An Educator’s Guide to Internet and Social Media Law in the Classroom

Nadya Tymochenko and Gillian Tuck Kutarna, partners in our Education law industry group, have written An Educator’s Guide to Internet and Social Media Law in the Classroom, a new reference publication that reviews the legal issues and considers solutions for school boards, school administrators, teachers and other educators.

With the constant evolution of the online world and exponential rise of social media, this text is an up-to-date, must-have resource addressing specific implications for educators across a wide range of topics, including: legal liability, cloud computing, mobile devices in schools, terms and conditions of use, student/teacher electronic communications, privacy, digital citizenship, defamation and policy recommendations.

An Educator’s Guide to Internet and Social Media Law in the Classroom is now available from Thomson Reuters. Visit their website for more information and details on how to order.
