The Letter to Parents

I must say that I had my fingers crossed when I introduced the plan to use various social media platforms to my students and handed them a letter to take home to their parents.  My letter was telling parents that we would be using all of those “tools”, that they feared allowing their child to use.  The letter went home to 24 parents, and within a couple days I received my feedback, which for the most part was positive.  Students were coming back surprised, first because their parents were allowing them to use social media something they had to this point been not granted permission to use, and second, excited to find out what platform we would test out the water with first.  For a few students, their return after the weekend came with a few words of concern from their parents, most in regards to our potential use of Facebook.  A few phone calls and discussions later the concerns were address and all parents were on board with the plan.  I was super excited that the first hurdle was cleared and we were ready to move forward with the plan.  Twitter here we come!
