Whilst ‘patching’ up my ECA, I’m realising how SNS are entrenched in the lives of the majority of students. On the other hand schools (not just in Malta) tend to block access to SNS. What does this mean? That SNS are put in the same category of online gaming, porn and other time wasting online addictions?

I believe that this blockage is due to the lack of credibility that SNS have with older generations, therefore with teachers….We cannot control their usage, therefore we block them. Surely its the easiest way out, but is it the best solution ?
