Helping students make distinctions
The distinction between a private you and a public profile is something that many of my students struggle with. Several Faccebook related issues spilled over to school this past year. Students and teachers can have productive conversations about how much should be shared, whom it should be shared with, and how to make those choices. Helping students negotiate social media by explicitly stating how we make those decisions can help them assemble their own "Thanksgiving dinner" guestlist.
