Being so immersed in technology in our daily lives we can sometimes miss the impact it is having on society as a whole. Critical conversations in the classroom are necessary to keep students grounded in some of the larger issues of the day. We will demonstrate an example of a lesson plan around the “right to be forgotten” debate and provide guidance into how students can become part of this and other technology conversations through critical inquiry and research.
