Can I Safely Use Facebook with Students for Class Interaction?

Between 80 and 90 percent of college students use Facebook.

If you want to connect with students, isn’t that where you should be?

That depends. Drawing on his background as a professor and educational technology consultant, presenter Barry Dahl, Ph.D., explores why you might—or might not—want to include Facebook in your online teaching toolbox.

In this Magna 20 Minute Mentor, you’ll explore what Facebook does well and how you can harness social media to support face-to-face and e-learning objectives.
