Concerned that the fast-evolving technology used to empower students also puts the school at risk? The legal issues that affect today's classrooms require a heightened awareness and understanding of Internet safety and cyber law. This timely reference is an essential overview for teachers, media specialists, and administrators covering legal issues related to Internet and technology use. Lawyer and educational policy expert Aimee M. Bissonette provides up-to-date research, jargon-free summaries of legal cases illustrating potentially risky classroom situations, and proactive strategies on: privacy, security, copyright, liability, and safety; internet tools, social networking sites, cyberbullying, and appropriate online behavior; and, the use of non-school electronics such as cell phones, hand held computers, and cameras. With sample policies, procedures, permission forms, and contract language, "Cyber Law" turns complicated legal concepts into concrete ideas that will help schools act responsibly and anticipate new developments.
