-For people who live abroad in boarding schools are affected by schools blocking these programmes. I live in Hong Kong and go to school in england. Facebook is my only link to the outside world and my friends back home. This is the same for many others

Yes

  • Social networking sites are a major distraction to students in classrooms with computers or wireless internet. Students that are on social networking sites in schools are distracted from real learning. They may be in a classroom during a lecture and have their laptop out, considered acceptable and useful for note-taking, but are instead browsing friends' profiles on a social networking site. Students can easily get away with this because their screens generally face away from the professor and lecturer. The temptation is apparently too great to resist, and it is unreasonable to expect that teachers can somehow regulate this problem effectively; they can't walk around the room constantly checking what is on students' screens. This problem is so widespread, so unresolvable by other means, and so unfortunate to quality education, that it is reasonable for schools to take the decisive step of blocking student access to these sites through school or classroom computers or over local area wireless networks in the classroom.

No

  • Social networking sites can be beneficial in the classroom for the exchange of information.
  • Social networking sites can be an interesting environment for class groups to meet.
  • Students should be taught responsible practices, instead of being blocked outright from these sites.
  • Social networking sites help people keep in touch. Social networking sites are a great way to keep in touch with relatives or friends currently residing far away.
