I'm amazed, based on what a crappy site facebook is, how popular it really is.
It's even worse than myspace for usefulness.
Saddly, I'm on both. <shame>

Or.. how amazing would it be for students to actually BEHAVE like
professionals while they are ADULT students? Hmm?
I didn't think so. The technology isn't creating the risky
environments... the change of expectations and attitudes is.
I had one of my mentor teachers suggest that I avoid at all costs even
seeing profiles of the students I might be working with or seeing in
school (I'm student teaching at SBHS) because what I see there is VERY
applicable to what I'm required to report.
