Facebook Boundries as an Educator
Regardless of what screen name you use you can be traced and identified.
Do NOT accept students as "friends".
Monitor postings from other "friends" and promptly remove postings or friends that are inappropriate.
Do not post comments about your job, colleagues, or students.
Stay away from personal information or references to things in your personal life such as references to sex, drinking, partying, etc.
Do not post photographs of you or your friends engaged in what could be considered inappropriate behavior, even if it is a joke.
Be cognizant of the "causes" you join and pages you promote. All of these create an image of you.
