Legal Implications of Social Media
Technologies such as texting (SMS), Facebook, YouTube, Tumbir, Instagram, Twitter, chat rooms, blogs and vlogs provide many options for increased communication and collaboration, but their use can also dramatically increase personal risk.  Social networking sites have become so popular and smart phones have become so pervasive that, in reality, enforcing a ban on social media use in schools is becoming impossible.  This session will provide critical strategies for technology professionals and educators on how schools are responding to student use and misuse of social media and the law focusing on what works, what doesn't and why.

 The Changing Nature of Communication
Being a leader in the 21st Century means going beyond e-mail and newsletters into the new digital world of communicating with parents and students.  Understanding that society today wants information in short and more frequent bursts is the first step in utilizing web tools that allow you to communicate more efficiently and effectively.  This session demonstrates, discusses and gets you started with the different ways school leaders can harness the power of the Internet, Web2.0, and Social Media to communicate with their school communities.  (Hands-on BYOD)
