We had an exciting conversation about the appropriate boundries that teachers should have between their personal and professional lives with their students, and how the Internet and Social Networking tools effect this relationship. Lucy Gray joined us about half way through our show to discuss Facebook and how college students are using it as a tool to learn, communicate and even get jobs.

Next week we'll be attempting to have a few students join in the conversation.
