In this episode, Dan, Zac and Alex discuss recent events that have led to the ongoing conversation surrounding school safety. Keeping our children safe is priority number one - but with so much noise surrounding the discussion itself, how can we possibly get anything accomplished? Our guest this week is Meg Jones - technology integration coach and PhD student who gives us some much needed insight into literacy studies and digital media literacy. We also chat about how the internet and social media have been able to amplify a "pile-on" mentality when it comes to important issues - and how we can help guide the conversation into more meaningful territory.
