    April Meeting

    March 17th, 2010

    Save the date!!  The next iTeacher’s meeting will be held on Thursday, April 8th at 11:45 amin the Deay computer lab at Carnegie Hall (108).  Our April meeting will focus on the ethical dilemmas that face educators when using social networking sites.  Have you ever wondered how much information you, as a professional educator, should put on social networking sites?  Or if you should use social networking sites to get to know your students?  Are there certain standards and ethics that school administrators expect teachers to know?  If you have ever asked yourself these questions, you should attend the iTeachers meeting for April.  Our guest speaker will be Dr. Wiley from Topeka High School.  Dr. Wiley will attempt to answer some of these questions and more!  Don’t miss out on your opportunity to find out more about school policies on social networking sites!
