Social media is an effective tool for advertising and communicating about events in a child care program. As we share photographs about the children’s learning environment, projects and daily experiences, these become an extension of our programs. It is important to know your rights and responsibilities and to pay attention to how and what we share in order to ensure we respect the privacy of children, staff, families and anyone associated with our program. Come and explore the proper use of social media, photographs for educational purposes and advertising; copyright and photo consents.
• Assess the risks and responsibilities of using
social media for a child care program.
• Learn how to use photographs for
educational purposes and advertising.
• Examine what is copyright and the purpose
of photo consent and release
SUITABLE FOR ALL EARLY LEARNING AND CHILD CARE PROFESSIONALS
