A Call for Adults

I have just read ‘Innovators, Not Hackers: Stop Portraying Youth as Digital Deviants’ by Nicole Mirra. This was a little wake up call for me and I suspect for many who read it. We are too quick to judge especially where technology is concerned and in many ways, adults have an ingrained lack of trust of young people with technology. Changing this lack of the trust is the foundation of OzDLs. With that trust in place, young people can really provide so much to the enhancement and development of an education that truly embraces the power of technology. Look down this blog and get in touch with people who have started to trust young people with technology, utilise the power and knowledge, the lack of fear, the willingness to get involved and innovate. See for yourself and for your school what this new of working and thinking looks like. Student action with technology.
