Share your thoughts (a few ideas listed below)
Please identify your perspective (student, teacher, administrator, parent, etc.)
How do you feel about the policies in place?
What limitations do they place on you (or your students)?
What would need to change in order to help you feel that you were providing or experiencing a more authentic learning opportunity?
Are there policies in place that actually promote social networking or the integration of technology into your classroom that would be worth sharing?
How do the policies impact authentic teaching and learning about your digital footprint?
