We, as adolescents, have to go where the district tells us and do what the district instructs on campus. By the way schools should have to cause kids literally do hurt themselves because of cyber-bullying!!! Honestly imagine if you were in highschool, witha boyfriend or girlfriend, your parents know, why does the school need to know? So, this is just the beginning of the discussion we will have. People, look at the facts. If a man was able to do that with the internet, what will happen when teachers monitor party posts and such. Schools are beginning to take a different approach by itself. There is much much more.
The reasons are provent school shooting and to keep kids safe. The reasons are cyber bulling is dangerous and safety comes first. Some of them are not perfect. What if the teachers are trying to kill us? Photo: The number of social media applications has vastly increased over the last few years. Now for the flip side of the coin with the disadvantages.
But as news stories reveal, the company that does the monitoring also finds out a lot of other information, like who might be getting high in class, or who might have broken the law when off campus. He was convicted of 52 murders. Schools should not monitor students social media. In the past few years, several tragic school shootings have happened. There is also the added benefit in that by encouraging and empowering students to come forward with concerns, schools have many more people on the lookout for trouble and are able to access much more potentially problematic information since even private profiles not accessible to a 3rd party monitoring company are visible to at least some students. Tumblr is blocked at our school because it is very easy for this to happen. It is written such that schools are held accountable for incidents stemming from bullying that could have been prevented with prior knowledge.
This supports my claim because: every one need to see what you post and see if you good. So there is every chance for the kid to get distracted by it. For now, rather than having software like this implemented in Montgomery County, school officials should encourage students to report any social media posts that could pose potential threats. Finally, parents should use this as an opportunity to encourage responsible use by telling their children that as they demonstrate safe and appropriate behaviors online over time, they will gradually earn more privacy. Does the school think it has a general roving commission to conduct surveillance on students outside of school? Should schools use social media in classrooms? I believe that each person's profiles online should be free of agency intervention and it should be prohibited by government agencies to monitor social media. The attack was discussed and threatened on social media. This is best accomplished, in my view, by actively participating in the online activities with them and about what they are posting and who they are interacting with.
I asked her to show it to me and I almost fell out of my chair at what I saw. Very often, what appears at first blush to be a great idea turns into a protracted and acrimonious legal battle. Now, why social media sites? Should You Monitor Your Students' Social Media Use? Alternatively, school districts can use the tool now used by the Glendale School District solely to prevent harm and not as a virtual Panopticon, which would be very disturbing to say the least. This is not to say that the new Geo Listening plan does not raise concerns. Thanks, Teri Hi Teri — the problem you point out is a really tough one, especially for schools.
According the news reports, that intervention was significant because two students in the district had committed suicide in the past two years. Here are some pros and cons of social media in the classroom and how it is being used for educational purposes. Should schools be allowed to do this? This is why schools should monitor students social medias. Sure, it seems weird that teachers look at your post. This greatly takes away from time that could be used for more productive things, other than social media. Social media accessibility can come in as a blessing in such circumstances.
And the word will spread, encouraging others to also do so. When schools have to pay 40000 dollars to make a student make her social accounts private, something is wrong with that idea. As universities have started paying close attention to the internet presence of prospective students, high schools have also begun cracking down, sometimes hiring outside companies to police social media posts for bullying or abusive language. The answer is that students are now using their phones and laptops as their primary means of communication. Most of them are too shy to participate directly in class activities. The system identified the student who posted the threat and took disciplinary action against him.
The second reason is safety comes first. I wonder where he got the extra 4 from. Many relationships have been compromised whether it is friendship, partnership or work related, in direct correlation to social media. This example, while extreme, gives students a reason to fear the loss of their basic rights to privacy that could arise from the type of monitoring present in Washington County. At a time when school budgets are shrinking and support staff are routinely being cut, are schools trying to cut corners by relying on a technological solution to a problem? It is very important that every student, not just the few that sign up for special projects or after school activities, but students who are involved in any various activities in school should attend meetings about teaching students how to respect each other. Don't you ever wonder if someone is watching you on the internet? School officials here insist they are most concerned about safety. Those reasons I got from debate.
