Thanks so much for +Jordan Pedraza for sharing some #leydenpride
Loved this blog post from +Maja Bulka 

Let this be a call to all school leaders and educators to think about the benefits of allowing your students to use technology and social media as a tool to expand their learning and understanding of the world.

My favorite excerpts:

"These Twitter users were modern muckrakers, and their productive use of the social-media site made our situation at school look all the more immature. Where people were inciting revolution in other parts of the world, we were too busy abusing Twitter for the sole purpose of entertaining the ones around us. With simple entertainment comes inappropriate material. With inappropriate material come scowling administrators, and with scowling administrators come chromebook Twitter filters. Twitter was dead at our school, even though it was actively fueling a revolution elsewhere."

"The district wasn’t fighting for the implementation of a new government so much that it was fighting a war of redefining what it meant to be a part of our school - a definition that would mesh together exemplary digital citizenship and school pride. #Leydenpride did just that."

Kudos to  +Jason Markey for fostering open communication, digital citizenship, and engagement with #leydenpride !
