Abstract

Many preservice teachers are members of online communities such as MySpace and Facebook, but they are often unaware that pictures and comments posted on these and other public sites can be accessed by anyone searching the Internet for their name. Principals and other administrators frequently use search engines such as Google or Yahoo to find out more information about applicants for positions in their schools. This presentation will provide access to resources that allow preservice and inservice teachers to build a positive online professional profile through TeacherPOP (http://teacherpop.ning.com/), a social networking Web site created for this purpose.
