Are your kids disarmed?

In this short video Henry Jenkins explains the problems associate with removing technology from our kids' schools and education. He comments that if we don't provide all kids with the opportunity to engage in learning via connections (technology mediated collaboration) and increase their learning agility we "lock them out," we create an opportunity gap and we leave them disarmed. Furthermore, he states that schools are bureaucracies and classrooms, for the most part, are designed around fixed relationships and standards. However, learning online is about the collective, it is about collaboration.

Schools must retool and give all kids opportunties to incease their learning and innovating Edgility.
