  8. 8. Informed Insights• Student Perspective – more telling than we might think! “If you’re not on MySpace [ ___ ], you don’t exist.” - Skyler, 18, to her mom Source: Danah Boyd (http://www.danah.org/) – Social Media researcher at MS Research New England and Fellow at Harvard Law School’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society.• “Social media use has become so pervasive in the lives of American teens that having a presence on a social network site is almost synonymous with being online. Fully 95% of all teens ages 12-17 are now online and 80% of those online teens are users of social media sites. Many log on daily to their social network pages and these have become spaces where much of the social activity of teen life is echoed and amplified—in both good and bad ways.” • Source: Lenhart et al. (2011, Nov.). Pew Internet and American Life Report: Teens, Kindess and Cruelty on Social Network Sites

Reactions? Action steps?4 – Next, evaluate the information you find about your partner from these three perspectives (in other words, take on these personas and respond to what you find): a. a friend or colleague; b. a principal or school administrator, or an employer, or a college admissions officer; c. the parent of one of your students, or your parents or another relative5 – If time, repeat the process above focusing on one of your students – choose one student between the two of you and search about them online.Next, on to the issues...
