Our school board has recently switched to being very supportive for Facebook use for our school activities. I found this a little shocking as we have always been told to be very careful of our Facebook profiles and comments. Students names (first names only) and pictures have been posted on our schools facebook page throughout the past school year. I thought that this would be against FOIP protocols and that we would need a release from each student each time their name was mentioned. So I was worried when this transition took place. But the results have shocked me. For the first time, our parents are coming into our school informed about the school happenings. They can follow the page, and be notified when parent teacher interviews are occurring. Students are tagging themselves in the photos, and sharing the pages where they get recognition for their hard efforts. I have much different feelings now than I did before we started using Facebook.
