Social Media FRIEND or FOE?

Some Social Media Resources you Might Want to Consider Using

Facebook isn't just for 40+ year old moms to chat and discuss life. Facebook can serve a purpose in a classroom. It can be a way to share class related information, communicate with parents, and interact with students.
Twitter is a way to communicate with limitations. Because of the character limit to posts, Twitter is the quick-and-easy way to get information. You can share ideas within a classroom or around the globe!

Be Wary!

Some things to look out for when using social media with your students.
  • Be sure your students' parents are aware of social media.
  • Remind students how quickly images and posts can spread. Don't post something questionable.
  • Prospective employers can see your interactions on social media. Consider that when you post.
  • If you are not using Facebook in the classroom, there is no reason for you to be "friends" with current students.
  • Be sure you set privacy settings to prevent others (non-friends) from seeing your posts.
