A few safety tips for students when publishing to the web

You have an obligation to watch out for K-12 students as they contribute to any mapping or blog for school. Remember:

  • never have students use last names on photos or communications

  • foster children may not be legally permitted to contribute to any web site...check your state laws

  • seriously consider having students place their work in a shared folder where you can review their work before you upload it

  • check that you are following your school district's guidelines for student work published on the web

  • alert parents to the project you are doing to make certain they have no questions about the project
