Can Teachers Be Friends With Students Using Social Media?

Can Teachers Be Friends With Students Using Social Media? | Responsible Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it

"Wherever you are as a person and as a professional, you are still a teacher. It's a high calling that we've gone after. Whenever and wherever you are, seek to model the best of your professional and personal self. Keep a sense of professional distance.

 

A professional persona.

 

Professional distance doesn't mean be a heartless, soulless automaton. Certainly, care and love and concern for the young people in our work is paramount. But it does mean be intentional and purposeful about the ways that you present yourself, wherever you may happen to be." ~ Bud Hunt
