Common Sense Questions to Ask Before Posting Photos

csm?small

Twenty-first Century learners are great when it comes to intrinsically understanding how to easily use resources and share information in the digital world, but they often need assistance making careful judgements about what is appropriate to share (and what is not). When a problem occurs, it’s often because a child makes an instantaneous decision to send off an image — and it turns out to be the wrong decision. It’s just so easy to share!

Check out this terrific poster, with questions to ask before sharing a photo, easily used when you discuss social media and digital common sense issues at home or in a classroom. We all make digital errors from time to time, but this graphic can help us develop a visual memory that assists with decision-making.

The image is available at Common Sense Media, and I discovered it on the Edudemic blog. It will serve as a great jumping off point anytime image-sharing issues arise.

Because the poster is so well designed it can be used with almost any age group. In fact, quite a few adults will profit from reviewing the questions.

The original file, at Common Sense Media, is in PDF form and easy to download. I’ll be sharing copies of this poster with teachers and parents at my school, encouraging that it be posted in each classroom and at important locations at student homes.
