@James409Jason there were certainly many people in the 1960s who disagreed with civil disobedience as a form of political speech too…

@James409Jason they also need to be ready to bear the full consequences of their actions, which are likely professionally harmful…

via Echofon in reply to James409Jason

@James409Jason I’m not saying I agree entirely with them, but they certainly have a right to engage in these kinds of political acts

via Echofon in reply to James409Jason

@James409Jason teachers are capable of engaging in civil disobedience just like any other citizen. Even over a reading assessment…

@James409Jason @ClaudiaSwisher I definitely believe acts of civil disobedience can help move our democracy forward in certain circumstances

@James409Jason @ClaudiaSwisher Those choosing to break the rules or laws need to be ready to face the consequences

@James409Jason @ClaudiaSwisher acts of civil disobedience challenge everyone involved.

@tonyvincent @bhwilkoff @datruss worst case is if YouZtube rejects your fair use claim it counts as one strike against your channel.

@bhwilkoff @tonyvincent @datruss I’ve filed a fair use claim with YouTube previously and it was successful. It was also instructive

via Echofon in reply to bhwilkoff

@tonyvincent @bhwilkoff @datruss whether you get a takedown from YouTube will depend on the preference of the music publisher

@bhwilkoff @datruss I looked back through my tweets and don’t have any pictures, but @tonyvincent shared a video

@datruss @bhwilkoff is that just a suspicion about feedburner getting killed or have you read about that somewhere?

via Echofon in reply to datruss

@bhwilkoff @datruss Yes we should! @tonyvincent included some great memorial photos for dead Web 2.0 tools at

@EDmerger Right - it’s common for teachers who use it do it to/for everyone, regardless…

@EDmerger That said, I’m not a big @ClassDojo fan. I’m not going to demonize it as a tool or those who choose to use it, however.

@EDmerger I’d say not in every context. Yes, extrinsic rewards can be overused. They can be appropriate for some kids in specific contexts
