The two owners of Amy's Baking Company Bakery Boutique & Bistro took over the restaurant's Facebook page last night to fight unruly commenters, and man, was it embarrassing.

This short (under 3 minutes) video created by CommonCraft provides an excellent overview of why students need to "think before" they click. Think abut using this as the 'hook' to begin a conversation about the digital image (footprint, tattoo) that each of us have online and ask your students to think about their image after they watch the video. Are there items that they may want to take down? Do they need to do some work to improve their digital image?

Online teachers learn to live with great online transparency.  It's wise to Google yourself, and become more aware of just how you 'look' on the Internet.


Professionals do this all the time.  But kids don't.  As teachers we often learn best by teaching a subject.  Are digital footprints someting likely to show up in your curriculum?

Powerful testimony about value congruency and a journey well traveled. Dennis hits it right we he states "If you find congruency, stay put. If not; change the culture of your workplace, or change your work place." Sage advice. 

 

Knowing your core values, and having the skill to assess the practiced values in your work environment, will result in a more significant and possitive difference in work attitudens and performance.

Owner Samy threatens diner after 90 min wait for pizza You're about to witness one of the biggest social media meltdowns and PR fails in the short recorded history of the Internet. The big question is was it a staged publicity stunt?


Five PR things Amy and Samy should do

If this wasn’t reality TV, here’s how you’d start on the road to rehabilitating their ravaged reputation:

  1. Make an unreserved apology on their Facebook page and any other social media.
  2. Run several local newspaper ads apologizing for their behavior.
  3. Don’t engage with trolls and spammers on their Facebook page. Shut down comments temporarily and explain your hope that you can “get back to business.”
  4. Go quiet in terms of social media for several weeks. Monitor comments.
  5. Deliver exceptional quality of food and service in order to re-earn the trust of past and future customers.

What do you think of the speaker's recommendation that we don't look to deeply into the past of those we love? Is the Electronic Tatoo a curse we all have to live with beyond forever? Or is awareness of our permanent online footprint enough to flip the technology and allow us to build an electronic reputation to be proud of?
Homeschool FL's curator insight, May 3, 2013 9:59 AM

Our children are growing up in a digital world that is completely foreign to how we grew up. We didn't have the Internet as a ubiquitous prescence in our lives. To make things worse, the landscape keeps changing on us, the parents, and the children. It is now, more than ever, crucial to teach our children how to be more than "street smart."

 

It used to be that having street smarts was helpful, because that way you could protect yourself from being taken advantage of. It carries an element of shrewdness, for one's own protection this is a good thing. Nowadays we need to apply that online.

This video is short, but it makes a powerful illustration. Juan Enriquez likens our online activity to an electronic tattoo, virtually permanent. Something we adults need to learn also, but moreover our children, as they grow up in the Internet jungle. And it is a jungle.

This reputation is built on three core values: generosity and the spirit of cooperation and collaboration. Dennis brings forth a new world spirit through the process of living & learning and believing in the best of other people. His guiding principles drive his reputation and his razor-sharp intellect and ego are simply tools to get the work done.

 

If anyone can help you understand the power and dynamics of LinkedIn and other social media and the phenomena of the doors being wide open, Dennis O'Connor is the one to do it.  A long tradition and legacy of transformative leadership.
