A Look at Social Media Policies

This A Look at Social Media Policies lesson plan also includes:

Should school news publications use social media if their district is against the use of social media in school? Pupils ponder the policy, then examine their publication's plan in parts seven and eight of a 16-part Social Media Toolbox lesson series. Groups weigh the pros and cons of social media use versus their district's technology guidelines and revise their plans as needed.
