A community for teacher-librarians and other educators

Huge discussion is happening re librarians and social media and change. Your thoughts?

It seems like the SLJ cover Doug and I wrote is waking an elephant that has been hiding in the room. Take a look at the responses to my blog post and the article and the conversations in the other blogs:
* Doug Johnson Where are the Others?
* Buffy Hamilton Refuting Inertness
* Cathy Jo Nelson Something for the "yeah buts" and Filters, a problem of complacency
* Karen Kliegman Cheering from the sidelines
* Jim Schneider Change, leadership, teaching and learning
* Tyler Reed (Scholastic) Why we need to embrace change
* Carolyn Foote's So, what can we do?

What do you think is going on?

I posted about this as well on the blog and my own,

What I think is going on is that you and Doug wrote a great article that hit the nail on the head and have inspired those of us who embrace change as something that defines the field!

Yeah! Thanks for the reference to the great articles! How very cool to read all these (haven't made it through them yet) But I thougth it would be a good place to ask this:

We had the local city council candidates in a panel last week. Students had some good questions and things went pretty smoothly. There were some issues that have been running under the surface of the election that have been hot button issues that came to light during the panel. Voiced got elevated, fingers started pointing and there was lots of groaning/jeering from the students. Perhaps not the most flattering moment for these candidates.

Question- we have students that weren’t able to participate that would like to see it. We recorded the 30 minute segment on a flip cam and it is a rather large file. Our host/social studies teacher would like to just post it online on something like Youtube. He says there are lots of folks wondering about this and they should see the real thing rather than hear the stories. We didn’t have written permission from the candidates to film this public forum.

What risk do we run if we post? What things should we consider before we post it? Should be fun to hear what you have to say!
