I just read Elizabeth Kandel Englander’s article entitled, “Five Things Teachers Should Tell Students about Socializing Online. ” It’s posted on the Harvard Education Letter website.
It’s a quick, two page read, and I strongly suggest it for any parent who has a child entering the choppy waters of social media, but it also offers insight for the veteran parent.
There are five lessons that are Elizabeth shares and strongly encourages teachers to engage their students in conversation around them. I would list them for you, but haven’t received permission to do so…therefore you will have to read the article yourself. It’s worth it.
