Social Media for Educators

Be aware of its uses and popularity;

however,

Be wary of its consequences


Guidelines

  • Use caution interacting with individual students on sites to avoid perception of bias

  • Set expectations i.e. you can exchange messages about course assignments, but don’t begin small talk when you see me online

  • Course requests such as asking for an extended deadlines must be done through a school site, not Facebook.
