    [...] Well now, isn’t that a fun way to kick off a report on social networking amongst students? The NSBA has completed a study of 1277 9-17 year old students, 1039 parents and 250 district leaders who make the policies for their schools. The report was sent out to the media a week or two ago, but was just released officially today. Are bloggers media?

    Thank you for sharing your work online — especially your IRB documents. I appreciate the example and when I have some good examples of my own to share, I shall do likewise and put them online for others. The IRB paperwork is such a beast, so daunting, particularly when it comes to navigating it for technology projects.

    Your project sounds really intriguing. I hope, at this point, you’re progressing well. The Delphi method is an interesting approach. As a change management/leadership aficionado, I’m interested in the way you’ve combined leadership/business and constructivism/education to study a popular technology.

    Best wishes with your study!
