Laws - can you help?

    Ways teachers maintain professional levels may include
    thinking about uses of social networking including Facebook - what are your privacy settings? what photos are you putting up? being friends with parents? being friends with ex-students? appropriate status? Most/ many LEA's make being friends with students a disiplinary offence usnder safeguarding (stidents under 13 shouldn't be on Facebook but many are).
    Storing photos/videos of children on a home computer or on a school computer that is taken home.
    Using a school e-mail for inappropiate personal e-mails.
    Leaving school computer left on/ without password protection.
    Adhering to acceptable use policies.
    Not showing film extracts that are not of the correct certificate e.g. anything shown in primary school must be a U even though children may see PG (or higher ratings) at home.
    It is worth looking at the Thinkuknow website that has a parents/ teachers section that may help you.
    As to how you write the essay I'm not sure.

    Also just thought of teacher's use of mobile phones in school, both for calls and texts and using the camera.
