Why You Shouldn’t Stalk Your Kid Online

Why You Shouldn’t Stalk Your Kid Online | Safety online | 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.

Tweens, teens adept at hiding internet activities from parents, McAfee report reveals | Safety online | Scoop.it
Most youngsters believe their parents are oblivious to their web activities, while some admit to making fake social media profiles and fudging browser histories to deceive tech-savvy ones, a new report shows.

15 Essential Netiquette Guidelines to Share with Your Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

15 Essential Netiquette Guidelines to Share with Your Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Safety online | Scoop.it

"Netiquette ( net + etiquette) is the code of proper conduct applied to virtual online spaces. This code is dictated by common sense rules ( manners ) and social conventions. Teaching students about netiquette is just as important as teaching them to use technology in their learning. Crafting a netiquette memo for your class and informing your students about the importance of these rules will definitely help you create an engaging, respectful, and meaningful learning environment where collaboration and diversity of opinions are celebrated."
