Moral, Ethical & Legal Issues in Education
A Quick Overview of Last Week’s Class
By golly Ms. Molly, we’ve almost made it! This past week we discussed many different moral, ethical, and legal issues in the world of education. Some of the topics we discussed were, but are not limited to: sites such as Coursehero and Chegg, Teacher’s Pay Teachers, sharing created and purchased materials, material ownership, copyright shakedowns, OER resources, terms of services, interacting with students and families on social media and more! It was quite an action-packed class, that’s for sure!

The Fight to Catch-Up
The fight to catch up lately has been very real for me. Last week I thought I was finally on top of things, had a good roadmap of what I needed to get done and how I planned to get there, and then life, asthma, and allergies came into play and what I thought would be done, just isn’t. So here I am, a little later than usual trying to put together a well-planned outpost that has all the meat and potatoes, starter salad, and dessert to ensure I have a full meal deal post here. So all Y’all out there hoping that I too have these days can be fully assured that more than not I feel a little scrambly lately, and trying to do the best that I can. At least I feel like I have moved from being burnt out to having spring fever (snow mold and all), and I’m not sure which one is harder to deal with.

A Little Recap
Wow! It’s been one heck of a ride lately. Between all of the hustle and bustle at school, racing to pick my kiddo up after work, and scurrying around picking up odds and ends around the house just to try to keep all of the plates I’m holding in the air balanced. It seems that a lot of us are feeling this lately. I think we’ve passed the stages of burnout and are now moving along in a predictable rhythm that has all of the plates oddly balanced in their own way. We’re all in this together, learning alongside one another and getting better in our own weird way every day. So, cheers to learning, balancing, and staying afloat. This too shall pass.
