Social Media & The School Curriculum

Today I spoke with Will Faulkner on Midlands Radio on the topic of the changes at ask.fm‘ and also on the Slane photos incident which sparked a quick reaction from Facebook and Twitter to prevent access, and sharing, of photos of a 17 year old girl of an explicit nature that were retweeted or posted creating a viral incident in a matter of hours. I’ve written at length recently about internet trolls following the harassment of Caroline Criado-Perez, and in doing so reflected at length on my own experience twenty years ago with online chat, forums and digital communities.

Today I suggested to Will that the answer or at least the start of an answer, may lie in our school systems.
