9156Re: [WWWEDU] Emergence of Citizen's Media
- Nov 22, 2006This reminds me of a story involving my daughter. There was a math teacher
at her middle school who fortunately decided to retire. She really did not
treat the students with respect, especially any of the more needy students.
The school knew there were concerns. They had students complete
questionnaires. They had people visit her class but according to my
daughter, she always was nice whenever someone was watching her.
So the students cooked up a scheme. They were going to use one student¹s
video cell phone to capture images of this teacher doing what they did not
like her doing. They never actually pulled this off. But it was interesting
to me how 6th grade students understood the power of the technology to
address such concerns.
