I would like to hear about how K-12 is handling the conversations/inbox and chat features. I realize that digital citizenship is a critical component of instructional practice as we move into blended learning environments with opportunities for students to communicate and collaborate. Modeling, access and structured guidance to strategies for identifying and implementing positive digital citizenship will help reduce but not completely halt all inappropriate behavior. The inbox feature that allows students to communicate between one another when turned on, cannot currently be easily monitored. For this reason, we have recently decided to turn the student-to-student function and chat function off. How are you handling the communication features K-12?
