A dangerous assumption we face today is the idea that technology is neutral and that tools we use are purely expression engines. In a post-Snowden world, our heightened awareness of social media technologies, and their underlying business models raises important questions about data privacy, ownership, and control. If technology is not neutral, but at the same time foundational for the work we (educators/librarians/technologists) do, then what beliefs/ideals guide are our integration of technologies into our teaching, research, and scholarship? We encourage participants to reflect on values behind choices they make in their own practice of digital pedagogy.
