We need to focus on TRUST too! (Teaching Responsible Use of Social Technology)


Via David Warlick:

First of all, this gets my vote for the best education acronym of the decade — TRUST. The guys at EdTechTalk have created a web site/community site designed to give us a play to offer alternatives to the DOPA law. Here’s a quote from the About Us page.

Social Technology (or social networking) is changing many aspects of society and has tremendous potential in education, both inside and outside of the classroom. This site is designed as a resource for educators interested in using social technology, but concerned about how to do so appropriately and address concerns from parents and administrators.

Librarians too could be TRUSTing with their users: classes for parents, teachers and board mebers on social software, sessions for teens and students, and more. What has been your success story with teaching responsible use of social technologies in your library, folks?
