Who’s afraid of the big bad ‘network’?
We are starting a project called ‘Who’s afraid of the big bad network?’ we will be collaboratively carrying out action research into how to begin using social networks in schools. We have been using them for years now, but are reviewing our current policy with a group of teachers, students and parents. We are looking for teachers from Primary or Secondary schools who would like to develop using these tools in their schools to join our collaborative group to work on this over the next couple of months.
A good starting point is to have a look at this video on the benefits of using Social Networks in Schools have a look at Leon Cych’s site Social networks for schools and see my interview:
