Examining Students’ Intended Image on Facebook: “What Were They Thinking?!”

Examining Students’ Intended Image on Facebook: “What Were They Thinking?!” | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it
The present article examines factors that influence why students post information on their social network profile which employers would find inappropriate. Results show that many students make a conscious attempt to portray a particular image and, as predicted, their intended image was related to whether they posted inappropriate information. Those who believed they portrayed a hardworking image were unlikely to post inappropriate information, whereas students who felt they portrayed an image that was sexually appealing, wild, or offensive were most likely to post such information. Limitations, implications for business education, and directions for future research are discussed.

Looking at them from the point of view of an employer, I cringe when I see some Facebook pages.

There is a new digital divide on the horizon. It is not based around who has devices and who does not, but instead the new digital divide will be based around students who know how to effectively find and curate information and those who do not.

The vocabulary worksheets are a great idea to exploit reading texts in a post-reading activity, encourage ownership of learning, self-study and a fantastic idea for differentiation.
