Syria trio 'not radicalised' at school

Syria trio 'not radicalised' at school | Teaching Social Networking | Scoop.it
There is no evidence that three girls thought to be going to Syria to join Islamic State were radicalised at Bethnal Green Academy, its principal says.
Neil Krasnoff's insight:

This clueless, but exclusive school in London is trying to deny any responsibility for the girls in their charge that ended up running away to join Islamic State against their parents wishes. School spokesman cites their strict blocking of Twitter and other Social Media as reason Bethal Green Academy did everything it could to prevent this emerging tragedy. 

 

I would argue that very policy of keeping social media out of school is to blame. If the school was more in tune with its students and using social media effectively instead of banning it, these girls would have had the chance of being noticed and dissuaded by people that knew and cared for them.

Neil Krasnoff's insight:

Anti-Cyberbullying education has the same pitfalls as drug prevention education. Preaching to teens is rarely effective. What's needed is more time for individual problem solving and reflection. It's not an answers that administrators want, but it's the truth!

It's worth having a look at Howard Rheingold's comment on this post where he mentions that he suggests to his students creating Twitter lists and then using Paper.li to create a briefing around the topic or network.  It's not something I've done but sounds like an effective way to curate #FOAMed resources insights to students and trainees. 

Stephen Dale's curator insight, October 28, 2014 10:59 AM

Twitter Lists are a great way of tracking people and conversations by theme or meme. Easy to set up, and easy to maintain. I've found them to be a very useful tool for the Curator's toolbox.

For most people who use Twitter for lifelong learning purposes, the 'Eureka' moment tends to be the day they understand how to put lists to good strategic use.
