Social media - class description

Level: 101; Age requirement: 14 & Up

 

DESCRIPTION

This is a comprehensive class to master the use of the Facebook, Twitter, and in turn all social media. We will cover topics such as copyrights, building and engaging an audience, search engines, personality branding, spam, friends vs. followers and monetization. The DO's and DO-NOT's of Social Media will be taught and mastered in this class. Note-taking is required, as students will need to refer back to information taught in the class in order to further their internet presence. As Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and the internet changes, this class will change, so it is expected that many students will want to take the class again to learn new concepts, rules and interfaces.

CLASS PROJECTS

Each student will be assigned the task of creating their own personally branded Facebook Page (not personal profile) and Twitter account, complete with relevant content. If possible, students will also have other social media accounts that are all linked together.

CODE OF CONDUCT

Students will not be graded (unless in College); however, they will be evaluated on their ability to follow directions and complete assignments. Note-taking is required. Students will be expected to rely on their extensive notes to complete the class and their personal projects.
