
