Social Networking: An Evolution in Communication Media
Most public schools block social networking websites. I put this video together to get a little perspective. It is an attempt to see the forest from the trees. Basically, my thesis is that the internet is a social network and a communication medium. Communication media are only fully used to their potential if it is a two-way medium. Teaching students how to use the internet without letting them publish, blog, tweet, etc. is like teaching them how to read without allowing them to write.
