    1. we tackle questions of inequalities

      We all need to be doing this!

    2. do we remind them of the risks of placing their information online and give them choices of how much personal information to reveal? Do our students recognize the ways in which Facebook’s privacy settings continually shift without user permission, and what posting a photo today might mean for their future employment opportunities? Do students recognize the importance of password-protecting their devices and having different passwords across platforms?

      These are all important questions. I appreciate that they are presented after the ideas about real world learning and participating. We need to stay away from fear based teaching online. This ordering makes this possible.

    3. progressively rather than sequentially

      This is unclear to me. I understand not teaching sequentially, but what does it mean to teach progressively? I am thinking it means to teach the skills, concepts and tools in conjunction with each other gradually over time. With the assumption that they all go hand in hand.

    4. Arab Spring.

      I have been thinking about the roll of digital literacy in Brexit and the recent US elections as well. Where have we succeeded and where have we failed in spreading information.

    5. When would you use Twitter instead of a more private forum? Why would you use it for advocacy? Who puts themselves at risk when they do so?

      These questions are so important. How do we interact and participate online and how does that compare to how we interact and participate in a face-to-face interaction. What happens when you interact with someone outside of your circle. This can also expand to discussions about how does knowledge spread.

    6. skills

      Skills are one piece of this puzzle that can't be ignored, but also can't be the end.
