This chapter was boring, but had information in it that needed to be discussed maybe just to refresh our memories. I think copyright, fair use, and privacy is just common sense.
Cyberbullying seems silly, but probably does happen. But like you said, why don't you just turn off the computer?! I agree that teachers need to be aware of the issues in technology implementation, legal, social, and ethical issues.
Oh yeah, congratulations to you and your students for the nomination for 2110 Edublog Award Best Class Blog!!! We heard about it in the e-mail at school today. Awesome job! The teacher that I am with had to check it out and everyone else in the room! Way to go!
