Re: policy on social media use during school hours

Hi Jessi -

We don't have a policy on using social media during school hours, but if we
did, I would recommend something along these lines:

"Social media, including but not limited to services such as Facebook,
MySpace, Linked-In, and Twitter are powerful learning, collaboration, and
communication tools and should be judiciously employed by all faculty and
staff in the pursuit of teaching excellence, professional development, the
promotion of school activities and events, staying current with educational
trends, and understanding of how youth use technology in their daily lives.=

Now, I know this is not what you are looking for, but rather than try to
regulate social media through policy, I suggest it be embraced and used to
its best potential.

Subject: policy on social media use during school hours

Hi All,
I'm sure this has come up before. I am wondering if anyone is willing to
share their school's written policy regarding faculty using social media
during work hours.
