I’m often contacted by people who tell me that they are interested in using some of the social media stuff that I talk about but their school won’t let them.
Personally I think that this policy is mad. This excellent article by Tom Barrett explains why.
Even more useful Tom has set up a spreadsheet detailing the access policies of various different local authorities. If anyone who reads this is based in a school it would be great if you could take a few minutes and fill it in. It would be really useful to have a detailed picture of local authority internet politicies.
Thanks for your help with this one.
