Great post. You hit the nail on the head with this one. I feel as if we are fighting an uphill battle.


I've gone one step further and made a myspace exclusively for educational reasons. I take tons of precautions to make sure my site is clean and strictly for teaching. It's a great way to interact with the kids and possibly gauge their interests without them even knowing it. Anyways, people are too nervous about new media. If people only stayed with the trends, they wouldn't get lost in them or worse yet let them pass them by.

I love the idea, Rick and Jose.
In my school both myspace and facebook are banned, and most of my students only have access to the Internet at school. So there are few worries that we'll become socially enmeshed through myspace or facebook ;)

Then again, you know what happens? The students still access the sites - through proxy servers. So now we will not only be inappropriately enmeshed but criminally (ok, maybe I'm exaggerating) as well.

We're all going to hell in a handcart.
