Access Denied

Andy Carvin: “Here we were, a group of educators participating in a professional development seminar trying to discuss the role that Web 2.0 sites can play in civic education – at a presidential library, no less – and we were denied access to the information and tools we needed to have that discussion.”

    It’s a bad situation, I agree. We have the same filters in place at the high school where I work (which makes a bit more sense than it happening in a presidential library, I guess). I truly don’t know how we are supposed to teach the Internet users of today about Web 2.0 under these circumstances, unless we’re supposed to do something archaic with screen captures and PowerPoint. I’m going to push to be allowed to set up an RSS feed from our library web site. The top-dog technician for the county is in favor of using RSS, but has his hands tied by policy. But I might be able to push this through–then I just need to take the time (and remember) to keep it up-to-date and flowing. But, of course, my students still might not be able to access my feed from school.
