Missouri students will soon be unfriended by their teachers. Under a new law that takes effect Aug. 28, teachers in the Show-Me State will no longer be able to "friend" students on popular social networking sites like Facebook. Instructors can still set up public pages or groups to post homework assignments or share resources, but individual friendships or communication will be illegal.
U.S. schools must better use technology in the classroom to help prepare today's children for the global economy and workplace, education professionals say.
Other instructors post news articles or other relevant material on students' Facebook pages, he said.
Among other things, Mr. Knezek said many teachers hold "virtual office hours" on Facebook, providing students with homework help for a few hours in the evening or on weekends.
