If you subscribe to Read Write Web you may have already seen this story. Vicki Davis, author of the Cool Cat Teacher blog, and her students are planning a protest against Google’s planned shut-down of Lively. On her blog, Vicki has outlined the ways in which others can join in the attempt to get Google to reconsider their decision. See Vicki’s blog post, In Google We Trusted and Now Our Project’s Busted, for the details.
I doubt that Google will reverse their decision, but I do see value in this project. Vicki’s students and your students, if you choose to participate, will see the power and value of connected digital citizenship.
