I’ve now spent time reading through comments and coverage on the web, and came across Vicki Davis’s blog and post on the subject. It’s an absolute must-read. She knows what she is talking about.
Her point on the number of comments being made by people who have not read the Bill is itself worth noting. While I did read the Bill, I did not have the contextual knowledge she so clearly has, as to how schools in the US manage access to social software today. So I’m very grateful for her insights.
Anyone interested in the use of social software in education must read her post and her detailed critique of the Bill. There’s so much there for me to absorb and learn from. Thank you Vicki.
