Editorial Reviews


Magette appears to have plenty of experience of implementing a social media policy in an American school district. There is a lot of specific advice born from experience, much of which makes good sense. Chapter Two, in particular, contains some sensitive arguments against prejudices and concerns that may be encountered when trying to pull recalcitrant communities on board, and Chapter Seven provides a useful smorgasbord of suggestions about good practice in a few social media sites. In general, it is packed with recommendations, suggestions and patterns to follow that school administrators might find useful in implementing a social media policy. (Journal of Educational Technology & Society)

As educators, we cannot afford not to take advantage of this powerful resource for our students and for ourselves. This is a good addition to your bookshelf. (British Journal of Educational Technology)

With Kristin guiding the way, the Eudora School District is a pioneer in the use of social media as both a communication and learning tool. Instead of giving into fears about social media, Eudora teachers and leaders embraced it through basic risk management. This book is a useful guide for boards of education, administrators, and teachers to embrace the digital world, instead of asking students to leave it at the classroom door. (Dr. John Heim, Executive Director, Kansas Association of School Boards)

Students and parents expect schools to engage with them where they are -- on social media. The Eudora Schools story shows that embracing social media in schools doesn't have to be complicated or scary. And this book shows exactly how to overcome risk to deliver enormous rewards for students, teachers, and families. (Ben Smith, Principal of Social: IRL, Director of Social and Emerging Media at Callahan Creek, National Social Media Club Advisory Board member)

The closer school communication is to the classroom, the more authentic it is and will become. The district spokesperson and leadership can no longer be the only people controlling the message. School communications professionals need to empower district staff members to help tell the public education story, and social media is a very relevant tool to do so. (Julie Zwahr, South Central Vice President, National School Public Relations Association)

Kristin Magette provides school districts and teachers a compelling case to explore social media integration, gain better communication strategies with their local communities, and target digital citizenship learning. This practical guide not only discusses the features and benefits of social media for schools, it explores the dynamic classroom opportunities waiting through global collaboration. Any district investigating social media tools such as Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram should have this information and would be wise to read this book. (Dyane Smokorowski, 2013 Kansas Teacher of the Year)
