"I Gave up MySpace for Lent": New Teachers and Social Networking Sites
ARTICLE

Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy Volume 52, Number 3, ISSN 1081-3004

Abstract

This Digital Literacies column describes the dilemma many new teachers feel as their uses of social networking sites pose conflicts with institutional cautions regarding educators' participation in these kinds of online activities. Pre-service teachers discuss the challenges of marrying their own out-of-school literacies to mandated professional literacies. Reactions to mandates regarding social networking sites run the gamut from defiance to, in a few cases, compliance with outright bans on participation in social networking sites. (Contains 3 resources.)
