Abstract

Many teachers are increasingly using Social Networking Services (SNS) in their classrooms, which allows for the first time the outside world to peer into students' private learning spaces (Blyth, 2011). However, the adoption of social media has mostly been done without careful consideration of possible ramifications students may suffer. Consequently, this article considers issues of information management, identity, reputation, privacy, and potential consequences on classroom dynamics. Finally, there is a discussion of the privacy strategies that teachers could adopt.
