A Teacher's Guide to Facebook
Ah yes; if the page is loading correctly, then you should see a lovely Scribd window just below featuring the document A Teacher’s Guide to Using Facebook. This guide by Bernadette Rego is a great starter guide to Facebook, and puts an emphasis on issues that teachers should consider as they use Facebook for personal and educational uses. On the other hand, if the page is not loading correctly, or is sloooowwww, just download the PDF version at the bottom of the page.
If you are wondering why educators would use Facebook at all in educational settings, check out some of the links below where teachers discuss their practices on Facebook. Could these practices be reproduced in other social network settings? Or does Facebook, with its humongous membership base, provide some value added? You, of course, will decide.
