As I look to have multiple sites unblocked (i.e. YouTube) and integrate mobile devices into the classroom can anyone provide me with either examples of policies in place, lessons learned, and/or major points to consider. Thanks!

I just attended a three day social media workshop called Kip Camp. Kip Cam p is hosted by the Kiglinger Program at The Ohio State University. The facilitators shared a sample policy with the participants, but it's only a hard copy. I'll scan it when I get to school on Monday and send it to you (hopefully I'll remember by then!). In the mean time, you can tweet them at #kip camp and ask if they can send to you directly a sample policy. I hope this helps.

Be Great,

If you wouldn't mind sharing that with me, as well, that would be great. I'm working with my Principal to create some policies surrounding the use of and student publishing using social media, and am trying to gather as much concrete language as I can. It's the legality that keeps tripping us up, and we want to approach this so it's obviously safe, but also productive & useful for the students & staff.
