Educators and Social Media: Avoiding the Pitfalls

Thursday, April 25, 2019 - 1:00-2:00 pm PDT

While social media presents a host of opportunities for educators to connect with their students and to prepare students to be savvy digital citizens, it also requires educators to walk a fine line. How can they make the most of tools like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, while also upholding appropriate boundaries that protect the privacy and well-being of students?

In this edWebinar, Jamie Knowles, Senior Manager of Educator Professional Learning Programs at Common Sense Media, will share strategies for helping teachers use social media in a way that benefits their students, their school, and themselves. This presentation will be of interest to elementary through high school educators. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of the edWebinar.
