Can teachers be students' Facebook friends?

  • Stop shooting the messenger! The Houston Chronicle reported on the dangers of teachers using Facebook to stay in touch with their students. Those of us in education have to start looking at alternative ways to contact our students and their families. While Facebook might not be the best choice, there are alternatives as suggested by one of the commenters. However, I'm worried that the technology will become so demonized that schools will restrict teachers to pinning notes to students shirts.
