Common Craft Explains Net Neutrality

Lee and Sachi LeFever at Common Craft usually don't create videos about events in the news, but they've made an exception for net neutrality. In their new video Net Neutrality Explained by Common Craft they do a nice job of explaining the concept of net neutrality and what changes to net neutrality could mean for consumers and producers of online content. The video is embedded below. You can also find the video on and on YouTube.

Applications for Education
If you or your students have been wondering what net neutrality is, this video is for you. The end of the video provides some good prompts for further discussion with students. Consider using these questions to prompt discussion with your students, "who should control access to websites?" "What are the implications of slowing access to some websites?"
