Times used to be simpler: a man was a gentleman, a woman was a lady. But today? Today the kind of questions we face include “Is it okay if I ignore a ‘friend request’ on Facebook?”, “Is it impolite to put my cell phone on the table in the restaurant?” or “How long can I use the free WiFi in the café without ordering anything?”. The digital lifestyle is changing our lives and our behavior. So who can we turn to for advice on questions concerning “Etiquette 2.0”?
LessonCast seeks to replicate that mentoring relationship: experienced teachers sharing their knowledge with other teachers looking for new ideas. The LessonCast format is similar to storytelling – peering over the shoulder of creative, expert teachers. The LessonCast community showcases educators’ expertise and spreads classroom-cultivated, teacher-tested ideas that work.
