How to Create Social Media Guidelines for Your School - Resources for your Spanish Classroom
Produced in collaboration with Facebook.
Social media is fast becoming as ubiquitous as the air we breathe. In recent months, many schools and districts around the country have taken steps to create social media policies and guidelines for their students and staff. In my work with several districts to draft these documents, I have seen many approaches that work well, and some that don't.
That said, there is no silver bullet for administrators; every school, district, and state has a different set of circumstances. With that in mind, here are some steps that will help you determine the best approach for your own community.
1. Examine Your School Culture
When setting out on this journey, it is important to understand the prevailing beliefs about social media in your community.
Questions for Reflection
- How are social media products currently being used by students? By teachers? By administrators and parents? How can they be leveraged for better communication?
- What are the fears around social media in school?
- Are there any "bright spots" where social media is already being used successfully?
Every year, Americans around the nation get together to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15th through October 15th. The contributions Hispanic Americans have made to the United States are endless and inspiring, and they have had a profound and positive impact on our county.
