Canadian Safe School Network Conference
Lawyer Supports Social Media For Success And Safety

On Friday November 25, 2011 Education and Internet Lawyer Eric Roher spoke to an audience of 60 education professionals in Toronto, Ontario Canada about legal issues surrounding social media and students. Toronto Police Corporate Communications Social Media Officer Constable Scott Mills attended the presentation, along with Earl Haig Secondary School Safety Monitor Dave Bradley, community member Paisley Rae, and Toronto Police Service Media Coordinator Kevin Masterman, at the invitation of Dave Fraser, the Canadian Safe Schools Network Events Manager.

Arrangements were made to live stream the presentation of Eric Roher for the purpose of sharing with others not in the room the relevant and up to date information about the state of the law in Canada relating to social media and education.

A few photos were taken and are included here. There are many more references to policy development and solutions for social media challenges throughout the blog that is operated by Scott Mills. We hope that the information presented here is useful to others for social media strategy going forward.
