Converting Fact Sheets to Infographics - eXtension Educational Technology Learning Network

While putting together a social media strategy for the new Live Smart Ohio blogsite, my colleagues at the Ohio State University and I realized that we couldn’t design a sleek new blog and expect our readers to engage with Family & Consumer Sciences fact sheets. Did we really want to put PDFs on a blogsite? No. Definitely not. Teachers, students and social media: Where is the line? A substitute teacher in New Hampshire chooses not to work at a school after being instructed to unfriend students on Facebook.

Teachers, students and social media: Where is the line?

A Wisconsin teacher asks his students to follow elected officials on Twitter and report back on what they tweet. These examples highlight the complicated nature of social media interactions between teachers and students: Some instructors want to use Facebook and Twitter as teaching tools, yet there is concern that appropriate boundaries are maintained. Carol Thebarge, a 79-year-old substitute teacher in Claremont, N.H., brought this issue to light recently when she was told by school officials to unfriend her more than 200 current students on Facebook. If she didn't, they said, she would no longer be called on to substitute. She announced Thursday (on Facebook, of course) that she would not comply. "I call my Facebook an extended classroom," Thebarge, who said she's worked as a substitute teacher for 35 years, told USA TODAY Network. Is there middle ground?

Cooperative Extension will celebrate it’s centennial in 2014. This is a fabulous opportunity to share our stories about the numerous problems we’ve solved that have helped California, the nation and the world, while discussing the new challenges that await us in a rapidly changing global society. Currently, many of you are hard at work to bring the best science to bear solving problems related to climate change, malnutrition, invasive pests & diseases, and youth development amongst many others, all vitally necessary to creating a healthy community. At the same time, millions of people are forgoing the hard work of data collection and analysis and simply setting up shop on the Internet hawking the worst possible ‘science’ as the answer to people’s problems. 72% of Online Adults are Social Networking Site Users. By Joanna Brenner and Aaron Smith Social Networking Sites The number of social networking site users continues to grow As of May 2013, almost three quarters (72%) of online U.S. adults use social networking sites, up from 67% in late 2012.

72% of Online Adults are Social Networking Site Users

When we first started asking about social networking sites in February 2005, just 8% of online adults said they used social networking sites. In addition to asking about general usage of social networking sites in our current survey, we included a stand-alone question about Twitter and found that 18% of online adults are now Twitter users. This is roughly double the 8% of online adults who used Twitter in November 2010, the first time we asked about Twitter as a stand-alone platform.

Yammer's Social Media Policy. Election Season Calls For Caution, Professionalism Among Military  Recently, Cpl. Jesse Thorsen, an Army reservist, took the podium at a rally for presidential candidate Ron Paul in Iowa – disregarding Defense Department Directive 1344.10, which restricts political activity by DoD personnel. (By Marine Corps News) When service members first don their uniforms and pick up their rifles, they do not set aside their citizenship.

They reaffirm it, vow to guard it and assume the responsibility to maintain the professionalism of their station. Exercising civic rights and upholding military obligations can be a balancing act for service members. While they are encouraged to participate in the political institutions they protect, they are also required to separate their political beliefs from the uniforms they wear. “There are some significant things military members can and can’t do differing from their civilian counterparts,” said 1st Lt. Guidance for appropriate political activities for military and DOD personnel can be found in DOD Directive 1344.10.
