Posting images on social media
Both Molecule World and the MW DNA Binding Lab allow users to save images of molecular structures for use in school assignments such as laboratory reports, in support of the common science practices described in the Next Generation Science Standards.
Students without Facebook or Twitter accounts are unable to post images from the Molecule World or Molecule World DNA Binding Lab apps. However, if a student has a Twitter or Facebook account AND they have these applications on their iPad AND they have linked these applications to the app, they are able to post images of DNA or other molecular structures on Twitter or Facebook, such as the example shown here from one of the spider silk proteins.
In practice, students under 13 shouldn't see the Twitter or Facebook buttons that would allow them to post images since both Twitter and Facebook try to prevent children under 13 from creating accounts. But, if a student under 13 does create a Facebook or Twitter account, and has these apps on their iPad, their parents, teachers, or IT directors can prevent students from posting images in Facebook or Twitter by doing one of the following things:
1. Use the iOS parental controls to enable restrictions on the device.
2. Use the iOS parental controls to restrict access to the Facebook or Twitter apps.
