Dilbert, via Assorted Stuff, (who declined to name the Mordac of his district):
Like most districts, we have our own Mordac. There are actually several people filling the role here. There are the hard-core techs who speak the programming language and are the true gatekeepers of the filter. There is someone (The Face) who responds to teacher inquiries---most often with a "No." and someone who serves as a go-between for the techs and The Face. The overall impression is that their jobs are there to make sure no one has access to technology, much like Dilbert faces in the workplace. Technology is their own private playground. The overall attitude is "How dare teachers and students think they should have access to it, too!"
It makes me sad that so many of our students are ready for the next steps in technology---and are light years ahead of their teachers---but those teachers who are ready to move with them are instead giving up. (HappyChyck is the latest casualty). How do we expect to help prepare kids for the world they will be walking into when it's full of Mordac clones?
