Myrtle Beach TLC Conference on Technology and Literacy Education

I have learned a lot, and met some delightful people at this conference. I will be posting about literacy, online learning and technology over the next few days if I can find time away from the beach and the golf.

In my hotel room there is a sign exhorting guests to “save the planet”. I am all for reusing towels, but the fact is that the planet is not in danger, cannot be. On the other hand, the quality of life that we humans enjoy, or the habitats of other species with whom we share the planet, can be adversely affected by our behaviour. But “save the planet”? No, the planet will survive, it just may be less friendly to some species, but inevitably it will favour some other species, no matter what happens.
