More MySpace Troubles

I recently worked with a group of teachers on the process of digital storytelling. One participant was a student teacher from a university in Illinois. At some point in the workshop while they were creating stories, we started talking about blogging, MySpace, etc. She said that several of her classmates had been denied student teaching positions at schools in Illinois as the result of the principals at those schools investigating their MySpace accounts and seeing the content posted at their sites.

Kids just don't get the digital record thing, and that they publish for everyone, not just their friends.

    I totally agree, I can't imagine hiring someone today without checking into www.MySpace , we need an education piece so big Hoover Dam would look small!
