@BETT_show BETT

Hello and welcome to this week’s #BETTChat. Safer internet use: how can educators protect their professional identity and use social media?

@russellprue Russell Prue

Important subject today on #BETTChat E-Safety and Online Reputation, vital safeguarding for professionals, how do you get protection?

@Groupcall Groupcall

Check your privacy settings and stay in the know of all networking technologies #BETTChat

@russellprue Russell Prue

Firstly Social Media is culturally vital to young people, so how can educators connect with them safely #BETTChat

@russellprue Russell Prue

YR9 students from Saltash School have written an e-book for charity about Facebook Safety advice http://bit.ly/vsYMzF #BETTChat

@CapitaSIMS Capita SIMS

Do young people want educators to ‘connect’ with them in social media? Perhaps they have two accounts for things like Facebook #BETTChat

@russellprue Russell Prue

Our last BETT Radio show came for the UK Safer Internet Centre they offer FREE advice to teachers about Facebook issues on the Tel #BETTchat

@Mailfinder D Williams

I have just had a chat with a school about using student email addresses and how they setup students on their system safely. #BETTChat

@russellprue Russell Prue

@Mailfinder Do share that with the group today #BETTchat

@WhizzProf The Whizz Prof

@CapitaSIMS It’s dependent on the platform – FB might not be appropriate but a homework help forum, e.g, needs educators input #BETTchat

@Mailfinder D Williams

So as @CapitaSIMS suggest perhaps they could setup a second facebook/myspace account with the new email address. #BETTChat

@WhizzProf The Whizz Prof

@Mailfinder @CapitaSIMS Absolutely – like you have a separate work and personal account, students may want this privacy also? #BETTchat

@laurahiggins_ laura higgins

Sorry I’m late joining #BETTChat. So, where are we? Ok, social media & youngsters? Consider what you are trying to achieve by using SM

@CapitaSIMS Capita SIMS

Webinar on today in America about Social Media in Schools, Communicating and Connecting with Social Media http://bit.ly/tBZPRO #BETTChat

@russellprue Russell Prue

I also know that Stephen Heppell and Juliette Heppell have been working hard to produce http://www.cloudlearn.net/ great material #BETTChat

@GLI_Simon Simon Calderbank

Juliette and Stephen Heppell have some great well established tips http://www.heppell.net/facebook_in_school #BETTchat

@Mailfinder D Williams

Another option is to set up a free bulletin board system of which there are many, but I get the feeling they aren’t a ‘trendy’. #BETTChat

@laurahiggins_ laura higgins

#POSH is a helpline for professionals re reputation and protecting professional identity online. http://www.saferinternet.org.uk/helpline #BETTChat

@russellprue Russell Prue

@laurahiggins_ what typically do you hear as problems on the helpline from educators #BETTChat

@Mailfinder D Williams

I wonder how many educators actually feel comfortable communicating with students as it is not something they grew up with. #BETTChat

@russellprue Russell Prue

#BETTChat readers might also be interested in a show I did with Juliette Heppell about this AndertonTiger.com/Podcasts about her pupils

@laurahiggins_ laura higgins

#BETTChat Always keep on top of your digital footprint, if in doubt, ask someone to help you. Better to know what’s there & deal with it!

@laurahiggins_ laura higgins

Use the same advice we give to kids. Think before you post. #BETTChat

@laurahiggins_ laura higgins

@russellprue Allsorts! Personal photos being leaked online, to pupils faking facebook pages, or making allegations about Teachers #BETTChat

@russellprue Russell Prue

Serious chats in progress about protecting professionals from dangers on online presence #BETTchat like to hear from educators too

@laurahiggins_laura higgins

@russellprue some nice calls too, how to set up safe chat rooms & forums for kids, and checking policies are robust #BETTChat

@russdev russell dyas

I follow the thought of thinking would I want this on front of the newspaper #BETTchat

@Groupcall Groupcall

Would like to hear from our followers who are teachers – How can you protect your professional identity within Social media? Join #BETTChat

@simfin  Simfin

@russellprue social media is culturally vital to people of all ages and cultures. Is an opportunity not a threat #bettchat

@IrritableTechy IrritableTechy

Interesting #bettchat My thought. If you’re not prepared to say it in front of an assembly. Don’t say it online. Protect your profession.

@laurahiggins_laura higgins

@russdev Always a good one! I have my Mum’s best friend on my FB, always makes me self edit! 🙂 #BETTChat

@frackham_edu Fraser Rackham

True, but flipside is don’t be afraid to engage! RT @laurahiggins_: Use the same advice we give to kids. Think before you post. #BETTChat

@web2what James Green

@russdev if you are not happy to photocopy your profile page and hand it out in the street then you may have an issue #BETTchat

@russellprue Russell Prue

Can we realistically avoid using C21st ICT with young people? And as a CPD tool too #BETTChat

@Mailfinder D Williams

When teaching I addressed a Year 7 and my 6th Form groups very differently, but with a shared social media that becomes tricky. #BETTChat

@laurahiggins_ laura higgins

I agree @simfin, it is an opportunity for engagement we’ve never had before. Don’t be scared of it, learn how to use it properly #BETTChat

@IrritableTechy IrritableTechy

Privacy settings are a fallacy. As @simfin tells us. A friend of a friend (fof) is someone you DO NOT KNOW! #BETTChat

@frackham_edu Fraser Rackham

@CapitaSIMS also depends on platform. Can’t do 2 identities on Google+, for example. #bettchat

@russellprue Russell Prue

@frackham_edu #BETTChat excellent point about Google+ – one for Google me thinks two identities essential requirement #BETTChat

@frackham_edu Fraser Rackham

@Groupcall has to be some responsibility taken by platforms too. Facebook is a good example of how not to do it. #bettchat

@Mailfinder D Williams

@russellprue That was the solution I came up with and only used it with VI form and we all made new pages using the school email. #BETTChat

@frackham_edu Fraser Rackham

@russellprue I know you see the irony of asking that on Twitter 🙂 #bettchat

@frackham_edu Fraser Rackham

RT @IrritableTechy: Privacy settings are a fallacy. As @simfin tells us. A friend of a friend (fof) is someone you DO NOT KNOW! #BETTChat

@russellprue Russell Prue

Are confidence levels reflective of the number of contributions from educators this afternoon #BETTChat

@ClaireAshton Claire Ashton

@IrritableTechy How does your school use SM and advise teachers on how to use it? #BETTChat

@simfin  Simfin

Antisocial media by me http://bit.ly/uWv7My #bettchat

@laurahiggins_ laura higgins

@russellprue Sadly, I think so! #BETTChat

@Mailfinder D Williams

Another thought is that teachers probably won’t want to be engaging outside school, so when would they get the time? #BETTChat

@IrritableTechy IrritableTechy

@ClaireAshton Currently a handful of staff are using twitter on a trial basis. Our policy is “in development. Love to see others #BETTChat

@Mailfinder D Williams

Not every classroom has computers and I can imagine ICT lessons getting taken over with ‘but it’s for school sir’ comments. #BETTChat

@Groupcall Groupcall

Prehaps it is @irritabletechy. The platforms seem to be continually changing too. Who knows what privacy options will evolve. #BETTChat

@BETT_show BETT

Thanks for another great #BETTChat – fantastic to see so many of you join us today. Let us know your suggestions for next week’s topic.
