I think we need to take back some of the territory. Many people I talk to say things like:
- "No, I don't text"
- YouTube is just a bunch of garbage
- Kids are just so much better at this stuff
- I wouldn't want to have "FaceBook" page
- What if kids saw what I posted?
But if I don't claim some space where the kids are then I am irrelevant. I wish that I had felt a little more comfortable doing that when I was a classroom teacher and I had understood better the perspective that the Administrators and IS Specialists. If I were back in the classroom I would want an online presence, but I would have to establish guidelines. What those guidelines would be I am still trying to formulate.
