On October 29, 2010, I shared a five minute “lightning talk” at OpenBeta5 in Oklahoma City at the Co-Working Collaborative, making a passionate case for why we need balanced content filtering in our schools. Thanks to the videography work of Opus Video Productions, that presentation is available on YouTube.
See my October 29th post, “#OpenBeta5 and Ideas for the Balanced Filtering Online Gradebook,” for more background, along with the referenced websites from the presentation balancedfiltering.org and Unmasking the Digital Truth.
One of my top new year’s resolutions for 2011 is getting this “Grade my school content filter” web application built and offered free for teachers, students and parents around the United States to begin using to catalyze change in support of balanced Internet content filtering in our schools.
I’m submitting this talk as a proposal for TEDxOKC on April 8, 2011. By that time, I hope the “Grade my Content Filter” web application will be available for use! Follow this project on Twitter: @balancedfilter!
