Ont. teachers advised not to tweet with students
College says avoid connections on social media sites
Social media may be the new frontier of communication but not between teachers and students.
The Ontario College of Teachers says teachers should avoid connecting with their students on Facebook or Twitter.
They are also told to avoid contacting them on LinkedIn, Flickr, YouTube and MySpace.
The college issued an advisory to maintain professional boundaries, saying it's vital to the public trust.
It also says some members have groomed a student for sexual purposes, using electronic messages to win their confidence.
