  22. 22. Commentary<br />As the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) notes, “Web 2.0 tools can provide highly interactive and participatory environments that establish communities, open a myriad of communication channels, and ensure each individual and group a voice. In fact, there is a growing body of evidence that the collaboration inherent in the participatory nature of Web 2.0 tools can be leveraged to deepen student learning through authentic, real-world learning” (CoSN, 2009). <br />
  23. 23. In Closing<br />It takes a certain amount of giving up control. One thing to keep in mind is that these comments and these exchanges are happening out there anyway...if you don&apos;t engage with your perspective, you&apos;re giving up on the discussion. So we try to embrace controversy and show confidence that we&apos;re willing to engage with an audience in the social media space. It&apos;s a reality of communications today.<br />
