 Legal Issues of Social Media & Technology

             Presented by Darcy Kriha & Cassie Black

 

Explore the legal considerations regarding technology use by students and staff, both in and out of school.

Realize the complex legal issues surrounding student use of technology, including cyberbullying and other inappropriate uses of technology, as well as educator use of social media in both their personal and professional lives.
