We learn, not for school, but for life

James Farmer's blog service for schools was blocked by the censors a while back. In the comments to the post he wrote about it a grassroots movement started to take shape. Here it is...

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.

It's just been published so the content is a little lean, but the movement is growing. If you agree with the statement I highlighted above lend your support at nonscholae.org.
