What a brilliant video, thx for sharing. Hope you don't mind if I post it on my blog. I also think it's perfect for showing students.

Thanks for sharing your work, Steve. This is perfect for our teachers as well as our students!

Anyone that would like the full/HD version of this, it's a 12MB mp4. Just shoot me email at . Glad you all are spreading this around- this info is too important not to share!

Lisa, I would like to show it to my middle schoolers this week. Steve, is it in another location where I can make it full screen? If not, I will do it from here.

Thanks for your work!

Very cool, I am actually presenting pretty much the very same information to undergrads this Thursday.
Comment by Lisa Cross on November 14, 2009 at 3:13pm
This should be shown to all students in middle schools.

I'd like to use it also. I do alot of PD with teachers in my district. Our focus this year is on the Digital Citizen. This will help them understand the positive nature of social networking.

Hey Steve,

Great job. I'm sending an email to ask if I can use your video if I properly cite it.
I created an Welcome Back animoto at the beginning of the year with a facebook photo of every student in each class. (Their own profile picture-easily copied and pasted) They were shocked, but happy to be included. It launched us into a wonderful discussion of what one can do with social media. Good and evil. Our college counselor has quoted 25% as a statistic for how many colleges are also checking social media prior to awarding scholarships and admission.

Love this! I'm going to show it to my students to really get them thinking about what they do online!

Very good and valid points, and great that it ends on a positive note.
