Schools Left in the Dust on the Social Media Highway - 4 views

  • "Our computer use policy is extensive. The frame is this is how you will use the computers when you are here, you can't go on these sites and do these things while you're at school, but when they get out from school and start using computers of their own to do some of these things, then it becomes a little bit more clouded," he said.
  • The problem NEOLA faces is a lack of law to base policies on regarding student and staff use of Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, etc. In turn, there are no policies for district administrators to follow, leaving a gray area for disciplinary issues. State legislature was passed regarding bullying, so NEOLA set policies based on that, but in terms of writing policy on technology, direction is what NEOLA is lacking.

Shifting from "Blocking" to "Watching" - 0 views

  •  
    When schools first established on-ramps for the information superhighway, the common wisdom was that "filters would protect children as they use the Internet." I never bought into that myth. My position has always been that the best filtering software sits under the hardware that rides on top of the shoulders.

Encyclopedia Britannica Now Free For Bloggers - 0 views

  •  
    Britannica is now free for bloggers. Another endorsements for the increasing importance of bloggers.
  •  
    Encyclopedia Britannica is now free for bloggers from an article on 4/18/08 -- yet another reason for our students to blog. (I have students blogging publicly under pseudonyms.)

    This is fascinating, but also interesting to see how Britannica is playing catch up to Wikipedia in the market it once owned. I wonder, which would be more authoriative to you, a wikipedia quote updated daily, or Brittanica updated less often that doesn't display the authors of its content?
