Solon Schools use Social Networking Sites as Tools

Social media in schools has been a hot topic lately.  Some schools and states are blocking sites and discouraging teachers and students to interact online.  However, our school embraces social media as a teaching tool and we plan to revise our policy to encourage that interaction.  It takes the classroom outside the "four walls" of the building.  Thanks to KCRG news for running the story and highlighting the progressive practices at Solon CSD.   

If you have questions, concerns, or comments, I encourage you to leave your thoughts below.

  1. Love that you guys are leveraging the things that students will use no matter what instead of being against it all.

    Would love your thoughts on this video. I find it intriguing. I have no association with the video or the student in it, but just think it's thought provoking.
