Blogging Parent Letter: Choose Your Privacy Levels
Nov 09, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Some discussion and a sample letter to parents allowing them to select the level of privacy for their child's blog. I like the way it introduces educational blogging to parents - "it's a way for your child to read more about subjects they have a genuine interest in; to learn more about that subject through reading about it; to write more - and better - in order to attract readers in the world" - and I like the way it asks people to make choices, rather than deciding for them.

Re: Blogging Parent Letter: Choose Your Privacy Levels

Very kind of you, Stephen. Now if it were only as easy to get the students themselves to see and pursue that vision. Working on it. (And all ears for any criticism or ideas, by the way.)
