48: The Free Access Educator

February 22, 2015 at 12:15PM • 52 minutes • Wiki Entry

In this week’s meeting, Bradley Chambers of Out Of School works through step eleven by describing the day-to-day struggles he has as the I.T. director of an educational institution, why he leans more towards allowing students free access to information rather than broadly and strictly blocking internet content, and that teaching digital citizenship is important for the current and future generations of children.

In addition, we discuss Apple's deployment practices for schools, how operating system bugs dramatically affect his job, how otherwise good hardware vendors tend to make the most terrible software and the line in the sand when offering support in 'bring your own device' environments.
