  • This is probably the first thing we all think about when using Facebook with our students – well besides communication. As an online instructor I’ve chosen to use Facebook as another collaborative space for my students to answer questions, share resources, and connect with each other concerning what we are doing in class. 3 reasons for this choice: 1. discussion boards in ANGEL get too convoluted and difficult to follow 2. most students are logged into Facebook more than ANGEL, and for longer periods of time 3. easier to share web related resources – adding links is quicker
  • Here’s an example of one of my courses. You’ll notice I chose to use a group instead of a page. One main reason for that choice – students can create original posts I wanted them to be able to initiate conversations too
  • This may be the hardest way to use Facebook, but only because it requires us to think outside our usual box. However, it’s not impossible.
  • We all know this guy
  • And this guy….but maybe anpther way to creatively use Facebook is to ask students to role play a Facebook conversation between these two men? What questions might Lincoln ask Washington? What advice might Washington pass on to Lincoln? Role play could be used in any number of ways and in any number of disciplines through FB.
  • How about asking students to post their own questions about something they have read? Facebook groups and pages allow members to pose questions and have discussions. The student here began a discussion about conceptualizing Hamlet and whether it is more difficult to do in the format of a play. The comment elicited 17 other comments and opened up valuable discussion that probably never would have occurred in the regular classroom.
