Facebook Flap

Filed under: Uncategorized — Donna DesRoches @ 4:30 pm

Via Doug Johnson I came across this article about Minneapolis students facing disciplinary actions after their Facebook photos are sent to school officials.

 Students disciplined for the Facebook pictures were suspended from sports or activities.

This article could be used to generate discussion about what is shared on FaceBook and the action taken by school officials.

As Doug Johnson points out in his article Rules for the Social Web, we need to consider how we not only protect children from predators and each other (cyberbullying) but from themselves.
