I've been searching for and struggling with K12 school web publishing policies that grapple with the issues particular to Web 2.0 and student publication. I have found very little that has been helpful.
I think that it is important to lay out policies in clear terms beyond those found in typical AUPs and web publishing policies. Fine points such as moderation, access to content, acceptable content, and publication policies spanning a variety of media need be addressed. These media range from blogs, discussion forums, wikis, social bookmarking, social networking and more. Each has a unique set of issues.
I've been drafting a policy that is specific to my school that is incomplete largely because I could use some help and feedback.
I've decide to post a draft on a WordPress blog using CommentPress which allows you comment on any paragraph of the draft as you would comment on a blog post. I have just begun experimenting with CP as a collaboration tool. I find this tool interesting and I think some of you may too.
I invite you to view this draft
and make comments--here or on the CommentPress site.
