2013 Course Technology Conference: Facebook in the Classroom

Facebook. As much as some people would like to ignore it, it is thoroughly engrained in today’s society. Melinda Doty uses this popular social networking tool to encourage interaction among her students. Whether it is a conversation about a current event or the latest assignment, she finds it’s a great way to get the class talking! In this presentation she demonstrates how she uses Facebook Groups to promote more interaction in all of her classes (face-to-face and online).
