Last Sunday’s net @ nite podcast included an interview with the founder of Wikipedia Jimmy Wales. As we are now living in the world of the return of DOPA (or as some are calling it DOPA Jr. or the Son of DOPA) this interview provides some really good insights into the way online community works and the role wikis and Wikipedia play in education.
Listening to the podcast will provide you with ideas, quotes, and specific information on the positive ways social networking enhances teen lives. Make sure to listen to the podcast to expand your arsenal of information and tools you can use to educate colleagues, parents, peers, and local, state, and national government about social networking and teens.
Don’t forget you can find updates of what’s happening across the country and in Congress related to social networking legislation at Andy Carvin’s DOPA Watch Feed.
