EduCon 2.0 Review
With Matt Montagne and Bill Knauer
January 30, 2008
This week we discussed the experiences of the in person and remote EduCon participant. A lively discussion with Matt Montagne, Tech Coordinator at the University School of Milwaukee, WI, and Bill Knauer, Director of Technology at Packer Collegiate School in Brooklyn, NY.
We discussed PBS's excellent newspiece "Growing Up Online" which investigated the lives of the first generation of kids to grow up with Internet access their entire lives. We brainstormed a show with kids as well as covered the pieces of the news story which we felt were critical.
We discussed the Independent School Educator Ning network with Fred Bartels and Demetri Orlando. What is a social network? How do we expand it? How do we bring the other 98% of teachers into the world of their students. A fun conversation.

We continued our conversation about appropriate boundries between teachers and students in social networks with students from Rye Country Day School and Hewitt School.
What are you experiences with Facebook, Twitter, or any other social network and your students? What boundries do you draw?
