Teaching in Glass Houses (Steve Dembo)

Notes at ITSC 2010.

I want my kid's first, last name AND city to be attached to their best work.  I don't want him thinking that he is anonymous online.

Schools and libraries may not receive E-Rate discounts unless they adopt policies addressing:

•Educating minors about appropriate online behavior

•Cyberbullying awareness

•Interacting with adults on social networking sites and chat rooms (THIS IS NOT PROHIBITING IT)

College Confidential

Highlight a student's username;  Google them; Find out as much as possible, both good and bad.
