School district blog policies
Nora Carr wrote in eSchoolNews in February about the need for schools to have policies regarding employee blogs. I thought it was interesting that she cited Harvard Law School's policy as the model for public school districts since Paul Gillin, author of The New Influencers, notes that it may be the longest employee blogging policy he's come across. I suppose it may be too much to hope for a school district to adopt Microsoft's two-word policy: Be Smart.
For those of you who are looking for some model policies to guide your school system, Gillin points to a few examples that Charlene Li has posted on her wiki. If you know of any school employee blogging policies, drop the link in the comment area?
