Welcome to another Bright Ideas blog hop:) I am so glad you stopped by.
Maybe my idea isn't something new, or that "bright" but I have found using Facebook in the classroom has had a HUGE impact on my parent communication! I mean, almost everyone has a Facebook account...right?
I created a page under my own personal Facebook account. What I really like about this is that I can switch from my personal to my class easily! No logging out and logging in to a different account. When I post on the page, it posts as Mrs. Roller and not Tonya-my personal one.
What do I use it for?
-quick reminders for events
-requests for certain items. I really love when I say, "We're out of paper towels!" and I have some at the end of the day:)
-pictures of our work
-videos of activities
-parents can communicate with each other
Parents have commented how they can love they can be "right there" in the classroom as I can post right away at school! They think it's awesome to see daily updates about what's going on!
Do you use Facebook in the classroom? I'd love to hear how you use it! If you don't use it in the classroom, give it a shot! I think you will be impressed!
