From Facebook and Twitter to LinkedIn and You Tube, social media has become a successful medium that has altered the way in which we live, work, learn, shop and develop relationships. This course will focus on the abuses of social media by everyone from students to staff members and examine how they affect the classroom and the school building. Topics such as cyberbullying, sexting, communicating with wired individuals, social relationships, the hiring and firing of employees based on social profiles, and law and ethics will be explored. Educators will be immersed in theories and best practices to safeguard your organization from potential pitfalls and to implement sound policy in the classroom or building.
