Blogging Challenge 2
When do you think it is appropriate for students to use real photos of themselves on their blogs and why?
I feel that it is inappropriate to put your photo on your blog if it is silly. Others could use the photo against you by adding it to Twitter or Facebook or something like that.
I have read online about cyber safety and found a few interesting things.
- http://www.safekids.com/ it mentions keeping a good online reputation by 'avoiding embarrassing photos, videos or postings'.
- The Education Department of Western Australia recommends not giving out personal information with a photo to keep privacy.
- Some schools have parents sign a contract that agrees to having, 'photos and videos of my child being used for purposes thought appropriate by the school on its Internet sites'
