|FRIEND OR FOE: New arguments arise in the debate |
on Facebooking with students
The latest story I've come across on the topic is this Huffington Post article by Emily Wall, Assistant Professor at the University of Alaska Southeast. She nearly "always says yes" when her students friend request her on Facebook. Her reason: It helps her get to know her students on a personal level, understand where they're at in life, and get clued into the highs and lows they're going through. This, she writes, "makes it easier for me to teach them."
