The issue of teachers using social media with students is an on-going question that been receiving a lot attention recently.
This is just the beginning of a “The Best…” list on the topic, and I hope readers will suggest additional resources.
You can find some additional resources at A Beginning List Of The Best Resources For Learning About Facebook.
