The Ultimate Guide to The Use of Facebook in Education

The Ultimate Guide to The Use of Facebook in Education

Facebook as an Instructional Technology Tool Can the wildly popular social network be used constructively in the classroom? This student’s story says it can. Yesterday, student Kristen Nicole Cardon submitted a comment in response to my post 5 Reasons Why Educators Need To Embrace Internet Technologies in which she explained how she used Facebook in a course she took. I really appreciated her well stated discussion of how Facebook was used in the course and how the approach succeeded (slightly edited in the following excerpt). “In my British Literary History course last winter semester, my professor created a class facebook group which we all joined. We’d finish our reading for class and then get online and write a paragraph about what we’d read, focusing our comments on the specific course aims that my professor had created for the class. This way of conducting class was effective because: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. We shouldn’t discount facebook when it has proven to be a worthwhile classroom tool. About Kelly Walsh Print This Post

Ceux qui pensent encore que les séniors ne font pas partie de l’univers des réseaux sociaux devraient réviser leurs statistiques. Les motivations des seniors sur les réseaux sociaux ? Les têtes blanches vont d’abord sur les réseaux sociaux pour rester en contact régulier avec leurs petits-enfants. Ils sont enfin 30% chez les plus de 50 ans qui déclarent que les réseaux sociaux sont un moyen de faire des rencontres avec des personnes partageant les mêmes centres d’intérêts.

Reposez-vous la question de départ : vos clients potentiels sont-ils ou non sur les réseaux sociaux ?

Facebook Friending 101 for Schools Facebook has added an incredible complexity to our lives and relationships for one simple reason: it is in writing. The courts have always put things "in writing" in higher esteem above word of mouth. Now that we are inundated with video, text, and photographs and a set of complex relationships - we end up with things "in writing" that are distributed far beyond our true "friends" into places that get us in trouble. I don't have all the answers but am wrestling with this problem and want to lay out the facts so you and I can become co-travelers on this journey. I speak from experience, however, having two significant experiences under my belt with the school in this arena, know that there are things that I cannot say about situations that come in out what I share. It can happen because it DOES. In "the South" we are taught to be friendly from the moment our Mom's tell us as a drooling tot to "say hello because he just said hello to you." Wrong. Let's get this straight.

The Effective Educator:Using Social Media to Reach Your Community December 2010/January 2011 | Volume 68 | Number 4 The Effective Educator Pages 87-88 William M. Ferriter To the dismay of television producers who count on viewers spending free time on the couch passively consuming content, citizens of most developed nations are spending more free time connecting with one another through social media. Consider that 61 percent of adults who regularly go online—and 73 percent of online teens—interact with one another on social networking websites (Lenhart, Purcell, Smith, & Zickuhr, 2010; Madden, 2010). Mirroring these trends, educators are now increasingly taking advantage of social media services and tools. What's frustrating—particularly to many younger teachers—is that the same social media spaces widely embraced outside schools are routinely blocked within schools by district firewalls. For schools who've embraced social media spaces as tools for reaching out, however, the rewards are real. Proceed with Caution References Alexa. (2010). Compete. (2010).

Déblayer le terrain (Page précédente) Les enseignants demeurent encore prudents sur les réseaux sociaux, en particulier sur Facebook, le plus connu dans le monde scolaire. Les relations d’amitié entre élèves et enseignants font jaser, d’autant plus que l’âge minimal requis pour ouvrir un compte est fixé à 13 ans. Malgré 500 millions d’utilisateurs à travers le monde, Twitter est un réseau social en émergence en éducation. Quand Sylvain Bérubé, enseignant à la commission scolaire des Découvreurs, a présenté son projet, ses élèves n’ont pu s’empêcher de le questionner. « Twitter, c’est quoi? Brigitte Léonard mentionne l’importance de bien ficeler son projet et de le faire approuver. « C’était nouveau, explique-t-elle. À la différence de Facebook, Twitter n’implique pas une relation de réciprocité ou d’amitié. Les élèves de Mme Côté ont 16 et 17 ans, ils ont donc l’âge minimal requis pour s’ouvrir un compte Twitter personnel. Pour lire la suite
