Social media is a topic we’re often asked about by educators and schools.
This month we were asked by the Education Gazette to put together five tips for educators to help keep students safe online. Choosing only five is tricky, but we think we covered some of the big items for educators.
Being social media savvy is one of these. Feedback from young people is that they are less likely to listen to advice if the adult giving it isn’t using the space themselves. It can be difficult to keep up which is why we create advice to help parents and educators understand the platforms better – the latest being ‘A Parent’s Guide to Instagram’.
Five social media tips for educators
- Staying engaged
- Being social media savvy
- Discussing online safety in the classroom
- Talking about privacy protection
- Helping students make a plan
