Cool Cat Teacher Blog: Including a classmate with leukemia through skype

Cool Cat says it all!  What a wonderful use of Web 2.0 tools!   I really like what she said here:

I am firmly convinced that because this school allowed a classmate with leukemia to attend via Skype that the lives of both the class and the student are enriched.

This is proof that it is not the tools that are inherently good or evil but rather the use of the tools.

  • A hammer can kill someone but it can also build a house.
  • A nail can be driven through a hand but it can also hold the roof over your head.
  • A fist can hit but a fist can also be clasped in your hand in love.

We do not outlaw hammers, nails, or fists — we teach people to use them properly.

So should we do with blogs, wikis, podcasts, skype, and any other tool that becomes available for use in the human experience!
