  • @sukveen Thanks for your feedback. I'm glad the presentation was useful :) I have recently done quite a lot of work on the risk management side of using social media with students, so you might want to check out http://meganpoore.wikispaces.com. There's a lot of stuff on that wiki, but I'd be happy to set up a Skype conversation with you to discuss and to share some further resources. Email me at meg@meganpoore.com and we can talk further!

    Cheers,

    meg :)

  • This article is absolutely brilliant. Thanks Megan. I am an ICT teacher in and found your tips useful. I am currently using the wikis, blogs and social networking sites with students to make connections however, wanted to be absolutely sure if I was on the right path. What would be your take on the ethical issues about information by students and their pictures uploaded on public domain as they are the vulnerable ones?
