I am planning a blog post about internet filtering in schools. Before I write the actual article, I have set up this post to collect some comments from teachers about how well (or not!) filtering works in their school. When I was a teacher librarian in a high school library two years ago, it seemed that filtering was unpredictable and restrictive, but perhaps that has changed. I’m hoping you have ideas to share. I’d be most grateful for your help.
- A story about a time when a lesson was sabotaged because a link was blocked, or
- When a link was blocked that worked before.
- How you have been involved in the filtering process, such as being consulted about sites to block/unblock, or
- Were asked to serve on a committee to make these decisions.
- Whether or not you are clear on just how internet filtering works in your school or your school district as a whole.
- Whether or not (and why) we can do without internet filters.
- Your thoughts on intellectual freedom/internet filters/safety and protection of children.
- Any other ideas.
Your participation would be much appreciated.
