Abstract

The knowledge society poses challenges in the field of education. These challenges include social and cultural aspects as well as aspects referring to educators' skills and competencies. Teachers' roles are changing learning and teaching as well as social and emotional aspects. SNS play a major role in this educational change, extending the scope and settings in which teachers and students communicate, with regards to curricular issues as well as inter-personal issues. This may affect and even alter traditional hierarchical structures in schools. The purpose of the proposed symposium is to present empirically-based points of view from an international perspective that may highlight teachers’ new role and needs in the SNS-era, especially in secondary schools. The symposium addresses relevant issues addressed by teachers, administrators and policymakers constantly. The symposium deals with contemporary issues reflecting change in student-teacher relationships in the SNS-era from pedagogical, social, emotional and ethical points of view.
