Why children need social media lessons

Why children need social media lessons | Social Networking for Educators & Information Professionals | Scoop.it
Employers now routinely “screen” applicants’ online profiles before deciding to hire candidates. So for young people, who have grown up with social media and a “life online”, this can mean their childhood activity could influence a future employer’s recruitment decision.

This is why I keep harping on educators to join Twitter--it's function let's it occupy a different ecological niche than Facebook.  This function is towards professional and personal interests, and not based on who you already know.  In other words, you can absolutely be a professional on Twitter and get a professional network that will help facilitate your growth.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, April 12, 2013 1:33 PM

Years ago the idea of inviting people from around the world into your classroom seemed far-fetched and unrealistic.  Here we see the Former Prime Minister of Australia (and still a foreign policy expert on East Asia) Kevin Rudd skyping with the Plaid Avenger's World Regions geography class at Virginia Tech (you can start 14 minutes into the feed).  This is a great to discuss China, North Korea and Australia, but is a perfect example of social media and educational technologies to enhance the classroom experience and improve the learning.

Sebastián Vásquez's curator insight, September 25, 2016 4:39 PM
Raising awareness about the importance of digital reputation management might save us of making mistakes that could put our lives (or any field) at risk. An image, a post or a comment could end up being a disaster for our professional fields if they are not along with social conventions about social behaviours. In additon, as social networks allow people to get a fast and massive access to information, we need to pay closer attention to the kind of content we publish since these spaces, nowadays, can even play the role of a resume for a job interview (as Scoop.it slogan says, "You are the content you publish"). My suggestion, then, could be to have our several social domains in separate virtual spaces instead of migled into only one, or limiting our virtual spaces to determined or previously set objectives.
