On the 12th Sep 2012, via Blackboard Collaborate Webinar, Nicky Kingston from the Teachers Council will be sharing a new website the Teacher's Council have created containing guidelines for teachers on ethical social media use and a range of resources including different scenarios for schools to explore. The webinar will provide educators with the chance to explore this new website and engage in discussion around the issues it raises.
You will be able to view a recording of the webinar here after the event, and Nicky will be available to answer your questions.
What a fabulous webinar! I thoroughly enjoyed the session. The learning scenarios and conversation starters look fabulous! We spend so much time discussing scenarios and consequences and actions with our learners, I think it is great that we will now have the support and resources to do this at staff level. I anticipate some rigorous discussion....
Thanks so much!
The session was well attended with fast and furious chat in the session and also in Twitter #ePLD.
"Bright and exciting...I think this is a fabulous resource - I am really looking forward to the reflections and discussions with the staff...great for linking the 'teaching' and the 'real' world"
"I like that you have left the resources open ended because what is right for one school/community may not be what is right for another..."
"Looking forward to planning some PD with our staff next term using the resources - important we have these conversations and perhaps co-create some guidelines for our place".
"Perfect for Beyond the Classroom dimension in eLPF".

A huge thank you to Nicky Kingston and Frances Lawrence for facilitating the sesson and kindly sharing their resources with us.
How might you use this resource in schools? What kinds of ethical dilemmas are teachers facing now?
Thanks to all the participants for your thoughtful discussion. I see this resource as a great springboard for staff to really think about how they use and conduct themselves when using social media. I look forward to more feedback once this website is up and running in early October.
