Are you an institution of learning? Use policy creation, as an opportunity to take inventory of your students’ needs, how your teachers are already using social media, and how policy can support both responsibly.
Here are some elements to consider:
- Create parent opt-out forms that specifically address social media use.
- Establish baseline guidelines for protecting and respecting student privacy.
- Make social media use transparent to students.
- With any technology, attach social media use to clearly articulated goals for student learning.
