Hi Martin, I enjoyed your fresh perspective on the extent to which teachers should monitor online activity. While most students would advocate for privacy, you made some great points on why schools should step in. In the end of the second paragraph you said, “However besides the research you also should know the means of the bully and why they might post harmful post.” I was really interested in your answer to why the bully may post harmful words or images but you never followed up with this statement.

This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
