Full course description
Facebook has 1.59 billion monthly users worldwide. According to the numbers, we're thinking that probably includes you, dear Teacher.
What the numbers don't show, however, is how familiar those 1.59 billion users are with the finer points of the platform beyond posting selfies or pictures from your latest culinary adventures. Nor do they indicate how or how often Facebook is best used by educators.
Which brings us to this micro-credential PD course!
We cover Facebook fundamentals, but if you already know how to navigate the site for social use, feel free to skip the basics and partake of only the sections you need. As long as you can demonstrate your competency in your AOK, you don't need to get all your knowledge from this course!
You'll quickly launch into creating groups and events that you can use with your classes, parent community, or grade level colleagues. You'll glean all-important tips for online safety, privacy, and how to use settings to customize your experience on Facebook. And you'll learn to find and build a professional network that will support and inspire you as an educator, with learning, news, and collegial conversation.
We invite you to choose the AOK option that results in work you can put into place with your students on the double. The micro-badge you'll earn shows you have the expertise to use Facebook safely and effectively as a professional and as part of your curriculum.
