Over the past few weeks I have been working on a project for Edutopia and Facebook Education to develop a set of steps to follow when developing social media guidelines in your school or district. This all came about from my presentation at ASCD this year where I outlined how we created a document that promoted the use of social media by our teachers and our students but also gave tips on responsible use. (You can read what we created here.)
The goal of the document is to provide a means for anyone from a school or district to create an environment that allows for the use of social media for learning and communication. There are some simple, yet necessary steps that are important for the implementation of such guidelines.
I have embedded the document below for download. It has examples and samples of social media policies and additional resources to explore. You can also visit the extended post at Edutopia to read more.
What steps have you taken to create social media guidelines in your school or district? Did you do some similar? Something different? Leave some feedback below.
