New NSBA Report on Social Networking

New NSBA Report on Social Networking

Andy Carvin's blog at PBS on the new NSBA (US National School Boards Association) study on Social Networking and student use. Some interesting notes are the improvement in the children's sense of safety online (m0re private sites, not as much personal info, less interaction with shady characters)
But also - a not so good item is that teachers are less comfortable than parents.

Andy did a really nice article on it. Well worth a read.
