In the video player above, watch #virtues, WHNT News 19′s 30-minute documentary on social media responsibility. The special is posted in five parts.
WHNT News 19 produced this documentary in partnership with Leadership Huntsville/Madison County Connect Class 16. It initially aired March 1, 2014.
We will re-air #virtues on Saturday, May 10 on WHNT from 4:30 to 5 p.m. and on WHNT2 from 5 to 5:30 p.m.
This Taking Action Special focuses on the importance of teaching students social media responsibility. A local teen shares her story of being cyberbullied, and middle school and high school students give candid examples of how social media impacts their lives in both positive and negative ways. School counselors share how they are helping students navigate the digital world.
Parents – how do you make sure your child is not the bully, or victim? What are the latest social media tools kids are using and adults don’t know about?
We explore these topics in #Virtues. Our goal is to give parents and educators the tools to teach our future generation how to use social media in a virtuous way.
