EFF: Bloggers' FAQ: Student Blogging
This website discusses the legal issues about student blogging. There is currently in the USA significant debate about the rights of students when they are blogging following some schools banning students based on comments made in the blog. The same is happening in the business world where some employees have been sacked by their employers for their blog contents. Whilst specific to the USA, it is nevertheless helpful in thinking about student rights in Australia. It is important to stress to students that there blogs are public media and they will face consequences of abusive, racist or sexist remarks as well as comments which breach privacy.
