Facepalm of the week:

Educators must prepare students to be the multiliterate individuals that they will need to be successful in their futures. Schools are ultimately responsible for preparing students to be critical users of available technologies (Damarin, 2000; Leu, Kinzer, Coiro, & Cammack, 2004), problem solvers, and good communicators in networked civic spaces (Mishra & Kereluik, 2011; Binkley et al., 2012). 

To do this, educators must first explore the spaces provided by collaborative technologies for participants to engage in meaning-making in order to release the harnessed potential of said technologies.

Get it? Educators must release the harnessed potential of technologies, in order to harness students to the multiple literacies which will steer them to success.

Heaven forbid we were to get it muddled and release the potential of students, letting them steer the technologies according to the students' own definitions of success.
