I am interested to see how many schools open facebook or MySpace and teach a class on responsibility on the web.
Our high school teaches a course called Netiquette but many of our students think it’s a joke because they know all the answers (what 16 year old doesn't?) and I’m betting that 95% of the kids don’t go back and see what may be inappropriate on their site. We often find out that our students are posting inappropriate school related information on their sites and tracking them down to have it removed.
In my humble opinion Social networking does not belong in the schools. Education based networking I’m all for. Leave the socializing to between classes, lunch and after school.
