6 Ways to Avoid Those Social Media Landmines

This article is planned to be published in the May issue of NEA Today Magazine  (sadly, without my nifty custom graphic) but it's already online! So YAY! I guess I can share it with you early!


I’ve been sharing on social media professionally for eight years now, and I have to admit, it can be kinda tricky. There is a goldmine of information out there for teachers, but also landmines that can be quite treacherous if not deftly avoided.  As educators, I passionately believe we should use social media to push the positive, celebrate student successes, share resources with our colleagues, and connect with parents and the community.  But how do we professionally use these tools without torturing ourselves over every Tweet, update, or Instagram pic? Easy! Try these six tips to share sensibly online.

Follow School District Policy 
Does your district have a technology and social media upolicy? If so, read it and follow it to the letter. I’m so proud that my district has had a “Responsible Use of Technology and Social Media Policy” since 2002 and has updated it every three years. Here’s one of the many parts that I agree with:  

“Any postings by employees will not reference, link or contain: Statements that could be viewed as malicious, obscene, threatening or intimidating; that disparage students, employees, parents or community members; or that could be viewed as harassment or bullying.” 


Well, duh! Seems obvious, right? But with some people, you HAVE to say that explicitly. Before you Tweet, post, or share—make sure you’re following the rules. I’m daring, but I’m not stupid, and I kinda love my job. (A LOT!)


Should You Follow Students? 

No matter your school policy, the easiest answer is no. Do not follow or “friend” students. Sure, we all want to be cool, connect with our kiddos, and be there for them in a crisis, but there are too many potential hazards in following their lives on social media. My pat answer to students who ask me to follow their private Twitter or Instagram accounts goes something like this: “Sorry, no can do. Until you graduate I’m a teacher, not a friend. After you graduate, then maybe I can become a friend and a mentor.”

But the answer to students who ask me to follow their public accounts is a definite maybe, depending on whether the account is open and transparent, they’re over 13 and out of my school, and that they asked me directly to follow them. The clear caveat that could turn a maybe into a yes is this: I would make sure to clearly and firmly tell them that “anything I see that you post that is the least bit inappropriate, bullying, uncivil, illegal, against our school policy or state law, I am ethically and professionally impelled to act upon, inform the authorities, and call your Mama! Yes, I would totally tell on you in a heartbeat for your own good and because I care.” Then I grin and say, "but someday, when you graduate, and are all grown up I'd be honored and pleased to follow you, sing your praises, and celebrate all of your future successes!"

I recently talked to my supervisor, Julie Alonso-Hughes, district coordinator of instructional technology and library media, about additional social media guidelines. She said, “It’s really all about common sense. If you saw suspicious behavior in the hallway, same rules apply, you would have to report it.” She also added a few handy hashtags to keep in mind: #youwouldntsaythattomyface, #thinkb4upost, #commonsense




Don’t Share the Private. Do Share the Personal (Maybe) 


On social media, it’s good to overshare the professional; under share the personal; and NEVER share the private. Because that’s just creepy! 


There’s a big difference between sharing what is personal versus sharing what is private. We all know the professional tone to take when we talk face-to-face with kids, parents, and the community, but sometimes with the buffer of a keyboard we lose proper perspective. What sounds funny in your head doesn’t always translate to hilarious in the written word. You can delete a Tweet or a post but they can always be captured…and BOOM! Landmine! Best to err on the side of professional. 

 
That’s not to say that I don’t occasionally post personal stuff on Twitter, Instagram, Scoopit, and Pinterest. I might share a Kindle quote from what I’m reading, a picture of my Mom’s perfect Thanksgiving turkey, or a selfie with a friend at an Ed Tech or Library conference. Sharing personal info shows you’re human, approachable, and authentic.
Do Share the Awesome!
I think the best way to use social media in school isn’t with kids but about kids. Without being preachy, we can be a role model for effective and ethical social media use to our kiddos and colleagues. Most of us have smartphones on us all the time, making it so easy to capture those exciting daily lessons, activities, projects, and general fun. With Instagram tied to my Twitter, I like to catch pictures of my students being awesome. From #Shelfies (kids posing with books they’ve checked out), science projects, robotics, school plays, impromptu dancing, lip dubs, to our Makerspace —this is an opportunity to connect with the community.  

Make sure to check your school policy about publishing the faces of kids. If that is a concern or a confusion, or if you have kids who are camera shy, consider taking dynamic pictures from behind, not showing their faces but their hands doing, making, writing, and creating.
  
You Are What You Like and Re-Tweet 

It may not seem fair, but you are what you and like, favorite, and share on social media. Sure, you may not have said it yourself, but a re-Tweet or “like” is an endorsement. Just ask any politician or public figure who has felt the heat for it. People can also see what you like or favorite. So, it’s best not to re-Tweet bad language or something controversial.  




Be Human, but Avoid Dinner Party Topics  

When it comes to controversial topics, think of social media like an enormous dinner party, taking place in public. Even if you have a disclaimer saying “opinions my own,” people will judge you (and your colleagues, your school, your district) for every touchy, snarky, hot-button personal opinion that you express. Keep personal topics for face to face conversations. 

Of course, using the term “Bless your heart” is always correct and ever so nuanced!  Believe me, I know that in these challenging and complicated political times and climes,  this is harder to pull off than ever. But as my Mama would say, "there is such a thing as an unspoken thought."  

I pray every night to never forget:
 

Bottom line: Social media is here to stay. It’s a powerful tool for educators that can transform your professional practice or blow up in your face. Before you get started, consider just lurking and listening for a while. Know this: You will never regret being kind. Don’t give toxic people, situations, or haters the time or energy…in life or on social media. Passion and positivity go a long way in almost all situations—and it’s a super start on social media!

Warning: Do NOT Read This Blog Post!

(This is an example of one of my Daring School Library Edublogss postings- written in the style of Lemony Snicket) 

Hello dear readers, this is Gwyneth Jones - your one and only ridiculously humble Daring Librarian here with dire 
As Sophia (the delightfully cheerful girl above) reported on MHTV News we must share something distasteful with you.  

Why? Because I recently awoke feeling a dreadful malaise and a lingering doleful fear about something I just uncovered. When I say "uncover" imagine turning over a mossy rock expecting cute wriggly earth worms and rolly polly pill bugs only to find a suspect piece of butterscotch candy wrapped in a soggy cellophane wrapper...well, read below for our news story. 

Oh, and don't be angry with me OR with the smiley Sophia...we HAD to give this news 
Here's the Script:  

We here at #MHTVNews usually like to share uplifting and heartwarming stories about young people who joyfully create amazing things and are rewarded for their Scientific, Literary, Artistic, and or Academic Achievements.
We’re here to give a warning that there is a pernicious, which means here deadly, and terrifying new series now available for streaming on
(And as a wry aside, may I add that this is surely a silly name for a terribly sinister author! I met him once back in 2004, at the Howard County Public Library - He signed a book for me and though I was introduced to him by one of my favourite students as the Evil Daring Librarian Ms. Jones - he said I was only 
As if!  [snit] /a)
 

Of course, we have all the books in this horrid series in the Murray Hill Daring School Library Media Center, we consider that fair warning so that you may read them, if you are so inclined, to be properly prepared. They are terrible books of horrible events and only appreciated by those who are slightly tetched in the heid (Scottish variety) or bloodthirsty.
Oh and Count Olaf? We’re keeping a weather eye on you sir! Be sure of that! No more sneaking around and hiding in my Library Office.

Find Count Olaf Hiding in my Office!

FETC, Flocabulary, & FREE RAW Pixels

Welcome back dear readers! And welcome to any who are here for the first time, I'm so glad you're here! I've got exciting news!
I'm super thrilled and honored to have been invited to be a Featured Speaker at this year's Future of Education Technology Conference! (OR #FETC!) I have a very busy schedule, speaking for 7+ hours with four presentations starting at 8am and finishing at 7:30 pm! Whew!  
I know, just like Elaine on Seinfeld I use WAY too many exclamation points. Sorry, that's kinda my jam. 

If you're going to the conference or just curious, visit my  Landing Wikispaces Page w/ MAPS, Wireless Passwords, my Speaking Schedule, Resources, & MORE!  This is my first time going and I've followed the resources for years on Twitter by following their hashtag. How brilliant of them to use the same hashtag all year long. No need to add a year since all Tweets are chronological anyway.



On My Presenting Style 
& Teaching Philosophy
But you'll have to see me in person for my unique (and humble!) brand of immature middle school humour, & corny jokes, amusing anecdotes, and bonus Ed Tech tips in person!  Although I do have a graphic version of my professional mission statement, in words here it is. 

My style of presenting and teaching (as you may have noticed on this blog) is daring innovation mixed with a fearless attitude of positivity and passion. All put forward with the idea that you don't have to try them ALL right now (new tech toy or teaching innovation) no one can! 

Oh, and you don't have to Marry IT! Just pick one thing & give it a whirl. You'll never get any guilt trips from me! Just lots of options, lesson ideas, free printables, graphics, posters, and practical suggestions for implementation into any classroom, subject area, or school library. And FUN. It's always gotta be fun!


I'm excited to be staying and presenting two sessions at the beautiful Hyatt Regency and SO looking forward to be having lunch with my Hip Hop Flocabulary & MC Educator pal Emily Gover @edtechjam
including dear friend the Digital Diva herself, Joquetta Johnson and new MC Educator friend Allison Schalk.


I'll be conducting a couple of longer workshops with presentations and featuring  hands-on group practice of lots of cool stuff!  In my presentations, I like to feature arresting images (like my buddy over and up there - OK, I'm slightly obsessed with Storm Troopers), deft graphic design, cartoon avatars, interactive activities, and engaging short videos and music clips. Just like in my library classroom, I like to mix it up baby! I readily confess, I have font lust and graphic desires.
Speaking about arresting images, one of my favorite new things is:

RAW Pixel is a collection of FREE stock Images with very liberal license use for blogs, presentations, school displays, and more! Combined with PicMonkey makes graphic image magic that ANYone can do!   I joined RAW Pixel last year and have now collected a whole gallery of great photo resources. (Some of my FREE Flickr Creative Commons photos are in there, too!) and I edit them with the awesome PicMonkey - which is also FREE ...did I mention FREE? 
(Psst. It's FREE but the Royale features are SO worth the extra $!)
When it comes to Images: Always Respect the photo license,  give attribution, & enjoy the gorgeous my friends! 

Special Thanks to:
My dear long time friend Luke Allen who believed in me and put my name forward to be invited to speak at FETC! I met Luke in 2010, the first year I was on the ISTE Board in Denver and he's been so kind & generous to me over the years. You rock, pirate dude! Arrr!
Also thanks to the vision, hard work, & inspiring leadership as FETC Program Chair Jennifer Womble I'm grateful to her for making this all happen and including my visit & appearance at this significant and powerful global education event! Thanks, Jen!
I'd also like to thank my super new Principal Mr. Rick Wilson, dear Assistant Principal, Mrs. Andrea Harmon...AND my Media & Tech Supervisors Melissa Grabill & Julie Alonso-Hughes for supporting me and for letting me attend! Love you guys!

So, if you see me at FETC, maybe even sporting a #SproutHead, please make sure to say HEY! I'd love to meet you in person! This is how we grow our PLN. Together. Online, in person, at conferences, and all year long on Twitter! (and Instagram, Scoopit, blogs, and in webinars) Thank you dear reader for sticking with me and I truly hope we can meet in person and become friends - SOON!
More later, I gotta now drive through the fog back home & start packing for FETC! Flip flops...are gonna be a must for Orlando!

Dr. King: a True Servant Leader


I was touched by this timeless Huffington Post article from Mr. James Perry, once mayoral candidate and the the Executive Director of the Greater New Orleans Fair Housing Action Center:
"Among the most important lessons I've learned from Dr. King is the example of servant leadership. A servant leader is one who offers an inclusive vision; listens carefully to others; persuades through reason; and heals divisions while building community.
It is easy to spot servant leaders. In a room where others are jockeying for attention, they are the ones listening to someone others might consider unimportant. When faced with a problem, they look for solutions that benefit everyone. When something goes wrong, they take the blame. When things go well, they share the credit. They tell everyone the same story, even when it is inconvenient or difficult. They know that they don't have all the answers, so they seek advice from others. They work hard and inspire others to do the same.
Martin Luther King, Jr. is an example of a servant leader. His life shows the extraordinary power of servant leadership to radically transform a nation. Our communities and our country need servant leadership more than ever. Deepening economic woes threaten the American dream for far too many working people. Racial divisions are embarrassingly persistent in too many aspects of our economic and social lives. Political despair is battering the uniquely American optimism that has made us a great nation.
There are precious few servant leaders in our current political environment. Many elected officials are more interested in personal power, individual legacy, and financial gain than in the sacrifice and commitment that servant leadership requires."
@JamesHPerry  
Powerful words. 
As educators, we have the honor to teach the next generation of servant leaders. It is our job, duty, and privilege to instill in them the passion to effect change and the empathy to think outside themselves. To inspire them to think not of the "me" but of the"we."

I passionately believe that we also must be a model for these values and these practices for our students. So that the kids can see that we, as teachers, administrators, and all staff, follow these values and give of ourselves for the betterment of others and the world. To take responsibility for our own actions and mistakes. We're human. We stumble, we fail, we make mistakes and we fall on our face. Show the kids that we pick ourselves up,
acknowledge our fails, apologize, and move on. How can we ask them to be accountable and take responsibility if we don't do that, too? I knew a teacher once (now, thankfully retired) who said he would NEVER apologize to a kid or a class even if he was wrong because he would lose "power." I heartily disagree! I think we are seen as more powerful when we say, "Wow, I was wrong about that, I'm so sorry!" Or try the classic "You were right and was wrong" [you can also add a pretend heart attack] to a kid or a class. But do we always remember or take that high road? Nope. 

   
It's OK To Make Mistakes! 
I do it all the time!  

Case in point. This morning, I was a blockhead and messed up part of our daily #MHTVNews program by forgetting to queue up and show an inspiring video (embedded above) that our Principal Mr. Wilson shared with us last Sunday for today's Friday show. After the show, when he asked me about why it wasn't shown, I drew a blank for a few seconds then I totally threw Mr. Dunbar under the bus ('cause it was his show today & he forgot, too!) I was mortified! Is it just old age? GAH! How did I, or we, forget that!? (See? how humans try to make excuses and push the blame around?)
But Mr. Wilson, was SO kind and understanding, and said we could show it on Tuesday. Whew! Sorry Mr. Wilson! Sorry Mr. Dunbar! It's on me! It was my fault! See? Even when we know it's the right thing to do, or forget, taking responsibility for a gaffe is difficult. Especially with a boss (or a parent!) It's a lifelong struggle to be a good person and do the right thing! But it's SO worth it! Let's share that with our kiddos and admit our occasional (or, in my case, daily) foibles and move on, lesson learned. Again. 



Model Charity and Good Works  

Our students should also see us as being charitable with our community, helping others, giving of time, effort, or funds to support those that need it. Not in a flashy or "look at me" kind of way, but just to help get things done because it's the right and good thing to do.  

Over the years I've seen our students rally to raise funds for the Hurricane Katrina victims, Haiti relief, and yearly for crisis intervention in our community by supporting Grassroots of Howard County. I am SO proud of our kiddos, we've done well...but we can always do better!


 
This is why I posted the words from page 333 of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secret on our library wall:

"It is our choices...that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities"
~ Albus Dumbledore

Let's be inspired by the leadership of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr not just on his birthday - but every day - throughout the year!

More inspiring words on responsibility:
“Man must cease attributing his problems to his environment, and learn again to exercise his will – his personal responsibility.” ~ Albert Einstein
“It is a painful thing to look at your own trouble and know that you yourself and no one else has made it.” ~ Sophocles
“A sign of wisdom and maturity is when you come to terms with the realization that your decisions cause your rewards and consequences. You are responsible for your life, and your ultimate success depends on the choices you make.” ~ Denis Waitley
from 7 Timeless Thoughts on Taking Responsibility for Your Life

Full disclosure: I've been writing about this since 2010. First, in my old school blog, then my Edublog, then here.  Why? Because, it's an ongoing challenge for change, growth, learning, and leadership. I pray every day to be a better person, daughter, teacher, and leader to my kiddos. It....the journey and the challenge,  never ends, and that's pretty amazing. Blessings to you all.

1. Flipagram 

With Vine going away I really needed something to combine video, filters, drawing, still pics, and music all together and I found that in Flipagram!  Easy to learn & upload to Instagram with a not too obnoxious watermark. 

Tech Tip: It's easier to create the video and pictures first, THEN bring them into Flipagram. Also, make sure all the still pics and/ or the videos are shot either landscape or portrait, mixing them up looks super awkward or sideways.  Read more about Flipagram: Oh Baby, Please Don't Go! including how to embed.

PS. I paid the $1.99 to remove the insta Watermark. There are also more in-app features. Haven't gone there, yet. But tempting! 



3. Pic Stitch
 If you enjoy making collages of your photos and applying cool effects while you do it, Pic Stitch just might just float your boat. It's available FREE for iOS on the App Store. There is a pro version, but try the FREE first! 
What they're sayin: "Best rated &  One of the Top 7 photo apps of ALL TIME according to Mashable"



4. Frame Swagg

BONUS: InstaSize 
I haven't had time to play with this myself, but in my research for this post, it came highly recommended! Do you use it?
"Easily create a designer photo collage from your pics then send it to Instagram.  Quickly combine your photos into your choice of frame layouts and send to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and more, right from your iPhone."

What they're sayin: "With over 200 million downloads, next generation premium filters, and advanced editing tools, InstaSize is the #1 must have editor app for anyone who creates pictures, collages, or videos."

Always Be Thankful For Thanks!

Gratitude means thankfulness, counting your blessings, noticing simple pleasures, and acknowledging everything that you receive.
Because this is the time of the year when I reflect on being thankful, I'd like to share a simple thing you can do that will help you get through the hard times in teaching. As with any profession, there are awesome days and there are difficult days. During those down days, it's good to have something to remind you why we do this thing called teaching, librarianship, & education. 

It's Handy to Keep The Thanks Handy
I still love a manila folder!  I keep the thank you notes from kiddos in a folder in my desk and it's labeled, Stuff from KIDS. But I also found it helpful to take a digital picture of the Thank you notes. too! Just in case of age, fire, zombies, you know....the usual. And to be able to look at them anytime I needed an emotional pick-me-up. That folder, on my Flickr gallery is called...Happy

And Then BuzzFeed Found It


So, how cool is that? 
11 Ways To Thank A Teacher 
(Without Using An Apple) 
BuzzFeed musta been searching around the Flickr Creative Commons and found my Happy Note and used it in an article

Happy Emails
This whole topic of being grateful and thankful came back to my thoughts recently because of a wonderful email I got from my outstanding neighborhood Teen's Instructor, Sarah Cooke from our Lovely Savage branch Howard County Public Library

WOW! This was so out of the blue unexpectedly Squee-worthy that I forwarded it to my Admin, my Media & Tech Supervisors,  and my Mom! 

Srsly, when you get something this important, this personally and professionally meaningful, don't be shy & humble, share it! Because this means as much or even more to me than a magazine or blog award! 

Screenshot Those Happy Tweets!
Also, when you get a Happy Tweet, screenshot and save it! 


When a Former Student Becomes a Teacher
Another amazing thing, is having your former students become teachers and contact you later. That is the BEST! 

Above is a Tweet that made my eyes leak a bit and brought a big smile to my face! I taught the lovely and smart Erin for years in Guilford Elementary school (my first job!) then later in Middle School (her mom was our Admin secretary) and I got to see her grow up. Now she's a teacher and Tweeting! Does it get any better?
UPDATE: I DM'd her on Twitter about this post and found out that she's left teaching and going back to school for Cyber Forensics! I told her that All I have EVER wanted for her was to be happy & fulfilled. And that I will always be unconditionally proud of her no matter the position or profession. Either way, I was so lucky to have watched her grow up! 


Erin's brother, Peter, is also a teacher in my district and the poor guy had me as his Librarian for 8 years! Elem AND Middle!
Sophia Berruz, I also taught for 5 years in Elementary School and is now a Technology teacher in my school district! Like Erin, Peter, and Ashleigh, she was one of those bright, whip-smart, unique students who are always remembered fondly.  She is basically Amazing! 

Hearing a kid, (now a grownup!) who you taught say that you helped inspire them to become a teacher? Does it get better than that?
Ashleigh is another amazing student, and a former MHTV producer, who got in touch with me via Twitter and now she's a Special Ed teacher in Montgomery County!  I'm so proud of her! After she Tweeted me, I found her 8th grade school picture that I had kept for 14 years, took a pic of it, and made the graphic above. She was so thrilled and surprised that I still had it. Of course I did, because it makes me Happy!

When you get a nice message on YouTube - screenshot that, too!

Basically, all those wonderful scribbled notes, letters, presents,
cards, Tweets, comments online, and emails - all which are fleeting and splendid, could be forgotten if you don't save them. I know this is a simple idea and one that you may have already thought of, but I want to encourage you to expand it, re-visit it, and celebrate it.  I'm also risking sounding exceedingly self-congratulatory, but when it comes to thanks from kids and colleagues, this is not a time to be humble. Save them, savor them, and share them!

Consider for your future professional happiness - to always be thankful for the Thanks you get from your kiddos! And don't be shy sharing them with a principal, and your Mom & Dad. Consider also sharing this simple idea with new teachers...or anyone who needs a pick me up.  Because some days will be daunting, it's remembering the kids whose lives you touched that will help you keep going! Remembering those days that are triumphant and thrilling that will give you the energy to smile and keep going. Why? 'Cause we have the BEST job in the world! 


Being compared to Miss Frizzle on Instagram ain't so bad, either! LOL
-----
Now It's Your Turn!
What was the best Thank You that you ever received? 
What do you do to keep your spirits up during times that we're testing and tested? Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments!

PS. Thanks to YOU!
Before I say goodbye for now and click UPDATE: Let me take time to thank you dear reader!  I am also very grateful and humbled by your readership. In the early days of my blogging, really for years and years,  I was writing to seemingly the aethernets, to the air,....and now anyone who visits and spends their valuable time here is truly appreciated.  Thank you.

Have a great week friends!
