> the less we'll be seeing conservative, absolutist statements > like; "Twitter has *no* use in schools." I have to admit that was poorly worded. I should have said "no use in public schools". A private school might have other criteria; and of course using Twitter in a college environment is a completely different ball of wax. I couldn't detect any response to the questions I raised about Twitter -- only some generalized smears and stereotyping accusing me of never having used Twitter and of "fearing" new things. Perhaps my post was too long to read, or too rambling. So I'll ask again: Are students under 18 capable of entering into a binding contract with Twitter? If not, then Twitter itself says that using Twitter is a violation of its Terms of Service. Or should a teacher's position be to teach students to ignore terms of service and agreements with service providers? (And I'll ignore the entire legal aspect of students under 13.) . Randy -- Land of the free? The US has 700 people in prison per 100,000 citizens. In comparison, China has 110 per 100,000, France has 80 per 100,000, Saudi Arabia has 45 per 100,000. Americans live in a police state where any citizen can be jailed without trial or charges. --- Edtech Archives, posting guidelines and other information are at: http://www.h-net.msu.edu/~edweb Please include your name, email address, and school or professional affiliation in each posting.
