Why You Shouldn’t Stalk Your Kid Online

Why You Shouldn’t Stalk Your Kid Online | ESafety and Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it

A teacher should create a profile that is herself or himself as a teacher, on Facebook or wherever your cohort of kids are. Never go and friend a student on your own, but if a student friends you, accept. And if a student reaches out to you online, respond. If you see something concerning about a student on a social media account, approach him or her in school. Give your password to the principal, so it’s all transparent, and then be present.

Llandrillo Library's insight:
Researchers say a lot depends on how we use social media. High levels of “passive” Facebook use (observing status updates, photos and conversations of Facebook friends not directly related to us) is linked to higher levels of loneliness.

Llandrillo Library's insight:
Launched in London on 17 March 2016, by Rachel Rosen, the report surveyed teachers and young people aged between 13-20.

 Results show a generation of young people torn between positive feelings towards the internet (74.5% report that it makes them happy), yet an acknowledgement that there are areas they would tell friends to avoid.

 36% of young people who were surveyed admit they would suggest friends avoid Facebook if they were feeling worried or upset.
