School Counselor Facebook Guide Released

Thanks to Ian Quillen for this post on EdWeek’s Digital Education page.  We all had moments during the year that caused us to reflect on net-iquette, here’s a good checklist and link to resources regarding Facebook. [EF]

With the prevalence of Facebook as one of the dominant social networks among young users, and the growing public awareness of issues like cyberbullying, online privacy, and digital literacy, the American School Counselor Association has combined with iKeepSafe, an Internet safety advocacy group, to publish a guide to help school counselors make sense of the platform and its on-campus impact.

Dad Shoots Teen’s Laptop Over Facebook Post, Puts Video on YouTube

Well…this is one way for adults to leverage the power of YouTube. Still trying decide if this is a story appropriate to share with students… [EF]

The disgruntled teenage daughter of a tech-savvy, gun-toting father just got a very public lesson in respecting one’s elders.

“That right there is your laptop,” the father, named Tommy Jordan, says in a YouTube video while pointing a video camera at a computer laying in a patch of dirt and grass. “This right here is my .45,” he says, moving a pistol into the frame.

He cocks the weapon and shoots nine exploding hollow-point rounds into the laptop.

Okay, rewind.

This Beautiful Life – By Helen Schulman

This novel came out last summer, but many are just now getting around to reading it.  While the topic is timely and relevant, the story is hard-hitting and has adult themes. Here’s the link to the review

Helen Schulman’s latest novel tells the story of the Bergamots, a family of four whose expensive new Manhattan life comes crashing down when 15-year-old Jake forwards to a friend a sexually explicit video made for him, unsolicited, by a 13-year-old girl named Daisy Cavanaugh. As the video, forwarded again and again, goes viral, the tabloid media go bananas, linking Jake and Daisy in an ominous and humiliating celebrity. What can the future hold for unformed, vulnerable kids who bumble their way into the lowliest realm of the permanent record that is the Internet?
