Ethics....

For those of you who didn't come to Martini's for lunch, we had an interesting conversation that eventually led us to the topic of ethics and appropriate behavior. It was agreed that some inappropriate behavior on the Internet can be expected when kids are not properly supervised. One would hope, however, that students should understand what is and what is not acceptable and act in an appropriate manner whether they are under the scrutiny of a teacher or not. When we are part of a global network, it is important to abide by a consistent code of ethics.

I therefore feel that we, as educators, should teach internet "appropriateness". If we all took the time to do this, perhaps our division would not have a need for such a limiting proxy server as exists at the moment.

What is YOUR opinion?

BTW, wouldn't this discussion be a perfect topic for a blog...

Errr.... I guess that's just what I'm starting right here!
