Facebook


It is interesting the county where I teach has a Facebook page, but I am not allowed to use it with my students even though it would be a great way for kids to communicate at night to help solve their questions.  Watch this video and you will understand why I hope we can use it one day before my students completely stop using e-mail and I have not way to communicate with them. It would be great if I could create a classroom where the teachers and students could not see each others' pages, but anything on the classroom wall would show up in their individual pages.  One day perhaps!

Does not Edmodo.com do exactly what you are asking? Students can't communicate with each other but only interact on the class page

It is why I like Edmodo, but they still have to log into Edmodo as opposed to always being on Facebook. My thought is that if they have a question while doing homework/studying, they will get a quick answer on Facebook and not have to wait for the teacher. Of course, students can still create their own class page, but the teacher would not be in it.
