"Unlike traditional forms of communication such as snail mail and press releases, I can provide updates in real time as events happen, on Twitter and in Facebook. Since society as a whole is actively using social media, it only makes sense to connect with my community through these means." Possible Use Cases
1. Celebrate your school's extracurricular accomplishments
2. Share links, videos, and resources connected to learning
3. Promote school functions like parent nights and performances Best Practices for Using Social Media in the Schools Don't share personal information with students
Don't connect to student personal accounts
Work with the school district when register district-affiliated sites
Don't post personal information about students.
Don't critize district policies or curriculum. Helpful Social Media Tools for Educators Micro-blogging assignments FourSquare attendance Tangible Curation "The Internet is not going away. We need to do everything we can to make it safe and really a wonderful place for children." "Being literate in [this age] means being digitally literate." The American Library Association encourages schools and libraries to think twice before keeping kids off social media, saying such prohibition "does not teach safe behavior and leaves youth without the necessary knowledge and skills to protect their privacy or engage in responsible speech." Their policy statement on the topic says that instead of restricting access, librarians and teachers "should educate minors to participate responsibly, ethically and safely." Possible Use Cases CiteMe. This Facebook app provides properly formatted citations according to APA, Chicago, Harvard, MLA, or Turabian.
