There's no question that social media is changing the education environment in elementary and secondary schools, colleges, universities and private schools! What are the latest developments in privacy law related to social media? How should educational institutions handle incidents of cyber-bullying between students or cyber-defamation of teachers and professors by students? How do teachers/professors and educational institutions take advantage of the pedagogical opportunities presented by social media, given these challenges? Should social media used by students be regulated? What about the issues of freedom of expression and artistic licence? What will be the impact of the new Ontario College of Teachers' Practice Advisory on Electronic Communication and Social Media?
Panellists will discuss the latest law and describe the scope of the issues from the perspective of educators, school institutions and lawyers, with an emphasis on ways to manage the issues.
