Teaching Digital Reputations in Schools?

I found this article in the Globe and Mail today. It’s about the generational shift in technology and the social aspect of school – the author compares yearbooks to facebook. The article talks about how youth are posting (perhaps too much) information about themselves online.


This article made me think about emotional intelligence. Perhaps social media can assist in giving students an outlet or platform for expressing themselves and discussing their emotions? Is social media an appropriate place to discuss emotional intelligence?
