Are you worried about education?
Nov 29, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes
In a recent post on candid videos I argued that teachers should stop behaving so badly and that viewers should demonstrate more discernment when they watch them. Wolfgang Greller disagrees. "For one thing, teachers do have a right to fun and enjoyment too. Why demand self-censorship of the potential victims," especially victims of malicious or misleading attacks? Also, people begin to form beliefs even when they are viewing critically. And "let's not forget the intention behind posting: causing harm and embarrassment." In sum, "a spotless life cannot defend you if you are rightly or wrongly publically outed or ridiculed," writes Greller.
