Well done!
I found my way here via a comment in this blog post: http://edorigami.edublogs.org/2010/03/12/digital-citizen-thinking-a...
Which says this:
From my perspective, being friends with students in an informal social medium like face book is fraught with dangers? Its like attending student parties.
On the contrary, I think we NEED to be there, we just need to do it in a way that is positive... which you do an excellent job conveying in the video.
Again, well done!

Fantastic! You are brilliant! I have also posted on my blog, and sent to my career ed staff to use with students!

I've used the video with all of my classes. Over the holiday break my 10th grade students were to work on their cleaning up or starting their educational footprints. They were then to reflect on the process and write a 6 word memoir and post it on googlewave. Some also posted on Slate.com.

A great video. One that needs to be seen by all staff working in schools.

Delvered an e-safety session with trainee teachers here in England last week and this was my opening video. It was amazing how many of them then went straight to the privacy settings on Facebook!! I am delivering an accredited e-safety awareness module.

How Maya Angelou will make you a better school leader

Maya Angelou was right; "people will never forget how you made them feel".When was the last time you read something and felt really worried or annoyed by it? Maybe it was a text, or an email? Perhaps a post on Facebook or a Tweet? Or even a blog? And reading it gave you an instant reaction. You might have felt angry, or frustrated, or thought to your self, “What a cheek”. You might even have laughed out loud. When did that last happened to you?It’s only wordsHow can written words evoke feelings…See More
