School officials in Nashua, N.H., have crafted new social media policies that offer guidelines for educators on electronic communication with students. Under the policies, which must be approved by the school board, teachers would be encouraged to create "fan pages" on Facebook to interact with students, rather than "friending" them. The policy also outlines other acceptable modes of communication such as Moodle, while discouraging others, such as sending text messages.
