Nonscholae.org - responsible net policy


James Farmer just pushed the Nonscholae.org website, which was born from the "learning to swim" discussion in the edublogosphere a few weeks back. From the site:

nonscholae.org is a site devoted to the responsible use of blogs, instant messaging and other social software in schools.

Non scholae sed vitae discimus
We learn, not for school, but for life - Seneca, Epistulae

We believe that these tools and resources should not be blocked or banned from schools. As educators, we should be familiarising learners with these technologies, supporting and facilitating their responsible use and equipping our students with the skills to keep them safe and savvy in the online world.

I'm hoping the obscure latin name doesn't throw some of the target audience. It's clever, but I had to check spelling on it 3 times as I wrote this post...
