How Losing Net Neutrality Will Change Teaching and Learning

How Losing Net Neutrality Will Change Teaching and Learning | @iSchoolLeader Magazine | Scoop.it
If the information available is now accessible based upon the amount of money the provider is willing to pay, then the Internet will separate from being a place of democracy and become a place where money controls information!
Steven Engravalle's insight:

Essentially, net neutrality grantees consumers that we have access to all content regardless of perspective or source. Without it, providers will decide what customers receive and/or what is free and what is not. What information comes quickly and which will be slowed. Content will be offered to the highest bidder. Internet providers will make decisions for us.

90% of Parents Think Their Kids Are on Track in Math & Reading. The Real Number? Just 1 in 3, Survey Shows | @iSchoolLeader Magazine | Scoop.it

There are many components to improving writing skills through the writing process. The journey requires a destination, a Friday Night Lights event where students demonstrate what they have learned to an authentic audience.
