This podcast is a recording of my presentation on January 31, 2008, at the MidWinter Conference of the OU K-20 Center held in Norman, Oklahoma, on the campus of the University of Oklahoma. Most Oklahoma school districts censor and filter Internet content more strictly than the communist government of China. It is very important to protect students from objectionable content on the Internet as well as our school districts from liability risks, but it is also critical that we provide more open access to learners of all ages who are the digital netizens of the 21st century. In this session we will explore practical ways school district leaders in Oklahoma and elsewhere are providing differentiated Internet access for teachers and students, encouraging cultures of accountability and responsibility when it comes to the use of digital resources, and helping learners develop capacities for media literacy as well as the ethical use and creation of media resources.
