Once thought of as a fad, Social Media is now a pervasive facet of our society. From entertainment and connectivity to education and crime, our reliance on social networking is at an all-time high. This session will focus on the past, present, and future of social media and how social media may be used to commit and prevent crime in schools. Attendees will learn about contemporary social networking sites, tips and tools for teaching communities about social media, and will feature hands-on demonstrations of navigating different social media sites. Participants will learn that certain social media sites are used for certain activities, which may aid in monitoring social media in schools. This multi-media session will leave attendees with new knowledge and skills to use in their personal and professional lives and provide lessons to pass along to the communities the attendees serve.
