Use those social networks!

Okay – it’s official. The National School Boards Association wants your kids to use social networks.

From Tech.Blorge:

“…Social networking may be advantageous to students — and there could already be a double standard at work. 37% of districts say at least 90% of their staff are participating in online communites of their own — related to education — and 59% of districts said that at least half were participating. “These findings indicate that educators find value in social networking,” the study notes, “and suggest that many already are comfortable and knowledgeable enough to use social networking for educational purposes with their students.”

So let’s hear from folks who have created those FaceBook pages and are interacting with their kids that way!
