What would happen if social media were seen as a powerful tool rather than a threat to student learning?
Schools and districts around the country (USA) are starting to put social media policies and guidelines in place to support this learning while taking appropriate precautions against misuse.
Download this guide for the seven steps -- and a roundup of valuable resources -- you need to help safely bring social media into your school or classroom.
AUP for iPads : Posters http://bit.ly/YUyofN AUP for iPads : Posters
Are you using iPad with your younger grade students ?
If yes, have you provided them a with guideline sheet on the acceptable use of this device in the classroom ? I am thinking you already did but Sandy has another smart idea. Knowing that she went through a lot of shouting and headaches over the use of iPad with her elementary students, Sandy created an " acceptable Use Policy " poster and used it on her classroom rules board so students can refer back to it during the whole year.
Acceptable Use Policy For Classroom iPads http://bit.ly/19z3XCa A Printable Acceptable Use Policy For Classroom iPads
If you’ve got a 1:1 iPad classroom or have at least one iPad being used by students, then you need an acceptable use policy. What might that entail, you ask? Well I’m so pleased you ask! Basically, it’s an agreement by the user (students, teachers, admins, whoever) to handle the iPad with care and return it just like they found it. Simple as that.
Lucky for you, there’s a printable PDF available here and embedded below that enumerates the various ways someone should use the iPad. It is a pretty general acceptable use policy for iPads and seems (to me at least) that it’d be perfect for a K-12 classroom.

Social media is fast becoming as ubiquitous as the air we breathe. In recent months, many schools and districts around the country have taken steps to create social media policies and guidelines for their students and staff. In my work with several districts to draft these documents, I have seen many approaches that work well, and some that don't.

AUPs in Context pdf http://bit.ly/puqEY2 AUPs in Context
Although primarily a tool for schools
and other settings providing online services to children and young people, the key principles of the AUP can also be shared with parents and carers and provide a shared expectation of the behaviours children must adopt whenever, and wherever, they are using technology.
Effective AUPs will become increasingly important as a tool to promote safe and responsible behaviours in using technology both at school and in the home.
This document therefore aims to help schools and other providers of education and services to children and young people to develop effective AUPs within a framework of wider e-safety measures, within their local context.
World’s Simplest Online Safety Policy http://www.techlearning.com/article/Blogs/39012 World’s Simplest Online Safety Policy
By blocking students from the digital world, the jobs of administrators and educators are made easier, but if people became teachers, education leaders or parents because it was easy, they’ve selected the wrong profession.
While it is true that banning is an easy way out, doing so is short sighted and not visionary. It does not approach the innovative status that we hear so much about.

Acceptable Use Policies in Web 2.0 & Mobile Era
The Consortium for School Networking on Friday unveiled a guide for schools to follow when redrawing their Internet acceptable use policies to account for the proliferation of Web 2.0 technologies and mobile devices.
Information and communications technologies (ICT) policies in schools have two dimensions. One is to ensure that students are protected from pernicious materials on the Internet. The other is to enable student access to the extensive resources on the Internet for learning and teaching. While these two dimensions are not intrinsically in conflict, in actuality, such can become the case.
