Managing Social Media Risks in Schools
Created to be an invaluable resource for school leaders, this white paper explores social media risks in the context of schools. It provides examples of potential risks with suggested responses and it explains why a social media policy alone is not enough to ensure schools are well placed to ensure staff and student safety and to manage the risks associated with social media.
