The companion to the Student Social Media Academy:

Chapter 2: A Tech Pulse of Higher Ed Professionals

Summary of Exercises

This chapter 2 exercise has two parts:
  • Diagnose Your Tech Symptom
    It’s time to tap into what you’re thinking, feeling, and actually doing related to technology and the realities of your digital identity: your wonders, worries, and what-ifs.
  • Develop a Digital Code of Ethics
    Ethos is defined as the guiding beliefs of a person, group, or organization. Write down your ethos, including your moral compass for character, thought, emotion, and action. How does it play out? Can your ethos be your guide in online action and have real-time impact? If you were to document your ethos as a code of ethics for social media, what elements would be included? These can include what you stand for (passions/beliefs) as well as what you will not stand for in your life.
