Think Before You Tweet (Blog or Update Status) - 18 views

  • Speaking these words can be a way to commiserate with colleagues, or they can become “in jokes” among friends.  These exchanges can be OK when we are face-to-face with others, as we have body language and voice inflections to help us understand the meaning and context behind the statements.  Online is a different situation, however.

Students Find Ways to Thwart Facebook Bans - NYTimes.com - 17 views

  • But schools persist. “We know there is no education in social networking,” said Ken Sanders, the principal of a middle school in Michigan that has one of the firmest bans: students can work only on computers provided by the school, and cellphones are banned, too, since smartphones can’t be blocked on schools’ systems. “Kids should be in school to learn, so we have a system that blocks all personal access,” he said.

We all need to learn to resist things that distract us from the current task/goal at hand. However, to simply ban this doesn't help anyone learn digital social and coping skills necessary for success beyond the school walls.
