fb and students

One of my Facebook friends posted this presentation about the potential for using fb in the classroom: “Drive Belonging and Engagement in the Classroom Using Facebook.”

The presentation is geared to high school, but there are interesting ideas here for higher ed faculty and instructors who are interested in using fb as an engagement tool. There are widely varying thoughts on whether that’s a good idea, but I’ll leave that part to you.

The source is the Edumorphology blog by Michael Staton, who, according to his site, is a former secondary teacher and founder of a company working on a free CMS on fb. (Interestingly, here he works on debunking the “creepy treehouse” idea.)

  1. Hi Patsy,

    Thanks for linking to some of my work. I’ve transformed it into a video here:

    Let me know what you think.

    If there are any other questions or ideas you have on the social web for education, I’d be happy to have a dialog with you.

    All the Best,

    Michael

  2. Oh, I see that’s one of your favorite videos. Cool!
