We have watched the video (KONY 2012) and began the discussion around information and how people interact within society. Giving students tools to work to understand the issues and then opportunities to build their own research and plan towards their outcome (participation). However, I admit it is a slow and critical approach to guided learning processes and critical thinking within our society. It has been a great week for teaching socially relevant material and hearing the passion of our students through social media. Finally, a really good documentary about Facebook and social change is coming as we discuss the Arab Spring and the role that social media continues to have opening doors and smashing barriers in that part of the world.

I am excited for what and how people engage and act within their own space to create awareness and ultimately change the world. And to Mich, peace in the middle east.
