For public employees, including public school teachers and staffers, social media represents special challenges, special opportunities and special risks. Accessibility, information-sharing and gauging public interest are easier and more convenient than ever before. As are the opportunities to criticize, organize opposition and spread misinformation. And when a crisis hits, it will play out on social media. This Coffee Chat helps participants understand the influence of social media – and how it’s only going to grow. Best practices for public school employees on private social media pages. And how we can all help limit the spread of fake news.
