Please block

"What we’ve decided is that we will no longer use the web filter as a classroom management tool.  Blocking one distraction doesn’t solve the problem of students off task – it just encourages them to find another site to distract them.  Students off task is not a technology problem – it’s a behavior problem. "
from BudtheTeacher's Blog - this is worth a read.  We can never teach good choices if we block the choices (or try to).  It is also good to read the responses.
