  14. 14. The immediate Response • Lock everything down! • 172 million Smartphone’s were sold last year. They will find a way. • What about what happens after 5 p.m. • Remember when email was scary • Write a policy that is focused on what people CAN’T do • Social media can’t work in public education like it does in the corporate world oxiem.com
