Social Media: new guidelines to be published on interacting with pupils online

Private Tutoring News August 2011

The Charity Childnet International is currently drawing up guidelines on how teachers should interact with pupils online.  With the ever-increasing popularity of social media websites like Facebook, there is more opportunity for students to interact and learn outside the classroom.  In a recent article published in the Times Educational Supplement (TES Connect), the issue of how teachers should interact with students online has been addressed. 

With social media websites, the boundaries between personal and professional are easily blurred and Childnet International have announced their plans to publish guidelines on the matter before the beginning of the new school term.

Childnet International is a registered charity and was established in 1995.  Its aims are to work in partnership with other organizations to make the internet a safe place for children.
