Cyberbaiting... It's not what you think

  1. I can totally see kids doing this to teachers.

    I don't usually even friend my co-workers or bosses. If I were a teacher, there's no way in hell I'd friend my students.

    Any teacher who thinks it's OK to cyber socialize with a student is a teacher who needs 1.) a class in ethics/conflicts of intrest, and 2.) a serious reprimand.

    I am friends with Army peers only. No subordinates. No superiors. Neither my commander, nor my Soldiers need to see any other side of me than what they see at work.

    It's clearly not what people think, since it has nothing to do with being FB friends and everything to do with actual personal interactions.

    You would think having video of these incidents would actually be worse for the student pulling the prank since it is now on record. Teacher can easily go to the administration and say "Here's video of so-and-so harassing me, please take action."

    Except when all of the parts where the student is egging the teacher on is edited out, making it seem like the teacher went off on some poor kid for no good reason.

    Good for these idiot kids because they are legally opening the door, or removing any possible argument against doing so, for classrooms to be videotaped by the school division.

    My wife decided to completely remove her FB account... she didn't have any current students as friends, but there were some former ones on there... but the current and the former ones were sometimes friends, and well, she didn't want to risk her job any more with this crap.

    I don't quite understand why mobile devices aren't banned from schools to begin with. If a parent really, really, really needs to get ahold of their kid, they can call the office. I realize those damn things are ubiquitous now, but there's no compelling pro argument for them that I can see.

    Is it illegal for teachers to place a cell phone on a tripod and tape the class? If not, that's what I'd do.
