Teachers and Facebook

Facebook is everywhere and it is what the students are using to communicate.
For this reason, teachers have started to join Facebook and connect with their students.
However, there is great risk involved when choosing to go online especially connecting with
students. The wrong thing could cost your job. A friend of mine suggested that I share this link with all of you. Even if you are not a teacher, these tips are really good.

I really like the advice of not connecting students to your personal account. A better idea is to create a teacher account. This account can provide information on events, assignments coming up etc. It is a little more work to have two Facebook accounts but better the extra work than the risk. The alternative is don't connect to students.

Here is the link. Hope it helps you build your network safely.


If you have a tip, trick or resource you would like shared with everyone please email them to Susan Fischer at susan@clinchportal.com and we will post them here.
