General Description

Teenagers are among the most prolific users of Social Media, with some statistics suggesting that up to 95 per cent of teens with access to the Internet are using one or more forms of social media. Like or loathe it, there is no escaping that social media is intrinsic to the teenage life, so the natural progression is that to include the use of social media into Curriculum.
Just as we teach students about social values, personal and community safety, and how to prepare for the world outside of school, it’s increasingly vital that we teach students how to use social media positively, respectfully and safely.
This course explores the ‘do’s and don’ts’ of Social Media, including the negatives and positives of using Social Media. You will learn about how to create a socially connected classroom; how to teach your students to be respectful of each other online; how to teach students to protect their online identity and reputation; how to ward off cyber bullying; and how to build an online Curriculum Vitae that can set your students up for future employment.
By taking this course, you will be better prepared to support your student’s online activities so that they will be protected, safe and prepared. You will learn to be a mentor and role model who fosters positive and appropriate online experiences that set’s your students up for the future.
