I’m use to the debate over internet access, blogs and social networks when I’m talking to district administrators. But here are my friends in the Ohio Education Association warning teachers to stay away from social networks.

The discussion continues on Moving at the Speed of Creativity:

I think I understand why OEA feels this is the right course for educators, but I completely disagree. Ben has it right: Educators shouldn’t be engaging in inappropriate interactions with students online or F2F (no kidding) and telling educators to stay off social networking sites is literally asking them to firmly plant their heads in the sand and pretend the Internet and the issues it raises will go away.
