Interesting talking points:

 

Filtering systmens don't work to the student's benefit (after a certain age).  How can we keep our students safe and encourage safe online behavior?

 

My suggestions / wiki pages:

 

 

http://www.tomorrow.org/docs/National%20Findings%20Speak%20Up%202007.pdf

"Students’ frustration with school filters and firewalls has grown since 2003, with 45% of middle and high school students saying now that these tools meant to protect them inhibit their learning. And since 2004 we have heard repeatedly and more strongly each year, students’ discontent with school rules that limit their access to technology at school and rules that prohibit them from using at school the very technology tools and devices that they use constantly outside of school (cell phones, email, IM, Text messaging) in all aspects of their lives...

 

While 53% of middle and high school students are excited about using mobile devices within learning, only 15% of school leaders support that idea. Less than half as many parents as students see a place for online learning in the 21st century school. And even fewer teacher, parents and school leaders want students to have access to emails and IM accounts from school."
