The major additions relate to social media and are not draconian like those announced in Queensland last year that Kelli wrote about with such eloquence and passion. There was also an ethics poster added to outline the philosophical underpinnings of the code.
The basic message re: social networks is do “not invite students into your personal network site, if it contains personal information or inappropriate comments or images”.
My personal system is that I do not add students to my Facebook while they are students. I usually see the kid at school who ‘added’ me and explain my personal policy. I have quite a few ex-students though, which is great!
Thoughts about the ‘code’?
What’s your policy?
