I came across this piece in The Bismarck Tribune about how Century High School in North Dakota’s capital is easing up on its Internet restrictions.
The Bismarck school district is apparently reviewing its Internet filtering policies to allow appropriate uses of Web 2.0 tools, starting in high school.
When I wrote about Internet filtering recently, I found that many educators are pushing for less-restrictive policies in favor of more comprehensive lessons to educate students about the potential dangers on the Web.
Have you heard of other districts going this route?
