AASL Filtering Report is Now Available

According to results of a survey conducted by the American Association of School Libraries (AASL), the filtering of legitimate, educational websites and academically useful social networking tools continues to be an issue in most schools across the country.  An executive summary of the supplemental questions on filtering are included as a part of AASL’s longitudinal survey, School Libraries Count!    Read the four-page summary report on the AASL website and  consider taking a look at the banned websites part of the site too. Banned Websites Awareness Day seeks to promote an awareness of how overly restrictive filtering affects student learning at the very time that schools are encouraging the learning of 21st Century Learning Skills!
