Scenario 1, continued

Continuing Scenario 1, you decide to check out how the student made such an amazing project. You go to Twitter Parade and quickly discover the source of the student's amazing work. As the screenshot below shows, all it takes to create a parade is to insert your own screen name or a keyword or hashtag (like #oilspill). Everything else -- from the music to the animation to the Twitter feed to the selection of users whose avatars appear -- was created not by the student's own imagination and skill but by that of the engineers and computer programmers behind the scenes.

How does that change your perception of the work? What response might you give the principal?
