We spend so much time worrying about how children are using social media when our staff could be a bigger problem.
71% of teachers use Facebook daily for personal use, followed by Google + (33 percent), Pinterest (32 percent), Instagram (27 percent) and Twitter (18 percent).
Schools expect teachers to teach a subject with limited knowledge. Like our students shouldn’t we be teaching staff how to use their own social media, which can then be translated to your school and students. It is time to change the way we deliver online safety and make it more meaningful with impact rather than an hour’s lesson here and there.
