There has been a lot of discussion in the wake of the new law in Missouri which bans teachers from "exclusive” interaction between teachers and students on Facebook both positive and negative. (Click here for video.) Does Google+ make it easier for us to keep our social lives separate from our professional lives by allowing us to create circles? How will these laws be enforced, will all teachers’ online social accounts be scrutinized? I would like to get my students to do some critical thinking about these issues. I am interested in gathering all stakeholders' perspectives – students, parents, teachers and concerned citizens to help them create some viable solutions. Is this law necessary?
