Activity 9

Discipline & Legal Issues

Share article from EdWeek Magazine, Idaho Students, Administrators Fight Over Internet Privacy.

Introductory disclaimer: We are not lawyers but have worked with Nancy Willard and Tom Hutton, recognized legal counsel in this area.  No one yet has all of the answers to cybersafety law, but we'll share our understanding.  At the end of this workshop, we'll ask you to share your personal scenarios on the evaluation form so Tom Hutton can address them in the Fall.


Share one case involving MySpace and a false profile of an administrator with the outcomes. All but one of the lawsuits have been regarding excessive discipline of an administrator who was impersonated or denigrated by a student using MySpace or another site. And in all but one of those, the disciplinary action was overturned in court. Recommendation: In situations where a student is targeting an educator, seek informal resolution and do not impose excessive, formal discipline. Encourage the educator to pursue civil court actions (identity theft, libel and so on).


Provide Guiding Questions to review when considering disciplinary actions.  Let them be the experts on discipline and discuss appropriate consequences for their students for responding to online bullying and abuse. Give them Nancy Willard's handout, "Responding to Cyberbullying," and have them highlight salient points.

Guide them to Nancy's appendices B & C and give them a chance to read and comment.
