New Trier Teachers and Students Need to Demand Access to Valuable Video

OK, I know that not all video is blocked at New Trier but most of it is.

We have been working with the IT Technology Committee and our work has gone down a black hole.  Librarians did research last year to present valid reasons why our student filtering of video needs to be changed. The faculty technology staff developers seem to be in agreement. In fact, everyone seemed to be in agreement but nothing has changed.

The learning opportunities through media are extraordinary. Stories told through video so powerful. Let's take control of our learning.  Who out there is willing to help me on this crusade?

While I am at it, let me share a twitter post from Greg Mortenson.  gregmortenson: The Girl Effect: The Clock Is Ticking: new video just released

Please watch and learn. Women do hold up "Half the Sky".
