In looking through my google reader this morning, I came across the following blog posting: How youths are using social media from J.D. Lasica. It includes a link to a report for “National School Boards Association: Creating and Connecting//Research and Guidelines on Online Social — and Educational — Networking.”
BTW: I found my way here from Steve Rubel’s – links for 2007-08-29.
For the Canadian perspective I was unable to find a similar paper or web site. If anyone out there is aware of one – please send me the link and I’ll post it here.
The following links did come up from the Government of Alberta – Education website:
Be Web Aware from the Media Awareness Network;
Tips on computer use from the Alberta Government Education ministry
