Taming the Wild Wild Web – Facebook Pages for Teachers
I found this video out on the “wild, wild, web” so I thought I’d share it with you all, since a lot of teachers ask me about how they might use Facebook without having to friend their students. I know a lot of districts, and teachers (myself included) don’t feel comfortable with teachers friending students, and using Facebook as a way to stay connected outside the classroom. However, this video that I discovered on YouTube, by the somewhat ornery Wyatt “Hoss” Rancher, provides some good advice for setting up a Facebook page that appears to be a bit more manageable and acceptable by some schools.
I’m not sure if the video is supposed to be entertaining or not, but it certainly is a different approach to a technology tutorial. I put together a quick survey, as I’ve been toying with an idea like this, and I’d love to see what you think about this video. Please answer the question below if you have the time!
