Maryland public school administrators were given a lesson Friday in social media to help teachers help students dealing with bullying, as reported by ABC2news.  The lesson is part of a pilot program with Facebook.  As reported,

This is an idea started by Facebook. It sent a representative to train Maryland school administrators about the ins and outs of Facebook and other social media.  Facebook chose Maryland for this pilot program. It wants educators to be better trained to see problems on social media and address them, especially cyber-bullying.

MACo has hosted sessions on strategies used to counter cyber-bullying and on use of social media in local government with Facebook.  For more information,  read our previous posts on Conduit Street:
