Ontario College of Teachers Issues Advisory on the Use of Electronic Communication and Social Media

The advisory offers advice to teachers on how best to use electronic communication and social media with students. It encourages the use of social media as a teaching tool but cautions teachers to be careful when using sites like Facebook.

"In the current education milieu, e-communication and social media do and will continue to offer engaging and exciting teaching and learning experiences for students and teachers. Their use should be encouraged," says the Registrar. "We want to alert members to its potential risks and provide guidance for its responsible, professional use."

The teaching profession's ethical standards and standards of practice provide the foundation for the College's advice.

"Our advice to teachers is to keep ethical standards - care, trust, respect and integrity - in line of sight," says College Chair Liz Papadopoulos, OCT. "As teachers and educators, we model professionalism and responsibility for our students in both the real world and the virtual world."

It's the College's role as a professional regulator to provide advice to its members from time to time on emerging issues or in response to member questions on aspects of teaching that will continue to advance the profession and the public's confidence in it.
