m-dawg: I hope the administration encourages the use of technology with the "new" building otherwise it will all be a waste of money. Keep us updated on the reactions and progress.

the science goddess: I think it would be great to get legislators involved. In fact, my next door neighbor is a state senator and I've been dragging him into web 2.0 stuff kicking and screaming. But he is actually enjoying it.

I have expressed a lot of these same frustrations. I cannot believe the excuses given by "them" for why social networking tools are blocked.

I would hope that legislators would somehow become involved and asked the CIPA folks to clearly state that social networking is okay.

Great post loonyhiker. Online networks are not going away. Our students will be using them in their future. Digital citizenship must be taught in school to students as they will be googled by their future employers.

If the Web sites are blocked educators cannot model appropriate use. By blocking, we are doing our students a disservice.
