What should be the policies and guidelines for online media that students create for high school journalism programs?
That was a question that the teachers taking Multimedia for High School Journalism Educators at Indiana University had as they created their own blogs and considered how to help their students create online media.
The discussion led to me checking the Web to see what guidelines and guidance I could find. I wrote a post on my Thoughts on Teaching blog about the guidelines I found from NSPA, SPLC and RTDNA.
Let me know of other guidelines you’re aware of for making decisions about student media online — blogs, Facebook and online publications.
