Carol Knopes posted a message on the RTDNF High School Journalism Project Teacher Listserv earlier this week pointing people to RTDNA’s Social Media and Blogging Guidelines. It’s a really nice piece that is made to print and use in a classroom (or newsroom obviously) for one great lesson on ethics.
The guidelines are broken into three parts: Truth and Fairness, Accountability and Transparency, and Image and Reputation. Better yet, within each of those parts they give discussion topics and questions that could lead to great discussions with students.
Thanks to Carol for posting it to the Listserv and for Michael Hernandez for making sure it moved up on my priority list to peek at.
