Teaching the Social Web
APRIL 6, 2009
Yesterday my wife got a message on Facebook from a friend asking for advice on how to handle a young teenage girl’s use of MySpace. I’ve seen discussions and blog posts about appropriate use of social tools like Facebook , Twitter , LinkedIn and FriendFeed in the workplace. If kids, and I mean pre-teen kids, can learn to research online using government web sites and Wikipedia, then shouldn’t they also learn about how to use social sites for learning?
