WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS SCHOOL POLICY? I want to hear your comments and opinions. This is true. Teachers will be suspended if they will use social networking sites, most especially Facebook, in instruction and other school-related activities.

I'm a Religion/Theology/Values Education teacher. I've been using social networking sites and other Web 2.0 tools in education and evangelization for years. I was shocked when this policy was announced and implemented in our school. Please help me convince our administrators of the advantages and benefits of Social Networking sites and Web 2.0 tools. Please send me resources I can present them. I will wait for your responses. I hope you can help me. Thank you. May God bless you.

P.S. I am an advocate of Faith 2.0 - Making Sense of our Faith in the Digital World. You may check my websites and blogs.

Hi Chester, what a timely question! I trust that there are folks out-there with access to Facebook etc. and working in a learning environment. I've been following policies and guidelines of business and church organizations. I believe that you will find the Online Database of Social Media Policy link of interest to you. If these tools are being used in business, with guidelines and direction, why not used in schools so that we can teach these students how to communicate and interact in an online environment?
