'A year of bad press and security concerns means the educational potential of social networking sites remains largely untapped' writes Jerome Monahan in today’s Education Guardian. The full text is here with a small quote from me on padlocks! I also looked around a few education-related blogs today. School blogs seem to be quite disappointing – mostly providing ‘corporate’ information. Some do allow pupil voice, but this is often unfocused and short-lived. However, I enjoyed this school visit blog – the author turns out to be the Head of Education for East Lothian Council. I also stumbled on a student-teacher blog with much similarity to this one. Both are trainees on PGCE courses. One blog stops on Sunday 19 November and the other on the previous Sunday (12th November). Doesn’t that just tell the whole story!
