Facebook and Education
Facebook is an element of education in which I have always been familiar with. When going through my undergraduate program in college, Facebook was an up-and-coming trend and very popular for use with college students. Now, as an educator, I have continued to see Facebook used. I believe that for older students, Facebook is a very valuable resource. Educators are constantly looking for ways to engage and interest learners-especially in the high school years. Facebook provides a method that students are already familiar with to enhance, encourage, and allowed ease-of-use for student learning. Although there are always drawbacks to certain styles of teaching, I believe that the use of social networking is a very valuable resource.
