While social media presents a host of opportunities for educators to connect with their students and to prepare students to be savvy digital citizens, it also requires educators to walk a fine line. How can they make the most of tools like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, while also upholding appropriate boundaries that protect the privacy and well-being of students?
In this edWebinar, Jamie Knowles, Senior Manager of Educator Professional Learning Programs at Common Sense Media, shares strategies for helping teachers use social media in a way that benefits their students, their school, and themselves. This recorded presentation will be of interest to elementary through high school educators.
