Video Feature: Protecting Students’ Privacy on Social Media

In my search for digital literacy resources to share, I came across a great resources. One of them was a video from a well known digital literacy advocacy group on methods teachers can assit in protecting students’ privacy on social media. The video is by Common Sense Education who describe their mission as:

Common Sense is the leading independent nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids thrive in a world of media and technology. We empower parents, teachers, and policymakers by providing unbiased information, trusted advice, and innovative tools to help them harness the power of media and technology as a positive force in all kids’ lives.

The video is short, and provides three quick easy tips which can have far reaching benefits. The first is knowing your school’s policy on social media. Is it allow? Is there a parent permission form? Are pictures allowed but not video? Is social media is allowed, but only if names or faces aren’t attached?  The second is to have separate accounts for professional and personal. This is very important as you don’t have to worry about posting something inappropriate or the students being exposed to something through other personal social media connections you might have. And the final tip is to protect the students’ confidentiality. Refrain from sharing names, faces, or other personal information.
