Unit 4: The Connected Teacher
In this unit, we will focus on the following questions:
- What are the professional expectations of teachers with regard to their “electronic” interactions with students?
- Why and how should teachers control their public “brand” or persona?
- How do teachers’ use of emerging technologies such as social networking, cell phones, etc., present challenges to maintaining appropriate student-teacher boundaries?
- What are some of the potential consequences for inappropriate use of technology?
