  4. 4. Ian Fordham and Ty Goddard, Co-founders of The Education Foundation and authors of the guide, said: “Facebook has the potential to be a game changer for teachers, schools and the classroom, with benefits for learning, engagement and communication. Tools such as Timeline and Groups have the potential to revolutionize the way teaching and homework is planned, completed and reported on, and it can also be a tool for teachers’ professional development, providing a safe space to share expertise and professional practice beyond the walls of the classroom. “The digital world and social media can often be confusing and the role of teachers in helping young people understand and benefit from the resources and tools out there is of utmost importance. We hope our Facebook Guide for Educators will help many take that first step.”
