You can't be a jobsworth these days. An email or text is very much a one-to-one thing; a pupil might feel specially valued. Even on the school site, I could be marking online, live, maybe quite late in the evening. I could have had a glass of wine. I could start discussing work with a student who's also online. It's Facebook by another name, really.

You could easily make comments you'd regret. Digital communication is a two-way street. Phil Ryan, a now-retired science teacher from Liverpool, briefly became an unlikely — and, as far as he was concerned, unwished-for — internet sensation last year when mobile phone footage of him doing the funky chicken for a sixth-form class on the last day of term was posted on YouTube and attracted more than 5, viewings and plenty of adverse comments within days.

Earlier this year, more than 30 pupils were suspended from Grey Coat Hospital School, a Church of England secondary in London, after dozens of girls joined a Facebook group called The Hate Society and posted hundreds of "deeply insulting comments" about one of their teachers. Emails can be misinterpreted According to a survey this spring for the Association of Teachers and Lecturers and the Teachers Support Network, as many as one in 10 teachers have experienced some form of cyberbullying.
The consequences can be serious for teachers, many of whom are less technologically sophisticated than their students: That can be incredibly distressing. And they can do worse; there was a case in one school where pupils took a photo of a teacher's face, edited it onto a really gross, pornographic image of another woman's body, and stuck it online.
It has called for any school policy that requests or requires teachers to disclose their mobile numbers or email addresses to pupils to be banned; wants new legislation to outlaw teachers being named on websites; would like strategies to prevent all use of mobile phones when school is in session; and has even demanded that pupils' phones be classed as potentially dangerous weapons.
But they've thrown up new pressures and concerns. For a start, they've changed expectations of teachers — there's a real expectation in some schools now that teachers will basically be available at the convenience of the pupil.
There's also, with email, an expectation of a more or less instant response. And these forms of communication are far more informal, in style and content. You respond in a way you never would in a letter, or face to face. Teachers, Keates says, feel "increasingly vulnerable". A lot of the union's casework involves the use of mobile phones in schools, particularly in the classroom.
In some cases, teachers have had to defend themselves against allegations of misconduct from schools following the anonymous posting of classroom videos that they were not even aware had been filmed. Faced with the real risk of members either falling into difficulty involuntarily, or being deliberately targeted for abuse, unions and authorities have begun running extended courses for teachers on the pitfalls of new technology.
Fiona Johnson, director of communications at the General Teaching Council for England, says the new GTCE code for teachers, which comes into effect on 1 October, has a reference to the need for "teachers to maintain appropriate professional boundaries with children and young people".
Although this is "clearly not very specific", she concedes, "trainee teachers get more detailed advice during their initial training, local authority co-ordinators cover the issue with each cohort of newly qualified teachers, and schools have their own policies on these issues.
Most trainees are clear in their view that they would be unwise to open up their Facebook profiles to pupils, for example — and also aware from teaching practice that school policies now often specifically tell staff not to do so. In terms of texting and phones, we just advise very strongly that teachers do not make themselves accessible in any way at all that might be considered not appropriate.
False allegations of misconduct can have a truly devastating impact on a career. But I think teachers should be active online; it might even help prevent some of the things children can get up to, the very sexualised pictures they post of themselves online, for example. Banning us is almost insulting; it's like saying: Schools have enough absurd rules.
We should be in that cyberspace arena. I loved opening my email inbox to find a thoughtful note followed by a few photos that caused me to pause, reflect, and appreciate how blessed I was in my life. Sometimes a picture truly could say it all.
And when I received a video that was so powerful that it brought me to tears in less than 90 seconds, I forwarded it along to other of my family and close friends. Today, I don't receive nearly as many emails containing those warm and humorous images and videos. Instead, I see them displayed on my family's Facebook walls or I receive a mention from my friends' Twitter feeds. I also attend conferences where presenters share video segments they've been inspired by.
