Donna Desroches extrapolates on the key issues surrounding the use of web 2.0 tools in schools. Do we try to create a school safe haven or do we open the doors and let in the messy real world? It is easy to make this an either/or discussion. I wonder if it is that simple. Either safe haven or messy world? Perhaps it is some safe haven and some messy world. I think a major part of our role is helping students to become aware of the issues which surround the way they are interacting in the world and on the internet. If we aren’t really out there; can we ask the questions? Will we know what the questions are?
I am delighted to have Donna asking the questions and wrestling with the answers.
