Technology advocate and guru Will Richardson has an interesting piece on
A few months ago Tom Barrett put out a request via Twitter and other places
schools to co-create a list of what tools are being blocked in which schools across the country. He offered up a spreadsheet
for that purpose that attempted to gather that data that got about 25 responses. At the time, I thought it was an interesting idea, and when I heard Jay Rosen’s great talk about at TedxNYED
, I started thinking about how it might be interesting to take Tom’s idea and collect and pool what we know about our approach to filtering on a more global scale and try to make some sense of it collaboratively. What do we block, and where do we block it? And, more importantly, why?
