Claymation for Teaching and Learning

Wes Fryer shared this incredible claymation production on his blog and via Twitter recently, as a new twist on an approach to digital storytelling.  The video below tells the story of Plato's cave.  I found it very compelling and the visual story has added a new dimension to my contemplation of this classic.  In interpreting the story, does anyone else read a parallel between "the cave" and "the classroom?"  Between the "prisoners" and teachers who are afraid or unwilling to experience teaching "in the cloud" or "outside the cave?"

As a technology innovator I sometimes feel like I've left the cave when I get a glimpse of what tech can do, and I find it incredibly hard to describe it once I'm back inside the cave - but as Plato reminds us we have an ethical obligation to try.
