Tango for Teachers

Hi ... I thought Mr. D's metaphor on the "tango" was a fascinating way to showcase the way in which "partners" in education can help our students dance to the beat of todays music.

Without wanting to "dance" around issues, I invite bloggers to comment on how we can protect younger students in schools and classrooms from inappropriate blog and web sites and yet give older, more responsible students access to the world-wide community of learners that share ideas and resources through blogging.

Remember "to dance is to live ... to live is to dance."

I thought the "graduation date" part of a student's user name was an interesting way to get around some of the pitfalls of creating a proxy which is appropriate for kindergarten kids without blocking valuable information which can be used for S4 students.
