In his great defense of open publication, "Areopagitica," the English poet John Milton distinguished between "liberty" and "license." The former was an inalienable right, the latter a dangerous abuse. In our digital age, the Internet and the World Wide Web have provided dramatic examples of both possibilities. How can we shape our courses, curricula, and schools to encourage the fullest, deepest experience of freedom in an increasingly connected and complex world? What are the arts of freedom in a digital age, and how can they be taught authentically, creatively, and critically?
