‘I am strongly supportive of teachers having access to social networking so they can use worthwhile educational sites such as Facebook and particularly YouTube,” he said. ”Teachers will be able to teach their students about digital citizenship so that students will be responsible users themselves of social networking sites at home.’

Teach them to be responsible Digital Citizens where there is some guidance and supervision instead of blocking and filtering.

Great to see that the tide of blocking and filtering is slowly turning.

In case you didn’t know, SnipSnip.it is an easy way to share your favorite parts of videos you like.

Here at SnipSnip, we believe that there are two kinds of people in this world… The kind that just snip videos and the kind that do more with those snips. If you fall into the second category, then you’re in luck. Soon, SnipSnip will allow you to do more with your snips.

Until then, snip on!

Excellent idea! What a great tool for educators who are integrating YouTube videos into their instruction – too bad it only works if YouTube is not filtered in the district.

I wish that this site would go one step further and allow you to download your snips – but I guess that there may be too many copyright implications with that. Maybe they are hinting at this feature above???
