"Students are happiest when they are free to communicate. Today's collaborative technologies make that easier than ever. For teachers, these technologies open new opportunities for formative assessment."

“I encourage teachers who are not comfortable with digital technologies to take advantage of the expertise that is available to them. I spend a lot of time with my students to help them develop codes of behavior when interacting online. We talk about how what they do online might affect others; how what they publish will exist permanently; and how they need to be diligent about citing sources.

“I also show students the ways in which these same technologies enable them to communicate anonymously to avoid possible embarrassment; connect globally with people who are not like them; and become better critical evaluators of sources of information they find online.”
