National Media Literacy Awareness Week:  National Media Literacy Awareness Week  is taking place across Canada and we’re going to take a look at some important considerations for all of us when we are using social or other forms of media. There is also an important link posted on our school site that will lead students, teachers and parents to more information.
Some applications of media usage deal with technology, the likes of Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, Flickr, Tumbler,Instagram and many more. The software may change but the issues that we should consider are typically the same. If we are aware of what to look for when working with social media on our computers, phones, tablets, etc., we can have a safer and more enjoyable online experience.
Today’s topic: Think before you click.
It can take only seconds to snap a photo and post it to the Internet, or to post a comment. But it can be nearly impossible to permanently delete that comment or photo once it’s posted, as it can then be downloaded or archived by others. This is why it’s so important for all of us to think twice about every piece of personal information before we post it to the Internet. We should only post things that we would be comfortable with the whole world seeing. We should tell our friends to ask for our permission before uploading and/or tagging a photo of us on their social networking profiles.  We should also do the same for them.
