Teachers should avoid connecting with their students on Facebook, Twitter or other social media, the Ontario College of Teachers said Monday.
If a teacher and a student were exchanging text messages or messages on Facebook, it could be misconstrued, said Salvatori.
"The tone might become too friendly or not maintain those professional boundaries and it can become a slippery slope where it could be misconstrued as grooming behaviour," he said.
The advisory states that some members "have been found to have groomed a student for sexual purposes, using electronic messages to gradually win a student's confidence and establish an inappropriate relationship."
