Online: #LTHEChat: Managing Negative Use of Social Media and Cyberbullying
April 20, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Guesting on this weekly online chat: an hour with 6 questions to stimulate conversation.
We would consider questions related to the negative use of social media, and how to manage bullying on social media.
This will draw upon thinking from regular participants, triggered by some material from my book Raising Children in a Digital Age, my experience in HE, and you’ll see I’ve spoken on this kind of topic before.
