Facebooking with students
Originally posted on Cooperative Catalyst:
I know it makes a lot of teachers nervous/sick-to-the-stomach, but I absolutely LOVE communicating with students through Facebook. Yes, I Facebook with students. In fact, I accept every request they send my way, because it is an incredible way to take seriously what I believe about relationships and learning.
I bring it up, because I had a fantastic exchange with an Algebra 2 student yesterday, and it couldn’t have happened if I refused or was prohibited from using Facebook with my students.
