Because if the teachers follow their students on social media than the student will be way more cautious of what her or she post on their account. If a student were to post anything inappropriate than there would be a trusted adult that would see this activity on there account.
If a student did not understand something in the class he or she can just ask the teacher for notes OR if a teacher forgot to discuss about an assignment he or she can just give those assignments via social media. Which is very useful for students and teachers BOTH.
If your not a savage. I think it is fine for a teacher and student to be friends on FB after a student graduates/is finishing up their senior year. I think they should be allowed because it is a nice and easy way to communicate with one another, especially if a students needs help with certain academic work. It is also a good approach cause some students don't like going up to their teacher in front of their whole class so doing it in a more private environment will make a lot more students feel more comfortable.
Nuff said. But i need more words so im writing more. Some guys like an older teacher, case and present in america where a 15 year old slept with two of his teachers. A 15 year old ffs. Besides that the teacher can help the kid with homework n shit.
Its fine that students and teachers should be friends on social networking sites but with a limit and if they cross the limit it can cause problems and student will leave his/her extra activities and will have interest in gadgets such as mobiles or tablets or laptops so they should not cross the limit

Finally, after spending so many years with teachers, especially in high school- where teachers have watched you grow from a child to an adult- you do start to form more of a friendship with teachers especially if you are leaving school so it is nice to keep in contact with them especially if you have formed a close friendship with them.
If there is a test and you don't understand the lesson you could ask your teacher to explain more about it. You could also ask them about the things that you forgot to write in your diary. And by my experience I have ask quite many question from them through sosial media.
I think it should be allowed because if someone needs help with their homework the teacher would be able to give them so help and ideas to help finish their homework. Another reason i think that it should be allowed because if they have family problems such as, harrassment abusement and just regular day issues
I think it is fine for a teacher and student to be friends on FB after a student graduates/is finishing up their senior year. If the teacher made a real impact on you, you should keep in contact with them. A freshman friending a teacher is a totally different story...
I think that it is fine if a teacher and a student are friends on social networks. I think that sometimes teachers and students form a special bond, and there should not be a rule against them being friends outside of school, whether it is in real life or online on social networking sites. I am friends with many former teachers.
I think that it would give teachers and students opportunities to make actual relationships with their teachers and it might lead to the student and teacher to have a romantic relationship or lead to the teacher making the student trust them and then persuade the students to do things they don't want to
There is really no need to.The most common argument I see is so teachers can give updates on assignments and students can ask questions.Well there are online services that provide that like remind101 and Canvas that are designed for just dialgoue between each other.Also teachers and students start getting into each others personal lives and that can just create awkward and creepy situations.This can also lead to pedophilia which is rare but does happen.It can also lead to teachers playing favorites in grading also just normal social media drama so they no.Teachers should use hints like remind101 and Canvas that are designed for teacher and student purposes.
It's a very weird situation for students to be in. They are going to have to deal with judgement, harassment, and if they don't want their teachers invading their privacy. It is not the greatest idea in my opinion but of course there are many people who would think differently.
Students and teachers have a professional relationship to keep amongst themselves. Allowing friendship on social networking gives both parties to much information into the personal lives of each other. This can lead to improper relationships between them. It can also lead to conflict of interest in the evaluation process of the student. I agree with the person that wrote this,
I think that there should be a boundary or a certain app to use to communicate with things like if you need help with something or you have a question but not on social media, to me thats too dangerous and texting on personal accounts thats kind of crossing the line.
There is so much more bad that can happen then good. If a teacher wants to communicate with a student about something academic... They can use a different site such as edmodo. It is inappropriate for a teacher to follow a student because its unprofessional and parents may feel offended. Students want to go on social media with their friends and family... They don't want to be bothered by teachers asking questions and nagging them about homework.
Students and teachers should not be friends on social networks. Communication outside of the classroom could potentially cause problems, as has been seen with some teacher-student scandals in recent years. There is too much familiarity between students and teachers if they communicate outside of the classroom, and this can cause problems in rare instances. But just in general, in less severe cases, it can cause teachers to be seen more as friends and buddies than as authority figures.
All this does is open the door for relationships that aren't allowed and for good reason, it should not be allowed. Students can talk to teachers through other outlets if they have academic related questions, there's no need for one to be monitoring the other. It isn't the message we want being sent, even if well intended.
No, I do not think teachers and students should be friends on social networks. I think that a relationship this friendly would be inappropriate for a teacher and student to have. The teacher needs to continue to be an authority figure, and not a friend, or any number of bad situations could occur.
I don’t think that it is ever appropriate for teachers and
students to be friends on social networks.
There is too much that can go wrong.
Social media is a free for all where anyone is free to say anything to
or about anyone else. Teachers and
students should enjoy a healthy separation in and out of school.
