  • Facebook will be the world’s engine of discovery and innovation. Consequently, public schools must evolve or die. Public Schools that block or ban facebook are choking themselves.

  • Hi LeAnn, you make some very valid points and I am hoping that we have the opportunity test drive Facebook as a communication tool! The only way that will happen is if we unblock Facebook in our schools... Thanks for the comment!

  • I like the idea, but I wonder if younger kids will be as dismissive of it as older students? When I worked as an academic librarian we tried this years ago. Hundreds of students joined our Facebook group (it was groups back then), but as soon as you'd try to interact with them in the group they'd leave in droves. Hardly any of them wanted to friend a professor or librarian because they saw it as a social place, not a place for education. You and I know that it can be a useful tool in education, but the college students I worked with weren't so keen on the idea. Maybe that's slowly changing, though, or maybe introducing it earlier like this will help with the mindset?

  20. 20. Would you Ban the Pencil? • A student might poke out the eye of another student. • A student might write a dirty word with one. Or even write a whole harassing note and pass it to another student. • One student might have a mechanical pencil making those with wooden ones feel bad. • Kids might be doodling instead of working on their assignments.
