Each time NetSafe gets together with groups of teachers, there is invariably a discussion around Facebook and its use in the classroom. Put any group of educators together and you are likely to have a range of opinions from whole hearted support for the social network, to those who feel that it has no place inside a classroom.
This blog from Carol Brown on Mind/Shift is quite definitely in the happy to have it there camp.
