In the Editorial: Examing Social Software in Teacher Education, numerous ideas were mentioned on uses of social software. What I found particularly of interest and concern, if that not only do we research and best practices on how to utilize these technologies, but student safety during their use. For many teachers, keeping up with all the technology or even catching up is is difficult. Students today easily utilize the technology and continue to forge ahead. It can be frustrating whe n sites are blocked at schools, but perhaps that is our window of time to get some of these things in place. And if you learn to utilize the technology well enough then you can screen what you do bring into the classroom.
