Last I checked, these are among our Web 2.0 ed tech pundits who have weighed in about proposed federal legislation to block student access to social networking sites.
- Andy Carvin
- Chris Harris
- Tim Stahmer
- Will Richardson
- David Warlick
And others I’m sure I’ve missed.
Here is my challenge to each of you serious, influential, and well-meaning people. Please serve as a positive example by:
- Letting everyone know what professional organization(s) you belong to which will provide organized lobbying against such legislation. I belong to MEMO at the state level and am the legislative chair. I belong to ISTE at the federal level and serve on the board.
- Sharing the sample letter you will be writing to your House representatives explaining why such legislation is wrong. I am guessing most of us faithful readers already are in your camp. I am working on mine tonight and will post it tomorrow.
- Passing along any other actions readers might take to actually influence this process.
