Use Facebook in School: Facebook Guide for Educators


Facebook Guide for Educators

Facebook Guide for Educators

A couple of months ago Facebook published ‘Facebook Guide for Educators’ which I was lucky enough to contribute to. Here is a taste:

“Schools are beginning to use Facebook Groups to communicate with students. This is a very powerful tool for sharing information and collaborating with students from a safe distance. Facebook Groups do not require members to be friends with each other. Members of the Groups can exchange files, links, information, polls and videos very quickly. Anytime someone contributes to the group its member will receive a notification. If you have the Facebook smartphone app these can be pushed to your device. Facebook Pages can also be used to create a central Page for students and teachers to share information”

Head of ICT at Kingston Grammar School

This is a fantastic document for those who are thinking about using Facebook in their institution or even those who are already using it.

The document includes lots of information about how Facebook can be used, case studies, guidance on privacy settings as well as how you can introduce Facebook at your school.

You can download the guide below:

I have recently completed a trial of Facebook use in my school which you can read below:

If you would like more advice on social media or would like me to come and speak at your school, head over to Realise Learning and get in touch.
