Upcoming Training & Workshops

How Can Someone Else Use the Photo I Posted on Social Media?! It’s in the Fine Print
Social Media is a powerful tool and the benefits should not be overlooked. Child care providers can use social media to communicate with parents and parents can use it to share milestones with family and friends. Photos are especially fun to share on social media and once the child care provider posts them anyone can have access to share or use them again. Wait! Did you just say anyone can use the photos I posted online?

During this session participants will discuss who has the right to use the photos their child care program posts on social media, explore privacy settings, and learn how to make your child care photos less desirable to those that should not have them.

These workshops have been made possible thanks to a partnership with Child Care Resource & Referral and with funding from Iowa Department of Human Services.
