Facebook for Educators

Ok, teachers, summer is here.  Hopefully, you’ll have some time to indulge in some luxuries – a good read perhaps, an art class, a trip off island…  If you have some time, you may want to check out this resource, Facebook for Educators.  It’s comprehensive in scope, covering everything from the basics of Facebook to creating a school Facebook policy to how to use Facebook to support collaboration and communication in the classroom.  Not to worry – leveraging the social networking affordances of Facebook does not require you to friend your students but rather make use of the Pages and Groups features within Facebook.  The information is easy to navigate (chunked well) and there are handouts that offer application ideas and tips.  Happy Facebooking!
