Web Publishing Guidelines
Web 2.0 Social Media Guidelines
These Guidelines have been established for students of our district who use social media tools including weblogs, podcasts or wikis for online communication and collaboration as part of their learning activities. These guidelines are to be used in conjunction with the Saratoga Union Acceptable Use Policy. Any inappropriate use could lead to the loss of these privileges.
A weblog or blog is similar to a web page consisting of many updated posts. New posts are added to blogs regularly and are stored as archives or history of posts. Blogs are used to post opinions, views and comments about anything. This may range from hobbies, interests, or your opinion on current news topics.
A wiki is similar to a webpage, but allows people to add and edit content collaboratively. Wikis can be password protected for privacy purposes.
