    We had an internet safety day where they told us they'd been on all our twitters and facebooks and and people were told to remove certain info, they also thought someone in year 7/8 appeared to be speaking to people on twitter they shouldn't do o.O the whole thing was incredibly awkward tbh

    That is actually a little bit creepy I'd be so annoyed if my college did that 😳😳

    Every department in my school has twitter, and the school as a whole :lol:

    it sometimes post useful information like when school is closed just as i'm about to set off there :lol: and come crunch time is used as out of school revision to contact some teachers (mostly maths) also shares some student work or organisations which isn't bad.

    Mine just pull you into the office and interrogate you on why it was inappropriate.



    Haha



    That would be so much better...



    In a way it seems kind of stalker-ish.

    Considering what some teenagers do nowadays, would schools even want to follow their students? :lol:

    I'm not sure they're supposed to. Absolutely not with their personal accounts, I'm not sure about school accounts though, they shouldn't be following pupils really.

    I think I also heard a 'rule' about teachers not being allowed to add students on Facebook, and vice versa.

    I think that's just good practice really. Like, the teacher-student relationship can sometimes walk a fine line and things like Facebook would probably make it cross the line. It's normal at my school though to add your teachers once you leave.

    Attempted to cook a roast dinner today. Burnt an oven glove in the process but the lamb was soooo good :coma:


    Re the whole Twitter thing, every department in my school has an account. They put the mock exam timetable up on Twitter (they never emailed it to us or gave us paper copies, Twitter was the only way to access it) which was ****ing stupid given that 1) I use my account once per 100 years and 2) not everybody has an account and 3) the internet filters block the entire website :rolleyes: . **** logic. A couple of years ago the head of year for the year group below mine created a fake account and added loads of students on Facebook. She then print screened their profiles and showed them in assembley :lol:

    Pretty much :lol:

    To be fair, I think that the staff have also learnt lessons from us... some kids in the year below me found a load of teacher's profiles and told them what they'd seen .

    There's a club near our school which our pupils go to when there are big parties, particularly the end of year one. I heard a teacher went there at like 1AM or so and was taking pictures of pupils there :lol:

    My school actually does a fair bit through Twitter. The principal has his own account (I follow him!) and usually posts pictures of the top achievers each year with their grades on results day.

    Aside from that, I have one of my old History teachers on Facebook who just left this past year. Rather odd, that.

    I can't be ****ed with Twitter to be honest I have an account but don't follow anything related to my school. I don't have any teachers on Facebook either. The way I see it, I have a professional relationship with them, which is entirely separate from the relationship I have with my mates and I wouldn't want those boundaries to blur

    Most of the teachers at my schools changed their privacy settings when they caught wind of what the younger kids were doing Good thing, too, I don't wanna be hearing about that

    Charming. One of our sub teachers was telling the world about all the girls he was shagging so clearly teachers have uncontrollable urges.

    I think there's a fine line that needs to be drawn when it comes to the student-teacher relationship.

    I do believe it's important for people to have open discussions with their teachers though. As long as it doesn't cross into much too personal territory. I think one of my school's Classics teachers, who will be taking my class next year, struck the right balance with this. He's a lovely guy, you can easily have a chat with him about anything from academia to contemporary music, but he keeps certain things private and maintains a good level of authority over everyone.
