Creating a Class Facebook Group Lisa Pignotti, Graduate Student in Written Communication Advantages Benefits Students can post: Questions about assignments Discussion Questions Articles/Videos related to research topics Instructor can post: Announcements Documents Surveys Questions Questions/Articles/Video related to research and topics Privacy settings allow open, closed, or secret groups Ability to invite students to join via university email Purpose of group can be clearly stated and remain visible for students Instructor can see who’s seen various posts Ability to comment and like posts by both students and instructor Regular notification about comments, posts, and likes Encouraging Student Participation A “posting” schedule divided students into six groups of four. Each group was assigned a week to post, and each group member was responsible to post an article or discussion question relevant to class. The remaining class members would then post one comment to a post of their choosing. Students earned participation and assignment points based on a one-time-minimum per week post or comment to the group.

Students, Facebook, and the Classroom Lisa Pignotti, Graduate Student in Written Communication Student Reactions “[I like that] people show interest and different insight to what we're learning in class, almost like an online class discussion.” “What I like most about the Facebook group page is that I can interact with my classmates outside of class whenever I have a question about an assignment.” “Facebook use to be something I did if I had time. Don't like to be required to get on FB.” I like it. It is helpful for assignment clarification and announcements I like it. The articles posted have been interesting and relevant to my research topic I like it. It has helped me connect and communicate with other students outside of the classroom I’m indifferent. I’ve found it helpful and interesting at times I dislike it. I don’t know why we have this group page. It is not helpful at all. I dislike it. I like using social media for personal time only, not for school Other
