Facebook do’s• Introduce web links and say what you like about the video, website etc.• Encourage students by ‘liking’ their contributions and occasionally participating in discussions.• Tell students in class that there is a good link on the class FB page.• Discuss links/conversations from the class FB page in class.• Ensure students are aware of what is acceptable and monitor FB activity for appropriacy.• Look for current useful information to share and enjoy learning with your students.• Spend 5-10mins a day ‘watering’ your class page.
  14. 14. Facebook donts• Dont post too much as this can often prevent student discussion/participation. This might because the students do not want to question the teacher.• Don’t insist on participation. Participation is probably not graded and one or two students will not be comfortable with using FB.• Don’t set up the page tell the students about it and forget about it.
