Our school district uses MOODLE (not the only learning system on the block) to integrate social networking and teach our students and teachers those skills in a protected environment.  Let FaceBook be for the general population not for education.

Yes, I would have to agree with the posting from "anonymous" about the use of social networking.  Technology is a wonderful thing; however, it seems that texting, e:mail, facebook, etc. are replacing some important aspects of human communication. 

For example, in our elementary schools today, we spend very little time or effort teaching the importance of penmanship - forget about introducing the art of cursif hand writing.  In addition, spell check has made correct spelling/grammar a thing of the past.  Will writing a personal letter or thank you note become a thing of the past too?  What ever happened to talking on the telephone or visiting with a friend in person?  Has texting replaced the need for this type of human interaction?

Oh, what about when technology fails to work?  Try having 25 second grade students in a computer lab and the website for your web 2.0 lesson plan is down for "emergency" repair.   Anyway, don't get me wrong - I'm not a tech "hater"...just addressing some of the downsides.  - Anne

I think the most important thing when dealing with social network sites like Facebook is self-control. This should be educated at the schools. The parents have also to know what their kids are doing over the internet as we all know that the internet is not a very safe place even for the adults. Peter @ Stacaravans
