Harnessing the power of social networking tools in the classroom can be very beneficial for all involved, including students, teachers and parents. Traditional thinking tells us that this works best (and maybe solely) in a secondary school setting. But it is also happening in an unlikely place - elementary schools. All too often elementary students are left behind in terms of using technology, but this session will showcase how one district, generally, and one 1st grade classroom, specifically, is embracing the use of Facebook in the classroom. And additionally, Facebook in these classrooms is not being used solely for communication, but for actual instructional purposes and writing practice.

 In this session, we will discuss:

  • How to implement Facebook at the elementary level
  • Using Facebook in ways beyond just communication
  • Regulations and guidelines for using Facebook in schools
