Hi there. Thanks to those who have replied to my last post. I had a day away from it all yesterday. Thanks Leigh for your interactions. We could use MySpace pages as examples of how people shape their identities and how they interpret life. Social networking sites could be useful too in analysing artistic expressions, or observing cultural trends. The issue though may be how others may percieve the use of these sites as many are full of trashy stuff that colours the perception. The ‘others’ here could be parents or employers. On the other hand those with disabilities may find that social networking sites make it easier to connect with other students than in a normal classroom.

 I have found a useful discussion about this on the following link which explains how some use these tools to keep in touch with students and monitor their behaviour… intersting discussion (sorry for the length. Is there a way to reduce such a link? http://www.edweek.org/chat/transcript_03_12_08.html?levelId=1000&rale2=KQE5d7nM%2FXAYPsVRXwnFWYRqIIX2bhy1%2BKNA5buLAWEjmhtTxb8AsCS49%2FdAOa4XFN6jQi3LmomQ%0Akehn2UxMK9BFuEevmakoionhUD8euKvnBBbVElm%2F82I8AMfr4Wq46hGb%2F%2FkJ4YArdvpUDfrYf6Fu%0AmwVwfA8aZa%2BaQFsPjJ7b%2BxkhnNVikzMNQj%2Figf3lXEgYe3yWW3Zx3Xtqt9srJ4SrVNOpQdeB9UNn%0AZgGVhUJza2Xg0BWKDSc%2BtLbwHDCS0WCLFK8xN86alWx%2FAHCtLfYopUJR3AqCJR4vSqvqSXpOUta6%0Analk53cXJ4oI2iDKWuwjWPkRycMUl2DP%2FWei1RmpJCR2gDPusw55UmF0LEQr7IL0zoA%2FKt6IzjTb%0Aluud6L%2BixMo%2FXtQBQ15iP5XE9AS39GmK%2Feo8b4bN5ANcFD5rCxpyY4FdhuSOQf7ksLgtiNXELSlP%0AZdIBH0yktPa%2FE9tufDRVFPBv4sW9e6umaIw6zEgzFnUsbrTmyVnXWNGh%2Fm9iR4xl6zBHB3tq4PNf%0ATyeVprLagG446FlZti55nWA%2B3OCj%2BvO833gMS%2Fowwy6UlYdzVnyPbQ3L969szNpt%2Bj7c4KP687zf%0AeoYSSgtY%2BQ3%2BrUwRBTlgSL%2FEO40ulCl1sAW2kcyfTxjUrXp8WZJJ6MfJELfuTj9FqKNQ5lPBLAQq%0ARWOinwPvQ8NvRhGKB5RjLxw4YDtlKazqBNE65IbhAVTKPi8fetkgPVol4tsJDnNhjrFQCRPGtpm6%0A3m4%2FyHQ7KyA7n1B7k7x6c6TmknSc7Q%3D%3D
