Banned Websites Awareness Day: Educators Speak Up & Fight Censorship!
Educators, help us end school Internet censorship! Please take a few moments to share your thoughts! Thanks! ~Gwyneth Jones - The Daring Librarian.com
From the Banned Sites Site:
"Inspired by the American Library Association's Banned Books Week, (the last week of September), #bannedsites is a censorship awareness campaign designed to celebrate children's freedom to learn with participatory media in school. In 2011, it will be celebrated on September 28th. Teaching with social media shows students how to responsibly use those platforms for productivity and learning. Blocking access in schools denies kids the chance to practice sharing their knowledge with the real world in a supervised setting. Thank you!" - Michelle Luhtala
