10 Things to Think About Before You Post




Over the years we've had a great educational partnership with our NYC friends at Flocabulary. I'm even a proud MC Educator or Flocabulary #HipHopEd Ambassador. See?



We've been using their Week in Rap news feature in our school since they landed on the hip hop education or #HipHopEd scene in 2008! Not familiar with them? Check, check, check, it out!

 
Murray Hill even earned a video shout out in 2013! W00t! (We were SO proud!)  
10 Things to Think About Before You Post video stands up to the test of time.  
It's just practical advice and one we like to play on our #MHTVNews at least once a year! So, when I heard that they were teaming up with the awesome Common Sense Media people, to put out a music video about Digital Citizenship, - I was SO there!  
Common Sense Media has added some handy extras! You can view the Video Discussion Guide download the Lyrics Poster, Top 10 List Poster, and Fill in Your Own Top 10 Poster. (Requires registration but it's FREE & I love Common Sense Media)
I've been on Twitter since 2009 (professionally - not personally) and Instagram since 2015, and I have an AMAZING & generous personal learning network of students, teachers, & followers - so being careful, upbeat, positive and mindful of what I post is important to me, too!  I don't use Facebook - we just never got along and I never warmed up to Snapchat. But it's not about what kind of social media or App you use but HOW you use it! I think you'll like the video - let me know in the comments!    We all want our kiddos & students to make good choices online! We share this video on our daily #MHTVNews show every year & so I just wanted to share it with you, too! You don't have to join Flocabulary to take advantage of this great video, poster, and discussion guide. But, I have gotten so much from my Teacher membership over the years and my students are always super engaged with their excellent content. 




And for Teachers & Librarians...here's this thought! And a blog post for you on this topic.
