#EdShift Chat: How to Use Social Media Ethically

    by Kathleen Bartzen Culver
    June 3, 2014
    Social media use during the Boston Marathon bombing posed many ethical issues for journalists.

    On Friday, June 6, our biweekly #EdShift chat will focus on how to avoid ethical minefields when using social media in news. We’ll cover questions of accuracy and verification, as well as inclusivity, participation and how to teach key principles in classes. The chat will be moderated as usual by MediaShift’s Education Curator Katy Culver, with special guests Steve Fox of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Talya Minsberg of the New York Times and Mike Reilley of DePaul University. A Storify of the chat will be added to this page after the chat. After Friday’s chat, #EdShift chats are moving to the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET.
