I am really impressed by the introduction "Many Lenses" in Mark Pegrum's From Blogs to Bombs. The more and more I learn about using the Internet as a classroom, the more and more I return to the idea of teaching critical thinking. The amount of information on the interweb that is misleading or a hair shy of true can confuse students and cause a great deal of complication.
I can see developing a lesson around the 5 lenses: technological, pedagogical, social, sociopolitical, and ecological. Then students would have to rank them as to which was the most important. So, say they are looking at a community networking site... the ecological lens may not be so important, while the social lens would be. Would we teacher students to look at these sites differently?
Side Note: I was able to watch Mark's video just fine. So, if it was broke, thanks for fixing it. And I am assuming he actually spoke to an earlier PP107 class. We he be joining us for an online chat? I'd love to talk with him.
