Schools Starting to Monitor Your Child’s Social Media Activity.
Sounds a little big brother I know but I think it’s in response to much of the bullying that is going on. According to a post in Mashable:
One California school district has decided to start monitoring not only what students do while they’re at school, but also what they do on social media while they’re at home.
The Glendale Unified School District in southern California signed an agreement in August with Geo Listening, a startup that searches social media for posts that might signal a potential problem. Geo Listening is capable of finding posts that might indicate things like depression, bullying and hate speech by students or others in the area, and bring them to the attention of school administrators who can determine the best next steps.
National Bullying Prevention Month
Lastly Social Media will definitely be a buzz in October prepping for National Bullying Prevention Month. Not too far from my girlfriend in Florida a young 12 year old girl jumped to her death due to bullying online. It’s time we end this and educate our children on how to love and treat others with respect. There are a lot of things I don’t agree with due to the fact that I’m a Christian. But I would never ever want to see a person harmed. It’s heartbreaking. So watch for that and read more on Mashable about National Bullying Prevention Month.
So that’s my little roundup today I hope you enjoyed it. More tips coming soon. Why don’t you leave a comment today and share what’s on your brain- I’d LOVE to hear from you.
