Here is some "qualitative data" on how social media impacts schools. Courtesy of ASCD SmartBrief.
The Pasco County, Fla., school district has gotten high praise from Twitter executives, who have called its social media efforts "#amazing." In the district, which has embraced social media, administrators and others use Twitter, YouTube, Facebook and other sites to communicate with students and others. The approach is a departure from that adopted by some neighboring districts, including one which largely has avoided social media on the advice of its attorneys.
