Teachers express concerns over the Facebook generation

Apparently, teachers do not think it is such a good idea to have Facebook and MySpace in the classroom.

In a study conducted by LM Research for ntl:Telewest, almost a quarter of teachers said they worried about the amount of personal information that students disclose online and their behaviour when using social networking sites.

 Downtime suspects it is not the kids’ information they are worried about. Web pages never go away. The last thing a teacher wants is someone looking up their old MySpace/Facebook page… student parties, sex, drugs and roll ‘n’ roll.
