2014 RFR Fall Conference "The Faces of Social Media"

October 29, 2014

Technology and social media use is everywhere and, whether these resources are used in the classroom or at home, the impact on the education environment can be staggering.  

Social Media & Individual Rights
Constitutional law informs key decisions involving social media and Karen L. Long will address the free speech rights of both employees and students, including limits on those rights. This presentation will guide administrators in understanding when to intervene and when to remain silent on social media commentary.
Social Media & Policies
Legislative paralegal Michelle D. Siegfried will outline key policy components in managing technology and social media use in schools.  This overview will equip administrators to review existing district documents and evaluate whether additional protections should be added.
Social Media & Criminal Activity
Former U.S. Assistant Attorney General and RFR lawyer Matthew P. Cyran will explore potential criminal problems associated with the use of technology and social media.  This session will summarize nefarious uses of these resources and offer tips to avoid misuse within schools.

Social Media & Open Records
School law attorney Bryan K. Drummond will focus on the often blurry area between personal and private electronic communications.  This talk will help administrators explore their own use of technology and social media and determine whether their communications are public or private.
