Facebook. As much as some people would like to ignore it, it is thoroughly ingrained in today’s society. I use this
popular social networking tool to encourage interaction among my students. Whether it is a conversation about
a current event or the latest assignment, I find it a great way to get the class talking! What are your thoughts and
concerns with using this new medium in the classroom? Is it ethical?Are we are invading students’“personal space”?
I’ll demonstrate how I use Facebook Groups to promote more interaction in all my classes (face-to-face and online),
assist with setup of your own Facebook group and open the room to discussion on whether or not we should allow
this popular social networking tool into our classrooms.
