Anyone got a legal weigh in?  An actual doc that has some guideline.  Not trying to be flip here but my students deal with these issues everyday, I would like some slander and liability stuff that is on the books to share with them about Digital Citizenship.

They are savvy and smart...  I would like to respect that and find what I can now, to help curb this kind stuff that really affects them!

Thanks for the help!

I think this brings up another issue that has not been discussed and that is protecting yourself and knowing who you are “friending”.  While I do not condone the invasion of privacy, doesn’t the Aide  bear a certain amount of personal responsibility for posting a picture that was NSFW, sharing it with a  ”frenemy”, and exposing herself to the scrutiny of her employer’s microscope?  I suspect there is more to this story than just a picture on facebook.

 

The teachable moment here is that this is a life lesson in digital citizenship.

It is kind of like having my boss ask for the key to my house. Sure they will go and look, they may even touch a few things...but it still leaves me feeling like my "space" has been invaded. If I invite people into my house, that is one thing; to have someone demand a key makes me feel very uncomfortable. And, what is a password but a virtual key to my "house"?

So it truly is Guilty until proven innocent nowadays..... There's so much
wrong with this incident. This is the bottom line though....If you give
institutions an inch, you will soon be looking at a mile. In other words,
if we have to give up our social sites passwords to keep our employment,
then what is next? Tracking chips to know where you've been? How about
having to sign a consent to be spied on at home form and then being made
to give your external IP so your company can watch you? Gotta draw a line
somewhere in my opinion.
