    Banned Websites Awareness Day!

      I just finished reading an article on the tech&learning website and thought it would be a great discussion for this forum.  Their question is "Wed October 3rd is the American Association of School Librarians' (AASL) Banned Websites Awareness Day (#BWAD on Twitter), which provides policy makers, educators, parents, and students with an opportunity to talk about the impact of arbitrary filtering and overly restrictive policy in K-12 learning environments". 

      My question to you is two-fold.  First, what sites do you wish your students could have access to during the school day and why, and second, what can the K-12 community in the United States do to help the "powers that be" see the need to adopt the philosophy of "Monitor, don't block"!
