Setting social media boundaries between teachers and students



Technology in the classroom is the new normal, providing an array of opportunities for learning and productivity. At the same time, the proliferation of personal electronic devices and social media outlets among children is creating new challenges for educators, parents, and students alike. This new landscape is ever-changing and can be difficult to navigate, especially as we strive to set social media boundaries and protect children from the potentially dangerous aspects of online communication.
