Your Social Media Footprint for Educators
Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest and other social media tools provide us with many different methods to express ourselves, engage in professional development and connect with that great big world out there. At the same time our students play in this social online medium as well. Separating the professional from the personal can prove a challenge. In this workshop series we look at individual mediums and developing positive, professional social media presences while also exploring the security and privacy settings of these various tools.
