Social Networking

Social networking is a great way to keep in touch, exchanging information and chatting with others but things can start to go wrong so easily. Some of the most common problems are:
  • young children independently accessing social networking sites
  • revealing too much personal information
  • not checking privacy setting and leaving profile unsecured
  • posting inappropriate , thoughtless, often angry or vindictive postings
  • posting online information about work or colleagues
Look at the BBC Webwise website for more information and use some of the links on this page to access more specific information to share at school and with parents.
 
For schools wishing to set up or review social networking provision we suggest you look at:
  • Twitter for Twitchy Teachers
  • Facebook Guide for Educators
  • Common Facebook issues for Schools
There is also a very useful Social Networking Guide for teachers, NQT and trainee teachers -here http://www.childnet.com/ufiles/Social-networking.pdf
