THE DIGITAL YOU
Schools must become pro-active, not reactive, in making staff and teachers aware of the dangers of social media and technology use for their own sake and that of their students.
Preventing staff and teachers from posting inappropriate comments or photos online takes more than written policy and procedure. Stopping these posts before they occur requires building a culture of people who understand the risks and stop and think before they post. Properly training employees and bringing awareness to them is a necessary component in keeping them from making mistakes that will cause a major liability.
"We can’t stop staff and employees from being careless with sensitive information, but we can create a culture of employees who are aware of the risks involved in the use of social media."
• Recognize the purpose of Social Media from the school's perspective.
• Identify activities on social media that could be a social liability personally and to the school.
• Manage your online persona for personal and professional success.
• Identify the information on your social media page that puts you at risk of identity theft.
