Social Media Guardian

Why

In the school house we are very reactionary in the social media world.  We find ourselves chasing all the time.  The “Social Media Guardians” are a way for us to be proactive.  With teen suicide, bullycides and daily negative social media interactions on the rise – we need the students help.

Format

  • Talk to group of students handpicked by the school
  • First build connections with group and within the group
  • Work with the students to develop skills that will keep them and those members of their social media networks safe
  • Help students recognize when social media interactions are potentially unsafe for themselves or others
  • Build trust between the students and leaders in the school
  • Go over the plan for students to share information anonymously with school officials
  • Go over the role of a social guardian
  • Agree on the importance of social guardians
