These days, there are many ways to share about and advocate for your art program. While some of these are more old school, like writing a blurb for the school newsletter, many use social media. Most likely, no one would balk at the idea of emailing a parent during the day, but what about posting to Facebook? Are there any established norms when it comes to posting to social media during the school day? Would you let your students upload a post to a classroom site during school? (Actually, that might be a great solution.) Assuming you DO have permission from your district, I made the flow chart below to help you decide whether it’s an appropriate time to do so or not! Enjoy!
What do you think? Is it ever appropriate to use social media during the school day?
What is your district’s policy on the issue? Do you agree with it?
