5 Best Practices for Educators on Facebook

5 Best Practices for Educators on Facebook | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

Facebook has been pegged as a waste of time, a classroom disruption and a bad habit that is correlated with low grades. Missouri even went so far as to ban Facebook and other social media relationships between teachers and students (the law was later repealed).

But teachers such as Reynol Junco — who recently published a study that shows certain types of Facebook use are correlated with higher GPAs — are beginning to look at ways that they can use Facebook to their advantage.

I really enjoyed this post because it reminded me of what Facebook could be used to do to support students at risk who are too nervous to even ask questions, example through using Face book Groups. Many adminsitrators have an immediate aversion to facebook and don't see its possibilites as a learning and modertated group discussion tool.

I would like to prove it with myself.

Dorothy Retha Cook's curator insight, December 11, 2015 5:10 AM

There is a difference in learning and sharing, we can share some things we are not able to learn. As slaves couldn't read words but they taught the ways of their lives required to be lived instead! As grandma would say having all the book sense with no good common sense don't amount to nothing. Knowing how go read a book about how to change a light bulb but having no good common sense on how to perform it makes you a person with plenty of book sense sitting on the dark at night because you don't have the good common sense on how to do what the book said. Grandma and them had a way about telling the truth as it was said if you don't want to know the truth Grandma and them style don't ask them! Learning comes in different ways not all work the same! Don't judge another because they learn differently but always remember 

what doesn't work for you just might work fine for another!

Asynchronous learning allows for reflection and is not exclusive to online learning. The two are complements to each other regardless of media.

In this episode, we finish our interview with Audrey Watters. Lindsay Clandfield (our interviewer) and Audrey talk about the 'monstrous' ideas in edtech that refuse to go away, about the history of teaching machines and finally about whether or not there is an edtech equivalent of the military industrial complex in the United States and worldwide.

We also hear from the Disabled Access Friendly group and their work online.
