Betty Clevenger's insight:

This caught my attention because the school is relatively close to me.  While I could not access the actual materials, the description lists that this site is being used for communicating with parents and students, as well as posting videos, taking polls, online assessments, and more!

Hector Leal's curator insight, October 18, 2015 8:12 PM

This is a great blog by Jeremy Kaiser, who describes himself as a "teacher trying to figure out how to best use technology to teach the future generation". In this blog, Jeremy Kaiser describes his experience as he decided to use Facebook as a "means of communication with students and parents outside of the classroom". He explains that he wrote this blog at early phase in this implementation and he is surprised that so few students have liked the page. I am hoping Jeremy Kaiser posts a follow-up with an update on his progress because I believe he will be successful in this implementation.
